What is the difference between Thudguard and a cycle helmet?

The only similarity between Thudguard and the traditional cycle helmet is the outlining shape.  There have been many different attempts at safety hat design but the most popular has always been the full head protection form.  With this in mind, Thudguard began with this traditional and accepted appearance.

Thudguard is for babies and toddlers who are learning to walk in a world of hard surfaces and protects by acting as a cushion between the baby's head and danger, usually when they fall over.  The cycle helmet is hard, heavier and would not be suitable for this.

Thudguard is made from incredibly advanced lightweight foam that gives maximum impact protection around a baby's head in the early years when the fontanelle or soft spot, can be vulnerable. Thudguard is not a hard helmet and it won't slide around; shifting weight and adding danger like hard, heavy helmets. Thudguard eliminates the weight and discomfort of leather, plastic and vinyl-covered latex headgear, and all the reasons why children refuse to wear protective headgear.

Thudguard Keyfacts

Size

This stretchy, comfortable design is suitable for the ages between 7 months to just over 2 years, depending on the size of the child's head, stretching from 40 to 50 centimetres or 16 to 20 inches in circumference. It is recommended to take a measurement of your child's head first to confirm the compatibility of the Thudguard sizing.

Weight

Thudguard is one of the lightest head guards in the world, weighing just less than 100 grams / 3.2 oz. This ultra lightweight design is extremely important for an infant's developing neck muscles.

Materials

Thudguard helps cushion the forehead, side and back of the head. It is made from ultra lightweight High Density Foam and medium weight, soft-spun poly / lycra. This makes it ideal for stretching and keeping the shape of the helmet allowing it to be very durable and easily kept clean.
On my personal behalf, I want to lend full support to this effort to prevent and mitigate head injury in babies and small children.
