What about the helmets and child safety gear available at Decathlon? It is designed for cycling, but seem to be sturdy and tough, while reasonably light weight. Plus the colourful nature, might make it easier to use with kids.

I have been looking for a helmet for my 1 year old, but not for motorcycling reasons.

Interesting thread. I always believed Kids should also have helmets when they ride with their elders. Here is the helmet for my son who is 7 years. I have a half face junior helmet for my son for our Vespa LX 125. I will post photos later, once i photograph them.

I was at Bachoo Motors in Bombay to collect my riding pants and i happened to glimpse at these helmets for children. On further inquiring, Airoh has helmets for children.

I guess the helmets put on display should be. The Airoh os on order as i did not see any children's helmet in the store. If you send them a mail or i can PM you the store owners no and you could speak to him.

When did this happen??? Yappa!!

I'm a simple guy who's brains are getting greyed out everyday hehe

I think I'll first hit Yamaha showrooms for the helmet; if they prove ineffective, then will consider alternate options. But the fact is that, there're too many things that are taking priority & hence unable to dedicate time for this one.
