How to get the perfect fit
A cycle helmet can only protect you it if fits properly. The helmet
should feel snug but not constricting and sit level 1-2 cm above your
eyebrows. Do not tilt it too far backwards or forwards. The Fidlock clasp
must sit under the chin and not on the jawbone. You should not be able to
get more than one finger between your chin and the strap.
Dashel helmets made from 2022 now come with an adjuster dial fit. You may need to attach the adjuster dial at the back of the helmet (some were left unplugged to ensure they fitted into the box in transit). One you have inserted the adjuster dial do not attempt to remove it again.
Before the adjuster dial, Dashel helmets were sold with 2 sets of pads. 5mm and 10mm wide pads. For a tailor made fit, you can mix and match according to whether your head is narrow, high, round or narrow. The pad fit is still an option to purchase if preferred. Spare pads are also available to purchase online.

The pads are just to make the helmet as comfortable as possible. They do
not contribute to the performance of your helmet in a crash, if you wish to
remove some completely then do so.
