Whether your little ones ride pillion on the back of your road motorcycle, or they plan to be the next Jeremy McGrath and they’re already getting into motocross, you will need well-fitting helmets in order to keep the munchkins as safe as possible.
Things to consider when choosing a motorcycle helmet for a child
- Compliance with latest EU regulations
All helmets worn when riding a motorcycle must meet the latest EU compliance. Check for the latest ECE compliance number, and ensure any helmets you are considering purchasing meet this requirement.
- Sizes suitable for children
You could risk it with an adult size Small, but we strongly recommend choosing ‘Junior’ helmets, which are available in a range of smaller sizes to ensure the best, safest possible fit to protect your kid’s noggin.
Kids grow out of things fast. Like, really fast. So, while you want a quality, safe helmet, you also don’t want to spend a fortune in case they need a bigger one in a year’s time. It might be friendlier on the wallet if you can choose a helmet which you wouldn’t mind buying again in a larger size this time next year. Or, imagine spending £500 on a helmet, handing it to your little whippersnapper and seeing it fall straight from their hands onto the concrete floor. Yep, best watch the budget.
- Design and colours
Kids want to look cool. We don’t need to evidence this; you know it already. Make sure you choose a helmet brand with an array of designs and colours available so that you can choose the perfect colour and style to reflect your little one’s personality.
There’s a lot to consider, but it’s worth thinking about. Fortunately, you’re already in the right place to buy the best motorcycle helmet for your kid, your friend’s kid, your niece, nephew or your grandchild.
