HOW TO ADJUST YOUR BIKE HELMET

Properly adjusting your bike helmet is essential for it to work correctly in the event of an impact. Your helmet should follow your movements as if it were a second skin! 

Most products come with a comfortable foam lining and adjustable head circumference. This means that your helmet can be gently adapted so that you will forget it’s even there.

 

LEARN TO ADJUST YOUR BIKE HELMET

For the very best protection;

- Make sure your helmet is stable and that it covers your entire head. It shouldn’t fall forwards or backwards.

- Fasten the buckle. The chin strap should be tight, yet comfortable – you should be able to slide two fingers between the strap and your chin.

- Adjust the straps so that they form a ‘Y’ shape around each ear.

- Then adjust the tightness around the head

- Above all, make sure your helmet can’t come off or move around too much.

Your helmet for your road bike is now properly adjusted and you’re ready to ride your bike!
