I've tried several different half helmets and this one fits me best. The shape over the ears for me is better because it doesn't sit on the ears but over them. The vents would be better if they opened up more in the inside of the helmet and they would put a couple channels up and over the head. It's a great summer helmet.

Helmet Sizing Information.
To achieve proper helmet fitment, begin by finding your head circumference size using the method described below. Remember that the helmet sizing you choose should fit around the crown of your head comfortably with no pressure points. The cheekpads should fit firmly around your face. Once your chin strap is fastened, grab the chin bar of the helmet and move it side to side. Your cheeks should move with the helmet, which should not slide across your face. Different thickness cheekpads can be purchased to obtain the perfect fit.
Head Measurement Instructions.
Wrap flexible tape measure around your head approximately on inch above eyebrows and ears. Use this measurement (in either inches or centimeters) to find your helmet size in the chart below.
6 5/8-6 3/4
7 1/8-7 1/4

Great price fast service. Would recommend to any rider.
First off the size is spot on, a long with jafrum customer service. This helmet fits my head perfectly and is way lighter then my last helmet. It is very comfortable to ride with it for hours. Would recommend to a friend!
I have tried a number of half helmets over the years but this one is by far the best. Jafrum is the finest company on line I have ever dealt with. They allowed me to purchase two size helmets and return one or both if I was not happy. Here in the Socialist State of NY if you walk out the door of a shop with a helmet and turnaround and walk back in FORGET IT you own the helmet. Jafrum has all of my cycle accessory business from now on.
My current XTS was part of a recall and was promtly replaced by Vega. this was my second XTS helmet, the 1st was damaged in a crash and did its job well protecting me from ANY INJURY IN A 40 MPH crash, where my helmet impacted with the roadway and I sustained NO injury..the shell was heavily road rashed but stayed intact and saved my scalp . light weight and comfortable, sits low without "mushroom" look, vented so it stays cooler although I did have to put a drop on glue on slide to stay open.comfortable lining is washable and odor resistant...would buy over again!!
This is our second XTS and they both have the style, comfort and the protection that we are looking for. Sizing pretty much runs true to the chart.
I've been riding motorcycles since 1972. My state required a helmet when I first started riding and I've gotten used to wearing one. I have an oval shaped head but have never been able to find a helmet that fit the shape of my head. Thus I've worn an uncomfortable helmet for all those years...until now. I wanted a half helmet for summer use and did some shopping around to see what was out there. After reading some of the reviews on the Vega XTS I decided to take a chance and bought one...actually two...one for my girlfriend also. Am I glad I did! This helmet is long oval and fits great. Sure wish they'd had them back in 1972! This was my first purchase from Jafrum, but won't be my last. They were prompt with my order and I couldn't believe how quickly my order arrived. Great job Jafrum!!
