  • Re: Research Question

    I found only one source that discusses bicycle helmets and body

    Ellis, A.J., Bertolini, A.F., Thompson, L.A. A review of research on
    bicyle helmet ventilation. Sports Engineering 3(3), 2000,

    Perhaps articles regarding body temperature and helmets would be of use to
    your research:

    Sheffield-Moore M, Short KR, Kerr CG, Parcell AC, Bolster DR, Costill DL
    Thermoregulatory responses to cycling with and without a helmet.
    Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. 29(6):755-61, 1997 Jun.

    Antonelli, Massimo MD. Conti, Giorgio MD. Pelosi, Paolo MD. Gregoretti,
    Cesare MD. Pennisi, Mariano Alberto MD. Costa, Roberta MD. Severgnini,
    Paolo MD. Chiaranda, Maurizio MD. Proietti, Rodolfo MD. New treatment of
    acute hypoxemic respiratory failure: Noninvasive pressure support
    ventilation delivered by helmet-A pilot controlled trial.
    Critical Care Medicine. 30(3):602-608, March 2002.

    Ellis, A. Are helmets with many vents all show and no airflow?
    Bicycling Australia 12(1), Jan/Feb 2001, 56;58;60;62;64;66;68

    Bertolini, A.F., Thompson, L.A. A review of research on bicyle helmet
    ventilation. Sports engineering 3(3), 2000, 185-194

    John, D., Dawson, B. The effects of wearing 2 different cycling helmets
    on thermoregulatory responses to prolonged submaximal exercise in hot, dry
    conditions. Journal of human movement studies 16(4), 1989, 203-214


    Actually getting away from the phrase "bicycle helmet" leads to productive
    results regarding cycling and helmets and thermoregulation of which the
    articles below the first one are good indicators.

    I hope this is of help to you with your research.
