Fitting & Adjustments

Fitting
To be effective, the helmet must fit correctly. Try on the helmet. If the helmet is too small, exchange it for the next size larger. The helmet should fit snugly but comfortable. If the fit is comfortable and the skin on your forehead moves with the helmet, a proper fit has been accomplished. If not the helmet is too loose. Do not wear the helmet tipped back on the head, because retention straps cannot be property adjusted and the helmet may be ejected in an accident. If an additional free sizing pod is included use in the event it is needed. If your helmet has a Dial Fit System- just dial to fit. It has a sell-positioning component that provides a stable, comfortable fit that (eliminates forward and backward shift.)

A helmet protects only what it covers. It does not protect the neck or any area of the head it doesn't cover. Always wear a helmet low in the front to protect the forehead. Make sure the helmet fits snugly and toe straps are adjusted to hold the helmet firmly in place when tightly fastened.

Adjustments
The chin-strap is an integral part of your helmet's protection system. It must be property adjusted and used. The chin-strap must fit well under the chin, up against the throat, and be as snug as possible.

The buckle is fastened by clicking the two parts securely together. An audible -Click" will you know the buckle is secured. To release the buckle, gently squeeze on both sides of the buckle. Any helmet that has a metal buckle and hook Clip the free end of the metal buckle over the metal hook. Adjust the chin strap by pulling until you have achieved snug but comfortable fit and soap leather above the hook in place.

Final Check
A properly fitted, well adjusted, and correctly positioned helmet is more likely to remain in place during an accident, will give the most protection available for the design, and will be the most comfortable to wear. With the helmet on and tightly fastened, try to remove it by roiling it backwards and forwards as far as possible. The helmet should not be able to be removed or roll backwards or forwards to expose the forehead or obscure vision. Repeat fitting steps as necessary until you have the correct fit.

All adjustments should be checked each time the helmet is worn, making sure it fits snugly and correctly at all times.
