Why did you choose this?
How do I know what the manufacturer date is?
Best Answer: My new Tipperary has the manufacturer label inside the helmet. There is a size label, the CEI rating label and a manufacturer label. I don't know how to tell prior to getting the helmet.
could you please give a sizes chart?
Best Answer: XS - 6 1/4 to 6 3/8 hat size - 19 1/2 to 19 7/8 head size (inches)
S - 6 1/2 to 6 5/8 hat size - 20 1/4 to 20 3/4 head size (inches) M - 6 3/4 to 6 7/8 hat size - 21 1/8 to 21 1/2 head size (inches) L - 7 to 7 1/8 hat size - 21 7/8 to 22 1/4 head size (inches) So find the size of your head (measurements on the right) and then find your corresponding hat size (measurements in the middle) and then find the corresponding XS/S/M/L size (on the left.)
How do you pick the size of helmet to purchase?
Best Answer: I chose a medium since that's what I take in other helmets. The Tipperary comes with different pieces that attach to the inside and help you make a proper fit to your head. Mine fits perfectly and feels wonderful.
how do i meassure for my hat size?
Best Answer: Measure your head with a measuring tape right above your eye brows and around your head (the largest part of your head, in other words). Use this measurement and the size chart located on the right side of the page (under the add to cart button) to find your corresponding hat size.
Is it adjustable?
Best Answer: The helmet itself is not actually adjustable. You use the pads provided to make it fit your head; sounds, "uugghh!" but, really it is not difficult. Between this helmet and the saddle we had made just for me, I can ride without pain from my tail bone or from my head! We used "adjustable" helmets before; they now hang from a top hanger on the wall where no one can reach them because the only time we will ever use those pathetic things is when we are entertaining and need extras and are using our own. I've never used ANY type of helmet that did not give me a headache . . . before my Tipperary. I know, sounds like an advertisement; but really, I mean it! I can ride the entire day rather than 15 minutes.
Is it fit for my kids aged 9 ? She is wearing size 54 now . Any SEI label / BSI kite mark / SNELL label / SAI gobble mark as request by riding school .
Best Answer: I would recommend this helmet to all riders. I don't know what a size 54 equates to in helmet sizes. Measure her head, my circumference = a 6 5/8 helmet which I think is a small and I do have a small head. The helmet is rated with all the labels needed to be OK for any riding school. I copied the size info from another answer to assist you in sizing.
Best Answer: XS - 6 1/4 to 6 3/8 hat size - 19 1/2 to 19 7/8 head size (inches) S - 6 1/2 to 6 5/8 hat size - 20 1/4 to 20 3/4 head size (inches) M - 6 3/4 to 6 7/8 hat size - 21 1/8 to 21 1/2 head size (inches) L - 7 to 7 1/8 hat size - 21 7/8 to 22 1/4 head size (inches)

Best Answer: Please contact our customer service department and we would be more than happy to look into that for you!!
What is the weight of the helmet?
Best Answer: The item weight is about 1 1/2lbs
My head size is 7 3/4 where can I find a helmet that size?
