Helmet Fittment

Gday,

Helmet fittment is a topic that has widly been done to death and is also something I am suuper fussy with.

I was watching Nitro World games, after a jump this guy talks to the reporter and then receives some man love by TP him self, you can clearly see this guys helmet dosnt fit him well at all!

I thought these guys would have everything perfect as far as safety equipment went.

Its an amazing trick that he does at any rate and is at 18:20,
21:30 is where you can see how his helmet could probally fall off his head with a 10km SE wind.

Either that or I have been wearing helmets way to tight

Watch the Motogp guys put a helmet on. That's tight, and how it should be.

I guess in freestyle the impacts aren't going to be big, so neck injury could be a bigger worry, [easy helmet removal] goggles and the strap can make a helmet pretty snug,and all the shells can handle a low speed hit easy enough could be a personal thing

Yeah good point

I agree about the easy to get of theory, I would have thought a loose helmet would be annoying when spinning around up side down.

I was thinking he left his helmet at home so borrowed old mates
