Sweet F/F Rocker 2015 helmet fit issue
So I just bought a brand new 2015 sweet full face rocker. I bought the M/L size, advertised as good for a size 7" to 7.75" head. My head is 7.125". Out of the box I slipped it on and was shocked at how tight it fit. The helmet came with a bunch of pads and since I'm on the lower end of the size range, fully expected to have to use most of them. I also checked to make sure the hand of God adjuster in the back was loosened all the way and it was still uncomfortably tight to the point I started getting a headache. I have a normal shaped head and the helmet was tightest above my ears, but snug everywhere else so it's not like it's tight on the sides but loose in the front and back of my head.
Just curious if anyone else has this issue? Before returning it and getting the next size up, I wonder if maybe the one I got is defective and another one in the same size would fit better. According to the numbers advertised, I should be swimming in the next helmet size up. Thanks for reading. Awesome helmet otherwise, super padding and construction.
