Keeping this in consideration, how tight should a motorcycle helmet fit?
The helmet should fit snugly and comfortably onyour head and tightly against your forehead. Grab the helmetin your hands, one on either side of the helmet, hold yourhead steady, and try to rotate the helmet fromside-to-side.
Similarly, how do I know if my helmet is too small? Your helmet is too small if you feel pressure onyour head, especially at the wider extremities or where the innerliner snap buttons are. Wearing a helmet that's toosmall will give you a headache (from the pressure on theskin/skull) within minutes.
In this way, how is a helmet supposed to fit?
The helmet should sit LOW on your forehead. Thereshould only be one or two finger-widths above your eyebrow. Yourchild should be able to look upward and see the front rim of yourbicycle helmet on your own head. The left and right sidestraps should form a "Y" and meet right below yourear.
How tight should full face helmet?
A proper fitting helmet: Feels snug on all sides without havinguncomfortable amounts of pressure or pressure points. Cheek pads ona full face helmet should have some pressure on your cheeksand cheekbones.
