Woom Bike Helmet Review

Woom kids' bike helmet review - featured image

Every single bike riding kid needs to have her/his head protected in case of a fall. This is where the Woom Kids Bike Helmet comes in. This helmet contains all of the safety features that your child needs, whether they are riding on some basic trails or on the sidewalks. It retails for $69.00 USD.

Safety Matters With This Kids’ Bike Helmet 

Woom believes that kids need additional protection because they fall in different ways and their brains are still developing. This  helmet was developed by Matthias Gurtner. Gurtner says “A helmet that’s truly safe for a child is not simply a smaller version of an adult helmet.” This means that the safety features on the Woom are quite different.

The Woom helmet extends protection to the back of the head, as well as the temples. Additionally, the interior of the helmet has padding that can be adjusted as necessary. Importantly, the visor bumper provides some extra padding in the forehead region, and the exterior of the helmet is made of polycarbonate plastic. The Woom logo on the helmet is reflective. And, similar to the line up of Woom bikes, the size of the Woom kids’ helmet is specifically designed for the physiology and head measurements of each age group.

Additional Features Of The Woom Kids Bike Helmet

The Woom Kids Helmet is designed to cushion the head in case of a mountain bike accident, and it’s also incredibly comfortable. There are 24 different vents and four internal air channels built into the top to provide plenty of airflow. In addition, fly nets covering each vent. These allow air to flow through, but help keep pesky insects out. The side cords won’t twist up (in fact, they are untwistable!) and the helmet fastens securely to the head with a cleverly designed magnetic pinch-free buckle that fits under the chin.

Secondly, the mediums will fit 20.5 to 22-inch heads.Finally, the largest is for kids with a head circumference of 21.7 to 23.6 inches. Each helmet comes with a size adjustment dial. However, for the best protection, you should measure your child’s head to see where it falls on the chart.
