While balance bikes are ultimately safer than the alternative (handicapping your child with training wheels or a tricycle, or throwing them into the world of pedal biking without any balance preparation), wearing a helmet at all times is recommended. If you’re a savvy parent who’s already caught onto the balance bike movement, however, you know that not just any run-of-the-mill helmet will do.
Thankfully, Strider’s got you.
Your child will love the cool, motocross styling of the STRIDER ST-R Full Face Kids Helmet - and you’ll love the complete protection it offers.
Despite its impressive durability, this helmet is surprisingly lightweight and comfortable. It weighs just under 1 lb. Beyond that, it’s also adjustable. You can easily remove the padded chin bar if your child needs a little less coverage, and add it back on when they want to ride hard.
Choose either Small (fits heads between 19-21 inches) or Medium (fits heads between 21-23 inches). Inside the helmet you’ll find an easy-adjust dial that scales with your child’s growth spurts. As far as color choices, this helmet comes in red, white or blue.
The STRIDER ST-R Full Face Kids Helmet is CPSC Safety Rated, so you can rest easy as your child uses their balance bike to explore both the world and their own capabilities.
