If it wasn't so expensive I'd write it off as a lesson learned and wouldn't be bitching. I just expected a lot more for the $, and particularly when Schuberth admitted they've had multiple complaints about this exact issue and as far as I know haven't addressed it.
The local BMW dealer had an open house/demo ride last weekend, and the Schuberth truck was there with loaner helmets for anyone who wanted to wear one during the demo ride. I thought that was a great idea, because one could be worn long enough to spot any fit problem. I won't buy a helmet unless I can put it on and wear it long enough to see any problems.
