Kids BMX helmets - are they any different from a regular bike helmet?

A BMX helmet for kids / youth BMXers is different from a "traditional" bike helmet. Specifically, the helmet design is less focused on aerodynamics and more focused on amount of coverage. When you look at BMX helmets, you'll see that most have a bucket-shape design that is similar to a traditional skateboard helmet. BMX helmets don't need the aerodynamic design of a bicycle helmet because BMX riders aren't riding at high speed, so efficient aerodynamics isn't an important design element. Instead, BMX helmets have the back and sides of the helmet extended further down your head to offer more impact protection in these important areas. If your son or daughter is going to be doing BMX tricks on the street or park or riding vert, he or she will need the added coverage because of the likelihood of falling backwards or sideways, not just over the handlebars. So, a regular kids BMX helmet offers good impact protection for street or freestyle BMX riding.

Do I need a Fullface BMX helmet for my kid?

It depends on what your son or daughter is doing.... BMX riding has several different disciplines, including street, terrain park, vert, and racing. The two disciplines that really demand a fullface BMX helmet are vert and racing. When BMX racing became an Olympic sport in 2008, it got a lot of kids (and adults) interested in BMX racing. Before your kid hops onto his bike and signs up for his first moto, remember that BMX racing absolutely requires a BMX helmet. And, USA BMX strongly recommends a fullface BMX helmet for racers. So do we.
