Scamp MIPS Helmet
Half the fun of getting a new helmet as a kid is picking one out that looks really, really cool. Giro makes sure little ones will be able to find a helmet they get excited about wearing with the Scamp MIPS Helmet, including graphics worthy of your young adventurer with features that will keep them safe as they discover the world on two wheels.
To offer protection against impact, Giro uses the same In-Mold polycarbonate shell and EPS foam liner in the Scamp as in its adult helmets, and then adds new MIPS technology. MIPS, or Multi-Directional Impact Protection System, refers to a Swedish technology added to the helmet in the form of a thin inner layer that rotates upon impact to absorb the brain-damaging rotational energy created in certain crashes.
Giro adapts its Roc Loc fit adjustment system to the Scamp MIPS to make fit adjustments quick and easy. We can all remember tearfully getting our chins pinched at least once while rushing to buckle our helmet so we could go ride our bikes; thankfully, Giro developed a pinch-guard buckle to prevent it from happening to today's youth. A built-in visor and ponytail compatibility provide finishing touches to the Scamp's design, promising comfort for all little riders.

Protect the future
Got this helmet for my daughters 2nd birthday and she loves it. More piece of mind as a parent knowing your child's cranium is protected. Ventilation is spot on and the padding inside is nice and cushy.
Remember parents- practice what you preach. If you make them wear a helmet you wear one as well and everyone will be protected.
Haven't received the helmet yet, so will give a review of it when we actually get it. This review is about the "2 day shipping". Ordered Wednesday, expected it on Friday via UPS 2nd day air. Not receiving until Monday. A bit annoyed as we were expecting it for the weekend.
would buy it again!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
the size xs fits my buddies 7 month old with the adjustability function easily. i anticipate this fitting her until she is at least a year and a half. the older sister (2.5 yrs) has a size small. excellent quality. fun colors, and comfy fit. i would certainly get it again!
Got this for my Niece so she could ride on the back of my brother bike. She LOVES wearing it. Will even wear it in the house, totally crazy when a kid is willing to keep something on their head. Great safety ratings and super cute on. Totally recommend.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is for a 2 year old. He seams to like it and is required to wear it.
