Shoei pressure point solution
I've owned quite a few shoei helmets and one arai. I tend to like the shoeis because the chin bar is lower. I've had a problem with pressure points on the top of my forehead right about the hair line. After about 2 hours it would be really uncomfortable to wear the helmet. This January I was at the IMS in DC and decided to replace my stolen X11. I spoke with the shoei rep and explained my problem with pressure points. This was his solution. I purchased a large X11 with a small head liner and of course cheek pads to fit. This has worked out great. I can wear the helmet hours at a time and have experienced no pain from pressure points. I don't know if this will work for everyone but it might be something to consider if you do have this problem.
