Made for Developed for the young occasional skier. Simple and robust, it is perfect for children to enjoy their first skiing experiences safely. This children's helmet is equipped with a headband adjustment wheel and an outer shell made of ABS for good resistance.
Wedze helmets and masks are designed to be used together.
The adjustment wheel plays a key role in keeping your child's helmet secure. This system enables easy and precise adjustment at any time using the easily-accessible dial that you can even use with skiing gloves. It also provides comfort and maximum safety.
Turn the dial to the right to tighten and to the left to loosen.
This type of structure incorporates an outer shell, made of ABS, injection moulded to withstand powerful impacts. It combines durability with a significant capacity to withstand bumps and knocks. The internal EPOS skullcap absorbs impact and collision at the time of impact. We recommend changing your child's ski helmet at least every 5 years unless it has sustained a significant impact in the meantime.
Standard EN 1077
Standard EN 1077 is a European standard that applies to helmets used for cranial protection during downhill skiing and snowboarding. This Standard features tests to check the helmet’s shock-absorbing capacity and resistance to penetration by a sharp object. There are two different categories:
- Class A: Protects the top and back of the head as well as the ears and the side of the head
.- Class B: Protects the top and back of the head, but does not cover the ears.
* Measure your child's head circumference in centimetres (around the middle of the forehead and just above the ears).
* Then choose the size that covers this measurement.
Example: your child has a head circumference of 49cm, so they should try a helmet in size 48-52cm.
Take plenty of time to try it on properly. Your child shouldn't feel any areas of discomfort. If they do, try another model. Always get them to try the helmet with goggles, because not all helmets go with all goggles. A helmet is compatible with ski goggles when there is no air space between the top of the goggles and the helmet.
During use, the ski helmet must be properly fitted and adjusted:
* It is essential to choose the right size.
* The head circumference must be adjusted with the thumb wheel.
* The chinstrap must be properly adjusted.
It's a bit like the seat belt in a car: if it is too loose, it will not perform its function and your child won't be as well protected.
Avoid putting a thick hat under your child's helmet as this will move the helmet away from their head and they won't be as well protected.
Opt instead for a very thin beanie or balaclava that does not affect their safety. A helmet has good insulating properties. There is often no point in adding anything else. Also, avoid adding a camera to the helmet as this can affect safety. The standard does not take into account any elements added to the helmet.
Do not store in a damp place, near a source of heat or sunlight. Dry thoroughly before storing, preferably in a fabric helmet bag.
All Wed'ze products are tested under the actual conditions of use for which they were designed: snow, cold and all other conditions you may encounter when skiing. The design teams, product managers, engineers and designers make sure that the programme for which the product has been designed and developed is perfectly suited for its use in the field.
