WHEN DOES THE HELMET FIT PROPERLY?
The helmet should surround the head easily, and should be worn level. The front helmet edge should sit 2 finger widths above the bridge of the nose (Fig. 2).
It is easy to check if the helmet fits correctly. All you do is leave the chinstrap undone, and shake your head. If the helmet moves tighten the spin dial and / or use thicker padding.
HOW DO I ADJUST THE CHINSTRAP CORRECTLY?
Position the Strap Adjuster (Fig. 3b) in such a way that neither junctions
nor the straps themselves touch your ears.
To adjust the straps correctly it is imperative to make sure both left and right straps are of even length. To do this open the strap lock on each Melon® Strap Adjuster. Please notice that the rear strap should be longer than the front (Fig. 2).
Once the right length has been found please close these locks.
Additionally the right side chinstrap can be shortened in its entirety, by pulling it further through the
Fidlock® magnetic buckle loop (Fig. 3c).
To check for correct fit, place helmet on head and make any adjustments indicated. Securely fasten retention system. Grasp the helmet and try to rotate it to the front and rear.
A correctly fitted helmet should be comfortable and should not move forward to obscure
vision or rearward to expose the forehead.
HOW DOES THE FIDLOCK® MAGNETIC BUCKLE WORK?
The Melon® urban active helmets come fitted with Fidlock® magnetic closure systems. These are very simple to use and close by placing both ends on top of each other.
To open the closure, simply push the outside part in the direction of the arrow (Fig. 3c).
Before setting off, always make sure the chinstrap is closed!
