A ski helmet is the most essential item for keeping safe on the slopes – but only if it is fitted properly. The ideal fit for a helmet is snug but comfortable, and not too big that there is movement but not too small either.
Measuring Your Head
Helmet sizes are measured in centimetres which relate to the size of the circumference of the head.
- Using a tape measure, measure the circumference of your head, two finger widths above the eyebrows.
- Find a helmet corresponding to the size of your head, trying it on to ensure a comfortable fit.
Helmets should move with the head and should not move when the chin strap is fastened.
TIP:Try your helmet on with your goggles – there should be no gap between your goggles and the helmet
Adjusting Your Helmet
Helmets may need to be adjusted to fit the head more comfortably. Many of our helmets have their own adjustment systems for achieving a more comfortable fit.
