Get the larger size, not the smaller size. Going to send it back for the next size up. On the other hand, this is a very well made helmet with one of the smallest profiles I've seen in a legitimate DOT lid. I can't wait to get the right size and get back on the road.
I purchased this to protect my head while riding a lawnmower and while trimming bushes... because it protects the four holes in my skull from a concussion operation.
It fits perfectly as ordered and came promptly; but, I wish it were a little lighter for the role of which I am using it.
Very happy with the product. Fits fine & is well constructed. Eliminated wind lift & works well with either my goggles or glasses.
Great helmet. I sized my helmet according to Jafrum's recommendations and found my measurement to be on the cusp of two sizes. I chose poorly. Get the larger size, not the smaller size.

Good quality for the price, Lots of padding. Returned it cause it gave me a mushroom head.
I love my skid lid! Comfortable, with as little mushroom effect. Great lid at a great price!
Best Motorcycle Helmet Comment: I have bought several of these type helmets and this one even if it were to cost more, beat all hands down. Strap is positioned so you do not hear wind noise. It is the best fitting most comfortable. Highly recommend.
I might be a bit biased, moving from a state that did not have a helmet law, to one that does. In general, the only time I have worn a helmet was on very cold days, and then it was a full face. This helmet meets the legal requirements, which is what I was shooting for. I do not find it particularly comfortable or stylish. The chin strap is a little uncomfortable. But, again, I'm used to not having to wear one. The helmet I purchased is one size smaller than what I measured, and the fit is fine. I was hoping to have too tight of a fit and "adjust" the foam accordingly. This is a DOT helmet, so the profile is going to be 1.5 to 2.0 inches greater than the spherical radius of your head. Bottom line: it's a helmet, and it's legal
Fit is perfect and color is an exact match to our new (Black Denim) Street Glide. Good quality helmet.
Exactly what we expected! couldnt be more happier!
Helmet is sturdy and comfortable. Holds tight to ur head without choking you like other helmets. Great buy
Good price and pretty fast shipping. As for the helmet itself, it's what I was looking for. My old helmet sat way to high. This one sits down nicely on my grape and has yet to cause any discomfort. My wife rides her own bike and, after riding behind me, stated it had a slimmer profile. I no longer have to look comical in order to truly experience the road.
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband. He was thrilled and couldn't wait to ride with it. He said it felt light and didn't move in the wind. I plan to order me one too. Great value also!
Great price. Bought one for my wife and I. Great quality.will be nice to ride into states with helmet laws.
I ordered my normal size but it was too tight on the sides of my head. Fit my wife perfectly. Nice helmet but I recommend you to order a size larger than normal. I just ordered another one for me. Great price!
Just got the new helmet fits great, can't wait until summer to try it out. Thanks
Unconventional use for this helmet. I used it (after painting it like a watermelon) for a go-cart race. Rave reviews. Super comfy. Trust the sizing. Runs true.
Pretty much what I expected. A little tight. But I like it more than the one I paid more than double for a my favorite motorcycle dealership. It's a little less mushroomy, and I took out the inner lining, so it would come down on my head a bit and not sit up so high.
I purchased a skid lid flat black helmet and very pleased with my purchase. It is lite weight and fits perfect. I would recommend anyone looking for a helmet to try Jafrum first.
