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.
Just ribbin' you. My gourd is so fat, it's the last thing out of bed in the morning.
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.
