Kid’s Bike Helmets

Riding a bike is one of the best parts about being a kid, and we carry a full selection of kid’s bike helmets to keep them protected on all their two-wheeled adventures. These days top helmet brands provide kid’s helmets that are right on par with their adult performance helmets. So it’s easier than ever to find something that offers the right amount of protection and comfort, all in a style that’s fresh and fun so they’ll always want to wear it.

The most important function of any kid’s helmet is protection. Learning to ride a bike comes with a few bumps and bruises, and a quality helmet protects what matters most. All of our kid’s helmets meet U.S. safety standards, which is a good place to start. Beyond protection, the second major factor to consider is fit. To function properly, a helmet must have a snug, secure fit. Check out helmets with adjustable retention systems, which allow kids to dial in the fit quickly and easily. Many children’s helmets come in one size, which is adjustable via the fit system, but some also come in multiple sizes.

Next, think about what kind of riding the child does most. Laps around the driveway? Riding to school? Dirt jumps? Family mountain bike adventures? We carry helmets with special features for every type of riding. Some have adjustable, built-in visors, which are great for any kind of off-road riding. Others are designed in the traditional “skate style” that makes a good choice for multi-use adventures. There are all different types of ventilation systems to help them keep cool in warm-weather conditions. And some children’s helmets come in boy's and girls’ specific models.

We have a wide selection of kid’s helmets from brands like Bell, Giro, POC, Lazer and others. Take a look through the options, and feel free to call one of our Gear Advisors at 888-880-3811 if you have any questions.
