|Your helmet fit is not only critical to the comfort and enjoyment of
your helmet, it also plays a critical role in the performance of your
helmet in the event of a collision. Never purchase or wear a helmet
without ensuring a snug fit. There are several methods and tricks to
size a helmet.|
To measure your head size, wrap a cloth tape measure horizontally around
your head about one inch above your eyebrows and ears. This will
measure the largest portion of your head.
Select the helmet size that is closest to your head size. Often times
your head measurement may fall between two helmet sizes. When this
occurs you should first try the smaller size.
When wearing a
helmet, it should be snug. If it is not snug, it is too big for you.
With the helmet on and chin strap fastened, if you can move the helmet
easily from side to side and up and down without moving your head, the
helmet is too big. Try a size smaller.
Be aware that different helmets fit different head shapes. A helmet that

Stand in a mirror and bend to one side. Where your body creases is your
natural waist. Measure around your natural waist line while keeping the
tape measure parallel with the floor. Relax when taking the measurement.
The hip measurement is the total circumference at your hip?s largest
point. Keep tape measure parallel to the floor, and relax when taking
The inseam is the total length of the inside seam from your crotch to
your ankle. Stand straight, but relax when taking measurement.
The outseam is the length of the outside seam from your waist to your ankle.
To find the proper size gloves, measure the circumference around your
dominant hand, across your palm and just behind your knuckles, not
including your thumb. If the measured size of your hand is in between
sizes of the gloves that interest you, choose the size larger if you
want a loose fit and the smaller size if you like a tighter fit.
Remember that leather gloves will break in and stretch after some use.
