Small form variations across helmet models eventually have an impact on fit. For this reason, it is crucial to try on a helmet before purchasing it.

By putting on the helmet and moving your head to the left, right, up, and down while securely holding the helmet in your hands, you can determine whether it fits your head appropriately.

We advise you to try a smaller size if the helmet allows your head to move about too freely. If you have any localized pressure points, wear a different kind of helmet or select one that is one size larger. View our sizing chart down below!

It takes more than simply knowing your size and preferred paint job to choose a Shoei helmet. It involves investing in a helmet that effectively shields your head from impacts.

The helmet is the most effective and significant safety accessory a rider can purchase. In the case of an accident, no other item of motorcycle equipment offers more protection or a greater return on investment.

This explains why it is crucial to avoid choosing a motorbike helmet based solely on its cost or look. The best-fitting, highest-rated helmet that a rider can afford should be purchased.

Suppose you’ve chosen the best kind of helmet for your needs. It’s time to locate one that works now. The first thing you must do is gauge the size of your head. To accomplish this, start measuring your head with a tape measured 2 cm above your eyebrows and work your way around.

When you have this measurement, you can match it up with one of the side tables offered by the leading motorcycle helmet manufacturers. It will help you determine the general size of the helmet you require. You must still consider your head shape.

Typically, there are three different types of head shapes:

  • intermediate oval
  • long oval
  • round oval

Ask a buddy to snap an overhead shot so you can see what shape your head is. The size and shape of your head are essential considerations when choosing a motorcycle helmet.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I know my helmet size in Shoei?

Measure the diameter of your head with a tape measure about an inch above your eyebrows. Measure both in centimeters and inches because different-size charts will utilize different lengths.

If you’re in between sizes, compare this measurement to the size chart and always try the smaller helmet first.

2. What size are medium Shoei helmets?

The Shoei medium helmet size has a 7 1/8 – 7 ¼ hat size or 22 1/2 – 22 ⅞ hat size in inches.

3. What size are large Shoei helmets?

The Shoei medium helmet size has 7 3/8 – 7 ½ hat size or 23 1/4 – 23 ⅝ hat size in inches.

4. How do I know if my Shoei helmet is too big?

Head shakes from side to side. When moving your head forcefully from side to side, a helmet fits adequately if your skin moves.

The helmet is too large if it moves, but your face does not.

5. How much do Shoei helmets break in?

Wearing a motorcycle helmet is the safest method to break it in. The easiest technique to allow the inner padding to develop on your face is to wear your helmet for 15 to 20 hours daily.

As you use your motorcycle helmet, the padding breaks down, and the deteriorating foam conforms to the shape of your face.

6. How tight is too tight for a helmet?

Industry experts advise that a helmet fits snugly yet pleasantly over the wearer’s whole head without creating pressure points.

During the ride, there shouldn’t be any up-and-down or side-to-side motion. While it shouldn’t be too loose, it also shouldn’t be too tight.

7. How can I tell whether the helmet on my motorbike is too small?

You should inspect the area around your head’s crown before putting on a helmet for the first time. There shouldn’t be any excess space available.

Two fingers can fit there, but that is too much space. That is too tiny if it works too tightly to make you uncomfortable.

8. How safe are Shoei helmets?

Shoei is one of the safest helmet companies available, thanks to two of its most recent models receiving the full five stars.
