I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
My kids are really great at wearing their helmets when we ride bikes or scooters because I have drilled it into them how important they are. Just because they are great at it doesn't mean they like it. Two St. Louis dads put their heads together to produce brainskinz interchangeable-shell helmets that kids actually want to wear! After five years in the making, combining safety and style, brainskinz helmets have been thoughtfully designed with kids in mind.
Industrial design engineers at Fred Sparks, along with Polansky himself, designed both the Base helmet which brainskinz calls ?function,? as well as the decorative Shells which brainskinz calls ?form.?
The base helmet is comfortably outfitted with soft, satiny padding, an adjustable clasp-style chinstrap, and a dial-fit that perfectly conforms to a child's head. You just turn the dial and it easily tightens or loosens on your child's head.
The base helmet meets safety testing requirements for bicycling and skateboarding, and can be worn with or without a shell.
Choosing and changing the shell is where the fun comes in. Kids love being able to express themselves, changing out the shell based on whatever mood or style they?re feeling that day.
Design elements have come from Boxing Clever among others, with new shell designs coming out all the time. My daughters think this helmet and the ability to change it out is "so cool." That is the whole point of these awesome new helmets...getting kids to actually want to wear their helmets.
