Giro based the design of its Dime kids’ helmet on its adult helmet—the Quarter. The Dime is comprised of an ABS shell with impact-absorbing EPS foam inside. The interior padding can be adjusted to perfect the Dime’s fit. The Dime also has eight air vents to cool Junior’s head. The best part of the Giro Dime, however, is that it’s completely at home on four wheels or two, so the only time your little ripper will take the Dime off will be bedtime. Oh, and dinner.

Encourages safe riding
The helmet looks great so it makes it easy to associate safety with "coolness" for young kids. I bought the XS for a 2.5 year old and it fit perfectly.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My son loves this helmet. (went with the Matte Vermillion) It fits great and was easy to adjust. Nice that it came with extra padding just in case.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought two of these - one for each nephew, ages 3 & 5. They both have massive domes, so I was a little unsure of the fit... it's perfect for the 5 year old and slightly loose on the 3 year old, although the size guide indicated it would be appropriate for his head circumference. At any rate, they're still getting used to them, but so far the noggins are in tact!
