Size Chart



Helmet Sizing Information.



To achieve proper helmet fitment, begin by finding your head circumference size using the method described below. Remember that the helmet sizing you choose should fit around the crown of your head comfortably with no pressure points. The cheekpads should fit firmly around your face. Once your chin strap is fastened, grab the chin bar of the helmet and move it side to side. Your cheeks should move with the helmet, which should not slide across your face. Different thickness cheekpads can be purchased to obtain the perfect fit.



Head Measurement Instructions.



Wrap flexible tape measure around your head approximately on inch above eyebrows and ears. Use this measurement (in either inches or centimeters) to find your helmet size in the chart below.

Vega Altura Solids Good Bang For Your Buck

by - verified purchaser
This is the second Vega helmet that I've bought from Jafrum, again impressed with the quality that you get for the money that you spend. Delivery was faster then expected and was used by my wife for a long ride today. She was very happy with the fit and feel! Good product!

Can't beat for the price

by - verified purchaser
Bought the helmet for my wife who wasn't sure about if this was going to be a hobby she would join me on. It's lightweight, nice coating and mechanisms for visor, decent ventilation and unbeatable price and value. She loves it. For your basic rider, would be tough to beat.

Comfortable full face at a great price

by - verified purchaser
Comfortable full face at a great price. DOT, but I hope I don't have to get in an accident to prove its as good as more expensive full face. First time my ears were not pinched. Visor and chin strap work fine, as does air vents. I think it looks ok for a full face. They also make a 5x.

big head helmets

by - verified purchaser
Good quality helmet plenty of air holes so very little misting up of visor. The only reason that I haven't given five stars is because box states 5xl but the helmet in the box is only 4xl still fits ok so I kept it. Very good price and delivery was in time.

Great for the price

by - verified purchaser
Just took this helmet for its first ride. I got this helmet to wear during cold and rainy weather, it was 40 degrees today, went for a short 80 mile ride, the helmet was great, fix was great, very little noise. It did fog up a little at stop lights, once I got moving it was great. For the price it can't be beat

Great Helmet

First, this is the only helmet that came in my size XXXXL, but I was glad that is was comfortable, affordable, and worth every cent. I wish they made a half helmet too.

Vega Altura

by - verified purchaser
I have one just like this and it is in my opinion the most comfortable helmet I've owned for the price. FULLY vented, vision radious is excellent, cheek pads can be taken out to be cleaned, but would highly recmd a quick release chin strap. The Vega is def. worth the price for the quality.

It worked in the wreck

by - verified purchaser
3 weeks ago I had my first motorcycle wreck when a guy pulled an illegal u turn in front of me without signaling. I flew off the bike and landed on the asphalt, hitting the helmet on the front. I vaguely remember my head bouncing and thinking that it was comfortable, weird as that sounds. The fit was perfect for me so the padding and helmet got to do what they're supposed to do -- protect my head. No head or neck injuries. Thank you! Ordering the same one again!

Economical Helmet Vega Altura Solids Review

by - verified purchaser
My girlfriend and I purchased a matching set for our 2016 Road Glide Ultra. We wanted a full face for those cold days. Great helmet for the money!! My Harley Davidson Headset fits perfectly. I love that the liner is removable. The vents provide adequate ventilation. At speeds above 55mph, you will have a little wind noise from the plastic hinges, but, for the money, you can't beat this product.
One word of caution...If you plan to add communication or have a melon head like me, order one size larger. The helmet provides a pouch for your speakers, but, it is a VERY snug fit. Other than the sizing (the only reason I gave 4 stars), I would HIGHLY recommend this helmet for anyone looking to add communication for those long rides.

Good helmet for 70 bucks

by - verified purchaser
Great fitting helmet, fits every bit as good as 100+ HJC I have had in the past, only one spot in the middle of my forehead that it gave me a red spot on after I took it off, but I'm just getting it broke in though. I have a 23' oblong shaped head, you can tell this helmet is kind of designed in the middle to fit round and oblong shaped heads due to there is a tiny gap on either side of my forehead, I got a large and it fits pretty good and snug. Venting is good as well, only place I sweat is at cheek areas, but when it's 100 degrees out with a flat black helmet what can I expect. The face sheild is kind of tight at first but it loosens up after a while. When I first put it on it was a little noisy when you approached crusing speed but now that I am used to it it's not that bad. I really like this helmet, it's well worth the 70 bucks and I would definately reccomend this helmet to others.

The portion of the hinge mechanism for my Vega Altura that is secured to the helmet is broken. Where can I purchase the left hinge?

Best Answer:Is it the shield pivot plates you are speaking of?

My child's head measures 21.5 inches. What size vega altura or Mach 2.0 jr should I buy?
Isabel C on Nov 21, 2014
Best Answer:21.5 inches should put you in a small helmet. Using the centimeter measurement, your child falls between the sizes. The XS would be the best fit. The small would be the best for growing room.
