One of the most effective ways to prevent injury in a motorcycle collision is by wearing a helmet each time you ride. However, it’s equally important to make sure that the helmet you wear fits properly around the size and shape of your head. If you choose a helmet that doesn’t fit correctly, it can fall off during a collision, leaving your head incredibly vulnerable to injury.
In this video, an experienced motorcyclist shows how to choose a properly fitted helmet. As he explains, the size descriptions vary by helmet manufacturer, so you always need to try potential helmets on. When you try on a helmet, hold it by the chin and make sure that it isn’t loose enough to turn all the way around your head.
