A new edition to the Champion stable is the Air-Tech. A highly lightweight ventilated helmet, the Champion Air-Tech is BSI Kite marked, meeting BS EN 1384 2012 and CE marked through British Standards Notified Body ID No. 0086. The outer shell is injection moulded in high impact thermoplastic ABS and finished with a high tech soft feel paint coating, the ventilation is afforded by two large perforated steel grills to the front/sides and a further grill at the rear to allow a large flow of air through the helmet to the head keeping the wearer cool in all conditions. The inner liner is moulded in high density polystyrene to absorb energy during an impact and has many ventilation slots to allow excellent ventilation. The helmet’s removable head lining is made from high tech moisture wicking material. The Air-Tech helmet is fitted with an adjustable head sizing ring to accommodate a comprehensive range of head sizes and shapes in just three models. The Air-Tech is available in black only and comes in three sizes to cover the following range; Small – 6 1/4 – 6 5/8 or 51cm – 54cm, Medium – 6 3/4 – 7 or 55cm – 57cm, and Large – 7 1/8 – 7 1/2 or 58cm-61cm.
General care of riding hats

Treat your hat like it's a treasure and it is unlikely to let you down when you really need it! Store your hat in a cool dry place, do not allow it to rattle around in the boot of the car as this causes may tiny hairline fractures which eventually weaken the structure. Any hat that has suffered a heavy impact, either when being worn or by being dropped on a hard surface should be replaced. If you have any issues regarding the suitability/condition of your hat please consult your riding instructor who will offer further advice.




Understanding Safety Standards & Kite Marks

When you purchase a new riding hat or jockey skull cap it should conform to either BS EN 1384 or BS PAS 015 1998 standard.

These numbers indicate that the hat design has been impact tested to British standards; the number will be printed on the inside of the hat, usually with a 'kite mark' icon.

Hats that confirm to BS EN 1384 offer suitable protection for leisure riding and are the minimum requirement you should consider for horse riding activities.

The BS PAS 015 1998 standard is awarded to designs that offer a higher level of protection due to the lower profile over the forehead and the base of the skull. These hats offer the best protection for leisure riders and for those who wish to participate in activities such as fast rides and jumping.

Hats with chin-cups are no longer permitted as they have been found to cause a whip lash effect in the event of an impact.


Does this hat fit? -some quick and easy tests!

1. Measure the circumference of the head in centimeters at the widest point -using a flexible dress makers measuring tape.

2. Find the appropriate traditional hat size and jockey skull cap size on the sizing table.

3. Some styles and makes of riding hat are more suited to particular head shapes -for instance skull caps are often more comfortable for those with round rather than oval heads.

4. Put on the hat & adjust the three-point-harness; the two straps that affix to the back of the hat should be adjusted, not just the chin strap.

5. The fit should be snug, but not tight. Any hat that has to be forced on to the head by hauling on the harness or pushing/banging on the crown is far too tight!. If the current hat is giving the wearer headache, it is very likely that they have outgrown that size.

6. Without the chinstrap done up, tilt head right forwards & place hands outstretched -ready to catch the hat. Shake the head left to right. Any hat that slips or falls off of the head is too big.

7. Do up the chin strap & taking not care to catch the wearers face, tap the heel of your hand sharply on the front rim of the hat. The hat should not slide backward on the head or press the back rim into the wearer's neck.

8. Ask the wearer to push forward on the back of the hat with one hand. This should make a gap at the front of the hat. Ask the wearer to put their index finger between their forehead and the hat & then release the pressure on the back of the hat. There should be just enough room to squeeze in one finger width in the front of the hat and it should take a little effort to free.

Returns Policy
Your rights as a consumer (a private individual) to return goods are protected under the EU Distance Selling Directive. The EU Distance Selling Directive does not apply to business-to-business transactions.

You are entitled to cancel your order within 14 days from receipt of goods and to return them for a full refund. You may also return the item for exchange if you prefer (different size and/or colour for example). Do this by contacting us by email or telephone and quoting the order number supplied to you. We will issue you with a Returns Authorisation Number and Returns Guidance Note for the safe return of the goods. Please do not make an unauthorised return as it will not be accepted by us. You are responsible for the cost and risk of loss or damage when returning the goods, so you should take out enough postal or shipping insurance to cover their value. You will also be charged for the cost of sending any items out to you in exchange.

Returns should be received by us within 14 days from authorisation.

If the goods have been in your possession for over 14 days but less than 30 days, then we may authorise a GOODWILL return for either exchange, or for a store credit. We will issue you with a Returns Authorisation Number and Returns Guidance Note for the safe return of the goods. Please do not make an unauthorised return as it will not be accepted by us.

Customers returning from non-EU countries should ensure that our Returns Guidance Notes are followed and the return parcel and tax label are clearly marked 'customer returned used or faulty goods'. The clear identification of a 'customer return' is important in ensuring no re-import taxes and clearance fees are charged as we will not pay these costs.

Any goods returned should be in re-saleable condition, unworn, completely unmarked and hair-free, with all retail tags and tickets attached, all instruction manuals/CD's enclosed, and all retail packaging undamaged.

This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.

GOODS INCORRECTLY SUPPLIED
Firstly, we are very sorry for any inconvenience caused. We do our best to avoid making mistakes with orders by following a series of stringent checks before despatch to the customer. We will issue you with a Returns Authorisation Number and Returns Guidance Note for the safe return of the goods. Please do not make an unauthorised return as it will not be accepted by us.

Once your item has been received and the error will be verified. Once verification is complete we will refund your return postage costs up to a maximum value of £6.95. If the return postage is going to cost more than this, please contact us so that we can arrange a courier collection (Mainland UK inclusive postcodes only), the cost of which will be covered by us once the error has been verified.

FAULTY GOODS
We are very sorry to hear that you are not happy with the quality of your item. Your next steps will depend on how long you have had the item:

Within 6 Months
You may be entitled to a repair or replacement and we may also offer you the option of an exchange or credit note. If we are unable to repair or replace a faulty item, we will refund you back to your original payment method. However if the product has been used we may deduct a percentage for you benefitting from this use.

After 6 Months
Only if your product is covered by a warranty period may you be entitled to a repair or replacement. For most items we cannot put any fault down to a manufacturing issue after this length of time.

Returning a Faulty Item
We will issue you with a Returns Authorisation Number and Returns Guidance Note for the safe return of the goods. We ask that you send the item back for inspection clean and dry. Please do not make an unauthorised return as it will not be accepted by us. Our Customer Service Team will inspect the item and we will contact you with the outcome as soon as possible. Please allow 2-5 working days for the inspection to take place.
Once the manufacturing fault has been verified, your return postage will be reimbursed up to a value of £6.95. If the cost of returning the item is going to exceed this we are able to arrange a courier collection for the cost of £6.95 (Mainland UK inclusive postcodes only) if required, otherwise we recommend using the second class signed for service available through your local Post Office.
Please note that if the item is deemed upon inspection to have been damaged through wear, force or misuse rather than a manufacturing fault, the item would remain your property and you would need to cover the postage cost to have the item returned to you.
