A Sikh boy rides a bike while wearing a helmet that accommodates his turban.

Mom creates first safety-certified helmets for Sikh children

When it comes to our children, we all want to feel assured that they’re safe during playtime. Bike riding especially is a fun activity for children, but one that requires a helmet for safety, and finding the right fit is crucial.

After one mom discovered that finding a helmet to accommodate turbans was incredibly difficult, she decided to do something about it. 

According to this article in CTV News, Tina Singh, an occupational therapist and mom of three boys, first encountered the problem with her 10-year-old son when standard helmets would sit too high on his head. She found she had to hollow out the inside of a helmet to make space for her son’s turban and hair, but it wasn’t a viable long-term solution.

That’s when Singh decided to create her own. She approached a designer to create a proper helmet for her Sikh children. And Bold Helmets was the result.

Safety-certified multisport helmets for Sikh kids

Here’s what to expect from Bold Helmets:

  • Safety certified for bicycle, kick scooter, inline skating, and skateboarding
  • Designed for kids ages 5 to 12 years old
  • Helmet size: 48-56cm
  • Come in blue, red, and matte black

Singh said it best, as quoted in the CTV article above: “Let’s highlight how we can create products that are more inclusive and diverse so that we can increase participation and so no one is left out – so no kid is left out – of participating in sports and activities that their peers might join in.”
