If your head shape is long oval this fits the bill better than most others. Its a good idea to measure your head shape with some calipers or something like that, you can make them out of cardboard or wood. The tip off to needing this helmet shape is that your forehead is squashed and branded by the pressure of an ill fitting too round helmet. This helmet also seems to have better airflow than previous Arai's I have had, I can feel a cool breeze across my barren scalp. Otherwise top shelf all around for materials, fit and finish.

I am very pleased with this helmet! I have used on the trails and roadways in Yosemite and the helmet did great. Helmet fit according to spec. Even on the freeway the helmet does well with air and noise.

Can't argue with ArI protection. Good fit, looks good, excellent protection. No issues with rattling peak, but then again I am riding a dual-purpose/enduro. Speed is not an issue. If you're going over 80, don't ride with enduro/off-road helmet.

The reviewer that complained about the cheek area being too tight clearly has not read the manual - this helmet has peel-away layers within the interior to custom fit your head. This is a great helmet with the single exception of wind whistling. No matter what configuration I use for the vents, I am assaulted by whistling that is clear despite using ear plugs. A minor gripe, but an honest review of an otherwise outstanding lid.

I have been wearing an aria helmet for over twenty years. I think it is the most comfortable helmet available.

This is,flat out,the best open face helmet on the market. I bought two. I got a racing helmet, and this ugly thing for street riding. Inside of two days,I realized that this is an absolutely superb helmet,in every way. Please seriously consider this product. It is flat out super. Ugly,silly looking and the best. If I can bury my ego,so can you. This is the one. Great protection,visibility,fit. Quality is worlds best.
