i know how u feel... im not saying order a size bigger but from my personal experience, my face felt squished in the helmet and after some research i found that article and some others told me they had the same issue, unfortunately the one i bought was a closeout and could not return it sold it to a motohouston member for a good price

i know discount tire and wheel has KBC helmets. Go thry them on. Also check out 2wheeltoys as they may hook you up on a better helmet. I had a KBC and got a shark form 2 Wheel Toyz for a killer deal. Just a thought.

Talk to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited.
I bought my new helmet there. They were priced competitive with the internet AND they guarantee fit! It's good to support local shops.

BTW I have a KBC helmet (I think the same shell different model) I like it alot.

That's the helmet I originally wanted, but found a shoei for like a few bucks more. Still looks sweet though. Internet shopping is great for deals, but bad for sizing. If anything, see if a sponsor can match it, if not, find one similar and size it for correct fit.

I don't recommend dark helmets, esp. if you ride alot at night. people see movement, and your head is usually swiveling around, w/ black they miss it.

i had a couple KBC's.... they fit my head terribly, so I paid a little more and bought a shoei which is one of the most comfy helmets I have ever worn. my advise is to try on helmets and get one that fits right( different helmets are shaped differently internally) and then look for a design you like. pure waste of money to buy a helmet for just looks alone

IF THEY MISS YOUR HEAD and tail lights, i doubt you bright yellow helmet would save your life from a distracted driver

Honestly each helmet fits diofferently on everyone. what fits by pumpkin might not fit someone elses. SHARK fit me the most comfortable. I tried on Suomy, Arai, Shoei, AGV!!! So best thing to do is try on the helmets and see what fits your cabbage best. Just dont go for looks. Just my .2
