How to Properly Fit a Bike Helmet
Wearing bike protective gear is not just a good idea - it's a legal requirement in Australia to wear a bike helmet whenever you ride your bike, whether on or off the road, making it an essential piece of bike safety gear. To ensure you and your kids are properly protected, it's important to get a helmet that's the right size and fitted to your head correctly. Here's what you need to look at to make sure your helmet is on safely and securely:
Your bike helmet should fit on your head nice and snug without being too tight. Make sure it can't move side to side while you're wearing it. Bike helmets come with sizing pads that can be added or removed to make sure you get a secure fit. If you're looking for a kid's helmet, the extra sizing pads can be removed as your child grows. Some helmets have a universal fit ring instead of sizing pads, and if this is the case, simply adjust the ring so the helmet snugly fits on your head.
Your bike helmet should sit low on your forehead with about one or two finger-widths between the helmet and your eyebrows. Take care to make sure the helmet is not sitting too far back on your head, as this leaves your forehead susceptible to injury should you have an accident. A good way to gauge if your helmet is positioned correctly is to check to see if the front rim is visible to you when looking up while wearing your helmet.
Your bike helmet's side straps should form a 'y' shape that sits just below your ears. The size of the 'y's' can be easily adjusted to fit the wearer's head perfectly. The chin strap should feel snug under your chin, with no more than one finger fitting between the strap and your chin. A good way to check if your chin strap is tight enough is to open your mouth wide - the helmet should pull down on your head if it is tight enough.
