No amount of protective equipment is going to stop you from cycling around like an idiot.

"We're not looking to take bikes away from the kids who forget their helmets," School Resource Officer David Gatchell said yesterday. "This isn't something where we're looking to collect a hundred bikes. We don't want to seize bikes, but for the kids who repeatedly ignore the warnings, it will happen."
Riding a bike - or scooter or in-line skates - without a helmet is illegal for anyone younger than 17 in Massachusetts.
