Motocross helmets for children have changed a lot in recent years. New technologies ensure better damping of impacts, which means children can ride with better protection. Furthermore, new design techniques and simulations on the computer also contribute to better protection and performance. The most important technical features of kids motocross helmets are shown below.
A good ventilation system will contribute to a comfortable motocross helmet for children. Moreover, this ensures better performance during races. The inner lining also contributes to better comfort. Moisture-wicking fabric helps to drain sweat and soft padding ensures good fit without pressure points.
The damping system protects the rider by absorbing impacts. As mentioned above, there have been many innovations in recent years. The best example is the innovative 6D ODS system. This damping system is designed to damping impacts in 6 directions. This means that both rotations and compressions are absorbed. The 6D kids motocross helmets are among the safest on the market.
The motocross helmets for children can be produced from various different materials. The outer shell has a large influence on the weight. Carbon is therefore the most used material in advanced motocross helmets. This material is strong and has a very low weight. Fiberglass is another composite that is widely used. The weighs a bit more, but also offers good protection. Finally, there are kids motocross helmets made of polycarbonate. Polycarbonate helmets are often the cheapest but have less durability than a composite outer shell.
It is important for children to wear the right size helmet to ensure the protective design works as intended. You can easily determine the required helmet size by measuring the circumference of your head with a measuring tape. Use a soft measuring tape, then measure the largest diameter around your head. Start about 2cm above your eyebrows. Keep the tape above your ears and around the back of your head at the largest point. V1mx has a size chart for each helmet, so you can easily select the right size helmet. Once you receive the kids motocross helmet you should check if the helmet fits properly. Below you will find a step-by-step guide to determine if the helmet fits.
