Abstract

The invention relates to a method of reducing wind noise experienced by a cyclist wearing a cycling helmet. A cycling helmet (12) has a shell (16) and two chin strap assemblies (18, 20) fast therewith. Each chin strap assembly comprises a front strap (22) for location in front of one of the ears (32, 34) of a cyclist, a rear strap (24) for location behind said ear, and a clasp (26) securing the straps together. The method includes twisting each front strap about a longitudinal axis thereof, such that one edge of each front strap, along at least part of the length of the front strap, is lifted away from the associated side of the head of the cyclist, so that the front straps act as air- deflectors for deflecting flow of air away from sides of the cyclist's head. The invention extends to an attachment (36) for attaching to the front strap of a strap assembly of a cycling helmet.
