    Where to find a kid full face helmet?
    My 6yo has been watching Seasons and Elemental a bit too much, and now wants to get a full face helmet. I've google around and can't find much. Where can I find a FF helmet for a kid that's not too expensive?

    661 used to make some full face helmets for groms.

    You can sometimes still find them in their closeouts.

    I've seen kids FF at Toys R Us and Target.

    If you're going to put them in a helmet though, it might as well be decent. the hurricane is only $50

    How about a MX shop? There is a lot of crossover and a little extra protection can't hurt.

    Thanks for the tips. The Hurricane looks like a decent one.

    I'm shopping for the same for my 7yo daughter (she's also seen Seasons one too more time) but I guess the questions would be where can I get a decent kids full face helmet.

    I recently picked up a full face helmet for my girlfriend's 6yo son from walmart. It is the same helmet in the first two links but it has hotwheels graphics. The helmet is well made and it fits his head well. He loves it!

    What about fly chaos? I'm looking for a kids helmet, but for me. Even the XS are too big. I want a decent one.

    Where are the size listings for the 661? Their XS was way too big on me but I dont know if I might be a Med. on kids in that brand.

    Watch the weight. You don't want to do more damage to their neck than you save in other potential injuries.

    The flys are heavy compared to the hurricane? Says 2.61 lbs. for fly. I think the Hurricane, DOT approved might be heavy, correct?

    661 comp XS. Go to their website for measurements. $50.

    My kid loves FF helmets... but he needs a reason to rock one. It's too hot here spring, summer, fall.

    We are flirting with BMX, but it's up to him. He's 5, and I'm looking for a sign from him. He wants to race Prairie City in June, so we'll see.

    My head measures at 20 7/8". I just returned an XS 661 helmet since it would wobble back and forth by at least an inch. An XS is not a youth sized helmet.

    Thanks! I was close to ordering one for my son. You just saved me a headache. :drumroll:

    Lots of kids ride moto with the youth dot helmets all the time. I don't think neck injuries from weight are really an issue with kid specific helmets after like 5 years old.
