Helmet Fitment Check

 With the retention system knob turned clockwise until comfortably tight and the chinstrap buckled under the chin and back against the throat, grab the helmet with both hands and try to remove it by rolling the helmet forward and backward as far as you can. This is an important test to ensure that the helmet fits correctly. When you do this, you should feel the chinstrap pull against the underside of your chin and the helmet will resist any movement. If this isn’t the case, tighten the chinstrap and try it again until this happens. If you cannot achieve the proper fit, DO NOT USE THIS HELMET. Replace it with a different size until the correct fit is achieved.

Also, for a proper Helmet Fitment Check if you can roll the helmet forward such that it blocks your vision or if you can roll the helmet backwards such that your forehead is not covered, tighten the chinstrap and the retention system and try again until you cannot roll the helmet forward or backwards.


  • Do not wear anything underneath your helmet, such as a cap, hood, bundled hair, headphones, or barrettes, as the helmet may loosen or come off. Do not wear anyone else’s helmet and don’t loan your helmet to anyone else.
  • Always make sure the buckle is properly fastened before you ride. Failure to follow this instruction could result in serious personal injury, as the helmet may not stay in position while riding or during a fall. For proper use, make sure the loose end of the chinstrap is tucked through the rubber “O” ring.
  • Check for proper fit and adjustment often, including each time you wear it, and periodically during use.
