We spent 27 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. If you're a bike commuter, the last thing you want to do is lug your headgear around the office or have to carry it with you to the bar for some post-work drinks. Thanks to these foldable helmets, however, you don't have to. They feature collapsible designs that allow them to be easily stowed away in a backpack or even a purse, yet they'll protect your dome, just like their less compact brethren. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best folding bike helmet on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 22, 2019:

Added the Brooks England Carrera Collaboration and the Closca Nordic for the style they bring; after all, you can hide your helmet away, but people will see it when you're riding, so why not have the most chic look possible? Additionally, double-checked to ensure that all models are CPSC certified for safety. Many are also certified safe to the European standard (EN 1078).

January 15, 2019:

If you're a bike commuter who hates lugging around all that bulky headgear, the models on this list can feel like a godsend. Each option boasts its own innovative design that allows it to compress down for easy packing, whether it's the accordion style of the Brooks England Foldable or the nesting style of the Closca Collapsible Kids. We felt the Morpher Black Flat had the most ergonomic design of all, since it reduces a good 50 percent from its original size and also carries safety ratings from the US CPSC.
