Apologies in advance for repetition of previous info or discussion, but have been reading prior posts as best I can to find info on the best way or ideas to try on helmets. My wife wants a new helmet (full face). She began to find her current Bell version was not too comfy on longer rides (1 hour+) last year. Problem is, she thinks she has some unconventional "fitting" issues, 1) too tight around the ears (side to side), 2) it also feels better without the cheek pads in, but without the pads, it is too loose. Fine, I understand it needs to fit well, but where do you go to try on these helmets to have any idea where to begin. Its a helmet and I'll get her whatever she wants price wise, but before we start spending money and returning the discards, are there any known retail locations that stock a decent variety of better helmets? We've been to several dealers, but usually very disappointing selection. Would appreciate anyone sharing a positive experience or guidance. FWIW, nearest metro area is Chicago. Many thanks!
