Bern Junior Pad Set Review – Results of our Test Rides
Made with compression molded foam and low-profile polycarbonate caps, Bern’s junior pads are the perfect confident booster for kids aged 5 to 8. While older kids tend to be confident in their pedal and balancing, they are often hesitant to be more adventurous on their bike. Knee pads and elbow pads, however, can give them to confidence to try new skills and tricks at skate parks, pump tracks or on a simple wood plank jump on the sidewalk.
