Helmet Fitting Guide

Helmet Fitting Guide

To help you choose the best motorcycle helmet for you, we've provided you with a series of steps below to ensure proper motorcycle helmet fit.

  • Utilize a motorcycle helmet manufacturer's fitting chart and measuring tape.
  • Find the corresponding motorcycle helmet size category: small, medium, large, extra large.
  • Widen the helmet by tugging chin straps outward and place it over your head.
  • Keep in mind that the helmet should fit snugly and comfortably on your head.
  • Make sure the helmet rests tightly against your forehead--you should not be able to wedge your thumb between the helmet and your forehead.
  • Adjust and fasten the chin strap, but don't allow it to cinch your neck.
  • Give your head a shake to ensure that the helmet does not shift around or slide off your head.
  • Mount your motorcycle in riding position--the top of the helmet should not affect your vision. Along with clear vertical vision, you should have 100% vision to your left and right (motorcycle helmet manufacturers are required by law to account for lateral vision).
  • If you wear glasses while riding, make sure the helmet fits properly over and around them.
  • Press down on the top of the motorcycle helmet. Hold it down and make certain the helmet feels comfortable and surrounds your whole head.
  • Lastly, check for all additional comfort, convenience and motorcycle helmet safety features before taking your motorcycle for a ride.
