Cycling Weekly Verdict

With multiple colour ways and a low-profile design, the Bern Nino 2.0 youth bike helmet was a hit in our house. The hands-free EZ-Fit system does make it so much easier to leave the house and adjust on the move, although possibly does create a need to adjust more often. As a ride mentor I was really confident that it offered enough protection, and for the rider it was a really comfortable fit and appealing design making it easy to wear. Personally I would prefer the MIPS version, but for the price this is a great, safe helmet that will bring a lot of joy to any bike ride.

Seeing my daughter finding a love for bike riding is a parenting highlight. I've been keen not to push her into it and to let her naturally find her own path, but have been leading by example - riding bikes is just what we do as a family.

Which is why the Bern Nino 2.0 youth bike helmet was a winner in our house.
