It's essential to wear a helmet while scooting, but how do you know if your helmet is a good fit? The first step is ordering a Micro Helmet in the correct size.

The only safe way to determine helmet size is via head circumference. Micro Helmet size recommendations come in both inches and centimeters for your convenience!

Sizing is:

Extra Small: 46 - 50 cm (about 18.1 to 19.6 inches)

Small: 48 - 53 cm (about 18.9 to 20.8 inches)

Medium: 52 - 56 cm (about 20.4 to 22 inches)

Heads grow at a slow rate, so be sure not to size up!

In the video below, you'll find some of our top tips for your properly-sized helmet. How do you know if it's the right fit? Watch the video!

 

How to wear the Micro helmet

Step 1: Put it on!

Step 2: Turn the spin dial on the back until the helmet feels secure.

Step 3: Wiggle test! The helmet should not slip or slide when you wiggle your head, even with the buckle open!

Step 4: The distance between the helmet's edge and your child's eyebrow should be no larger or smaller than 2 fingers wide.

Step 5: The side buckles should rest just below the ears.

Step 6: Fasten the magnetic no-pinch buckle just below the chin. To ensure that it's the correct fit, there should be room for just one finger width between the strap and chin.
