TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

ADJUSTMENT WHEEL

The adjustment wheel plays a key role in keeping your child's helmet secure. This system can be easily and precisely adjusted at any time using the easily accessible dial that you can even use with skiing gloves. It also provides comfort and maximum safety. Turn the dial to the right to tighten and to the left to loosen.

ABS STRUCTURE

Standard EN 1077:2007 is a European standard that applies to helmets used for cranial protection during downhill skiing and snowboarding. This standard tests the ability to absorb shocks and resistance to penetration. There are 2 categories:
- Class A: protects the top and back of the head, as well as the ears and the side of the head
.- Class B: Protects the top and back of the head but does not cover the ears.

WHAT SIZE?

* Measure your child's head circumference in centimetres (around the middle of the forehead and just above the ears).
* Choose the size that covers this measurement.
Example: your child has a head circumference of 49 cm, so they should try a helmet in size 48-52 cm.

FITTING

Take plenty of time to try it on properly. Your child shouldn't feel any areas of discomfort. If they do, try another model.

HELMET ADJUSTMENT

During practice, the ski helmet must be properly fitted and adjusted:
* It is essential to choose the right size.
* The head circumference must be adjusted using the thumb wheel.
* The chinstrap must be properly adjusted.
It's a bit like the seat belt in a car: if it is too loose, it will not perform its function and your child will be less protected.

SPECIAL FEATURE OF THE VISOR HELMET

Visor helmets are extremely comfortable and practical to use. However, we recommend them for young skiers who ski at moderate speed. They are less windproof than a ski mask, which perfectly moulds to the nose and face. If your child skis very fast, air can get in and it can be unpleasant.

SAFETY

Avoid putting a thick hat under your child's helmet as this will move the helmet away from their head and they won't be as well protected.
Opt instead for a very thin beanie or balaclava that does not affect their safety. A helmet has good insulating properties. There is often no point in adding anything else. Also, avoid adding a camera to the helmet as this can affect safety. The standard does not take into account any elements added to the helmet.

COMPATIBILITY WITH PRESCRIPTION GLASSES

The pleasure of skiing should be accessible to all, including young wearers of prescription glasses. Wedze has designed a helmet with a visor, more practical to use than an "over glasses (OTG)" ski mask. Due to issues with glasses size, some models remain incompatible. Head to your Decathlon store to try helmets on your child with their glasses.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Removable comfort foam machine-washable at 30°C.
