Kids' bike helmets need to keep them safe, be comfortable and fit well. Choosing one of the best bike helmet for road cycling for yourself can be a simple affair; with so much choice you never have to worry about finding something that suits your needs.

When it comes to choosing a kids' helmet, there's a little less choice, and even less information available. However, if your child is already a confident rider or you're setting about teaching your child to ride a bike — be it an early start on a balance bike, or a later introduction on a kids' pedal bike — it's a good idea to invest in a quality children's helmet.
