I've got a weird, large, mutant shaped head, and a lot of hair. Another issue is that if I stick my chin out, it rubs on the chin bar, which is bad, I fear smashing my teeth out if I ever crash and hit my chin. I'm looking for input on which helmets are long ovals, are an inverted "U" shape (I think my hair pulls the helmet back a lot) or have a pretty good gap for the chin bar, have swapable cheekpads, and come in size XXL. I've never found a good resource for info on helmet shapes beside Arai, (and this site) and not many shops stock all styles in XXL so it's really hard to try them on. So far the best option looks like the Arai Profile. I was told that the RF-1000 was a long oval helmet, but after some digging, some reviews found it to be round. Ugh.(Edited because I did some digging around and got some new info)
