BHO Direct Helmet Size Guide
If you've never bought a helmet online before, don't worry, thousands of customers every month enjoy the convenience of buying their helmets online.
A badly fitting helmet might not just be uncomfortable, more noisy and might shift about when riding if overly large or contribute to tension if it's too little, it's also dangerous. A helmet just won't shield or function as intended if the head inside it isn't comfortably fitted with the crash-resistant material within the casing.
Helmet dimensions are generally as follows:
An average head size for a man in the UK is 58 cms. The average head size for a woman in the UK is 56 cms.
To come to a better decision on dimensions we'd suggest measuring yours around your forehead. Helmets can be found in sizes from 50cm up to 67cm! If you measure your head to be 58.5cm along with a Medium is 57-58cm, comparing with a Big being 59-60cm, we'd usually suggest opting for the more compact size as the inside will compress over time. The helmet may only be attempted on (not being used on the street ), no pin lock fitted, no protective picture or tags removed along with the bag and outside box at the condition we shipped to yourself.
The way to test your helmet
Whenever your beautiful new helmet arrives, then wear it (after studying the information sheet included in the box) and wiggle it around to be certain that the surface of your head matches and can be located right in. Give the helmet a push against the front towards the brow to find out if it provides you with some pain or distress. Do up the strap and tighten it till you feel it's fairly tight (although not embarrassing - you have to breathe!) Look in a mirror - how exactly does this fit on the eyebrow? If it is possible to fit a few fingers between your cheek and the helmet cheekpads then it's too large, if it's pressing so tight that your lips are between your teeth and you can not speak, then it might be too tiny! Please be aware that cheek pads do squeeze over the years in order that they kind of wear. If you're generally pleased with the match, then leave the helmet for a fantastic period of time to make sure it's not pressing in areas which aren't immediately apparant. When a helmet is actually pressing in your own forehead this can occasionally cause a hassle over time therefore that it can be worth trying another size or manufacturer. It's crucial to browse our Returns Policy about helmets along with the Advice Sheet included with your purchase, prior to opting for a ride for a helmet cannot subsequently be returned when it doesn't fit or you're not satisfied with it.
