There are also some manufacturers that have available interchangeable inner padding sections for a more custom fit. Shoei for sure and possibly Nolan and a couple more. But then you're dealing with some pretty serious high end products. I'm lucky that way, I'm pretty Joe Average and can wear just about any large size lid, any XL jacket, regular size 10.5 boots, large gloves...sure makes shopping for gear easy. Well except for when my Parts Canada rep send me a size medium brain bucket; but it didn't take but a minute to figure out what was wrong there.
Best way is to go to a store and try some helmets on there and pay close attention to what may become a serious pressure/discomfort point. 15 minutes in the store with the helmet on should do it. Explain your problem with a staffer and they should be more than willing to assist you. If not, run.
grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!
