The Melon® Toddler Helmet represents the highest quality of protection against outside impacts against the head, for kids from 12 months+ whilst riding a balance bike, bicycle, skates, inline blades or skate boards (EU only). IMPORTANT: A helmet can only function as it was designed to when it is worn correctly, has been adjusted to the users head and is carefully fastened. HOWEVER it is not possible to guarantee that a helmet can protect the wearer against all possible impacts. Melon® Toddler Helmets are tested and certified to surpass the current official safety standards. CAUTION! This helmet should not be used by children while climbing or doing other activities where there is a risk of hanging or strangulation if the child gets trapped whilst wearing the helmet. We encourage you to make certain that your child removes the helmet before playing on or in playgrounds or similar areas. Please make sure to read this user manual in its entirety before use. These instructions build an integral part of the product. This is why we encourage you to keep these instructions as well as the original packaging in safe keeping, should questions arise at a later stage.
Item: Melon® Toddler Helmet
Size: XXS (44-50cm)
The Melon® Toddler helmet can only protect optimally if it fits your child properly (fig. 2) and when the chin strap is closed while the helmet is worn. Please test several padding sizes for comparison and check whether the head circumference of the child matches the size of the helmet. The helmet should only be selected if it is tight and comfortable at the same time. The helmet must not slip during movements.
Take the helmet in the correct helmet size, loosen all the straps to the maximum width and place the helmet on your toddler’s head. If the helmet is too loose, replace the breathable foam pads in the helmet with the next stronger paddings (Fig. 5). Once you have found the correct adjustment of the pads, you can adjust the chin strap. Finally, gently tighten the X-Fix straps evenly on the left and right side to prevent the helmet from slipping forward.
The helmet should surround the head easily, and should be worn level. The front helmet edge should sit one to two fingers widths above the bridge of the nose (Fig. 2). It is easy to check if the helmet fits correctly. All you have to do is leave the chinstrap unclosed and gently move your kid's head. If the helmet moves, we recommend adjusting the divider lock system.
Open all straps (including those on the Melon® Divider Locks) so that the X-Fix system does not affect the adjustment process. Open the Melon® Divider Locks (Fig. 3c) and put your helmet on your kid’s head.
First adjust the front strap, which should be located underneath the chin, to the correct length. Leave approximately a finger-wide space between the belt and the chin of your child. To shorten the strap, pull it through the magnetic buckle’s strap loop. To lengthen it, pull the buckle further down.
Then close the Fidlock® magnetic buckle. After you’ve adjusted the front strap, the adjustment of the side straps follows. Position the Melon® Divider Locks (Fig. 3b) in a way that neither the strap nor the Divider Locks touch the ears. To do this, simply slide the Divider Lock up or down into the correct position. When you find the right position, close the divider lock. When adjusting the length of the side straps they must be pulled to the correct length at the same time if possible (Fig. 2). To do this, pull the straps on the side to the back until they are tight. Be aware that after the adjustment of the side straps the front strap might get too short. If necessary adjust the length of the front strap again.
Another advantage of the Melon® X-Fix: After the first adjustment, only the front strap length has to be adjusted each time (of course, the correct setting of all other straps must be checked). After you have made all the settings on the helmet and closed the magnetic buckle, the helmet must feel comfortable and should not slide backwards or forwards.
Your Melon® Toddler helmet is equipped with the Melon® X-Fix. This means: X-Fix: Anti-roll-off-protection by new X-Fix strap system for more safety and comfort. Compared to conventional helmet strap systems with adjusting wheel, X-Fix prevents the helmet from rolling off and distributes forces optimally to protect the rear head.
Due to the crosswise guidance of the straps at the neck they tighten automatically with increasing forces. In addition, lockable X-Fix gliders on the sides secure a correct helmet adjustment to prevent often observed rear-bevel helmet misadjustments. X-Fix thus also secures the helmet shell in the correct horizontal position to protect the front part.
The Melon® tail light is integrated into the X-Fix-Wing, which crosses the straps at the back of the head. The integrated tail light comes with with three different modes. The setting “flashing” is preferable to continuous lighting for energy-saving reasons. If the battery needs to be replaced, gently push the Melon® tail light out of the X-Fix Wing and loosen the screws on the back of the light (Fig. 3b). Replace the battery with a new one and re-tighten the Melon® rear light screws properly so that no moisture can get inside.
Your Melon® helmet has small connector slots at the front helmet edge for Melon® accessories such as the Melon® Vista Visor UV400.
