also, serious helmet designers include type of use
when considering say, visor opening shape and levels,
[shade eyes with flat hand sitting up normally, then
keep[ing hand in position, lean torso forward
notice top of view opening drops, obscuring vision..
just an eg of design differences, here intended for road racing
or riding a bike with low flat bars 'sports style'..
easy solution is to bend your neck upwards,,
which will result in discomfort or pain..
not to mention training a poor upright posture
encoueaging 'goose neck' or a 'widows hump'..
this comes under size and fit, personal head shape,
and intended or typical riding style..
things like replacable cheek pads and other linings
can redically change levels of fit and comfort..
ie, eg, people have different head shapes and sizes,
but also have different facial and jaw profiles etc..
ultimately it comes down to what you want
and can afford to pay for..
check out your insurance for helmet replacement..
mine [aami] includes replacement of the same of
closest helmet after a crash [they assume the helmet
took impact and is thus finished - having saved
your brain and face etc.
my nice shark r did its job, and aami replaced it
with the nearest helmet available, a shark r carbon,
a high end and very nice helmet..
