A proper fitted helmet should be snug all the way around your head. It should not move around and you don't want any excess space between the helmet and your head. But it should not be so tight that you feel pressure or pain points. You can easily perform a "shake test" to check how your Sweet Protection helmet fits. Shake your head around with helmet on. If it moves on its own or shakes separately from you head, the helmet is too big. Use your hand and move the helmet to the left and right, up and down. The skin on your head should move with the helmet without the helmet shifting on its own. You can choose to buckle the helmet now, and make sure the chin strap is tight and fastened correctly. It will not impact the fit of the helmet, just keep the helmet on your head.
The Sweet Protection helmets can be adjusted to fit your head perfectly either by adjusting with Occigrip solution or with the fitpads that comes with the helmet.
The Sweet Protection adjustable fit system
The Occigrip Turn-dial provides easy adjustment with a low volume mechanism. The Occigrip construction provides a firm and comfortable fit and prevents the helmet from rolling on your head. Adjustable in reach and height.
A snug and comfortable helmet fit is important. All Sweet Protection comes with fitpads with your purchase so you can ensure a perfect fit. Place the Fitpads according to the supplied manual for the ultimate personalized fit.
