How To Fit KASK Riding Helmets
Finding the right helmet that fits your head comfortably can take some trial and error. Everyone’s head is a little different, so it’s important to determine your head size and shape to find the right helmet. Here are the steps to finding the perfect helmet for you:
- Measure your head using a soft fabric measuring tape at the widest part of your head, around one inch above your eyebrows. (Note that KASK helmet measurements are in centimeters or inches.)
- Check the KASK sizing chart and try on a helmet. It should fit snugly, but be comfortable, sitting within the width of one or two fingers above your brow.
- Evaluate the fit. Wear the helmet for a few minutes, and make sure you have no gaps between the helmet and your head. It can be helpful to simulate movement to test its comfort.
- Buckle the chin strap. Adjust the strap to fit snugly under your chin, and make sure the helmet remains in the proper spot on your head. It should not move at all when it’s strapped.
For more detailed information on finding the right helmet for you, take a look at our detailed guide for measuring your head for a helmet. It walks you through the details step-by-step and is especially helpful for beginners or people who have not purchased a new helmet in a while.
KASK Helmet Sizing Guide
Since KASK does make helmets for cycling and snow activities, make sure you use the sizing guide for equestrians for your horse riding needs. Here are KASK’s guides for their equestrian helmets to be sure you select the correct one.
Are KASK Riding Helmets Safe?
When it comes to equestrian riding helmets, one of the top questions you’ll be asking is whether they are safe. After all, that’s the purpose of helmets! KASK helmets meet or exceed all safety standards, and the company is committed to maintaining this level of quality. Their award-winning helmets are designed and created in Italy, so KASK has control of the production to ensure it meets their standards for excellence. We included one of the KASK helmets in our review of the safest helmets available and believe this is an excellent brand overall.
One of the newer helmet safety innovations is MIPS, or a multi-directional impact protection system. This newer safety technology is popular with some brands, though it’s not a requirement with any safety certification agency at this time. KASK helmets do not have MIPS. However, their innovative technology with Multi In-Molding, inner polystyrene cap, and outer polycarbonate shell ensures effective shock absorption. Since they already meet or exceed all safety standards, you can feel confident with KASK helmets.
