Old threads are the same as new threads to people who find this place in a search, like me. The info is still valid and important. So, THERE!

Maybe the next time it is revived, it will be about 2021 :-)
Nope still 2017 and this thread is still getting revived.

I naturally have chubby cheeks, so with a helmet it makes it even worse, I like goofy as hell, but i'll take looking goofy when the visor is up rather than being in a coma or worse, because of not wearing a helmet.

Re: How tight when buying a new helmet???

you probably should look into finding a bigger lid they come in a few different sizes.

Good luck finding a perfect fit!

Thought I had with my rpha and its fine up to 90 mph. At higher speeds it slides back enough to press nose against window.

Tried a Scorpion recently which seemed like a sweet fit.

Re: How tight when buying a new helmet???

You won't know how well the lid fits till you wear it for a couple hours at least. Getting a good fit is about 90% luck. Got a killer deal on my last hat and it felt good. Still feels good till I hit 200 kph(on a track)when it moves enough to greet nose with visor. Sometimes you just can't win.

Ive been through alot of different skull buckets through the years and i can tell you two helmets of the same brand size and type will fit totally different. Everyone ive liked ive hated for different reasons. Right now im rockin a KBC Force RR dark force size large and its perfect. Its nice and snug, great air flow control, the quick detach visor mounts arent shitty "Big +". Its got a great field of view and the chin strap and buckle are of great quality and super comfy.that That being said the nose piece rubs at high speed and the seal for the visor is shitty and ive redone it myself since new. Now I am happy with it i have had it a good while now amd its held up great without a whole lot of help. However what I like the next man may not ive attached a big sizing chart which any brand worth checking out will provide, with that as a startimg point I would recommend you go to a place that sells what youre interested in and try a few differnt ones typed and sizes but better snug then loose for sure some places also do custom fitment but theyre a little pricey hope this helps
