I tried on a large and it was extremly tight. I bought the extra large and it fits good just a tad loose at the top. The cheeks are nice and tight. Is there anything i can do?
I would say go for it. It is a very comfortable helmet.I read a review of the RF1000 and the guy is in the same boat as you (and me) where larges are generally tight and XL a bit loose. He got the RF-1000 Large and then bought the XL cheek pads. (the larger the pad size the smaller it actually is) and he said the fit was great. I am considering getting this helmet myself.
