One of the most visible gear the Tour de France riders use is the helmet, besides their bikes and sunglasses. Many brands are known to release new models just in time for the Tour de France to gain maximum publicity. After all, the Tour de France is the pinnacle cycling race of the year.

Each team is provided with three types of helmets;

  • Aero helmets for maximizing aerodynamics and speeds. These are commonly used on flat and sprint finish stages and have minimal air vents to allow the air to flow smoothly through the helmet surface.
  • Lightweight helmets are all about weight and breathability and are preferred for hilly and mountainous stages where each gram matters. These helmets have up to 20 air vents for maximum ventilation to cool down the riders.
  • Time trial (TT) helmets are only used during time trials. Many models have just a handful of air vents (if any) as the helmet is designed to maximize aerodynamics.

All the helmet models are the brand’s top-of-the-line and/or latest models. Depending on the brands and models, they can cost anywhere from $200 to $400.

In 2023, there will be 16 bike helmet brands present at the Tour de France.

Ekoi (4 teams) and Specialized (3 teams) helmets are the most represented, followed by Abus (2 teams). The notable helmet brands absent are Bell and Giro.
