Nowadays, there are many kinds of kids helmets on the market. When choosing a helmet, how should we choose a suitable helmet for our children? The more expensive the better? In fact, it is not. Many helmets on the market look fancy, very beautiful or very cool. In fact, their safety performance does not meet the national compulsory certification at all. No matter how expensive this kind of helmet is, you cannot buy it. In the process of riding, if you encounter danger, in addition to being unable to protect yourself, you will also cause secondary injury to yourself due to the rupture of your helmet. Before we choose a helmet, we must first understand the types of helmets and their advantages and disadvantages, so that we can better choose a suitable helmet. The following are factors that parents should consider when choosing a kids helmet.
1. Is the size appropriate?
When choosing a helmet, we must be able to determine the size of the helmet suitable for the child by measuring the child's head circumference. Or let the child try it on directly. When wearing the helmet, turn the rear adjuster to the maximum to choose the helmet size. A helmet that is too big or too small cannot be used to protect the safety of children.
2. Is the buckle too loose?
The helmet can be very dangerous if its buckle is easy to loosen. During riding, if a collision occurs, the helmet will fly out directly and can not play any protective role. If the buckle is tight, the helmet is not easy to loosen when wearing, so as to ensure safety.
3. Is the strap easy to slide?
There is a strap on both sides of the helmet. If we pull it hard, the strap will slip. At this time, the helmet is also difficult to protect the child's head.
At the same time, it is recommended that parents take time to check their kids helmets every week to determine whether the adjustment belt is out of place or deformed. Before riding, check again whether the child has fastened the adjustment belt. Don't trigger accidents because of temporary carelessness.
