Everything you need to know about Micro Helmets POSTED ON 25/06/2018
Sun’s out, scooters out, it’s time for an adventure. Before you get going it is essential that (if you don’t already own one) then you should consider purchasing a helmet for your child.
In fact if you fit one of the next three profiles then without a doubt this blog post will make essential reading:
- You’re pretty set on buying your child a scooter and feeling reassured and confident that you’ve made the right choice on which model to go for.
- Scooter’s at the ready but your child’s helmet is non existent/ looking a bit worse for wear/ lost. They could do with a safety upgrade.
- Micro scooter helmets have caught your eye, you didn’t realise that they sold safety accessories too!
Summer scooting adventures will soon begin. However before they do it is important to ensure that your child is as safe as they can be every time they head off exploring on their Micro Scooter. The easiest way to do this is by ensuring that they wear a helmet.
Keep them safe
From Retro Rocket to Glitter pink there are 21 different designs and colours in the current range, so something to suit every intrepid explorer.

- Rear adjustment wheel to ensure a snug fit

- Adjustable safety straps
- Solid quick release clip fastening
- 2 sizes to choose from (Sizes: Small: 48-52cm. Medium: 53-58cm)
Getting the right size helmet
It is very temping at this point to grab the helmet that you assume will fit or one that they’ll grow into to save shelling out twice. However it is essential that you measure your children’s head BEFORE you place an order. Head size has absolutely no correlation to the age of the child. Plus a badly fitting or an incorrect helmet size will mean that it is incredibly uncomfortable for your child to wear. Not only will the helmet irritate them, they will be very reluctant to wear it in future and you’ll end up with a redundant helmet in the garage.
Children’s head sizes vary by age. We’ve seen 2 year old children with big heads and 10 year olds with small heads. This video will help you to determine which one is best.
