Checking for proper fit
Ensure a Proper Fit: To determine if you have selected the correct helmet size, follow these steps:
- Position the helmet correctly: Ensure your head is fully seated inside the helmet, making contact with the comfort liner on the crown of your head and around the entire circumference. The cheek pads should provide a firm fit against your cheekbone area.
- Test helmet movement: With the chinstrap securely fastened, grip the helmet firmly with both hands. Without moving your head, attempt to move the helmet up and down and from side to side. You should feel the skin of your head and face being pulled over your skull as you try to move the helmet. If the helmet easily moves without this sensation, it is too big and a smaller size is needed.
- Check rotational stability: Try rotating the helmet forward around your ears. It should not be possible to remove the helmet in this manner if the chinstraps are properly fastened.
If you cannot achieve the described fit and adjustments, DO NOT USE THE HELMET as it may result in serious injury or death. Replace the helmet with the correct size for optimal safety.
