Health Tip: Fitting a Bicycle Helmet
Use padding to get a better fit

(HealthDay News) -- Wearing a helmet while biking can offer significant protection against head injury, but the helmet must fit properly.

The Cleveland Clinic offers these suggestions:

  • The helmet's padding should offer a more snug fit.
  • Make sure the helmet doesn't move in any direction. It should sit level, not tilted.
  • Look for a helmet labeled with a Consumer Product Safety Commission sticker, which confirms it has met certain safety standards.
  • If wearing a used helmet, make sure it has no cracks or breaks and was made after 1999.
