Size guide: Measuring for Full Face HelmetsUpdated 2 years ago

Full-face helmets are undoubtedly more protective than an open face helmet, but they can be a bit more tricky to fit. They don't have a retention system and instead rely on pad sizing to determine the fit. There is also far tighter tolerances between the sizes, so while you may be a medium in one brands open face helmet, you may not be a medium in their full face.

Need help measuring your head for a full face? 

This step is effectively the same as an open face, but you do definitely have to be more precise with the measuring. 

For this, you'll need a cloth tape, or piece of string. Wrap that around your head, typically two finger widths above your eyebrows.

From here, compare that diameter to the sizing chart available on the helmet you like. If you're smack bang between sizes, we always recommend choosing the smaller option. It's far better to have a snug fit than it is to have a big loose bucket around your head.
