Q What lids will stop my bi­jou bonce look­ing ridicu­lous?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Mcn garage -

I’ve been try­ing on hel­mets and even the ones in XS size look mas­sive on me. How can I find some­thing that won’t make me look stupid? Rafael Lester, Hadleigh, Es­sex

An­swered by Tony Hoare, MCN Con­sumer Editor A hel­met’s outer size and in­ner size don’t al­ways re­late well be­cause some hel­mets, es­pe­cially cheaper ones, only come in one or two shell sizes and then the fit is ad­justed with thicker or thin­ner pad­ding. It’s be­cause each in­di­vid­ual shell size has to be safety tested sep­a­rately, adding cost. Look in the spec­i­fi­ca­tion for hel­mets that come in three or four shell sizes. Then there should be a ded­i­cated shell for ex­tra small and small heads, mean­ing you won’t have to wear a hel­met that’s big enough for a 6ft 5in bloke but with three feet of foam lin­ing. Al­ter­na­tively, brands such as HJC make a ded­i­cated model (the CLY) for smaller heads.
