GPA Classic Helmet
GPA Classic Helmet
To properly size your helmet, measure the circumference of your head by placing the measuring tape roughly one inch above the eyebrow. Different helmet manufacturers have different sizing, so consult the size chart for the particular helmet that you are purchasing. Also consider how you will wear your hair in your helmet. If you are planning on wearing your hair up inside the helmet, allow room for this when choosing a size. When you receive the helmet, place it on your head without fastening the harness. If applicable, adjust the dial on the back of the helmet. Make sure the brim is resting no more than one inch above your eyebrows. Gently try to move the brim up and down. If your eyebrows move, your helmet fits correctly from front to back. Next, shake your head side to side, to the left and to the right. The helmet should remain in place. If either of these tests result in movement, you will want to drop down a size. If the helmet seems to be "perched" on top of your head, you will want to consider moving up a size.
When to change one's helmet?
The helmet comes under pressure in a fall or a collision. The outer shell is designed to prevent penetration (example: from a sharp stone, a horse's hoof). The shock-absorbing inner lining, specially designed for this purpose, absorbs the shock by its deformation reaction. So, after an impact, even if the outer shell does not look damaged, the inner lining no longer performs its role as shock-absorber. Only the outer part of the helmet will be active and the inner shock-absorbing lining will have a much reduced effectiveness.

How to take care of your helmet?
If the outer surface of the helmet is made of Lorica® (a kind of synthetic leather), you clean the helmet (without solvents!) with soap and water using a sponge or a soft brush. This type of coating has been given a Scotchgard protection (3M product) against various kinds of stains. For painted helmets, a sponge or a soft brush is enough. Concerning the internal lining, GPA advises you to replace it with the replacement lining available from your usual dealer.

When to change the inner lining of the helmet?
This decision must take into account the hygiene and comfort aspects. You should get a replacement in the following cases:  The internal lining of the helmet is dirty and/or worn out. To guarantee the snug fit of the helmet on the head when the padding flattens out in places. To adapt and/or optimize the fit of the helmet on the head with a choice of 3 different levels of padding thickness.

Why are the prices of GPA helmets high?
For the following complementary reasons: On top of the regulatory and safety aspects, GPA takes into consideration the aesthetic appeal and comfort of each helmet. GPA starts out with the principle that a helmet aimed at protecting the head requires considerable design input and research work in order to achieve the objective of maximum safety. And not the opposite: i.e. start out with the marketing and pricing aspects and then try to design a safety product aimed at protecting the head. GPA chooses only the best suppliers of raw materials.

What type of helmet for what riding activity?
Only one standard regulates the manufacture of helmets: However, the external design has been researched and developed to meet all the habitual uses. The GPA helmets protect the rider's head no matter which sport is practiced: eventing, endurance, polo, driving and gallop races, and leisure riding. Hence, no sport lays down any specific legal requirement or standard. The different GPA model can be used for every sport.
