And since this is a race helmet, it has a “race” fit. That means it’s very snug, and not super easy to pull on. But once it’s on it cradles my head perfectly. The brushed synthetic liner fabric is the same great stuff Shoei has always used, but now the comfort liner is modular. So if the helmet doesn’t fit you like it was custom-made for your head, you can swap out pads to tune the fit. The liner now has adjustable snaps, too, that allow you to rotate the liner forward within the lid. That effectively rotates the helmet up on your head for a claimed 4-degree increase in your upper field of view.
