How to Properly Adjust a Helmet

1. Place the helmet on your head so that it is level and about 1" above your eyebrows.

2. Adjust the pads or rear dial to achieve a secure fit.

3. Slide the straps on both sides to form a "Y" just under and in front of your ear.

4. Fasten and adjust the chin strap so that there is no more than a finger space under the strap.

5. Test the fit. Push the helmet in all directions; there should be no more than 1" of movement in any direction.
