You’ve made the smart choice to wear a certified helmet when you ride. The next step is to make sure the helmet fit is right for you – not your best friend, sister or brother.

The helmet that fits your friend may not be the best for you, even if you look like the same size. Certain helmets fit some head shapes better. Be open to the right one for you. When you go shopping, wear your hair the way you’ll be wearing it when you ride. A ponytail, clips, headband or other styles can change the way a helmet fits.

The helmet should feel snug around the entire head without pressure. Shake your head. If there’s no motion, that’s a good sign that it fits. It should sit level on your head, covering your forehead. The visor’s brim should be about 1 inch (about the width of two fingers) from your eyebrow.

When you buckle and adjust the retention system, the chin strap should fit snugly and you should feel comfortable in your helmet. Wear it around the store. If it gives you a headache, it’s too tight. It should become less noticeable and more comfortable as you wear it.

Helmet Fit in Three Easy Steps


  • Open the DialFit™ if the helmet comes with this feature
  • Try on the helmet. It should fit snug but not be uncomfortable


  • Adjust the inner padding by folding under the FlipFold™ tabs for more or less cushion
  • Adjust the slide glides on the straps to sit underneath your ears to form a “V“
  • Adjust the length of the retention system straps to fit snug under your jaw and use the o-rings to secure the excess
  • To fine tune your fit, engage the DialFit™ or adjust the slider on the elastic bands of the SureFit™


  • With your helmet level on your head, check the fit and straps and make sure the buckle is locked securely
