HELMET FITTING

A helmet should be snug but not too tight and the chin strap securely fastened as tightly as possible without being uncomfortable.

Once your Fulmer helmet is seated comfortably on your head, thread the chin strap through the D-rings and pull it comfortably tight. Position the strap well back against your throat. Again be sure the strap is always positioned well against your throat. It should be tight enough so that you cannot place your fingers between the strap and your throat.

With the helmet securely fastened, move the helmet side to side, then up and down to insure that your skin movement is the same as that of the helmet. This check can be done with the use of a mirror or with another person observing.

Finally, with the helmet securely fastened, as described above, attempt to roll the helmet forward off your head by firmly pulling upward on the rear of the helmet. You should not be able to remove a correctly fitting helmet in this manner.

If the helmet passes these tests, it is the correct fit for you. However, before any other person wears your helmet, he or she should also make sure that it passes the same tests.

IMPORTANT WARNING ABOUT PRODUCT LIMITATIONS

Unfortunately, some accidents result in head injuries and other type injuries that cannot be prevented by any helmet. Depending on the nature of impact, even a very low-speed accident can result in serious head injury, fatality or other personal injury. Always ride with extreme caution, and be sure you have read all instructions to insure its proper use, fit and care. No helmet can be expected to prevent injury in direct, blunt impacts even at speeds less than thirteen miles per hour, but your new helmet can protect you in many different ways when it is correctly fitted and properly fastened on your head.


HELPFUL FACTS AND TIPS

  1. Even under ideal conditions (with an experienced rider, a properly maintained motorcycle, good roads and clear weather) an accident can happen.
  2. Common sense dictates that you need protection. A quality motorcycle helmet properly fitted and fastened is the most effective protection you can get.
  3. Some reasonable foreseeable impacts may exceed this helmet’s capability to protect against severe injury of death.
  4. Even a minor impact at speeds less than 13 miles per hour can cause serious head injuries.
  5. Fulmer hopes that you will continue to wear a helmet. Naturally we hope that choice will be Fulmer. But for your own safety and well being, purchase a properly-fitted, quality helmet, fasten the chin strap and wear it.
  6. Take good care of your helmet. Do not clean it with anything other than mild soap and water. Many common household cleaners can severely damage your helmet, even if the damage is not visible.
  7. Do not use your helmet if it has been subjected to impact. If you suspect the helmet is damaged, you may send it to Fulmer Helmets, Inc., postage prepaid, for a free inspection.
  8. Remember, no helmet can prevent injury in all accidents. All any good helmet can do is lessen the effect of the blow. Your greatest safety device is your own common sense. Use it!
  9. A helmet only works once. When it protects you, it has done its job.
  10. A secure fit is a good fit. Remember, the finest helmet offers no protection if it is not on your head. Because certain impacts can force a helmet off your head, the proper fit is vital. A helmet should be a little tight when you first try it on, but it conforms to your head with wear.
  11. All helmets have a chin strap. It should be fastened as tightly as possible without being uncomfortable.
  12. Always check the face shield screws on both sides of the helmet before riding. If necessary tighten the screws with a coin or other tool. Do not over tighten screws.
  13. Do not use a tinted face shield when riding at night or in other conditions of poor visibility.
  14. Make no modifications to your helmet, and do not make any change to the chin strap retention system. Do not paint or apply stickers to your helmet.
  15. Helmets are not forever. All elements of a helmet are subject to ageing. Experts recommend that even quality helmets be replaced after four riding seasons.
