I have a more expensive head than I thought.
The Vector 2 appeared to be the correct helmet for me, but I discovered that my head is the more expensive 'long oval'. I had to exchange for the Signet Q. Kyle was a tremendous help during the process. Helmet City has excellent service.

Arai Vector 2
I had a hard time finding a helmet that fit my head. After doing some research I have a long oval profile. The Vector 2 is made to fit long oval heads. So the helmet fits correctly. The Vector 2 has very simple to operate vents. When open do a great job. The upper vents on the face shield prevent fogging. I took the cheek pads and removed the 5mm of padding that Arai precuts on the helmet to make a bit more room around my jaw and cheeks. I also don't have a problem with wind coming thru the helmet. That is because the Helmet fits me correctly. WEBBIKEWORLD has a excellent sizing chart. On what type of helmets fit your head. I thought that the size of your head is the only thing that matters. The shape is is also very important. What I did is take two pieces of cardboard ind hold them up against my head ear to ear and them took a measurement. I did the same thing front to back. Take the two numbers and divide the small one by the larger one. This is an aspect ratio. The closer the aspect ration is to 1.00 the rounder your head is. And I drew up an ellipse on paper and cut that out, it fit my head great. I now have my exact head size and shape. That is the secret to fitting a helmet. I would like to thank Kyle at Helmetcity for working with me during this process.

Based on advice from my friends, I purchased the Vec 2. I don't really pay attention to which helmets are the best or what is the most popular. But, after hearing about it from my buddies, there was no question that I needed one of my own. The Vector 2 fits me perfectly and is snug in just the right spots. Having a helmet that fits properly sure does make me feel safer out on the road!
