Motorcycle Helmet Guide

PROTECTION & COMFORT

EVERY HELMET IS MADE OF A SHELL, FOAM AND PADDING.

 

HERE’S WHAT MAKES OURS SO SPECIAL.

1) Rigid outer shell distributes force of impact and resists penetration.

2) EPS Impact-Absorbing Liner crushes to absorb energy of impact. Amount of EPS lining depends on outer-shell material and overall shell size.

3) Comfort Padding, plus Retention System, helps keep helmet in place and provides cushion between outer shell and head.

4) Retention System for safety. Always fasten while riding.

SAFETY TIP:

The shield helmet screws should be checked frequently by the customer to ensure they are secure. Wind vibration can cause the screws to loosen overtime, therefore they should be checked and tightened on a regular basis.

MOTORCYCLE HELMET FIT & SIZING


TIPS TO FINDING THE PROPER HELMET FIT.

1) Position a tape measure about one inch above your brow line and measure around your head. If the measurement falls between sizes, start with the smaller size first.

2) EPS Position the helmet on your head and fasten the retention system securely so the strap fits snugly under the chin with no space between your brow line and the inner lining of the helmet. 

3) Put Grab the side of the helmet with both hands and try rolling it forward off your head. With the retention system securely fastened, you should not be able to roll the helmet forward or off your head.

4) Move your head from front to back and side to side. You should only feel the skin on your head move just slightly with the helmet.

5) The helmet should fit as tight as possible without causing discomfort because over time, the inner liner will compress with use and the helmet will fit slightly larger than when first purchased.

6) Put on the eyewear you intend to wear while riding to ensure the helmet will fit without any uncomfortable pressure points at your ears and the bridge of your nose.

7) Check your range of vision by looking left, right, up and down to ensure no part of the helmet obstructs your field of vision.

WHEN TO REPLACE


EVEN IF A HELMET DOES NOT APPEAR DAMAGED, IT IS 

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY MOST MOTORCYCLE 

SAFETY FOUNDATIONS TO REPLACE YOUR HELMET AT 

LEAST EVERY 3-5 YEARS.

WHY?

Interior protective elements, such as helmet liners and eps structures (impact absorbing layer), deteriorate over time and lose effectiveness in safety, comfort and fit. This is crucial to be aware of because you may not physically see this deterioration.


Helmets that show dents in the shell or fraying of the straps should be replaced immediately.
