Do you know what type of bike helmet your child should be wearing?
Helmets are not optional. Before even sitting on a bike every child should be wearing a properly fitted, CPSC/ASTM certified helmet. Luckily, all helmets sold in the United States must be CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) certified and most are ASTM (International Safety Standards), so just about any helmet can protect your child during a fall. Without a proper fit however, a certified helmet may fail to protect your child from a head injury. As a result, purchasing the right size helmet and properly adjusting it to fit your child’s head is essential.
