Nice little helmet for baby
on June 4, 2014
We got this for our baby when he turned 1 year old to start taking him on the bike. I think all kids react differently to helmets, but this one seems pretty comfortable for our kiddo, and he doesn't seem to mind.
The snap closure of chin strap could be better, I typically hold a finger between the buckle and his chin (which he resists cause it tickles him) when fastening it so I don't pinch him. Some more expensive helmets have a magnetic closure or a bigger opening to the buckle to avoid pinching, but so far we haven't had a problem. The adjustment in the back is also ok, not the greatest but not the worst, fairly easy to tighten down.
One key a helmet for babies/small kids is that it doesn't stick out too far in the back... a little bit but all helmets will. This one is pretty decent in that regard. The issue is that if it is too bulky in the back, it can push their head forward when they sit back against the seat. One solution is to put a folded blanket or towel behind their back (extending up their whole back from the seat bottom up to shoulders), pushing their bottom forward just a bit on the seat so that there's room for the helmet between head and seat back (just make sure the harness is still snug and secure). We use both a Topeak bike seat and a Chariot trailer and he has enjoyed riding in both, wearing this helmet.
