MX helmets seem to be made for oval heads so I can't seem to find a comfortable helmet for my big round noggin. Anyone have any suggestions on MX helmets for round heads? Thanks

I have a giant round head and have been in shoei’s for 20 years.

Not sure if its the same for their mx helmets, but my shoei rf1200 was pretty round until it conformed to my head.

I've never worn them but heard that Arai are pretty round. Might want to try one of those.

Arais are round on the outside, but not on the inside. I have pretty long oval head and the VX Pro fits me better than any helmet around.
Try getting a Japanese-spec helmet from a vendor overseas. Arai and Shoei both make their shells in different shapes for domestic release compared to the US/EU market. I bet a lot of other brands do, too.


Braaapin' aint easy.

My 6d has been really comfy and I’m cursed with a big round melon.

Arai VX-Pro3 was pretty round, but the 4 is more oval.

Scorpion VX-R70 is more round, and quite light. It is a nice helmet.

There is an old saying, you either have an Arai or a shoei head. Ie round or oval
