HOW DO I CHOOSE A NEW HELMET THAT FITS PROPERLY?

Proper helmet fit is essential because the helmet’s performance can be compromised if it doesn’t fit properly. Other factors such as design, features, and price are also considerations when choosing a helmet. 

Finding the correct fit is easy if you follow the guidelines below. For more tips on fitting helmets, watch our video here. The best way to choose the correct helmet is to make sure it meets the criteria below, this means that it will fit properly and provide the best protection.

Your helmet should:

a) Fit your head comfortably and securely;

b) Offer maximum coverage for the type of ride you are undertaking;

c) Be worn correctly for the type of ride you are undertaking.

In order to offer you the best fit possible, Giro makes helmets in many sizes including:

  • Medium = 55 – 59cm / 21.75 – 23in.
  • Large = 59 – 62.5cm / 23 – 24.25in.
