Where are you shopping at? Have you tried other places that are better educated?

There is a way to test fit your head shape, I'll look for it.

I went to 2 dealerships here in jersey. I'm trying to avoid cycle gear.
I'm going to try Revzilla next. I'm going to call them and ask what they have on hand to see if it's worth the trip. I'd imagine they are better educated there then at the dealers.

Maybe she has that famous political internet Zika virus? Could be why so hard to shop for. I understand the head shrinks with the process. Maybe she has the Bettlejuice strain?

My stupid joke aside, hope she finds the one she likes that's a nice fit.

The folks at revzilla should know their stuff. That would be my suggestion at this point.

You need to find a size AND shell shape that fits her head.

That's just it. the size isn't the issue, it's finding something that she says "this is totally comfortable and fits right."

So she may not get the "this is totally comfortable" right off the bat. Especially if it is her first helmet since the cheek pads will squeeze her face more than she is probably used too. But it shouldn't be painful either. Those of us that are used to it know what to look for in a new helmet. In fact I tried on the X-14 yesterday for about 30 minutes and it was like being in a snug protective cocoon. It was amazing, but my cheeks were super squished and most newer riders would have thought I am nuts probably.

This might be a helpful read for the fitting process:

Motorcycle Helmet Fitment 101 - RevZilla

Just have her focus on the top and how that feels since that has the least break in. Cheek Pads will break in through use.

Totally comfortable is so hard especially with a new lid. It's should be light (snug) at first the liner does break in and get more comfy. Really just have to make sure it doesn't hit any pressure points causing hot spots.

We are going to take a trip here one day. I read through the link. None of that was mentioned at the other places.
