My daughter is 6 years old. What size...

Posted on

My daughter is 6 years old. What size helmet should I buy?.

Responded on

Measure her head and go this sizing; Small: 49 - 51cm, Medium: 51 - 53cm, and Large: 53 - 55cm. The great thing about the Avid is that it has a size adjustment in the back. So my daughter who is 2 1/2 wears a small, because I can adjust it small enough for her. Use the sizing as a solid reference.

Used by an adult I'm sure it saved her life

My girlfriend has a small head, but the "Large" child's helmet fitted well.
I was a little worried about it being a "kids" helmet, and so whether the protection would be thinner, weaker etc. but fit seemed most important: 2 weeks ago she tested it to destruction.

She slid during a nasty traverse, dropped off a 5-10m (15-30 foot) cliff/rock band, tumbling as she went, luckily I didn't see it, but friends report she bounced stright off the top of her head...a 200m slide down a glacier later she managed to stop herself...since she was thankfully still conscious.
The helicopter guys pointed to the large crack in her helmet and raised an eyebrow: "bon casque".
Indeed - we're now in the market for a new helmet, and I am only looking at the Red ones.

what age group is this helmet for?

Everything it says it is

It's definitely light and very well-made. My daughter will be using it for cycling, skateboarding and, eventually, snowboarding. It's nice that she can have one really good helmet to use for all those things for 2-3 years until she outgrows it. Then we'll just need to buy one more of the next size up and not 3. Only caveat is to round up with the sizing. The youth small would have fit my daughter when she was 2-4. I measured her head and thought she was in the small range but she's not. So we returned the small for a medium.
