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 goggles are designed to form an integrated whole.
The tightening wheel plays a key role in ensuring that your child's helmet does not come off. 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 inner EPS liner absorbs shocks in the event of a collision. 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 tests the ability to absorb shocks and resistance to penetration. There are 2 classes:
- 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 practice, the ski helmet must be properly fitted and adjusted:
* It must be chosen at 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 another layer. Also, avoid adding a camera to the helmet as this can affect safety. The standard does not take into account elements that are added to the helmet.
The helmets have a PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) classification. It cannot be exchanged. A ski helmet complies with a standard. We cannot guarantee that the purchased helmet has not undergone impact and therefore still complies with the standard.
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 Wedze products are tested under the real-life conditions of use for which they were designed: in the snow, the cold and all the conditions that might be encountered when skiing. The design teams, product managers, engineers and pattern makers check that the programme for which the product was designed and developed perfectly matches its use in the field.
