Frequently Asked Questions/Recommendations

  • What if I want to wear my hair up inside my helmet? Answer: Check how much space there is at the base of the back of the helmet. If you long or thick hair, it is advised to go up a size to ensure proper fitting. Make sure when your hair is up, that the hair is not creating pressure on the back of your head. Fit your helmet with the hair down first. The helmet still has to fit the shape of your head well without your hair up. When your hair is up, always use a good quality hair net.
  • Never get a bigger size for a child so they can grow into it. Because a helmet that doesn't fit your child's head properly at the moment of impact, is not going to provide adequate safety and protection.
  • The maximum lifespan of an equestrian helmet is 5 years. Even without an accident, it is good practice to replace your helmet because of new technology and general wear and tear.
  • How can I care for my helmet to give it the longest possible lifespan? Answer: When storing, avoid exposing your helmet to extreme conditions, such as heat, moisture, direct sunlight, or freezing temperatures.
