Make sure your kids have a fun and safe ride with the Giro Me2 bike helmet for infants and toddlers. In addition to several colorfully fanciful designs--including yellow chicks, aviator pigs, pink bunnies, and red duck and goose--the helmet features 20 vents (protected with a built-in bug net) to help to keep your child's head cool. It also features Giro's Mini-Loc fit system with simple strap guides that enable your kid to put on the helmet without pinching skin. There's soft padding inside that feels great and a built-in visor for a bit of shade. This helmet is adjustable, enabling it to grow with your child. It's sized for infants and toddlers with heads measuring 18.75 to 20.5 inches in diameter.



20 vents with built-in bug netting keep your child's head cool.


Giro's Mini-Loc fit system features simple strap guides.

Fitting a Helmet
Here are some guidelines to getting the best fit for a bike helmet.

  • Eyes: The rim of the helmet should be up to 1 to 2 finger widths above the eyebrows
  • Ears: The straps should form a V under just beneath the ear lobe
  • Mouth: When the rider opens her mouth, the buckle should feel snug on the chin and the helmet should hug the head
Before using the helmet, stand in front of the mirror and grab the helmet with both hands and twist it to the left and to the right. If the helmet fits right, the skin on the forehead will move as the helmet moves. If it does not, then the helmet is too loose and is unsafe for use and you need to start over.

About Giro
Working late nights in his garage, designer/bike racer Jim Gentes created the first lightweight adult cycling helmet in 1985. Friends at NASA helped tune the final helmet shape and vent placement, and the result was the Giro Prolight, a helmet that was better looking than traditional designs while offering a superior fit and still met the industry's toughest safety standards. Plus, it was half the weight of traditional helmets. Since then, Giro has advanced its helmets, many of which have set the standards for styling, function, and innovation for progressive, performance-oriented riders on dirt, pavement, and snow. Giro helmets are worn by millions of riders, cyclists, skiers, and snowboarders around the world. Young-bloods and old-timers; hard-cores, heshers, and hipsters; rookies, experts, and a few regular Joes too--in fact, pretty much anyone that appreciates superior fit and function, cutting edge styling, and the very best ideas you get in a helmet.

I bought this helmet because it was the only infant helmet available locally at the time. However, although the price is a bit steep, when you take your childs safety into account, it's worth it. At first I had a bit of a problem figuring out how to fit it to a squirming toddler. But once I did figure it out, it's easy to adjust. I have now had it over a year, and it still going great. Deedee still loves her pink bunnies. It hasn't gotten used at much as I would have liked, but I'm glad that it's growing with her so we don't have to buy another one for her yet. I like that there are several cute designs to choose from. I have heard that it's better to have a smooth rounded back vs. a back that protrudes, however I can't say that I've noticed a difference. Both of my boys have Bell helmets that do protrude in the back, and they have never complained about it when riding in the trailer or in on of the infant seats. Although this is marketed as pinch free, expect that you will pinch your child once in a while. Especially if the chin strap is too tight. Still, it happens much less often than one the older style clips. Another eason I would reccomend this over a Bell is because of the dial in the back that tighten's/loosen's the strap to the perfect fit of the head without having adjust the chin strap. A child's Bell helmet doesn't have this feature.

I read a lot of different reviews for bike helmets including those of a well-known national consumer's group magazine. Our local sporting goods store has an array of helmets for kids age 3 and up, but just try and find one for an infant/toddler. Amazon's reviews were very helpful and I finally narrowed the choice down to the Bell Boomerang and the Giro Me2. Both were rated well, but the feature that got my vote for the Giro was the adjustable fit system. With just the twist of a knob (located at the rear of the helmet), the inside strap that encircles the infant's head can be tightened or loosened for a custom fit. This is particularly useful when dealing with an infant who is new to wearing a bike helmet, and therefore resistant to putting it on and fiddling too long with strap adjustments. Giro also includes some extra stick-on foam pads to help provide extra cushion and a good fit. I had the most difficulty finding the right position for the chinstrap. But I suspect with any brand helmet, it would take some finesse to cajole your infant while making the proper adjustment. My son, who is 10 months old, did not like it when I fastened the clip, but once we were on the bike, he loved it and totally forgot about wearing the helmet. I'm well satisfied with this purchase, plus with Amazon's free shipping, it was a good deal.

After couple of uses, the black plastic strap fell off.
Upon close examination, they are attached to the helmet by couple of sticky pads.

I've uploaded the resulting image so please take a look before purchasing this item.

Update 7/29:
Returned the Giro and purchased a "Bell Toddler Sprout Bike Helmet". Verified that the horizontal black strap is embedded into the helmet, and not attached using sticky pads like the Giro. I highly recommend taking a look at the Bell instead. It's also few dollars cheaper.

Update 5/31/13:
It appears that amazon has taken down my picture of the failed harness. Shame on Amazon for their biased action, and shame on CPSC for allowing this helmet to be on the market. If you have this helmet, give it a good tug on the straps and watch the harness fall apart.

My baby is 8 months old, and although he certainly does NOT enjoy having the helmet put on his head, it fits comfortably and safely. It takes awhile to adjust it, and I suggest setting aside time for fitting it to the baby BEFORE you attempt to take him/her out as doing so right before you want to leave will only frustrate you and probably really aggravate the baby, thus lending to an unpleasant bike ride/jog. Helmet is lightweight and secure. I would recommend it to a friend, and I would also purchase another if I have another baby.

Color Name: Red Duck, Duck Goose
It was really hard to find a helmet that would fit my son's head. He is 19 months and this helmet is the only one I could find that would come close to fitting. It is still a little big and the straps are kind of confusing to me. I think it will fit him better as he grows. But it works and is confortable on his head. He hates wearing hats or anything on his head and this doesn't bother him at all.

I am a semi pro rider, and custom bike builder.. STAY AWAY FROM THESE HELMETS!!!!!!
THEY DO NOT OFFER any forehead protection PERIOD!
My son was injured badly on the forehead after he took a dive over his bars. The helmet lifted up and his forehead was injured. If he would have had a bell fraction on, he would have been fine.. The helmet was fastened tight and the fit was perfect , but when it came to doing its job , if failed terribly!!!!!!!!!!!!
In my opinion these helmets should NOT exist!!!
IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR CHILD YOU will purchase a bell fraction , and not one of these GIMMICKS of a helemet!!!
I have NOTHING to do with bell company,,, so this is a real review///
Good luck, and check out the factions or the fractions.. THE ONLY SAFE HELMET FOR KIDS PERIOD!
