I has no problems with fit on the C3, but one of our guys internally is a pronounced long oval (Profile to a T) and he could not swing the C3 - not enough clearance front to back.

If you ever make it through Philly come try one on! I have never seen your head, but you never know.


Hmm, interesting you mention the Shark RSR. I tried that in between the X-11 and Profile. It was a perfect fit for around 30-45min., then I would get this piercing pain right on top of my head in a perfect circle. It felt like someone put a marble on top of my head, and crammed my head into the helmet. Take helmet off and pain went away. I was bummed. That Shark was the nicest helmet I've ever seen. Ever heard of that problem?
