Top 10 Best Childrens Snowboard Helmets
for October 2022

Snowboarding is a fun, action-packed sport that the whole family can enjoy. But it's also a potentially dangerous sport, especially if your child is a beginner. That's why it's important to get a helmet that will protect your child's head, face, and ears.

Snowboarding helmets come in a variety of styles, including ski helmets, snowboard helmets, and snowboard helmets with goggles. Our lab tests snowboard helmets for durability, safety, and fit. We evaluate safety by evaluating how a helmet protects your child's head, face, and ears from impact and injury. We also evaluate durability by evaluating how a helmet holds up over time, and how well it prevents scuffs, scratches, and dents. For fit, we evaluate how easy a helmet is to put on and fit over your child's head.

Our top pick is the Burton Kids' Ripcord Snowboard Helmet. This helmet is lightweight and has a clear, protective face shield. It also provides a plush lining for extra comfort.

We've rounded up 10 of the best children's snowboard helmets of 2022, according to testing and popular reviews.
