Your Fischer helmet should fit snug and comfortable. Fischer helmets come in lots of sizes, so odds are there?s a size for you. A good fit will give you the maximum amount of comfort, performance and protection. Plus a proper fitting Fischer helmet looks cool.
The front of your helmet should fit about 2/3 of an inch above your eyebrows. Fischer helmets should sit level on your head, not tilted forward or back. The proper fit is accomplished by following the simple steps below:
To determine correct size, wrap the tape around your head, just above the eyebrows. The tape should be placed comfortably around your head and not too snug. Fischer helmets are sized in centimeters, however, if you have your head size measurement in inches or by hat size, see our conversion chart below to get the correct Fischer size. Make sure you measure the largest part of your head. Note the size of your chosen model at the point of overlap. If you fall between two sizes, you should select the larger size. After you receive your helmet, you can check out the fit as follows:
Putting on Helmet
Align the front rim of the helmet above your eyebrows. If the helmet sits too low you won?t be able to see, and crashing into lift towers is definitely not cool. If the helmet sits too high you?ll look odd and your helmet won?t protect you.
Check for Gaps
Pads should be flush against your head. If this doesn?t happen, try the next smaller size. A properly fitting helmet should fit like your favorite cap.
Those things hanging from the side of your helmet, as good as they look, actually serve a purpose. They keep your helmet attached to your head. First, fasten the buckle below your chin. Pull on the loose ends until your helmet is snug. How snug? You should still be able to drink or eat without discomfort
With the chinstrap fastened, your helmet should be snug and comfortable. Try to roll your helmet off your head. If the skin on your forehead moves, you have a good fit.
Fischer has designed their helmets to work with the majority of snow sport goggles. Read the instructions on fit that the goggle manufacturer has provided, then adjust your helmet as described above. Your goggles sit on the same place on your face, with or without a helmet. The top of your goggle should rest against the rim of the helmet. There should be little to no skin showing between the goggle and the helmet. Some older model goggles are not compatible with helmets and leave too much space between the helmet and goggle, or push down on your nose. If this is the case, it may be time for new goggles.
