New Helmet!

Finally got a helmet that matches my jacket and isn't 10 years old. It's hard to find a helmet that fits me. This XXXL is still a little small.

The pads along the jawline are a little too tight. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

@ the reference

Anyway, don't worry about the cheekpads, they will loosen up a bit.
Always better tight than loose.

That's a motto for life....

Scorpions are some of the tighter fitting helmets.
Have you tried HJC for a better fit?

Its usually impossible for me to try helmets. Most stores don't stock anything in XXXL. I had my choice narrowed down to the HJC IS-MAX or the EXO 900 and I went with the Scorpion because it had better reviews.
