The elastic adjustment makes it easier for you to put the helmet on your kids head. Good to know as your little ones can be difficult to stand still. It has 11 little vents on the top area to create some air circulation. This helmet is conceived to be a helmet a kid in a trailer would wear or a kid on a balance bike. So safety is a big plus and air holes are less in number. This can make the helmet be not that refreshing due to its lack of air vents on the sides and be not suitable for hot areas.

Both series, Nina and Nino, offer a wide range of designs and graphics. Nino is considered for boys taste and Nina for girls taste. However, we find both series can be use for both genders. Just depends on your kids taste!!

One of the innovative features these helmets have is the Zipmold technology. This makes the helmet be lighter and thinner for a comfortable use and better fit. The Bern Nina and Bern Nino are one of the most compact and lighter although they cover a head´s bigger area.

The summer model comes with summer liner to keep head cooler. And for winter time, you have theNina/Nino Fleece Knit to transition it to a snow helmet.
