Adjusting the helmet:
For optimal protection, the helmet should be in close contact with the head without squeezing it. When the harness is properly adjusted the helmet should not slide forward, back, or from side to side.
6
Harness adjustment:
For optimal support, the harness must go under the throat, like a chinstrap, not over the chin.
7
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.
8
Standard:
The harmonised standard EN 1384 was repealed in October 2014.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 accompanied either by Directive 89/686/EEC, or by the VG1 01.040 2014-12 document.
9
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. If in doubt, we recommend that you consult the competition organiser.

Care advice:
Wash outer surface with soapy water, rinse, then dry. Wash foam parts at 30°C max. Do not tumble dry.

Great Company to deal with. Thank you.
Do NOT buy if you live in the UK
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this helmet, for my daughter, last week in Decathlon store as it looked as a good value and has a nice teenager girl look. That's the pros.

The cons.... you CAN'T use it in ANY horse riding club in the UK as this is not PAS 015!!! Didn't know that and that's NOT clearly written in the store. Moreover, WHY do you actually sell it in the UK if you can't use it and looking at the comments - Decathlon UK is aware of this. Extremely disappointed!

Either don't sell it in the UK or put a BIG sticker on every non-POS015 helmet - DON'T BUY IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO WEAR IT AT HOME as this is the only thing you can do with this helmet in the UK. It is useless in the UK.
Response of the brand

Dear Sir,

thank you for your review on our horse riding helmet. I am sorry to read that you were not satisfied with our product.
All our helmets are legal in UK and follow the European standards with either Directive 89/686/EEC or VG1 01.040 2014-12. Also, our products are tested in labs and real life situations to ensure the safety and security of our riders. 
It is true that our helmets are not validated PAS015 yet. We are aware that the riding schools are requesting this standard to ride in UK. We are working hard to ensure that all our helmets will be validated PAS015 for winter 2018 and remain the same prices.To ensure that no customer will face this problem, I re-shared with the stores the signage we created. I propose you to return or exchange your helmet in one of our Decathlon stores and apologize about this inconvenience.

Best regards,Eponine - Horse Riding Sport Leader
No kite mark...doh!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
If you want your kids to use this product for riding lessons you'll probably be disappointed; they won't let you because it's not kite marked or PAS15 compliant.

I wish I'd read the other review which tells you this before I bought one and I'd have saved myself 20 quid!

I'll leave it up to you to decide whether Decathlon should have made this clear or not.

If you're reading this after having the same experience you have my commiserations.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your message. We try to make the information regarding hat legislation as clear as possible on the website and in store, we have banners below all the hats that explain whether the hat is PAS015 certified and therefore suitable for use in competitions/schools, or not. However we understand that it is possible to miss these and would be more than happy to offer an exchange or refund for the hats in question.
Apologies for the inconvenience,
Ross

Only problem with it is it's not PAS rated and it didn't say so on the website. I can only use it in private, can't use it at the stables when I have lessons because the insurance specifically ask for PAS and BS rated helmets.
Plus side, it's miles lighter, more comfy and I prefer it to any of the other major brands.
