Here is a photo of a correct lap & shoulder belt fit:
- A gap in the waist is perfectly acceptable. The RideSafer relies on the internal padding on the vest to dissipate the energies of the crash force and prevent intrusion into the abdomen. The padding on the shoulder belt guide dissipates the energies on the collarbone – minimizing potential for clavicle injuries.
- The looseness of the harness straps is also acceptable, if the shoulder belt is placed at the center of the collarbone.
- The lap portion of the seat belt needs to be positioned flat on top of the thighs.
If the fit doesn’t seem quite right, review this video and follow the tips on the page.
