Re: Shoei vs Arai
Keep in mind that the internals will compress a little with time. My Shoei was a bit extra-snug when I picked it out but within a month of wearing it (actually only about 10 rides with it on) it started to loosen up just right.
Don't let prices fool you into believing that it is a "better" helmet. Great deals are nice, but if one fit better or gave you the warm fuzzies, I'd go with that one.
