Kaye demonstrates the features of a small helmet that will fit a head about 45 – 54cm in circumference. She talks about safety standards and the new trend towards skate bike helmets as well.

Kaye looks at two different helmets, one aimed at older kids (or ‘youth’) and the other at younger riders. She talks about features as well as what helmet is best for what style of rider/riding.
