SELECTING YOUR HELMET ONLINE: A RISKY BET

Discomfort vs. Comfort

A misfitting helmet will bother you. It will make your head feel compressed, give you headaches, leave a red mark on your forehead. It will be noisy and increase road fatigue.

Remember that proper fit also means proper weight. If your helmet is too heavy for your neck, you get neck pain and fatigue.

Life Threats vs. Safety

National statistics show helmets reduce the risk of head injury by 69% and the risk of death by 37%. In a crash, improperly fitted helmets can fly off the bikers’ head.

There’s only one way to find the proper fit: try the helmet on. Don’t risk buying a misfit helmet, your life is worth more than a few bucks.

Hassle vs. Ease

Returning a misfit helmet bought online is complicated: you may have to pay the cost of shipping, sometimes a restocking fee.

You need to get a return number from the shopping site, call a carrier, arrange a pick-up.

You have to repackage everything in the original box. (Don’t break or lose anything!)

Discomfort also increases the risk of accident because you are distracted by it. Distractions on a bike are dangerous.

Why risk all this? Just get properly fitted at our shop. Don’t be a statistic.

Debilitating head injuries are not worth any “time saved” buying a helmet online.

Just get properly fitted at our shop. Come visit us, let us help you make a good decision for your protection.

Some online vendors don’t even accept helmet returns. Oftentimes, you have to return the helmet more than once!

Why risk the bother? Come to our store, get properly fitted the first time, and enjoy your new helmet right away. No hassle really.
