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.

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
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.

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.
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.
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.
I was excited about this brand of helmet because of our history. Both myself and my older daughter have a Giro ski helmet and that helmet fits great.
I have to say that I expected that the Giro Me2 Infant/Toddler Bike helmet that we purchased would have atleast lasted a year or two. Instead we got about 2 1/2 months use out of it before it began to fall apart.
The hard outer shell has now unstuck so that you can see the styrofoam part underneath. From the very first time my baby wore it the inside never fit correctly. The tabs that are stuck to the adjustment bar unstuck and her hair would get caught in it and actually pull it out when we took the helmet off. Ouch!
We are not hard on any of our toys/gear and always take good care of things so that they will last. Perhaps we got a lemon?? Or maybe we should have gone with the Bell helmet from Target?
First let me preface my review to say this IS a Giro and is - for me - the most trustworthy name in bike helmets. I use a giro for myself and love it. My criticism is specific to the horror of combining this helmet with a toddler.
Fit: It's adjustable and will fit multiple sizes. However, it is NOT easy to adjust as there is a relationship between the side connections passing through the inside web of the helmet and coming back together again at the right place on the sides of the face, then one has to adjust the chin strap to be tight enough but not too tight. On a patient adult with a skilled bike mechanic this can take a lot of time to get right. On a toddler it is complete bedlam. It took 5 'fittings' on my 2-year-old to get it close enough to a correct fit to take him out in his trailer for a first ride around the block. That ride began with screaming as he didn't want to put the thing on since he now had a negative association with it from all the time spent making him sit still trying to fit the thing to him. This is just plain crazy and I would buy a lesser helmet if it were only easier to strap on and go (and I'm a safety guy so this is saying a LOT).
Ride: There is a flare on the back of the helmet, much like the grown-up version. This (I think) is for aerodynamics, completely not necessary on a kid as he's 2.... Not going to do any Tour De France time trials this week if you know what I mean. The problem came when I tried to put him in his kiddie trailer behind my bike. The ridge in the back would rub against the back of the seat of his trailer which after about three bumps would shove the thing down - right over his eyes and would make him cry. I rode with him in the trailer one time around the block and had to stop three times to try to fit it better so that this wouldn't happen. Ultimately I failed, took off his helmet and took him home. I was never able to get it on him again.
This all happened last season and now that he's a year older I thought I'd give it another try... but alas I've lost the helmet (I can't remember if I threw it away or just allowed myself to forget where I put it but either way, it's gone and I won't buy another one).
It's sad because I do love these helmets in general and wanted his to look like daddy's but that isn't going to happen until he's up on his own bike. For now I'm just looking for more of a simple shell one and specifically looking for reviews about how easy it is to adjust and get going, am also looking for one that is as round as possible to avoid the shoving forward of the seat vs the back of the helmet.
So, if you have a kid whom is infinitely patient and is using this to ride his/her own bike than you can probably ignore my review.
If you are looking for a helmet for your little one to ride in a kiddie trailer do yourself and your child a favor and keep on looking.
The only bonus to this helmet is that it makes the iBert seat look even better because it is an infant/toddler seat that sits in front of the adult rider and because of this design I could see that the helmet was problematic quickly.
