when buying your helmet
IMPORTANT information FOR YOUR SAFETY
FITTING AND SIZING
To put on and take off our helmets, always place the rear strap on the back of the head and slide the helmet on. Only wear helmets of a suitable size; helmets which are either too loose or too tight will restrict movement and will reduce the level of protection. For maximum protection, the helmet must fit firmly on the head and the chin strap and adjustable rear strap must be securely fastened.
The helmet should be a firm but comfortable fit and it should not be possible for the helmet to be removed when pulled at the rear in an upward direction. The sizes of our helmets are marked on a label attached inside and on the front of the box. Masuri helmets are available in the following sizes: Club is available in Boys and Youth, Standard and Large. All other helmets are available in Small Men’s, Standard and Large.
