Just wondering what size helmet most people have.

When I went in to one of the shops to try on helmets, I found it odd that the large fit me really well, since I'm a pretty small guy. Thought I looked ridiculous with the helmet being so big compared to my lack of girth and height.

I then asked the guy if the large was the right size for me. His reply, "all asian guys have big heads" haha

So far I'm the only XS!

Actually, I fit a Small fairly well, but I like my helmets to fit TIGHT! So snug that I'm almost chewing onthe insides of my cheeks.

XS in both a Shoei and a Suomy.

Hey Harps, it is nice to know another person with an XS! I was starting to wonder if I was the only one with a disproportionately small head--even my lacrosse helmet is an XXS. :)

I find it depends on brand, anything from a M to XL

I'm actually in between a Medium and Large for the Aria Signet. The M fits well around the forehead but the cheeks were a bit tight. I went with a Large and the guy at Modern helped me place custom fit foam in the back and now it fits REALLY well.

i think i have a smaller head, but i fit in size large Arai quantum/f. I tried medium, but it feels like my head is in deep ocean with waterpressures that are so extreme, only particles, will be able to survive.

:spinsmile so where's the box for XXS?
barely any companies even MAKE 'em small enough for me!

... and it really reduces the selection!

Us larger guys may get deals on helmets.. but have you ever tried buying size 16 boots?

You win some, you lose some..

Smal KBC VR-1 Euro

Small KBC VR-1 Euro. I'm 5'9 150 pounds just to give u an idea. Basically, whatever you feel is comfortable. If you ain't comfy, you won't feel good when u ride.

Movin' this on over to "Gear".

Big tall WASP that takes a Large here. But not all brands fit my shape of head (that point dontcha know.... :D ). So far I only fit Shoie and HJC. Aria sits on two points and I havn't tried Suomi because the $ticker made me pass out before I could pick it off the shelf.......
