First of all it is important to remember that bike helmets are safety equipment and not toys. Standards are put in place to help you in your choice and allow you to turn to reliable helmets in terms of security.
Choose a bike helmet for your child, at the right size!
A helmet adapted to your child, is a helmet at the right size. Too big, the helmet may slip. Too small, it will not cover certain areas. A danger in case of a fall in both cases. To find the right size for your child's bike helmet, measure his head circumference 2cm above the eyebrows.
Importance of the settings
Choose a bike helmet that you can adjust in several points. Head circumference, jugular strap, adjustment under the ears. This will ensure a good support and a good stability of the helmet on the head of your child. A well-tuned helmet is a headphone straight on the head, which does not slip on one side or the other, well pressed on the skull and adjusted to the level of the head circumference. The Y strap should be adjusted under the ears. Finally the jugular strap must be tight enough to let only two fingers under the chin.
Aeration, LEDs, UV protection, earmuffs, ... Manufacturers are overflowing with imagination and ingenuity to offer you more technical helmets and adapted to everyday uses. It's up to you to decide what your child needs most.
