HOW TO CHOOSE A CHILDREN'S SKI HELMET?
A children's ski helmet is compulsory in ski school and not without reason. It protects the youngest children in the event of a fall or collision. Do you want to protect your child but are not sure which product to choose? Then read on.
WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF CHILDREN'S SKI HELMETS?
A junior ski helmet is an essential piece of equipment designed to protect the heads of children, whether they are beginners or experienced skiers. There are different models, with different characteristics and incorporating various technologies, whose aim is to be both reliable and comfortable. All of them are CE-EN 1077 approved to guarantee optimum safety for your child. They are also designed to be lightweight and have built-in ventilation to prevent overheating.
When choosing your child's ski and snowboard helmet, you can choose between the traditional moulding technique, which is a little heavier, and the in-mould technology, which allows you to obtain a lighter, one-piece product. Your choice will also have to be made according to your child's level of practice (junior competition ski helmet or beginner's helmet). You can also opt for a model with a removable inner foam that can be washed. Finally, you should know that there are junior ski helmets with a visor and others that are equipped with an audio headphone for all those who like to hurtle down the slopes listening to their favourite music.
WHAT IS THE DURABILITY OF A CHILDREN'S SKI HELMET?
The lifespan of a children's ski helmet is limited due to its exposure to the weather, UV radiation, temperature variations... It is therefore necessary to be very careful and change it as soon as the first signs of wear and tear appear. A damaged helmet could break in case of impact and no longer play its protective role. This is why manufacturers recommend replacing it every 3 years or so. In any case, do not keep a junior helmet for more than 5 years and change it if it has suffered a major impact.
WHICH BRANDS TO CHOOSE?

Such diversity will also allow you to order a snowboard or freeride helmet for your child that perfectly matches your expectations and your budget.
