Yes! When it comes to riding an e-scooter, safety should always come first. Whether you're a seasoned rider or just starting out, wearing a helmet can literally mean the difference between life and death in the event of an accident.
In New Zealand, you are not legally required to wear a helmet whilst riding an E-Scooter however, the New Zealand Transport Agency “strongly recommend[s] that e-scooters riders wear helmets”. And at Storm Rides, we agree - just because something isn't technically required by law doesn't mean it's not a smart move!

1. Place the tape about 1 inch (or 0.5 cm) above your eyebrows and wrap it around your head to get the circumference.
2. Do it more than once to make sure you're getting a consistent reading.
Pro tip: having another person measure you makes things way easier.
3. Helmet sizes are usually listed in centimetres. So if you measured your head in inches, it's time to whip out that calculator and convert it to cm.
Once you've got your head measurement in cm, you'll have a better idea of what size helmet you need.
