No sorry. I have the Icon; Death From Above helmet, I love it and it's the only helmet that fits me so perfectly. I love the red one...

The Icons are the best looking helmets style wise, and they generally pass their helmets through European and Japanese test's. i tried one on though and it just didn't work with my head shape.

Yeah, I learned long ago that Shoei helmets don't fit my head. Arai work and so to JFKs.

The thing about Arai is that they make different helmets for different head shapes. So if one model doesn't fit you right, another one probably will. I wear a Profile/Signet series, for long oval heads. The Quantum/RXVII series are actually painful for me to wear.

According to my local dealer/reps the deal with helmets is the manufactures claim they pass certain ratings (DOT, Snell, etc.), this is no proof they would actually pass. Several different helmets (out of thousands) are tested annually to see if they would in fact pass the ratings they claim... some pass, some don't. His recommendation was to invest in good, well know reputable company.

Exactly. Round ones don't fit me but the semi-oval's do really well.

I've got the raw carbon that is just clear coated over. Love it. But I'm used to riding dirt helmets on supermoto's. I attached a link to the one I have. I Love it
