1、 Why wear a children's helmet?


Children should wear helmets when riding bicycles, scooters, and roller skates, as well as corresponding helmets when riding bicycles, motorcycles, and electric scooters. This is to prevent problems before they occur, because the head is an important and fragile part of the human body, which is more important for children. The younger the age, the larger the volume occupied by the head, and the more likely it is to be injured. So, in order for children to coordinate their movements and develop normally, parents should always pay attention to their children's situation and protect their heads during dangerous activities such as riding bicycles and motorcycles. Wearing a children's helmet can greatly protect children.


The reason for wearing specialized children's helmets instead of adult helmets is, on the one hand, because adult helmets are too large to be worn loosely and cannot be protected; On the other hand, if an adult helmet is too large, it will cover most of the child's perspective, making it difficult for the child to predict danger. And if the perspective is too narrow and the helmet is too heavy, children will dislike wearing a helmet, so special children's helmets need to be prepared.


2、 How to choose a children's helmet


Children's helmets should choose the appropriate size and comfort to provide better protection. When parents buy children's helmets, they should try to take their children to physical stores to try them on. When choosing, the following issues should also be considered:


1. Size of children's helmets


Before selecting a helmet, measure the child's head circumference, wrap a soft band around the area with the largest head circumference (2.5cm above the child's eyebrows), measure the length of the child's head, and choose the appropriate size helmet based on the head circumference.


2. Comfort of children's helmets


In addition to its own size, important details also lie inside the helmet. As an important head protection device, the helmet is usually made of EPS foam pad, which can reduce the impact force after the head is hit, thus playing a protective role. The inner lining can also affect wearing comfort, so it is important to choose carefully.


3. The adjustment function of children's helmets


Sometimes, although children's helmets are of appropriate size, they may feel a bit loose when worn. This may be because the internal size has not been adjusted properly, or the helmet does not have an internal adjustment function and can only be adjusted for tightness by adjusting the tension rope on both sides of the child's cheeks.


4. Try on


After the child wears the helmet, adjust the overall tightness of the helmet, fasten the buckle, and slightly shake his head to see if the helmet will follow the swing. If the swing is severe, it means that your helmet has not been adjusted to the appropriate tightness or the quality of the helmet is not good.


5. Pay attention to the issue of water chestnuts


Some children's helmets are designed with diamond corners at the back, which are said to reduce wind resistance. However, if a child accidentally tilts back, it is very easy to hurt their neck due to the edges, so it is not recommended to choose this type of helmet.
