    Full Face helmets for kids?

    Got a pair of kiddos that are itching to hit the BMX track.

    For X-Mas they got the bikes,entry level Redlines, and I've been looking on and off to try and find a decent FF helmet for track days. (I figure it's cheaper than the dentist).

    Unfortunatly for me, the local shops don't stock a large amount of 'real' bmx stuff. It's all lumped together - normal 20", street & stunt, and then the BMX racers.

    I'm hoping to get 'em started around springtime, but before I do anything want to figure out the helmets.

    The only things I've seen have been the Giro/Bells that are abundant online, but don't know if they're kid worthy.

    Any help appreciated,

    Try www.prymegear.com They have a nice chart for sizing your childs head to the helmet.
    I bought the Evil Pro for my son.

    Ended up going with some Bell Balistic's.

    Ended up going to local shops and getting them to try them on.

    Man, what a variance in attitude at the shops too. Some pulled 'em out, read instructions, and helped out, while another didn't have any and accused me of trying to get a fit - "just so I could buy it on the internet!"

    Thanks for the suggestions and help - unfortunatly the only ones sold locally were the Bells and Giro's - I tried at least 8 different shops.
