The Bandita helmet is designed for pre-teen boys with noggins too big for a kids helmet, yet not quite big enough for and adult model. Taking cues from the ladies Lenox, the Bandita uses Bern’s original visor shape and styling. Utilizing the EPS Thinshell technology, the Bandita offers a lightweight yet burly construction that is certified to protect you on a bike or on the slopes. The winter model comes with a winter liner keeping their head and ears warm in the colder months, but can easily be transitioned to a bike helmet for summer activities.

*What is EPS?
EPS is lightweight, effective across a wide range of temperatures and conditions and highly effective at reducing the amount of energy transferred to your head during an impact. EPS accomplishes that energy reduction by collapsing during the impact, converting some of the energy into heat and slowing the transmission of energy. A key advantage of EPS is the reliability of the moulded part to deal with impact energy over a wide range of conditions
*What is ABS?
Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a thermoplastic that is widely used in helmets. From a performance standpoint, ABS has high impact resistance, functions well in cold weather and is, simply put, tough and durable.
