Place the helmet level on the rider's head. If the helmet contains a dial, adjust the dial to fit the rider securely. Without harnessing the chinstrap, have the rider shake their head from side-to-side and front-to-back, check for movement and ask the rider if there is an even pressure or if there is any pinching or air pockets. If the helmet does not have a dial-fit system and there is movement from side to side but not front to back, try our oval liner, which is thicker on the sides than front to back. If there is movement overall or front to back, try going down a size. Once you’ve found a secure fit, move the brim of the helmet up and down, and the rider’s eyebrows should wiggle.
See below for further instructions on measuring for a specific model of a Trauma Void helmet.
Sizing Your EQ3 Helmet
To measure for the best fit, find the circumference of the head. To begin, use a flexible tape measure and place it 1-1/2 cm above the eyebrows, skimming the tops of the ears, take it around the back of the head to the fullest part. To find your size, round up to the nearest centimeter and go up one size from that measurement. Please note that the rider’s hair should be as worn when using the helmet.

Once you've calculated your size, order a Trauma Void EQ3, then check out the video below on how it should fit!
Sizing Your Lynx Helmet
To measure for the best fit, find the circumference of the head. To begin, use a flexible tape measure and place it 1-1/2 cm above the eyebrows, skimming the tops of the ears, take it around the back of the head to the fullest part. Using the rider’s measurement and the chart below, find the corresponding helmet for their size range. Please note that the rider’s hair should be as worn when using the helmet.

The Lynx helmets include a retention system. After fitting the rider for their helmet, adjust the dial so that the helmet fits securely, then adjust the chinstrap.
After you've figured out your size, shop for a new riding helmet, then check out the video below to see how our Lynx should fit!
Still not sure?
Trauma Void recommends riders to wear their helmet around their home for 15-20 minutes with the hangtags still attached. This way, riders can be sure that their helmet is comfortable prior to mounting and can return the helmet if needed. Please note that the helmet should feel secure after this period. If the rider gets a headache or the helmet feels that the helmet can now move when they check the fit, we recommend exchanging the helmet or trying a different thickness of liner.
