To ensure you purchase the correct sized helmet, you need to measure the crown of your head. With a tape measure or piece of string, measure around your head, just above your ears in centimetres. Then refer to the information below to ensure you buy the correct helmet. Helmets should be a snug, secure fit and may be a little tighter than the worn one you might be used to. The fit of new helmets will relax a little over time.
It is always best to measure your head accurately and not rely on a comparison to the size of your old helmet as different brands do vary. 95 customers out of 100 choose the right size but just in case you are unlucky and order the wrong size, simply return it to Hedtec and they will send a replacement free of charge.
The adults sizes for the Rapido, Rapido HANS, Xtreme II and Demon HANS correspond as below:
XS = 52-53cm
S = 54-55cm
M = 56-57cm
L = 58-59cm
XL = 60-61cm
XXL = 62-63cm
The Junior sizes for our outstanding new Colt helmet are as below:
XS = 53-54cm
S = 55-56cm
M = 57-58cm
L = 59-60cm
The best way is to hold the chin straps to the side and even slightly stretch the helmet as you pull it over your head. Pass the strap through the two D rings, then split the two D rings and pass the strap back through and pull it snug. This secures the helmet.
To remove the helmet pull the D ring tab outward (away from your face) and release the strap tension. Then unthread the strap through the D rings. Then simply pull the chin straps to the side and whilst pulling outwards lift the helmet from your head.
