    Default Better helmet fit

    Hey all, anyone have any tips on how to get your helmet to fit more snugly. Mine is always sliding off and getting in the way. Anything i can do other than getting a strap for it?

    Im not sure of the model il post it tomorrow after truck checks.

    Adjust it properly and use your chinstrap.

    Reach around the back of yo ridiculous head and turn that knob to the right.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

    How old is this helmet? I bet that it was an adjustment in the back to adjust for head size.

    I think we have the same helmets too. One of our kid's head is small enough that the helmet won't adjust small enough to get a snug fit. We never really did anything to fix the problem, he just has it as tight as it goes and he lives with it.

    If you can't describe it, how about a picture of it?

    If you have a chinstrap I suggest get use to using it xause some instructors in the academy from what I was told crack down on having it in the back of your helmet. Also for adjusting, there should be someting inside of the helmet to unclip and fix it to make it tighter and however you want it to your liking.
