Place the helmet on your head and adjust the cradle system. Shake your head gently to check that the helmet is on properly: the helmet shouldn’t move. Side strap buckles: Adjust the side buckles so they form a «Y» under the ear lobe, without covering it. Adjust the length of the straps to ensure that the helmet fits properly at the back (doesn’t expose forehead) and at the front (doesn’t impede vision).
