Eating lunch can be dangerous

The latest advice guide from the BMC Technical Committee covers all you'll ever need to know about helmets. Available as a free download, it will be equally useful whether you're new to the sport or a seasoned veteran.

If you are choosing a new helmet, this guide will help you select from the many available. You'll find advice on care and maintenance, and guidance on when to retire your helmet. It contains information on how the different types of helmets work, and a brief history of climbing helmets. Finally there is a summary of helmet standards and where to obtain further information.
