How to Properly Fit a Motorcycle Helmet

In the state of Wisconsin, motorcycle helmet laws pertain to riders under the age of 18. Even though riders over 18 do not legally have to wear a helmet, they are actually one of the most important and useful pieces of safety gear for any rider. When you are shopping for a motorcycle helmet, it is important that you buy one that fits properly so it can effectively work to prevent a head injury.

Motorcycle helmets save almost 2,000 lives every year. Unfortunately, helmets only prevent injuries, not accidents. When someone else acts negligently on the road, you could suffer as a result.

  • Utilize the size chart and measuring tape to find out whether you should wear a small, medium, large, or extra-large
  • Remember that helmets should be comfortable, and fit snugly
  • Helmets need to be tight against the forehead where you cannot fit a thumb between your head and the padding
  • The helmet should never block your vision
  • Glasses or goggles should fit comfortably under the helmet

Most stores will have helpful attendants that can help you make a decision about your motorcycle helmet.
