HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE HELMET?
Size your SIMBA helmet like a baseball cap. The objective is to fit the helmet snugly to your head for optimal performance.
HOW DO I CUSTOMIZE MY FIT?
First, wear the helmet for a few minutes to see if it fits well. The helmet, once secured, must be comfortable, but it should not move forward/back. If the helmet is loose, insert the Halofit™ Pads.
To do this, we recommend you start with the blue pads (7mm). Do this without removing the paper backing to get your fit.
We have included a set of Velcro tabs to install once the paper backing is removed for a more secure hold. Please make sure your helmet is dry and you do not touch the glue on the tabs prior to installation as oils from your skin will affect the adherence. Install the velcro pads as shown in the diagram to the left. For best results the tabs should be allowed to dry overnight before use.
WHAT IF THERE ARE PRESSURE POINTS IN MY HELMET?
If the pressure point is at the front of the helmet, try placing the soft Halofit™ Pads in the front Halofit™pad channel. This padding will often relieve the forehead pressure.
One of the unique features of the SIMBA helmet is the foam molds to your head. Slight pressure points often disappear after several surf sessions. It is like breaking in a new shoe.
