Which Bike Helmet Is The Best? (TEST)

– What's the best bike helmet to wear in a sword fight? – Let's talk about that (alarm rings) (playful theme music) (fire blasts) Good Mythical Morning

– Bicycles, they're a great way to get around town while also getting some exercise, being eco-conscious, and putting undo stress on your grundle – Okay, well today we're not gonna help you de-stress your grundle, but we are gonna help you protect that noggin by determining the best bike helmet you can get for under $100 It's time for– ♪ I'm on a highway to hel ♪ ♪ Met ♪ ♪ To see which one's the best ♪ – Okay now we've developed a series of rigorous but in absolutely no way frivolous bike helmet test Somebody may get hurt I hope it's not me

Perhaps I should wear a helmet – Ho! We're gonna eliminate the worst performing helmet in each round until we have one winner remaining – Here are the helmets that we're gonna be testing The Bel Adult Quake bike helmet at $35 – [Rhett] The Kali protective Chakra Plus bike helmet for $50

– [Link] The Bern Lennox at $60 – [Rhett] The Abus Hyban Urban helmet with integrated LED taillight for $70 – [Link] And the Giro Hex mountain bike helmet at $80 – To the bike safety zone! – We're on our rooftop – Now you could ride your bike on the street, but then you've gotta contend with cars, so you should be riding on the top of buildings

You should be a roof rider – Roof rider! – And if you are a roof rider, you wanna have a helmet that will protect your head if you fall off of the building – So we have weighted these helmets with a bunch of eggs to represent your highly crackable head and we're gonna toss 'em to the ground and see how they withstand the drop (rock music) – Three – Okay

– Two, one (angelic choral music) (helmets thumping) – [Link] Woo! – Oh – What a mess! – [Rhett] A lot of brains – All right, let's suss it out – Okay I think it's safe to say that all of these people were injured

We have in this first one which is the Giro, we have two fully in tact eggs Okay for this one which is the Abus, or Abbis, we're not really sure – [Link] Looks like a vulture got in there – (chuckles) We have no in tact eggs Okay so this is at the bottom right now

– All right and for the Kali Not in tact In tact – Oh, okay – The Bel

– [Rhett] Oh look at that Just like just a regular nest down there – [Link] No they're all bursted – Except– – There's one – One full in tact

– One fully in tact (smashes egg) Until right there, okay And finally the Bern Ah, there ain't nothing in tact in here, man – [Rhett] Okay so it's down to the Abus and the Bern

– With the Bern, a lot of the brains exited the nest – Right, if you're gonna crush your brains, you at least want them to stay inside of the helmet – There's lots of mixed up brains but they're still in there So it's pretty clear to me The Bern gets burnt

(rock music) Let's say you got a paper route in Arizona and you partied too hard at your company July 4th celebration, so you wake up the next day at noon and you're like, I've gotta deliver these papers, but what the crap, it is hot! – Yes and you don't want your human head to cook inside of your helmet and human heads are expensive so instead of those we're using steaks, along with these heat guns We're going to eliminate the helmet that lets the steak cook the most Fire up your guns, Link (heat guns whirring) – All right, even heat on both of these Ooh that's hot

– Now, you may be tempted to say, hold on a second, guys The one with the ventilation should be the most cooling, because that would let in the most air You may have even gone as far as to already comment that You know what, you're wrong, because the ventilating slits actually let heat in and they cook your brain as if it were a steak – Stop trying to be right about everything

– This is science! – My arms are getting tired I'm not commenting about that – Now I am noticing some crispiness A little meltiness on the helmets themselves At least these two

– That smells bad – (chuckles) Yeah, you wanna start thinking it smells good and then you smell the burning helmet – Ugh Ugh! – Okay, let's stop Heat guns off

– All right, let's start over here with the Kali Woo that's hot! There we go Now if I look at this steak even from the back right there, there's a little bit of cookage but not much at all The Abus, Abus kadabbus – That's pretty good as well

It's cooked a little bit more in the front – It's cooked more – It's a little bit closer to the cerebral cortex where you make your decisions Let's check out the Bel Oh wow

– [Link] Whoa – We got a pretty cooked steak here Bel, not faring well – No and look at the helmet itself You really blasted that spot, but that's how the sun would do it

– Yeah you would be down to just reptilian functions at this point You would be running on instinct And now we're gonna get into the Giro Is it Jee-ro, is it Jai-ro? Is it hero? – Gee-ro – Gee-ro

– [Link] Guy-ro – [Rhett] Oh, oh, oh, it's pretty cooked as well – [Link] Yeah, it is – But I can tell right off the bat, the Bel is cooked more, man Okay, just as a final check here, these are all the steak brains

– Mine look great – Mine are both pretty cooked but I think we can definitely see that the Bel got the most cooked Therefore, your brain would be the most cooked, and therefore Bel, I'm sorry, you made it to round two, but now you're eliminated – You know (rock music) The helmets aren't the only thing you might need a helmet to protect your head from

Sometimes you might be biking with your friends, take a wrong turn, and end up in a bad neighborhood – Did somebody say bad neighborhood? – I did, yes – Yeah, this is a real bad neighborhood, you know why, because we all walk around with swords – Who are you? – My name is Paul And there was a– – Hey Paul

– There was a shipment of swords in a truck and it fell over and we all got a sword We've been carrying swords for years – Okay, you seem like a nice enough guy– – We don't put up with things in our neighborhood, like, for instance, this little part of children that are riding through my neighborhood without their parents They shouldn't be doing that They need to be taught a lesson, get out of the way

(angelic choral music) (grunts) – What the crap, Paul? – Yeah, take that! He's still got a thumbs up He hasn't learned his lesson but you know what? I'm gonna teach it to his little friend (angelic choral music) (sword thumping) – Ooh – These kids are tough They stay up on the bikes

I've never seen it before Never happens like this (angelic choral music) (sword thumping) Hyah! – Yeah, good one! That's a bad one – That kid has a tough helmet – Yeah! It was so resilient

– Very impressive – You did not get through it – No, never happened before – [Link] It's amazing This one's definitely going through to the next round

The Giro's got a nice slice on it, so we may be, how do I get this thing off? – Well there's a little strap and you just undo it Like all helmets – Thank you – [Rhett] This kid has another problem he should see someone about – [Link] Let's take the Kali off too, 'cause I don't know if the, oh look at that

If you look at the– – It's a nice slice there – So this helmet, it definitely went all the way through Did that one go all the way through? – [Rhett] Oh yeah – Oh yeah, well this has got a bigger slice on the styrofoam, which means that the Kali is eliminated (rock music) – And now the crush test

– There comes a time in every man's life when he wants to get out on the road and do a little street tanning and just spread out there, but hey, don't forget your helmet, 'cause you don't know when some four by four is gonna come creeping along with its wheels perfectly aligned with your noggin – Yeah, so we have strapped watermelons into our two final helmets and now we're gonna run over 'em (rock music) (helmets crushing) – Oh, I think that was them – [Rhett] That felt good, okay Oh you know what, the light's on on this one

That's a good sign – Yeah that one is faring a lot better than this one Look at that crush job Oh my gosh – There's a flatness to this

Obviously the noggin has been completely destroyed There's no more thoughts in there – Oh wow Look at that flatness – Now you can see, I mean obviously fully crushed, but it still has somewhat– – Integrity

– It has some integrity – And the light's still on! – The fact that the light came on – [Link] I think the results are clear – Yes, our winner, the official Good Mythical Morning best helmet is the Abus Hyban urban helmet with integrated LED taillight – You did, it buddy
