6 Ponytail Friendly Helmets For The Lady Cyclists

 It is 2018, and equality means females can also cycle as well as males. Equality also means that no matter your gender, age or job, the length of your hair does not matter. Thus, most people with long hair would choose to tie their hair in ponytails before going on a ride to avoid hair flying in their faces.

However, the cycling helmet industries were not prepared for this, resulting the small number of ponytail friendly helmets. Few people would choose to tie their hair in pigtails or a low ponytail that sticks out at the back of their neck. Therefore, ponytail friendly helmets were invented. Here are a few ponytail compatible helmets.
