Fitting a Helmet
Here are some guidelines to getting the best fit for a bike helmet.
Before using the helmet, stand in front of the mirror and grab the helmet with both hands and twist it to the left and to the right. If the helmet fits right, the skin on the forehead will move as the helmet moves. If it does not, then the helmet is too loose and is unsafe for use and you need to start over.
- Eyes: The rim of the helmet should be up to 1 to 2 finger widths above the eyebrows
- Ears: The straps should form a V under just beneath the ear lobe
- Mouth: When the rider opens her mouth, the buckle should feel snug on the chin and the helmet should hug the head
Working late nights in his garage, designer/bike racer Jim Gentes created the first lightweight adult cycling helmet in 1985. Friends at NASA helped tune the final helmet shape and vent placement, and the result was the Giro Prolight, a helmet that was better looking than traditional designs while offering a superior fit and still met the industry's toughest safety standards. Plus, it was half the weight of traditional helmets. Since then, Giro has advanced its helmets, many of which have set the standards for styling, function, and innovation for progressive, performance-oriented riders on dirt, pavement, and snow. Giro helmets are worn by millions of riders, cyclists, skiers, and snowboarders around the world. Young-bloods and old-timers; hard-cores, heshers, and hipsters; rookies, experts, and a few regular Joes too--in fact, pretty musch anyone that appreciates superior fit and function, cutting edge styling, and the very best ideas you get in a helmet.

- Good decision
When I first received the helmet I thought to myself that it did not look as cute as it did on the website but the moment I put it on my 13 month boy it looked absoluletly adorable. The fit was good , the straps easy to adjust and the padding looked generous. My son who normally throws down any cap on his head never complains when I put the helmet on. I do not ever see him fidget with it except on the occassional chew on the straps. The strap have a nice curvature on the buckle so it does not poke him under the chin. Overall I am happy I purchased this product along with the ibert bike seat . It did seem pricey at first but since I get good use from the helmet, its really worth it. I will recommend this helmet to anyone. It is really difficult to find bike helmets in the regular store for the 12-36 month old toddler so it was a good decision to go with the Giro infant helmet from Amazon....more info

I really like this product for my 12 month old. Fits great and had good adjustments so the fit seems comfortable. He actually stumbled forward crawling with it on at first and it worked great.
This is the first bike helmet I owned, so I needed to read the instructions for fit which was really easy to understand. ...more info
- Perfect for a 1 year old
I visited several stores to find a helmet that would fit my one year old, with no luck. On the recommendation of a friend, I ordered this helmet and am very satisfied. While my son fights having a helmet on, it fits him perfectly, but does take a number of adjustments to get it right (which is quite a challenge when you don't have a willing participant!). Having just purchased helmets for my older children, this helmet compares in price to other full price helmets. Overall, I think this product fills the need for a quality helmet for infant or young toddler....more info

Helemt fit great. Son didn't seem to mind it on. Loved the duck theme and color...vibrant and adorable. Helmet felt sturdy, light and "safer" in comparison to other helmets. Happy customer :) ...more info
- Great Helmet
After looking everywhere for a helmet to fit my 14 month old son I googled helmets for babies and came across this one. We couldnt be happier with this product, it fits perfectly and is a good quality helmet. As always amazons service was terrific and we received the helmet within days of ordering it. The helmet took a little getting use to but the key is to put it on at the last minute.
Great product......more info
- Good helmet
I like this helmet. It seemed to be a good price compared to some of the other helmets I priced out. Sometimes it does slide down over my daughter's eyes, but I think that is because it may still be a tad big for her. Overall, I definitely would recommed this product to anyone looking for an infant helmet!...more info
- Great fit, design & protection
Bought this helmet for my daughter when we wanted to take her in the bike trailer. I purchased it from a local bike shop for around $35. The Giro helmet seemed to be lighter weight & less clunky than the Bell and other kids helmets.
She was a bit below the minimum head size but the helmet snugged right up. Only issue was riding in the trailer the helmet would push forward if she rested her head on the headrest.
Now that she's about 8 months older it fits perfectly. She loves her helmet and insists on putting it on before we go for a ride. Ample vents keep her head cool on warm days. Have to love the pink bunnies too.
- Bike helmet for babies
It was really hard to find a helmet that would fit my son's head. He is 19 months and this helmet is the only one I could find that would come close to fitting. It is still a little big and the straps are kind of confusing to me. I think it will fit him better as he grows. But it works and is confortable on his head. He hates wearing hats or anything on his head and this doesn't bother him at all. ...more info
- great adjustable helmet
Giro helmets are the best! I have 3 kids and have tried different helmets. No other brand offers the custom fit that giro does. the helmet grows with the kids' heads. there is a dial inside to expand & contract the fit. do it. buy this now. "Yellow chicks" looks less 'feminine' in person. I confidently put it on my son. the Pink Bunnies rocks for Girls!...more info
- Helmet Great for Youngins
This helmet is great. My son is 20 months, would have fit him at 16, or less? Great small size strong product. Like it....more info
- Very good buy
This is the only helmet that I could find that would fit my 12 month old. It fits her very well. All of the other helmets would fall right off. It is a struggle to get on. She doesn't sit still long enough for me to adjust it. When I hook it I almost get hre chin caught in it. The only thing is that I wish it were easier to put on and ajust. It still is a very good purchase. Once the helmet is on it works very well....more info
- Just what we needed
We bought the Giro me too helmet for our son who was 6 months old. It came with a few extra pads so we added them to the top to make the helmet sit a little higher on his head. It fits great, doesn't drop while riding, and he doesn't mind having it on. It is easily adjustable with the knob on the back. The straps were a little bit of work to get the initial fit but they will stay in place. It will grow with him and is of good quality so it was worth not getting a "dome of obedience" from wal mart. It was worth paying a little more to get a nice helmet to keep my son safe....more info
- Great fitting helmet
This helmet fit our daughter at age 2 and now at age 3. I love the adjustable easy to turn nob on the back for a custom fit. This allowed our daughter to wear it last year and now this year at 3, which will probably be her last season in it. She does run small. ...more info
- Cute and Top Quality, Too
I thought the duck was adorable and it fits well. The first time fitting it and putting it on was a bear, but now that my little guy associates it with going on a ride, we have no trouble. I would buy it again....more info
- Baby Helmet
I love this helmet. It was easy to fit and is the perfect size! I would recommend this helmet. I was not sure if it would fit or not since my sons head is small but it ended up being the perfect helmet. My son wears it everytime he goes out side and rides his bike. ...more info
- Great bike helmet for 13 month old!!
I hemmed and hawed over which helmet to get out little guy. I chose this helmet and was worried it would not get small enough to fit his head securely (he's on the small side for his age - 13 months). But, the helmet adjusted easily - it fits him perfectly. We have gone on countless bike rides ( even in the FL heat) and he doesn't get to hot or mind the helmet at all. He doesn't try to take it off ( it is very light) and his head's not sweaty when I take the helmet off. I am so glad we chose this helmet. Also, the shape of the helmet sort of acts like a visor to keep the sun off my son's face (bonus!)....more info
- perfect for babies
We bought this helmet for our six month old. It is very lightweight and fits his head just fine. It is so much fun being able to take him bike riding with us. I would recommend this helmet along with the iBert Safe-T front mounted child bicycle seat....more info

It is light wieght and has a really nice clasp
I really like this helmet...more info
- he hates hat but he loves this helmet and he looks so cute
I reviewed other reviews for many different toddler helmets. Then I chose this one. It is very easy to adjust. For my 2 year old who is quite tall and big, it fits well. He would not wear any hats and he does not like anything on his head but somehow he likes this helmet. Dial knob in the back is so easy to adjust. He looks so cute in this helmet. Thanks to all those who left helpful reviews. ...more info
- HELMET FOR ONE YEAR OLD
THIS HELMET FITS OUR SON AND HE DOESN'T HATE IT, BUT HATES WEARING HATS OF ANY KIND. WE WERE HAPPY TO FIND THIS HELMET AS WE ARE READY TO TAKE HIM OUT FOR HIS FIRST BIKE RIDE....more info
- Helmet is great
This helmet is great for younger children. It fits my one year old really well. He does put up a little fuss when we put it on him but he'll get use to wearing it eventually and he will love being able to ride along when mommy and daddy go for bike rides....more info
- Versatile adjustment for infants
I read a lot of different reviews for bike helmets including those of a well-known national consumer's group magazine. Our local sporting goods store has an array of helmets for kids age 3 and up, but just try and find one for an infant/toddler. Amazon's reviews were very helpful and I finally narrowed the choice down to the Bell Boomerang and the Giro Me2. Both were rated well, but the feature that got my vote for the Giro was the adjustable fit system. With just the twist of a knob (located at the rear of the helmet), the inside strap that encircles the infant's head can be tightened or loosened for a custom fit. This is particularly useful when dealing with an infant who is new to wearing a bike helmet, and therefore resistant to putting it on and fiddling too long with strap adjustments. Giro also includes some extra stick-on foam pads to help provide extra cushion and a good fit. I had the most difficulty finding the right position for the chinstrap. But I suspect with any brand helmet, it would take some finesse to cajole your infant while making the proper adjustment. My son, who is 10 months old, did not like it when I fastened the clip, but once we were on the bike, he loved it and totally forgot about wearing the helmet. I'm well satisfied with this purchase, plus with Amazon's free shipping, it was a good deal....more info
- Great for Infants!!!
I first bought a Schwinn helmet for my baby at Target, which I was able to adjust snugly, but the back was pointed, which made it difficult for my baby's head to lay back in her bike seat, which in turn would cause the straps to practically choke her. I decided I needed to look elsewhere.
I read some reviews of the Me2 helmet on other websites, and decided to try it out. When I got home, I adjusted it to fit her in minutes and it fit very securely and snugly (she is 9 months with a 45cm head circumference), and has a wonderful, adjustable knob to tighten it around the bottom of her skull, similar to my bike helmet. Another huge plus is the flat back so the baby can wear it in a high-back bike seat or trailer. It also has a brim in front which adds protection to her forehead.
It is a little pricey, but definitely worth it for your child's safety. For an infant around 9 months who is just starting to wear a helmet, this is the place to start. I'm not sure how long she'll be able to wear it, but I'm excited about our many bike rides together....more info
- We love it!!!
This helmet is perfect for my petite 2 year old daughter. She loves the cute duck theme and doesn't fuss too much when we put it on.We use this with the WeeRide Kangaroo child bike seat and it works well. Because she is so small, the helmet seems a little bulky but I guess that is for safety purposes. All in all, we love it and would definitely buy it again....more info
- Great so far....
Fortunately this helmet hasn't been used for what it is intended, in case of a fall, so I can't say it performed great or terrible. However, my wife and I use it for our 9 1/2 month old. It fits well enough but it is slightly big and looks even bigger when he's wearing it. At first he's a little resistant when we put it on but the instant we take off for that ride, he couldn't care less and probably forgets he's even wearing it. He does have a some problem turning his head as we're riding and usually doesn't even try. He's content just staying in one position. At the rate he's growing, there's no doubt this helmet will work out even better in the coming months! Wouldn't recommend for a child any younger but it's a great product especially for the price! ...more info
