Shark?
Good helmets, fit more like a Shoei than anything else IMO.
Some of my customers say they fit real well, while others can't seem to get a good fit.
It's all in the shape of your head; if you have a more rounded head, in my experience, they fit well.

Oval to long oval heads seem to do better in Arai and Suomy, while more rounded heads fit Shoei or Shark better, although Arai offers some models aimed at round heads as well.

KBC, HJC, and Scorpion fit most profiles because the interior tends not to be as "snug" fitting, so you may experience a little "lift" at higher speeds, but they're still good helmets, especially for the price.

Your best bet is to determine what shape head you have, and then try on several brands and models to find out which fits the best.

After that, decide on graphics you like and the price range you want to spend.

My 2 cents, YMMV.

Thanks for the info Patrick. I got more of a round head....I think. I had that "lift" problem with my KBC also when I was at high speeds. That $hit if friggin annoying. I'll swing by the shop and try one of your "Sharks" on next time I'm in your area, and hopefully ya have my size. I usually wear a small in most helmets.

pay attention to shell materials in your price range as well. . .a $200 Shark is a poly shell while a $200 Scorpion is fiberglass. You will usually get a lighter yet stronger helmet when you get outside of the Polycarbonate realm. Just my 2 cents as usual. JET
