Store away from heat sources such as heating appliances or the parcel shelf of a car in the sun, as this can degrade the protective performance of the polystyrene padding.

Additional information

Adjusting the helmet:
For optimal protection, the helmet should be in close contact with the head without squeezing it. When properly adjusted, the helmet should not slide forward, backward, or from side to side, even when you are in motion while riding.
Harness adjustment
For optimal support, the helmet's harness/chinstrap should go under the throat, not over the chin.
Shock absorption
This helmet has been designed to completely or partially absorb impacts to the rider's head in the event of a fall or violent impact. When an impact occurs, the helmet and/or the padding can deform or break to absorb the energy of the impact. DAMAGE MAY NOT BE VISIBLE, BUT ANY HELMET THAT HAS SUFFERED AN IMPACT MUST BE REPLACED.
30 ventilation holes, facing forwards in the direction that the air enters and facing backwards in the direction that heat is evacuated. The polystyrene padding includes aeration vents to circulate air throughout the helmet.
Inner hat:
Foam padding in a 2D and 3D breathable mesh fabric liner for greater comfort and ventilation. The inner liner is removable for cleaning and care. Rip-tab fasteners make it easy to remove. Machine wash the liner at 30° and allow to air dry.

640 g.
The harmonised standard EN 1384 was repealed in October 2014. Until a new version is issued, in order for them to be sold in Europe, all helmets produced after 4 November 2014 must undergo testing and be CE marked. This mark must be supported by compliance with either Directive 89/686/EEC, or document VG1 01.040 2014-12.
Information on standards:
EN 1384 certified helmets can still be worn in training and competitions. However, some organizations may require other standards for their competitions. When in doubt, please consult the event organisers.
Care advice:
Steam brush the outside.

Kask rewelacyjny. Nie przesuwa się, dobrze trzyma się na głowie.
A co do opinii pani Agnieszki z 31/07/2016 odnośnie tego że kask totalnie nie przepuszcza powietrza, to uważam że owa pani używa chyba inny kask. Kask jest świetnie wentylowany. Ani razu nie spociła mi się w nim głowa. Uważam że wentylacja jest rewelacja. Jak cały ten kask :)

Problème de taille

Commandé en taille 58 recommandé par le site reçu et essayé en magasin mais trop petit pour moi même en 59.
Problème à part les premiers prix pas de casque réglable dans cette gamme.
Dommage il me l aurait fallu en 60 ou 61 mais decathlon ne décline pas dans toutes les tailles.
Je me suis rabattu sur un réglable à 19,90e donc je suis du reste très content.

Brand response :

Bonjour Monsieur,
Je vous remercie d’avoir pris le temps de nous transmettre ce précieux retour sur la bombe C700 Fouganza. Je suis sincèrement navré de constater votre mécontentement et comprends parfaitement vos remarques.
Nous avons conscience des problèmes de taille que vous évoquez. Pour se faire, nous avons prévu l'année prochaine de sortir de nouveaux casques qui couvriront les tailles 60 et 61, avec un usage similaire au C700.

Mes sincères excuses, en espérant que votre prochaine expérience chez Decathlon vous satisfera d'avantage.
Bien cordialement.

    It did it's job

    I came off earlier in the year and bumped my head on the floor in the process. I felt this cushion the impact and came away with no dizziness, concussion etc. It certainly did it's job. It's worth noting there are no visible marks or cracks on it, but I will be replacing it before riding again just to be safe. And at this price it'd be really daft not to.

    It's very comfortable, good weight and looks nice.

    The only complaint I could have about this helmet is that the air holes make no difference at all. It's just as hot as any other helmet I've ever worn. (Including all in one skull caps with no air holes).

    Very impressed!

    I bought the brown helmet in this style for general schooling at home as it’s not competition legal but perfectly suitable for general use. I am so impressed with how smart it looks. I went for 55cm as that my normal size, it’s snug but the larger size would have been too big so I’m happy with the fit. I’m looking forward to matching it up with my brown boots and Eskadron set for my next dressage lesson.
