Helmet

I’ve been out of the country for a couple of weeks, and I hadn’t heard from the helmet guy, so I dropped in today to see if they were in… and they were!

Last time I was there I tried on a small (the only size they had), and was surprised how comfortable it was, even if it was tight. Tried a medium and a large today, and was just about to settle for the large (which would have sucked, since they only had them in black), when the ever helpful sales guy suggested that I try the medium again.

It turned out that if you give the helmet a good shove from the back, the pressure goes from the front. Tried the medium for a while in the shop, and was really happy with the fit.

Tried some goggles, and though the one they had will fit at a pinch they don’t quite touch around my nose. Turns out that they sit just as well without the strap! I tried my old Spy goggles when I got home, and they’re a great fit. The foam touches and seals to my face, without applying any real pressure at all.

Really happy with the fit… now let’s hope it lives up to expectations in terms of wind noise and isolation.
