How to Properly Wear Bicycle Helmets for Children?

Nowadays, more and more people choose city bicycles as a tool for going out or exercising, but they ignore the importance of wearing protective equipment correctly during riding.

Most people think that wearing a helmet is a simple matter, thinking that just wearing a helmet is safer than riding without a helmet. In fact, whether it is an adult or a child, if the helmet is worn incorrectly, the protective effect of the helmet will be significantly reduced.

First of all, parents should use a soft tape measure to measure the largest part of the child's head circumference and choose a helmet suitable for the child. And follow the tips below to ensure that your child wears a helmet correctly.

1. Put on the helmet firmly and make sure it does not shake. When buying, ask the salesperson how to adjust the strap. Learn the correct way of wearing them through professional demonstrations by sales assistants, and observe the appearance of children after wearing them.

2. When wearing the helmet, the child's forehead should not be exposed. The helmet should be worn horizontally and cannot be tilted forward or backward. Most people will show their forehead when wearing a helmet, and this is a mistake most people make. If you accidentally hit the handlebars, this approach will not protect your head. In fact, the brim of the helmet should be about 1 cm higher than the eyebrows. Wearing it in a low position can reduce the impact caused by a shock collision without obstructing the line of sight.

3. Every time you wear it, check whether the adjusting belt is comfortable and adjust the tightness. When helping children to fasten the buttons, observe whether their heads can turn freely and whether they can breathe smoothly. It is enough to leave a finger-sized gap between the neck and the adjustment strap. If it is too loose, it may shift when impacted and cannot protect the head, which increases safety risks.

At the same time, it is recommended that parents take time to check their children’s helmets every week to determine whether the adjustment belt is running or deformed. Before riding, check again whether the child has fastened the adjustment belt.
