It’s really important to wear a properly fitting motorcycle helmet!
A poorly fitting helmet will be uncomfortable, definitely noisier and potentially dangerous. If it’s too small, it can give headaches and discomfort. If it’s too big, it may move around when riding. Either way, this is bad news for the rider.
A motorcycle helmet simply will not protect or perform as designed if it doesn’t fit correctly. So, make sure you order the correct size.
Before choosing a helmet, we recommend measuring your head to establish the size of helmet you require. Everybody’s head is different, and every brand and helmet style is different.
Using a soft tape measure, measure around the circumference of your head (the widest part of your head), across the forehead slightly above the eyebrows and ears and around the back of your head.
Then you can check the measurement against the manufacturers sizing chart.
Helmets are available in a wide range of sizes. If your head measurement for example 58.5cm and a Medium is 57-58cm and a Large is 59-60cm, we would suggest going for the smaller size (in this case Medium) as the interior will compress over time.
PLEASE NOTE: Medium in one brand, may be a totally different size and fitting in another brand. Don’t assume that they will be the same fitting.
When your helmet arrives, read any advice sheet in the box first and then try it on.
If you are happy with the fit, leave the helmet on your head for a reasonable length of time to ensure it is not causing discomfort in places that were not immediately apparent.
If a helmet is really pressing on your forehead, this can sometimes cause a headache over time so it may be worth trying another size or brand.
