Looking for which size will fit your head is the simplest thing to measure. The best tool to know your size for the helmet is measurement tap which will tell you an accurate size. It will be comfortable to place the measurement tape on the rider’s skull and an accurate size can be determined. Follow the below mentioned steps to find out the size:

  • Place the measuring tape around your head, it should be wrapped in such a way that it is slightly up from ears and eyebrows and take the tap till the forehead. If in case you cannot do it by yourself then you must ask help from someone.
  • Record the measurement on the piece of paper then compare it with the chart of measurements. Although every company of helmet has a different size so follow your desired company’s size chart in order to have the perfect size of the helmet.

Perfect Helmet should be:

A helmet firstly should be slightly tight (endurable) from the interior side of the Helmet but it should not be so tight that it will hurt you. When a helmet is worn for some time it starts getting adjusted with the shape of the face and gets loosens little. However, it should not become so loose that it can turn easily side to side.

When you will wear a helmet for the first time it will be slightly tight. It should be placed on the head in such a way that one can see easily side to side. Try to put a finger inside the helmet while wearing it and if your finger gets adjusted inside the helmet then please change the helmet.

Ride Safe!
