Customer support at [...] was very helpful in sorting through which model of V-17 helmet is for children 5+ (small shell) and which is for children 8+ (medium shell). The children 5+ small one is the one reviewed here and was only available online at the time of this purchase. The model number is 97780. If you want the small one be sure it has this model number as opposed to 97778 which is the bigger one for 8+ years old.

My son is almost 5 and still this helmet was pretty loose on him. It comes with two foam inserts, one is slightly thicker than the other. However, they are not meant to be used both at the same time. We have to use them both (safety pinned in) to make it snug. I wish this helmet came with inserts that were desinged to be added to the existing foam to make it tighter instead of designed to use one insert or the other. I later saw another 5+ helmet (may have been a Tony Hawk one) at Toys R Us that had much thicker foam padding and fit him tighter.

Still he loves the helmet and it looks sharp on him. It is of high quality in my opinion.

1/8/2010 update. Helmet still great for my 6.5 yr old son. BTW, if looking for the satin pink version of this helmet, the model number is 97784 and if looking for the matte black version of this helmet, the model number is 97785.

97780 - Child's gloss black
97785 - Child's matte black
97784 - Child's satin pink

After not finding the measurements of this helmet anywhere online, I just ordered it to see if it would fit. It's a little too big for my relatively large three-year-old but he'll eventually grow into it. Regardless, this is what I measured for the inside circumference:
~60 cm without inserts
~55 cm with the included soft, padded inserts
A sticker on the inside of the helmet states that it is for children 5 years and older.

The helmet looks nice and well made although I can't attest to functionality.

Hope others find this useful especially since I couldn't find it anywhere.

I bought this helmet for my son after his bicycle helmet was broken. The plastic coating was slowly chipping off, and then harness came undone and I didn't trust myself to properly repair it. He really liked the look of the multi-sport helmets. This one came and it is great. All the neighbor kids love it and want their moms and dads to get one for them too. I would recommend this product for a few reasons: First off, it is hard enough to get your kid to wear a helmet. Not very many kids want to wear a real bicycle helmet. They are bulky, have a pointed front and an not the best protection in the back. This helmet is a little more stylish, well made, seems much more durable than most of the helmets I had to chose from. Get this one for your kids, I think they are great!! It is also hard to order a helmet for kids online, because the sizing can be so confusing. This is great for my 5 year old, it came with extra pads, and I just put them in and it fit his head great. I would say this is going to get a lot of years out of it because when itake out the extra pads, it will fit him for quite a while.

We bought this one (and a black one) for our daughter (5) and son (3). They are slightly larger than expected however the pads enclosed for fit are great until they grow into them. The size recommendation from Razor was accurate (my kids have large heads, both well over the 50% percentile mark for age) so we went a bit larger on sizing, hoping to get more use out of each helmet. The pink is really bold - be forewarned - but my daughter loves it. The helmets are eagerly worn by both - no fighting to get them into them; hopefully, this transitions them into bike helmets as we get closer to spring/summer.

My three year old has a huge head. This is a great helmet for her size, and she loves the look too...it isnt a struggle at all to get her to wear it.

This one is good enough to protect kid's head, but have to be careful whit small belt to fix the helmet, because this one can pinch kid's skin, and then they won't wear the helmet! believe me, true story

They really need to work on sizing though. Bought this for my 6 year old and it was so big it was like putting a bucket on her head. No - she is not a small child. Product says fits 5-8 year olds. Thing fit me and I am 50

Solid construction and good quality, but there is no interior adjustment strap. The interior is a hard foam core, so unless the helmet happens to fit your child's head exactly, the helmet will be next to useless.

My daughter is 6 & the helmet fits her perfectly (minus the hair bows & barrettes). She likes the color & the style of the helmet.
