My new Arai Quantam II

So yeah I got a new helmet. The only thing that sucks is I ordered a medium and as I was taking pictures to share with all of you I noticed they sent me a large. MOFO's. But here is the helmet anyway.

Have a nice looking lady tell you you're the best thing ever. Have her do it over and over. You're head will get bigger and then your helmet will fit.

forcedfreak, you are the best thing ever. You really are the best thing ever.

I just bought a Quantum II several weeks ago. Very comfortable and quiet.

holy **** it worked! Interestingly enough when I was trying them on, the medium with the cheek pads from the large fit me best. So that's what they said they would order me. The Large with the regular cheek pads was tighter on my head than the medium with the large cheek pads. figure that out.

Nice helmet dude. I've got the Quantum II Hacking and have been pretty happy with it. Also, the Arai helmets tend to fit people with an oval head shape which might have something to do with the pad issue.

I always send the wrong size anything to people in New Hampshire... go figure!

I am one of those guys with weird shape and odd size head so I have to wear a medium helmet with small size cheek pads. Helmet looks cool though, not to bling and not to bland

True Story, one of my partner swore that he was XL size when it came to helmets, all of his helmets had been XL (he had a bunch of them), he had been riding for a long time, we went to Daytona Week for the races, walked the Pits and passed by the Arai Booth... He wears a Medium now! Of course he didn't believe me when I told him prior to us going there but I am glad he listened to Brian.

I am not saying that this is your case but I know a lot of people who at this moment, are wearing the wrong size helmet and are blaming their not being able to enjoy riding bikes to the helmet, bike, wind noise or whatever... women are the worse when it comes to fitting themselves to new helmets.

My wife has a HUGE, erm, HEALTHY AMOUNT of HAIR and she also wears a medium. Of course she wanted an XL but, it was either the right size or not riding with me.

Not shietting you on this one. I have a buddy with a head so large, he has to order his baseball caps special. Even the adjustable ones don't have enough adjustment.

I honestly wish you wouldn't talk about RC90 like that. He really is a great guy.
