Helmet safety


A properly fitted helmet should meet the standards of the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) or Snell Memorial Foundation. Properly fitted helmets should:

Be worn flat on your head with the bottom edge parallel to the ground
Sit low on your forehead

Have side straps that form a “V” shape around each ear

Have a buckle that fastens tightly (there should be room to put only two fingers between the strap and your chin)

Have pads inside that you install or remove so the helmet fits snuggly

Not move in any direction when you shake your head

Not interfere with your movement, vision or hearing
