Choosing a helmet that your child will want to wear is the first step in convincing them that it’s a great thing to do. At Salt Dog Cycling we have a range of colourful kids bike helmets in funky, cool designs that will attract the younger members of your family and ensure they are happy and eager to be seen in theirs.
All of our kids bike helmets meet the required safety standards and are suitable for all outdoor-wheeled adventures from cycling and scootering, skateboarding and skating. Their bright designs increase visibility to road users, and make sure you can spot them in more crowded areas.
Our helmets have lightweight inner shells with padding to ensure a good fit and overall comfort, adjustable straps, a quick release buckle fastener and an external hard shell.
Getting the right fit is really important, especially for young children. For those children cycling in child seats our top tips will help ensuring the safest fit:
Avoid buying a helmet which is slightly too big for younger children; the space between the back of the head and the helmet can push the child’s head forward when resting against the seat. We recommend going for a helmet with a small size range like the Alpina Ximo LE Kids Cycling Helmet in which goes down to 47m to 51cm in the smaller size.
To get the best fit, measure your child’s head with a tape measure around the fullest part of their head, approximately an inch above their eyebrows.
