ABUS Children’s Helmets
From a child seat, through stabilisers, to a child’s first proper bike – children’s safety is the utmost importance and ABUS are renowned for its collection of children’s helmets, suitable for every age. ABUS’ children’s helmets are built to the same exacting quality as their adult road and MTB helmets with shared features more commonly found on more premium offerings. Helmets such as the Anuky and Youn-I feature a rear-facing LED light for increased visibility in low light. The range of helmets also feature easy to use adjustment systems ensuring a perfect fit every time, and large reflective patches help to increase visibility even further.
The helmets are available in a wide range of styles to suit every kind of rider and adventure. For kids looking to hit the bmx parks or streets, the ABUS Scraper 3.0 features a hard shell construction, bold styling and excellent ventilation, as well as being compatible for riders with longer hair and ponytails. For younger children riding shotgun or trying out their first bike, the ABUS Anuky has bright colourful designs to capture children’s imagination, and easy to use size adjustment that parents can use one-handed if needed and an LED rear light.
The Youn-I 2.0 model has enabled ABUS to bridge the gap between helmets for adults and helmets for young people. Adults are role models for children and should therefore also wear a bike helmet. However, some riders with smaller heads often cannot find a helmet that fits them properly. Wearing a helmet has been shown to revent many of the serious injuries caused by cycling accidents and when a child looks at their parent for inspiration, the Youn-I perfectly serves that purpose. With a simple but modern look, the Youn-I 2.0 bike helmet meets the needs of both young cyclists as well riders with smaller heads. The Youn-I 2.0 boasts a simple, urban and fashionable look that appeals to both generations and sensible safety features like increased protection around the temple and neck, a high mounted LED rear light and full-ring fit adjustment for a perfect fit every time.
