    Kids Full Face Helmet Recommendations?

    I am looking for full face helmet recommendations for a 4 year old. I have done a few searches on the Families and Riding with Kids forum and the Protection forum but haven't come up with much, especially in more recent posts.

    His riding includes a wide variety, single track, BMX track, skate park, dirt jumps/pump track, etc.

    Any advice/experience or recommendations on brands and models would be appreciated.

    thanks!

    Both my 2 and 5 year old wear this full face (Cratoni C-Maniac Helmet 2013 | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com). Definitely not full on protection, but I think it is a good helmet that provides more protection but is still wearable on longer rides. We've done up to 6 hour rides, and this still lets enough air through, and doesn't put too much of a strain on their necks. When they start to ride higher consequence trails, I'll get something more agressive though.

    I scored two SixSixOne cabron fibré full-face DH helmets for $109 each from Chainlove about a year and a half ago. Cannot put a price on the kids’ protective gear– they’ll be buying mommy and I diapers some day, hoping their noggins will be successful ones someday such that they can afford only the best diapers.

    Thanks to all who have provided the recommendations and experiences. Finding some to try on has proven more difficult than I thought, but I haven't made it to the moto store yet. They will likely have the greatest selection available. I am still hoping for a CPSC certified, and somewhat light weight helmet. I may have to get a couple helmets shipped to determine the best fit.

    You can also look into the Bell Sanction. It is a bit smaller and lighter than the full moto helmets. It fits my 4 yr. old very well.

    my daughter started with a Rockgardn Blacklite full-face helmet when she was 5 (kids large 49-52cm, i believe). Good helmet. Being a girl, she wanted a different look this season; so currently using a Specialized Deviant II helmet (size adult small). We(she) also considered the Giro Remedy.
