CCM or Bauer Helmet: Adjusting Size and Fit

Modern hockey helmets from brands such as Bauer and CCM can be adjusted to fit the size and shape of your head – without the need for any tools. Here, we explain how a hockey helmet should fit and how you can adjust it for a perfect fit.

No matter which hockey helmet you choose, it should protect against concussions and other head injuries. Besides being certified (CE-marked), it's crucial that it fits properly on the head to provide optimal protection. By selecting the right size and adjusting the helmet to fit your head, you can enjoy a comfortable helmet that provides adequate protection, allowing you to feel safe on the ice and fully focus on the game. Both CCM and Bauer produce helmets that can be quickly and easily adjusted to fit the head without the need for any tools. 

Here you'll find our entire selection of helmets – from brands like Bauer, CCM, and Warrior.

How to Choose the Right Size

By comparing your head measurement with the size charts provided on the product pages, you ensure that the helmet is the correct size. The head measurement corresponds to the circumference of your head, starting just above the eyebrows and taking the longest possible path around the back of the head.


Here's how to adjust the helmet to your head – for a perfect fit

When you receive your hockey helmet, start by fully expanding it before placing it on your head. Do this by opening the clasps or flaps found on the helmet. For older models, you might need a screwdriver to open the helmet by loosening the screws. Note that the front edge of the helmet should sit just above your eyebrows when worn. From there, tighten the helmet so it sits securely without squeezing too tightly or causing discomfort.

New hockey helmets from CCM and Bauer can be easily adjusted to fit your head by manually opening the clasps/flaps provided – either on the side, top, or back of the helmet. By releasing these clasps, you can either compress or expand the helmet, depending on your desired adjustment.
