Sizing & Fitting

To ensure you purchase the correct sized helmet, you need to measure the crown of your head. With a tape measure or piece of string, measure around your head, just above your ears in centimetres. Then refer size chart to ensure you buy the correct helmet.  Helmets should be a snug, secure fit and may be a little tighter than the worn one that you are used to.  The fit of new helmets will relax a little over time.

Additional Information

it is always best to measure your head accurately and not rely on a comparison to the size of your old helmet as different brands do vary. 95 times out of a 100 we ship the right size, but just in case you are unlucky and choose the wrong size, just ship it back to us and we will ship out a replacement free of charge.

Fitting your helmet (full information is provided with your helmet)

The best way is to hold the chin straps to the side and even slightly stretch the helmet as you pull it over your head. Pass the strap through the two D rings, then split the two D rings and pass the strap back through and pull it snug. This secures the helmet.

To remove the helmet 

Pull the D ring tab outward (away from your face) and release the strap tension. Then unthread the strap through the D rings. Then simply pull the chin straps to the side and whilst pulling outwards lift the helmet from your head.

Important warning about product Limitations

Unfortunately some accidents result in injuries that cannot be prevented by any helmet or safety clothing. Even a very low speed accident can result in an impact causing serious head injury or death. Fire retardant clothing can help reduce injuries, but not in all accidents.  Please read the manual provided with your helmet to ensure proper use, fit and care of your helmet.  Please note that Hedtec helmets are not motorcycle helmets and should never be used for public highway use, they are competition car or kart helmets.
