Helmet Fitting Guide
To help you choose the best motorcycle helmet for yourself, we've provided you with a series of steps below to ensure proper motorcycle helmet fit.
-Measure your head with a measuring tape just above your eye brows.
-Use the length in cm and check your size on the helmet.(Almost all helmets have a digit size at the back bottom center)
-Widen the helmet by tugging chin straps outward and place it over your head.
-The normal test I issue to a customer is that the helmet should fit as tight as possible, but never hurt.
-Make sure the helmet rests tightly against your forehead, you should not be able to wedge your thumb between the helmet and your forehead.
-Adjust and fasten the chin strap, but don't allow it to cinch your neck.
-Give your head a shake to ensure that the helmet does not shift around or slide off your head.
-The top of the helmet should not affect your vision. Along with clear vertical vision, you should have 100% vision to your left and right (motorcycle helmet manufacturers are required by law to account for lateral vision).
-If you wear glasses while riding, make sure the helmet fits properly over and around them.
-Press down on the top of the motorcycle helmet. Hold it down and make certain the helmet feels comfortable and surrounds your whole head.
-Lastly, check for all additional comfort, convenience and motorcycle helmet safety features before taking your motorcycle for a ride.
