Which helmet size for which age?

Choosing the right helmet size is crucial for safety. Start by measuring the circumference of your head, as the size of the helmet depends on this. The measurement should be taken above the eyebrows and around the widest part of the back of the head. A helmet size of 48-52 cm is usually suitable for kids aged 3-5 years. Kids aged 5-8 years usually need a size of 52-57 cm. Sizes vary more strongly for older kids and adults. It is therefore always advisable to try on a helmet before buying. Remember that the bike helmet should fit snugly without exerting pressure or being uncomfortable.

Differences between kids' and adult helmets

Kids' helmets and adult helmets differ in several aspects, mainly due to the different requirements of the two age groups. Firstly, the size and weight of the helmets vary. Kids' helmets are usually smaller and lighter to take into account the smaller head circumference and neck muscles of children. The design of the helmets can also vary. Finally, the safety requirements can also vary. Children's helmets often have to meet stricter safety standards, as children are considered to be particularly vulnerable road users.

What to look out for when buying a cycling helmet for kids

Safety is the top priority when buying a cycling helmet for kids. Check whether the helmet complies with the European safety standards EN 1078 or EN 1080. The helmet should also fit well and not slip. An adjustable retention system and soft, adjustable chin straps also contribute to the right fit. Make sure the helmet is lightweight so that it is not too heavy for the child's head. Ventilation openings ensure comfort in warm weather. Another important aspect is visibility. A helmet in bright colours or with reflective elements increases safety on the road. Finally, design can play a role, as a visually appealing helmet is more likely to be worn.

Tips for fitting and adjusting your helmet correctly

Fitting and adjusting your helmet correctly is crucial for your safety. Start by putting the helmet on your head and make sure it fits snugly but doesn't pinch uncomfortably. The front edge should be about two finger widths above the eyebrows. The helmet should sit straight on your head and not tilt forwards or backwards. Then adjust the straps so that they are snug but not too tight. The buckle should sit under the chin and the chin strap should be tightened until it is snug but comfortable. Check the adjustments regularly to make sure the helmet fits properly.
