It is common to come by people saying "you just don't have a Nolan head" or "your head was made for AGVs". Well I would like to get everyone's experience on what brands worked for you, what your head shape is and what brands and models fit you, and what doesn't. Hopefully new riders will find this thread useful as well when they venture into the overwhelming world of gear.
My head shape is considerd a very slightly ovalish round.
My limited experience so far:
I've got a long head (like Alien lol) and the best fit for me is Shoei. I've only tried on a couple of brands to be fair but things like HJC gave me a headache after a couple of minutes. I've tried 3 different Shoei models (Qwest, RF1100 and X-12) and they all fit like a glove.
Shark is the only helmet that I can wear for extended periods of time and be comfortable, perfect fit for meh noggin.
I have a slightly ovoid head I guess?
I can stand Arai but they get uncomfortable on my brow after about 3 hrs of riding.
AGV, Suomy, Bell and Shoei feel like someone is pushing a 2x4 against my forehead which sucks because I really like AGV.
I mean, I don't think I have a caveman-esque brow ridge but damn I can't wear anything off the shelf so I have to play games with Euro guys trying to get a shark stateside.
