Share on: Twitter Facebook LinkedIn

A bike helmet should not sit too high or low on the rider's head. To check, make sure the bottom of the pad inside the front of the helmet is one or two finger widths above the bike rider's eyebrows. The back of the helmet should not touch the top of the bike rider's neck.

The images below are displayed in the order in which they were tested for comprehension.
