                                 CORRECT FIT of BODY PROTECTORS


Wear the protector for at least 5 minutes in the warmth to let the heat of your body soften the foam and allow it to mould to the contours of your body.

 The garment should fit securely and reasonably tightly to avoid movement during activity and to ensure that it is in place in the event of an accident.

  The top of the BP should just reach the top of the sternum

(Breastbone)  the neck at the back. at the front and the prominent bone at the base of

 The front of the BP should not be less than 25mm below the ribcage.

   The BP must fit all the way round the torso.

   The BP and SP between them should cover the collarbone.

   The bottom of the back of the protector should not touch the

saddle when mounted (some manufacturers offer short fittings or a

shortening service).

  Check it is comfortable to wear in all simulated riding positions.

Some garments made to BETA 2000 and all garments made to BETA

2009 will have coloured velcro sections on the fastenings. If any

coloured Velcro is showing after fitting this indicates that the BP does

not fit correctly and a larger size should be tried.the BP does

                                       Guide to Riding Helmets

Current Standards – Riding helmet standards you SHOULD be wearing

• PAS 015: 1998 & PAS 015: 2011 (with or without a Kitemark or IC mark)

• Snell E2001 & E2016

• ASTM F1163: 2004a & 2015 with SEI mark (American standard)

• VG1 (with or without a Kitemark or IC mark)

• AS/NZS 3838: 2006 (with SAI Global mark)


What to look for in a correctly fitting riding helmet

A well-fitting hat sits firmly on the head – just above your eyebrows and ears – and should fit snuggly all the way around the head with no pressure points at the temples.

You can check the pressure points by flexing your jaw, which in turn, expands your temples. Pressure experienced when doing this indicates that a helmet is too tight and may cause discomfort after contin­ued wear.

The jaw strap should be tight enough to allow room to fit one finger between your face and the strap.

The back straps/laces should be done as tight as possible, but not so tight that it pulls the jaw strap back so that it is not in a straight line round your face and under your chin.

* Useful tip – the running loop on the jaw strap should be pushed up against the clip to prevent the strap from loosening. An additional running loop should be used to stop the excess strap ma­terial from flapping down.

How to care for your riding helmet

1. Clean inside with a damp sponge and warm water or manufacturers’ hat cleaner foam

2. Do not leave in direct sunlight e.g. on the parcel shelf of a car

3. Do not dry by direct heat e.g on a radiator

4. Keep off the ground in a hat bag for storage and when carrying

Remember - You do not need to fall off to hit your head. It is possible to impact your helmet in many different ways

When to replace your riding helmet

Helmet is positioned too far back on rider’s head.

This could be because it is too big, jaw strap too loose OR it has been put on incor­rectly

* Useful tip – always place/roll the hat on from front to back

1. If it is more than 5 years old.

2. If you have hit your head. The outer shell can look fine but you don’t know what damage has been done to the impact protecting foam inside
