Some kids discover slopes and speed as they learn how to ride a bicycle. These helmets use to have a skater-style shape. Also, they use to be more compacts and they cover a bigger area of the head because kids need more protection for the different kinds of injuries they could have. More speed, more risk, so they need more protection.

This selection of helmets can make it great for those little ones learning how to take the slopes. However, if your kids are improving, they should use ASTM certified ones (skateboard certified). The helmets are organised by size:

1.Giro Scamp MIPS Helmet

The Bern Nina Nino (Niña/Niño) helmets are polyvalent skater-style helmets, as they can be used in summer and winter sports. Also, they are suitable for bikers and skaters use, which make these helmets be very complete for smaller kids.

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.

8.Bell Segment Jr. Helmet

Bell Segment Jr reviewDimensions from 48-53 m (Size XS, 18.9″-208″) and from 51-55 cm (Size S, 20″-21.6″)

Bell Segment Jr. is a skate-style classic helmet with head-hugging comfort and advanced fit technologies. It is perfect for sport activities, as it provides great protection on everything they dare to try. Also, it is very comfortable to wear due to its Bell FormFit, which makes the helmet fit more like a comfortable cap than a hard-shell helmet.

This helmet is safe to use in skate parks, BMX trails and everyday activities for active kids. As it has not that many air ventilations and it is way heavier than other models ( skate style helmets tend to be heavier as more protection is needed) we do not recommend it for cruising or commuting around town.

And a little curiosity, there used to be some special editions like the Star Wars Edition.

International certifications: ASTM F1492-08 (Skate), ASTM F2032 (BMX), CE EN1078, CPSC. Dual certified in Us and Europe.
