How to choose your skateboard helmet size

How do I know my helmet size for skateboarding?

Step 1: Measure your head

Use a measuring tape to measure around your head one inch above your eyebrows. Or use a string to measure and then lay it out and measure the length of the string.

Step 2: Choose your size

Use the chart to convert the measurement to your helmet size

Step 3: Fit your Helmet

Fit the helmet model you would like to purchase. The helmet should have a snug-but-comfortable fit and should sit within the width of one or two fingers above your brow. A helmet that sits low on your eyebrows is too big.

Step 4: Buckle the Chin Strap

This strap should hold the helmet in place without discomfort.
