Choosing a Helmet for Kids: Safety and Comfort First
When it comes to riding motorcycles, safety is a priority for everyone, especially children. Kids' helmets are designed not only to be secure but also to be comfortable and appealing to young riders. Here are some factors you should consider while choosing the right helmet for your child:
- Right Size is Crucial:
- Finding the right size is paramount for effective protection. If you're shopping in-store, it's beneficial to try on various helmets. Once the strap is fastened, ensure the helmet is snug without wobbling or shifting. For online purchases, use a tailor's tape to measure your child's head circumference and consult our size charts, keeping in mind that sizes may vary between brands.
- Design and Material:
- A well-designed helmet comprises high-impact ABS for the outer shell and quality expanded polystyrene (EPS) for the inner lining. The visor should be clear, and the padding should be neither too soft nor too hard, allowing for a snug fit.
- Brand and Warranty:
- We recommend branded helmets as they come with the assurance of quality and safety, as well as a warranty. Given that children may not always handle their helmets gently, having a warranty can be quite beneficial. Be sure to check the specific terms of the warranty for your chosen brand.
- Allergy Prevention:
- Comfort is key, especially for kids. Look for helmets that feature hypoallergenic linings to minimize the risk of skin irritation, especially when exposed to sweat and dust.
