When the helmet is properly positioned on your head, both the front and the rear straps should be evenly tensioned, with the strap guides positioned just below the ears. If the straps are uneven, they can be adjusted by pulling them through the rear of the helmet. To adjust the length of the straps, use the strap guides to make the adjustments up or down so that the strap guide is positioned just below the ear. Any slack in the strap must be pulled through the chin buckle. The loose ends of the chin buckle strap must then be passed at least a half inch through the rubber 0 ring. The straps should not cover your ears. Next, close the chin buckle and tighten the combined straps until they are comfortable underneath your chin, as far back towards the throat as is comfortable. Position the buckle so that it is centered side to side. To see if your straps are correctly adjusted, try to pull the helmet off the both the from and the back. If it can be tipped forward, tighten the back straps. If it can be tipped backward, tighten the front straps. If the helmet does not fit properly after adjustment, do not use the helmet!
