Equipment Recommendations

The AERO coaches get asked all the time about equipment recommendations, and we all certainly have our preferences so we have compiled a list for parents to use. The word of caution is that this list is just our opinions and is not meant to be a strict list of models/types/brands/etc. It is just a guide. If you have questions about a particular product do not hesitate to contact your coach and they will be happy to walk you through any decisions to ensure you are getting the right product that is appropriate for your child and is within your budget.

Helmet Safety

Helmets can prevent up to 85% of injuries form cycling accidents.  To protect the athlete's head they must be properly fitted.  No more than 2 fingers between the eyebrows and top of the helmet and no more than 2 fingers between chin and strap.
