large motorcycle helmet for "oriental head"?
Last time I checked Cycle World Superstore in Scarborough, all the helmet there does not fit (or not fit well). 90% of helmets there have chin opening too small that can't snug my head in. The few xxxlarge sized helmet can put on, but rattles on my head once put on (top part too big). The store people told me that is because my head shape is "oriental head", which requires different helmet profile. Well, I am Chinese, 6'1 tall, with big head.
Where do you guys buy helmet? Preferably a place I can try on before buying. Of course I'd wait until COVID is over to do so. These days I don't touch anything outside without sanitization.
If looks like there are some unintended attention to the word "oriental head". So I looked up dictionary. It appears that it is not an offensive word when referring to rugs or massage. It carries the offensive meaning when used to describe a person.
For my head shape, I don't think it carries the offensive context. But rather an odd choice of word. However Asian is too large a group, I don't think Asian head shape is correct either. At least oriental is accurate about people from China/Japan.
