Strength:

Nice graphics (I like the yellow chicks)

Weakness:

Cheap strap system that is attached to the shell with double sided adhesive straps. This will come off and will never attach back properly.

Useless, a waste of money. Get a helmet where the nape strap is attached directly to the shell and not just glued with a sticker.

Strength:

easy to adjust fit/retention system

Weakness:

fot/retention system only held in by adhesive velcro

We got this helmet (2007)because of the dial adjust for fit. It's much easier to get set up after our son is in his trailer. BUT after a couple of months the entire fit/retention systems velcro fasteners came unglued from the inside of the helmet and then glued itself to our son! the helmet then had no fit at all and just flopped around wildly. Giro said they had never heard of this happening,but as I checked at stores, many of these helmets had already come unglued in the store. Very bad design. could be quite dangerous if it happened while riding

Strength:

This is a great helmet (2002)! Has held up for almost 3 years of toddler punishment -- from bike carrier, to trailer bike, to a 12" mountain bike, to a scooter. Fit is great, and adjusts easily for another child to "borrow". Rough and tumble 3 year old has not had any "noggin" damage, with this on.

Weakness:

A bit hot for our weather here. Usually find a wet sweaty head under the helmet if worn for any lenght of time. The chin straps loosen after a few wearings and need readjustment. Can pinch chin. She does not really like the triangle buckle that fits under her ears on the chin strap -- often complains it bothers her head/ears.

May try to find a toddler helmet (my girls wear these until they are 5) that gives better overall "back of the neck" coverage, and has more air vents. But overall, a great durable helmet.

Older GIRO for our older child. Have a 2nd newer 2004 which we will use now that the 2002 is showing a crack or two (cosmetic) on the surface.
