    Kids Helmet Recommendations

    I just bought an iBert for my toddler (related thread - Kid Bike Trailer Worth It?- Mtbr.com) and she also has a Kazam balance bike that she'll probably start using in a year or so.

    So I'm now looking for a helmet. Her head circumference is 50.5 cm. I'd like to spend ~$20 but could spend more if it makes a difference with comfort, safety, adjustability (how fast do kids heads grow?), style, etc.

    Any recommendations?

    The helmet just arrived and my daughter loves the helmet. It's a perfect fit, is well made and has some nice features.

    Awesome choice. My daughter wore hers until she was 6. We then passed it on to the neighbor. I experimented with some cheaper helmets before. What a huge difference.

    Glad to hear she likes it. The elastic head lock keeps the fit nice and secure without them (you) having to adjust a ratchet system. I don't know if we've ever used the lights, but my son thinks his helmet is sooo cool since it has lights. The integrated visor also offers a bit better face protection than a regular visor if they go down hard.
