Question for parents re: helmets for kids. BMX full face style vs. conventional bike helmets?
I have a 6 y/o and a 4 y/o. The 6 y/o went over the handlebars this past week, and went face-first into the sidewalk. Much drama at the time, but healing well and no broken bones, no stitches. Helmet on at the time, a decent Bell bike helmet, don't know the model. Even with the helmet, her face really hit the pavement hard.
Replacing the helmet this weekend. Actually considering full face BMX-style helmets like the Razor one. Really do not want the kids going through this type of injury if possible, so looking for helmet that will protect thier heads AND faces.
Concerns: Are the BMX style full face helmets too much for casual riding in the neighborhood? Are they going to be too heavy and too hot during the summer? Any other suggestions or recommendations for decent kids helmets?
