Looks sweet! The X-803 Ultra Carbon, in high gloss black carbon fiber is on my short list for the future.

I had a similar fitment issue when I just changed from using 3 Arai Quantum/Corsairs over the years to a HJC RPHA 11 Pro. Half of reviews say the RPHA 11 Pro runs a little small....but half reviews say it’s true fit.

The Arais I had were all 58cm mediums and fit well, so I got the 58cm medium HJC as well and it was TIGHT. I wore it around the house for 20 minutes and got so clautrophobic I had to rip it off. My cheeks physically hurt and & I had a small headache for a few minutes. Tried it for 20 minutes again the next day and when I couldn’t take the cheek/facial discomfort anymore I gladly ripped it off again. Decided this could get dangerous if I went on a ride and had issues.....so I bought some smaller cheek pads to make it a “Large” helmet. That worked, love the RPHA 11 Pro...especially that I got it for $360.

The HJC is a bargain....I don’t really want to pay $700-800-900 for a helmet again.
