Hey guys/girls, I was wondering what kind of helmets you smaller guys wear? I'm 5'6 140lbs, so i'm pretty thin. The helmet I have now is an Arai Signet GT...I like it alot, but imo it looks kinda big and goofy for my body. Any other suggestions?

I like to wear the smallest helmet I can and the Arai Astral fits my head when the Signet and Quantum models from the same company don't. A little harder to find than other models, in my experience, but you might give it a try, since you apparently already like the Arai brand.

AGV makes their helmets in 2 shell sizes so you might fit the smaller. I have an AGV V-Flyer and like it.

I have a pin head....I can't wear hats and I have a hard time with helmets myself, always small or extra-small. I now have a small Shoei XSP2 that's great.

I think they use more than one shell size as well. That seems to be key, so they don't take a shell big enough for an XXL and fill it up with extra foam.

Arai makes about the smallest shell size of any helmet, doubtfull you will find anything that is smaller... possibly AGV if the shape is correct for your head

try looking in a mirror with an HJC if you think your head looks disproportionatly big now

a long neck can make your helmeted head look like a big bulb too. there's not much you can do about it-- you get the DNA your born with and it ain't changin.
