Anyone TOO long oval for a Signet?

Just curious, does anyone out there have such a long oval head that even signets don't do it? If so, what else has fit?

And for very long ovals, what other models do you recommend I try? I'm only 61cm when flaccid, but the Nolan X-lite XXL was still too small with some forehead pressure too. The M2r xxl was too small and round; the Zeus 508W XXXL was too small and round; I've never had a helmet fit. Shops in town don't carry even Arai's over XL, so can't try one on. Gotta order by internet, which is a major and expensive crapshoot and is why I'm looking for extra feedback in advance. Thanks!

Re: Arai Signet model numbers?

I cannot afford a new Arai but sometimes see one on sale somewhere, sometimes slightly used. I'm hesitant to buy them, though, because I don't understand the different model numbers. My Signet E fits PERFECTLY, the only helmet I've ever found to fit. But will a GT, or S, or other letter fit me too? My key concern is forehead room, as I have a protruding, round forehead. Is there anyone out there who can educate me on this? I haven't been able to get the info from Arai, and Arai dealers here are not helpful; they don't stock a wide variety of models or sizes either, and refuse to order them unless the customer pays top dollar cash up front for a helmet he has never even tried on.

Re: Arai Signet S visor removal mechanism

On my Signet S, as you look between the side cover plate and the visor, there is a bright red button to push; this requires a small tool like the butt of a plastic fork, and is easy to push. This releases the bottom catch of the side plate and makes the bottom of the side plate pop out slightly, and if the visor is down, the side plate then pulls straight off, very easily. Inspection of the visor holes and its base mechanism then makes it obvious that you must rotate the visor to the open position, and it pops off naturally. To replace the visor, you just do one side at a time, putting the visor on in the up position, rotating it shut, then pushing the side plate straight into place, which clicks in place very nicely. Then you repeat with the other side. Once you have instructions, it is easy to do.
