Size adjusts! Turn the dial on the back to tighten or loosen the fit. All safety equipment has limits. Read this helmet manual carefully and follow the instructions completely. Proper Fit is Critical To Helmet Performances: Helmets that slip to the front, back or side of the head expose parts of the skull. Loose or unbuckled straps can allow the helmer to completely fall off the head in an accident. If the helmet cannot be fitted correctly, try a different size helmet. How To Fit a Helmet: 1: Put The Helmet On: The rim of the helmet should be 1-to-2 finger widths above the eyebrows. The helmet needs to be low in front to protect the forehead. If so, proceed to step 2. 2: Adjust The Side Straps: When correct, the side straps should join at a point slightly below and in front of the ears. For easy adjustment, some helmets have a locking buckle, called a Camlock which allows you to adjust the front and rear side straps individually for a more custom fit. Before proceeding to step 3. make sure the buckles are secure, the straps are tight and form a V under the ear lobe. 3: Adjust The Rear Fit System: Position the helmet on your head so that the rear fit system is below the bony protrusion at the back of your head (Occipital Lobe). You want the system to be snug. but not uncomfortable. To adjust the belt for a more custom fit, take your index finger and depress the triangular shaped button, while turning the lower dial with your thumb. Turning the dial clockwise will tighten the fit belt. while turning the dial counter clockwise will loosen the fit belt. 4: Adjust The Chin Strap: Always wear the helmet with the chin strap buckle fastened and the strap pulled tight. Make sure the strap is against the throat, not on the point of the chin. Straps worn on the point of the chin increase the chance of the helmet coming off in an accident. Fig. 4a and Fig. 4b show how to fasten and release the buckle. Make sure the buckle is flush against the skin under the chin and that when. you open your mouth, it is snug on the chin and hugging your head. 5: Check The Fit And Adjustments: Before using the helmet, stand in front of the minor and grab the helmet with both hands and twist it to the left and to the right. If the helmet fits right, the skin on the forehead will move as the helmet moves. If n does not, then the helmet is too loose and is unsafe for use and you need to start over using the top above Now grab the helmet with both hands and try to remove it by rolling the helmet forward and backward. If you can roll it off the head com-pletely or so far that it blocks vision or backward far enough to expose the forehead. then it doesn't fit right and is unsafe for use and you need to start over using the steps above. 6: Take A Test Ride: Once you are satisfied that the helmet fits correctly and that all straps are properly adjusted and tightened, take a short test ride. Pay attention to overall comfort and helmet stability while nding. Make any minor adjustments to the fit pads and straps to improve comfort or stability. You Should Always: Wear your helmet low in the front to protect the forehead. Fasten the buckle and check strap adjustment often. Replace your helmet immediately if it shows any visible signs of damage. Clean your helmet with mild soap and wale. Only. Store your helmet in a cool dry place. Ride safely, and obey all traffic laws. You Should Never: Wear anything under your helmet. Wear a bicycle helmet while on a motor vehicle. Attach anything to your helmet. Let your child play with a helmet, as they may damage it. Wear a helmet that does not fit or cannot be adjusted property. Leave a helmet in direct sun or in a car on a sunny day.
