Size Chart for the Vega Stealth Phantom 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.
Comment: After a ton of research on lightweight FF or modular helmets, I settled on this one. I wear an XS, which is about three pound, a good half-pound less than most modulars. It has an oval inner shape which fits me perfectly. It was comfortable from the first time I put it on, and stays comfortable through hours of riding. I like the extra vertical length in the view port; I don't have to rotate my head down to read my gauges, just flick my eyes down.
The jaw piece is easy to take on and off, though you CAN'T do it while riding. The air channels are grea - I can feel them drawing heat away from my head as soon as I start moving.
I got the red and it is gorgeous. I get a lot of comments on the color and style.
The only minor problem is the sun shade. When I use the lever to flick it down, the upper rim of it often gets caught on the rim of the eyeport, making it impossible to use the lever to put it back up again. I have to raise the face shield a couple notches, and push in on the sun shield to free it. However once i figured out the problem, it's become second nature to deal with it with one hand. It's not enough to make me send the helmet back.
For comfort, fit, light weight, and functionality, I don't think you can beat the price.
Vega Stealth Phantom Helmet Review
Comment: I LOVE this Lid!!! Been riding 50+ years, year-round and this is beyond doubt the most comfortable helmet I have ever worn. The venting is great for cold or wet weather as the air flow clears the faceplate as soon as you start moving without freezing your nose or chin off. In the rain, you don't get the water blow-up from below into your eyes, or the dripping from the upper edge of the shield present in so many others. But the best point is the oval shape. Why it took so long for the OEMs to figure out we do not have "Bowl" heads I don't know, but VEGA got it right with this one. There are not the pressure points present in every other helmet I have worn so the long ride comfort factor is off the charts. And, with the added sunshield, removable chinbar and elongated shield viewing depth Vega has produced the ultimate unit for any ride length or weather condition.
In short, I would reccommend this helmet to any rider who is serious about comfort and features
