Bicycle helmets for children's use
A bicycle helmet is any headgear that is marketed as, or implied through marketing or promotion to be, a device that is intended to provide protection from head injuries while riding a bicycle. When a bicycle helmet is designed or intended primarily for children twelve years of age or younger, it is considered a children’s product under the Consumer Product Safety Act. This policy does not cover helmets specifically marketed for exclusive use in a designated activity (for example, skateboarding, rollerblading, baseball, or roller hockey) other than riding a bicycle. If a helmet is intended for multiple uses, including riding a bicycle, it is covered by this policy.

When ski and snowboarding helmets are designed or intended primarily for children twelve years of age or younger, they are considered a children’s product under the Consumer Product Safety Act.
