How To Measure For A Helmet
It's important to measure your head before purchasing a helmet to ensure your helmet will fit. This will make your ride both comfortable and safe.
All of our helmets should have the cm size for each option, e.g. "S - 56cm". Check each brand and model as they may have a different fit and size.
Pleasure make sure you measure your head before you buy to avoid disappointment!
How to Measure for Moped Helmets
Any helmet should fit snugly, with even pressure on all sides of your head.
Firstly, find a fabric tailors tape measure that has some flex in it. If you don't have one, use some string and measure it against a DIY or firm tape measure.
Place the tape measure around an inch above the eyebrows, feeding it around above the ears to wrap around your head.
This will give you the size you need to match to our sizing. For example, if your head measures 55.3cm, then you know that the 56cm helmet will be best for you.
Making Sure it's a Comfortable Fit (Bicycle Helmets)
You'll want to make sure that the fit is snug, but without uncomfortable pressure in any specific area. It should sit flat on your head and not move too much. Adjust the straps accordingly.
Making Sure it's a Comfortable Fit (Moped Helmets)
When you receive your helmet and try it on, make sure there's not too much movement and that your fingers can't find gaps between the helmet and your cheeks, forehead or rear of your head. This means it's a snug fit which is what you want.
Too much gap means the helmet can move and hit your head in an impact, rather than providing cushioned protection.
Try to twist the helmet from side to side. There should be no movement and the helmet should stay put.
Holding the front and rear of your helmet, move it forward and backwards slightly to wiggle and make sure there is still some movement possible - this should ensure a comfortable fit for longer rides.
However, you don't want it so loose that it will simply slide down over your eyes / face!
Most helmets loosen after a few months of use.
