Like p*ssy, the tighter the better with helmets.

Oh, it can actually be too tight, if you have pain or your feel your blood pulsing it's too tight-other than that strap it down tight too-it does no good if the helmet flies off because you didn't use the strap.

you want it tight specially when you first buy it.

it should compress slightly after a little time.


if not I believe you can buy smaller pads for suomy helmet, i could be mistaken.
