Re: best type of helmet & chest protector for youth

I would first look for on that is snell aproved. Next proper fit is a must. Thor, O'Neal, and Answer produce good helmets. My son uses bell helmets because the seem to fit him very well. Just remember the helmet is the most important piece of protection gear you can buy. So I would spend most of my money in that area (remember you get what you pay for)think of it as a cheap insurance policy. On shest protectors I like either the thor or fox model. The most important thing in this area is how the unit fits. Make sure they have full range of movement, because this could restrict them in a paniced moment and cause them to crash.
