TeamObsidian AIRFLOW Bike Helmet
TeamObsidian Airflow Helmet provides protection, whether on or off the road. To insure proper use of this helmet, familiarize yourself with its features, fit and care by carefully reading through this manual before wearing your new helmet.
PROTECTION AND VENTILATION
The outershell allows the helmet to be rated one of the lightest helmets while providing excellent durability and integrity. The multiple vents with inner air channels draw the air through the helmet and over the brow for maximum cooling.
The helmet must fit properly to be effective. With a proper fit, the helmet will not move back and forth or side to side while fastened.
This Bike Helmet uses a quick-release buckle that is simple and can be buckled and unbuckled without changing the adjustment. The straps must be snugly and evenly tensioned. Place the helmet firmly on your head and fasten the buckle.
Notice which strap is loose. Tighten the loose strap after removing the helmet.
To tighten the chin strap, hold the buckle with one hand. Then pull the excess strap in through. (See Diagram A).
To tighten the rear strap, pull excess from the rear of strap 2. Hold the helmet with one hand. With the other hand, hold the strap where they pass under your chin. Then pull from side to side to balance the length of all four straps. (See diagram B).
The helmet must sit firmly and level on your head. (See Diagram C) To lower the front of the helmet to cover your forehead, tighten the chin strap and loosen the rear strap. To raise the front, loosen the chin strap and tighten the rear strap.
To check for proper tension, put on the helmet and fasten the buckle. Open your mouth. You should feel the strap pulling against your chin.
Then attempt to pull the helmet off the front or rear. If the helmet comes off, increase the strap tension. The helmet should not be able to roll for- ward or backward excessively. It should not be possible to remove the helmet without unfastening the buckle.
The important thing to remember is that the helmet fits snugly. If you can tilt it forward or backward you need to tighten the strap adjustment.
The straps should be positioned thatt they do not cover the ears and that the buckle is away from the jaw when correctly fitted.
It is important for the helmet to fit snugly on your head and must be fastened to provide maximum protection.
All adjustments should be checked each time the helmet is worn, making sure it fits snugly at all times.
CARING FOR YOUR HELMET
Clean the headgear with mild soap and water only. The use of any solvents, paints or decals can cause damage to the helmet and make it in- effective in the result of an accident.
KEEP HELMET OUT OF EXTREME HEAT
Helmets will be damaged if exposed to tempera- tures exceeding 65 C. Dark vehicles and storage bags can exceed this on very hot days. Heat damaged helmets will have random disfigured areas where the textures appear bubbly and uneven. If damaged, helmets should be destroyed and replaced immediately.
This headgear is designed to absorb the energy of a blow by partial destruction or damage itself. Even though such damage may not be visible, the helmet should be destroyed or replaced, if it is involved in an injury - related fall.
Unfortunately, some accidents result in head injury that cannot be prevented by ANY helmet. Depending on the type of impact, even very low speeds can result in a serious head injury or fatality. Always ride with extreme caution and be sure to read this manual thoroughly.
The Bicycle - Sports Safety Helmet is designed and intended exclusively for use while cycling and other non-motorized sports. It is not intended for and will not provide adequate, safe protection if used during motorsport or moped use. No helmet can protect the wearer against all unforeseeable impacts. However, for maximum protection, the helmet must fit well and all retention straps must be securely fastened.
