Helmet Fit Check:

  • Your helmet should fit snugly and square on your head. Make sure that it is not tilted too far back or forward on your head.
  • Cheek pads touch, but do not press uncomfortably.
  • Make sure there are no gaps around your temples, brow or back of the neck
  • With the straps securely fastened, shake your head slightly from side to side and back and forth. If it moves or feels loose, then it is too big. (Also remember that the comfort liner will compress a little with use, so a new helmet should fit as tight as you can comfortably wear.)
  • Again with the straps fastened, try to roll the helmet forward off your head. If you can get it off, it is too big.
  • Feel for any pressure spots. Check for any soreness or red spots after you remove the helmet. If you find any, try the next size up or a different model. All brands fit a little different, so try on multiple styles for the best fit.

Fluid Inside integration enhances the safety features of this helmet with a 39% reduction in the force of rotational and linear impact. Includes several pods that absorb impact by simulating the behavior of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain, thus creating an additional protective layer inside the helmet. Resilient EPP, expanded polypropylene, is used as the padding layer lending multi-impact protection due to the foams ability to return to its original shape after compression.
