Goatpants what have you gone too??
I have an arai shaped head and struggled to find anything else that is comfy.

Do like the look of the x-lites.

I've tried loads of helmets. (Stop sniggering)

Sharks good but I could get the one I tried off whilst still strapped to my head. Shoei don't generally fit. AGV ok, especially with the latest lining but Arai are miles better in comfort and fit. Performed well in an accident years ago too whereas I'm sure my AGVs wide chin guard contributed to my busted collar bone.

A good sharp rating is a confidence boost, but what ever helmet you get number one on the spec is make sure it fits. BrandName & colours optional
