helmet help...need sizing experience. - October 22, 2011, 01:51 AM

Has anyone ever compared the fit (or owned both) a Shark RSR2 and an Arai helment? I had the Shark which I absolutely loved except for the fact that the tip of my nose touched the shell just under the faceshield. Everything else was spot on.

I think I want to look into Arai helmets this time and was curious how the shape compares to the Shark. The only helmet I have now is a Scorpion EXO-700, which is a decent everyday helmet except that it tends to push against my forehead and begins to hurt a bit after a decently long ride...and it's much heavier and louder than my Shark was.

Does anybody have experience with these helmets? All that I mentioned above were size medium btw.

Sounds like you have a "long oval" shaped head.

I do as well.

Check out webbikeworld.com for some helmets that fit your shape.
I know the new Arai Signet-Q is the most long oval shape that arai makes.

I have the EXACT same problems with my mile long head. I tried all kinds of different helmets and the ONLY helmet that fits right is the arai profile helmet. I have had mine for about 8 mos now, I commute 130 miles a day for work on my bike and its the helmet that fits snug but doesn't feel like its going to crack my forehead. Great arai deals can be had at compacc.com that's where I got mine, good people.

I have a medium to long oval. The Arai profile fits me well. Just go to the shop and try all of them on. each one fits different head shapes.
