Racing Headset Types

Let's help you find the right headset kit! The first thing you want to decide is whether you want "Behind-the-Head" or "Over-the-Head" headsets. A "Behind-the-Head" design features the headband that goes behind the head and a velcro strap that goes over the top. This is popular with race drivers and pit crews because it provides dual headset support in high motion racing while eliminating bulky headbands over the top of the head, leaving individuals free to wear a hat or safety helmet over the velcro head strap.

The "Over-the-Head" headsets provide a traditional fit and look while also being a preferred style and fit for kids. There is no performance difference in the two styles of headsets and both types are equally popular among race teams, and recreational riders. It simply boils down to preference.
