The most important piece of protection, the helmet for children protects the head against all the shocks caused during the practice of a sliding sport. It is essential for the protection of this part of the body so fragile, and must be chosen scrupulously to ensure its role to perfection. The Nomadeshop store has all the children's helmets that combine efficiency, robustness and aesthetics.
Why impose the helmet on your budding riders?
As we know, wearing a helmet is sometimes restrictive for the child. However, it is essential in the event of a fall, because it alone can protect the cranium and the brain from possible injuries. No need to explain how a head injury can be dangerous, so remember above all that the risk of accident is higher in children, because their motor and cognitive abilities are not yet fully developed. Thus, if wearing a helmet for skateboarding, rollerblading, scootering or cycling is not mandatory, it must nevertheless be systematic for small heads in search of thrills. To ensure total reliability, it is strongly recommended to use child protection helmets that meet the NF EN 1078 standard, the French standard for all cycling helmets for bicycles, skateboards or inline skates.
How to choose a children's helmet?
For a helmet to fully ensure the safety of a child , it is imperative to choose the right model. For this, 3 essential criteria must be taken into account:
- The size of the child's helmet : to find out, all you have to do is measure the cranial perimeter (or head circumference), then refer to the size correspondences for each model.
- The straps (or dividers): the straps which start from the helmet, surround the ear and pass under the chin, at the level of the neck, must be perfectly adjusted, so that the helmet is properly fixed and absolutely cannot move.
- The adjustment wheel : a child helmet often has a wheel on the back of the head, allowing the size of the helmet to be adjusted . Here again, it must be adjusted so that the helmet is firmly fixed on the head.
You can then focus on additional details, allowing to bring more comfort to the mini rider, such as ventilation, or padding.
Finally, it will be necessary to remember to change children's helmets as they grow, in order to constantly offer them head protection perfectly suited to their size.
