Hi: I am asian and I am considering to purchase a new helmet. I came across Smith asian fit helmets on their website and was wondering if anyone can comment on the asian fit models? Specifically, does the "asian" fit really make a difference (in terms of fitting)?
I have a Giro helmet now and I realized it does not fit very well to my Asian head. It kind of "sit" on my head rather than in my head.
I also bought an asian fit Oakly prizm rose goggles recently online and it fits ok.
Problem with asian fit gear is, they are not stocked in the store. So I can't try them on before purchasing. Do I really want to purchase multiple sizes and models online (Smith Vantage, Compass, etc) and then return the ones that don't fit? I am not sure....
I live in Northern Virginia and I have asked local ski shops to see if they are willing to stock the asian fit gears, none of them bothered. So I guess try it on before I buy is not really an option.
any input you can share will be greatly appreciated!
