There are different sizes and shapes of these covers and their shapes are also different so the shape of the helmet too will differ according to the type and design. You should know the shape of your helmet and also the size before buying a helmet cover because this will help you get a good fitting.

This type of cover should be purchased separately for the bicycle and not any other type of cover. A helmet cover is mainly for protection purposes only and so you can buy one from a store but do not buy the other type of cover for it as the covers of your bicycle will have separate protection.

If the helmet has a built-in visor, then the cover will not fit properly unless the helmet is the right size for the cover. A helmet cover is generally recommended for children’s bikes where the visor is not meant to be installed as it will not provide protection.

There are several online stores that sell helmet mountain bike covers and the price will depend on the number of covers, the size of the helmet, and the company selling it. If you are unable to find the correct size cover then you can order it from one of the many online stores. You can look them up online.


It is important to take your time when selecting the right type of helmet cover. The wrong type of helmet cover will not provide protection and it will not be comfortable as it might be loose and the material can come loose when you take it off or move it around.

The helmet cover should have the right kind of material and fit and this will ensure that the helmet is securely in place and does not move around when you wear it. If you are using your helmet to ride in windy conditions then you need a cover that provides adequate ventilation.

Final Thoughts

There are also some helmets that have extra vents built into them so that air can circulate while you are riding in a windy environment. Other models are designed to provide better ventilation for the rider.
