Checklist For Bike Helmets For Kids

Checklist Bicycle Helmets For Children

  • The bicycle helmet must fit tightly on the head and must not wobble. Before buying, measure the circumference of your child’s head and then choose the right model. Many models still have a head ring in the helmet , which can be adjusted exactly to the head.
  • Many manufacturers specify the size of the helmet in normal clothing sizes. Do not rely on this information, because the head size often differs, especially for children.
  • Make sure that the head is completely enclosed. In the back, the helmet should reach to the neck and in the front to the middle of the forehead.
  • The retaining strap should be routed past the child ‘s ears in a triangular pattern. These straps provide more stability than simple straps.
  • The fastener of the retaining strap should be sturdy, but should also be able to be operated by the child.
  • Make sure that the helmet has ventilation slots. Otherwise, there is a risk of overheating when the outside temperature is high. The slits are ideally equipped with a net so that no insects can fly into the helmet while driving.
  • As soon as your child gets his first bicycle, the bicycle helmet belongs to the basic equipment. If you take younger children on your own bike or in a trailer, the child should also wear a helmet. However, only when it can hold its head by itself. For newborns, the shock is too great.
  • The bicycle helmet should have reflectors and be as bright a color as possible. This way, your child will not be overlooked in traffic.
  • Some helmet models have a flashing light. So your child is visible to other road users even at dusk.
  • If your child had an accident with the helmet, it should be replaced. Even if it has no visible damage, safety can no longer be guaranteed. In this case, a new bicycle helmet is needed.
  • Test seals help with the purchase decision: the TÜV awards its GS sealfor safe bicycle helmets.

FAQ For Bicycle Helmets For Kids

What size for children’s bike helmets?

Manufacturer sizes can vary, but generally size XS fits from up to 3 years, size S from about 2 to 7 years, S/M can be worn from 7 to about 9 years and size M should fit from about 4 years up.

What to look for in bicycle helmets for children?

The most important criterion for bicycle helmets (not only for children) is safety. Therefore, the helmet should of course comply with the established safety standards (EN 1078). Furthermore, it is important that the size is properly matched and the air vents are not accessible to insects. A bee in the helmet is not only painful, but can also lead to accidents.

Bicycle helmet from when?

Children are not allowed to ride a bicycle until they can already sit independently. This is usually the case from six months at the earliest. As soon as a child rides on a bicycle (child bike seat or later independently), a helmet must be worn to minimize the risk of serious injury.

How long does a bicycle helmet for children last?

If your child uses a bicycle helmet regularly, it should be replaced every 3 to 5 years, as the protective effect wears off. If your child does fall, it may be a good idea to replace the helmet as well. However, exposure to sunlight can also cause the material to loosen and no longer provide effective protection.

How should a bicycle helmet for children fit?

The bicycle helmet should have straps that go around your child’s ear in a triangular shape. The helmet should also not fit too tightly, so that it does not constrict your child or even cause headaches. Therefore, it can be useful to measure the head size before buying

Which bicycle helmet is safe for children?

A bicycle helmet should have reflectors so that your child can be seen in the dark. The manufacturer’s specifications or certain test seals will help you determine whether the helmet is safe for your child. Flashing lights on the helmet can also provide visibility.

Do children have to wear a bicycle helmet?

Children under the age of 12 are only required to wear a helmet in Austria. There, your child must also wear a helmet when riding on a bicycle seat. In Germany, however, there is no such regulation. You must therefore decide for yourself whether your child should protect itself with a helmet. However, it is recommended because otherwise your child can suffer serious head injuries in the event of a fall.

How can a bicycle helmet for children be cleaned?

It makes sense to clean a bicycle helmet regularly. This way, you can detect scratches or major damage to the helmet more quickly and replace it if necessary, if the safety of your child is no longer guaranteed. Superficial dirt can be easily removed with a damp cloth. When driving, your child will probably also sweat. Some manufacturers allow the inner padding to be removed and washed in the washing machine.
