Even if your junior ripper doesn't appreciate style now, he'll thank you when he gets older and it's time to show his new girlfriend pics of him growing up. Bern helmets are known for their low profile good looks and ample protection, and the Bandito Kids' Helmet is no exception. The Bandito starts with Bern's Thin ABS hard shell and then adds EPS, a lightweight, one time use foam that evenly distributes force and gives its life to save yours in the event of a high impact crash. Bern's Signature Shape allows the Bandito to be up to 35% lower profile than standard snow helmets, and the ergonomic fit means it fits around Junior's head instead of perching on top of it. Bern also included a knit liner to keep little heads warm in style, and the ear pads are removable for when skate season comes around. The EPS foam liner meets ASTM F 2040 and EN 1077B standards for snow and ski, and CPSC and EN 1078 standards for bike and skate.
