Helmet Safety Ratings
The Safety Helmet Assessment and Rating Programme, is a UK Government Department of Transport scheme for rating helmets and helping buyers to make informed decisions. If it's been tested, you can find the model you’re interested in on their website and view it's score. Do remember that correct fit is just as important though.
Checking the Fit
Concerned about ordering a motorcycle helmet online? Don't be, you can try your new helmet on for size and fit when it arrives and take as much time as you need to ensure you've purchased the correct one. If not, you can easily return it. Here's an overview of how to check the fit:
Hold the straps apart and place it firmly on your head. Some helmets have very thick padding around the neck, but don't be afraid to push past this, providing it doesn’t hurt and you're not likely to get your head stuck. Once it's on, the helmet should feel snug all around your head, especially on your cheeks. However, it shouldn’t cause a feeling of uncomfortable pressure anywhere - pay attention to how it feels on your forehead and temples area. When you take it off it should not leave any red marks on the skin of your forehead. Do bear in mind that helmets 'bed in' after some regular use, so over a relatively short period of time they will become a little more lose than when brand new. If you have any doubt, perhaps leave it on your head for 5 to 10 minutes and then see how you feel.
Fasten the strap properly (so that it is secure and relatively tight, without choking you) and try slowly rotating the helmet from side-to-side, ie. left-right-left-right. If you’re wearing a full face helmet your cheeks should follow the helmet’s movement, while remaining in contact with the cheek pads firmly and comfortably. If the helmet moves or slips on your head it’s probably too big, or just not a particularly great fit for you.
Next, try tilting the helmet forwards and backwards. Again, if it moves or slips easily, it’s probably the wrong size. A final test is to ask someone to try and roll the helmet off your head by carefully pushing up from the rear of the helmet at its base. Make sure that during this test the helmet stays on.
