AFX has told us that these are a typical North America oval fit, more similar to Shoei than Arai. In the fittings we have done this week, I feel that is correct. Recently I wore Bell, Zox, Airoh, Fox, all long ovals, and the AFX fits similar.

(fyi I wore Arai ONLY for 20 years, and put up with the forehead pressure...)

Note that the cheekpads can be changed on most helmets, and usually correct fit issues there. Arai gets this better than anyone, they do a great job.
