How do I adjust my ski helmet properly?

To avoid injury and ensure maximum comfort, the helmet needs to sit perfectly on the head.

A few tips for adjusting the ski helmet

Measuring head circumference

First the circumference of the head needs to be measured to determine the appropriate helmet size. A measuring tape offers the easiest solution: measure the full circumference of the head two finger widths above the eyebrows and above the ears. Tip: if you don’t have a measuring tape, you can also use a piece of string and then measure it with a ruler. 

Helmet size

The “from-to” size can be found inside the helmet itself: each uvex helmet size accommodates a range of head sizes such as 52–57 cm and 56–61 cm. Alternatively, you can ask the specialist retailer about your helmet size. 

 

Height adjustment system

Some uvex helmets have an integrated height adjustment system to comfortably position the helmet around the ears. 

Width adjustment system

The width adjustment system can be used to adjust the circumference of the helmet and liner. Put the helmet on and turn the dial at the back of the head so that you feel full pressure around the circumference of the liner. The helmet itself should no longer move when you shake your head lightly with the chin strap open. 

Monomatic comfort closure

The helmet must be level on the head: not too low on the forehead or the neck. Close the chin strap with the uvex monomatic comfort closure. One finger should fit between strap and chin.
