BBB Griffon, £49.95,

Watch the Tour de France very closely and you’ll have seen Confidis, Quick-Step and Vacansoleil riders wearing BBB helmets. They offer several models and this is its midpriced all-rounder. It has an in-moulded shell construction with 16 large vents to stop your head over-heating, easy-to-adjust straps, washable anti-bacterial pads and reflective stickers at the rear. Helmet fit is hugely subjective: our smaller-headed tester found the fit fairly generous, but once adjusted it didn’t ride down.

Six colours, sizes M (55-58cm) and L (58-62cm). Jane K
