Alf brings us an update on Manbi's visor helmet for kids
Manbi Kids Park Visor Pro RRP £74.95
There’s a lot to be said for putting kids in helmets with visors as a visor is a lot less fiddly than goggles and won’t get lost since it’s attached to the helmet. This in-mould model from Manbi has an adjustable category 2 mirror lens which seems to be remarkably resistant to fingermarks, as well as coming with a rear goggle strap so if your child doesn’t get on with the visor you can go back to the goggles option.
I especially liked the faux velvet interior padding which is warm and luxurious, and the Fidlock buckle, which can be operated with one hand. The Park Visor comes in sizes from 48cm, and has plenty of other useful features including 14 vents, the front two of which are adjustable, a rear dial micro-adjustment system that ensures a snug and accurate fit, removable ear pads and even a Recco reflector; Manbi also include a Datatag emergency label with the helmet.
FOR Visor a great option on a kid’s helmet
