The Bern Major earned a 5-star safety rating from the Virginia Tech Helmet Lab, the highest possible rating on this test. Through a series of impact testing, the Virginia Tech Helmet Lab calculates a STAR score (Summation of Tests for the Analysis of Risk), which sums the exposure-weighted risks for common cyclist head impact scenarios and their corresponding concussion risks. Using 6 impact locations at 2 different velocities, the STAR equation evaluates 12 impact conditions representative of cycling accidents.

MIPS Brain Protection System
Rotational motion can cause brain injuries. The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10-15 mm in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact.
Comfortable, Stylish, and Lightweight!
Bern’s newest commuter-oriented bike helmet has been my partner throughout countless rides this spring and summer. The Major exceeded my highest expectations in regards to comfort, weight, ventilation, style, and more. Bravo, Bern!
Love it, Sam! Great shots. Awesome to hear you're enjoying the Major. Stay Out There!
High Quality but Pricey
We've heard Bern was the best so that was our first choice for helmets. The helmets are supremely well made but they are definitely expensive. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend.
Hey Logan, Thank you for the review! We appreciate you choosing to invest in your protection. Stay Out There!
The Major Bike Helmet from Bern keeps me safe while providing some sun protection and airflow to keep me cool while looking cool! It fits perfectly and I adore the matte orchid color.
Glad you're digging your Major Brenna :) Stay Out There!!!
Major Bike Helmet
Love it, and great fit. My head measurement was at the top end for the small and I wasn’t sure if I should get a small or medium. The small was perfect. Once I got mine I was so impressed that I purchased one for my husband as well.
Hey Barbara, Thank you for the sweet review on your new Major Helmet! So happy to hear the small fit you well. Love that you guys will be rocking your matching Majors! Stay Out There!
I love this helmet! The VT 5 star rating was a huge selling point for me. It has city style without sacrificing protection! One thing to note is that the shell is similar to a roadie style helmet and is not made of thick plastic. I'm sure that was necessary for the higher safety rating, but just know you shouldn't be throwing this helmet around or it'll get dented up! I'm a 59 cm (right on the edge between M and L), and the Medium fits great. It doesn't feel maxed out or too tight. Highly recommend!
Hey Carson, Awesome to hear you're enjoying the new Major Helmet! We love the feedback and glad to hear you found the medium a perfect fit. Stay Out There!
