I've been shopping for a Shoei Neotec II but its not fitting perfectly for my round head. The Neotec's in North America are for intermediate oval heads. I heard the helmets in Japan are round oval (more round than oval) vs intermediate oval. I realize the helmet is not DOT approved for the North American market. The helmets are JIS certified. From what I have seen, the test results are at par or exceeds DOT tests. I guess what it comes down to is, purchase the DOT version of the Shoei Neotec II which doesn't fit perfectly or I can purchase the non DOT Japanese version of the Shoei which will fit me better. I will also have it custom fitted leveraging the Shoei's Personal Fitting Service (aka PFS) --> https://www.shoei.com/stores/. Basically, the helmet will be fitted for my head shape. Shoei 's warranty is only valid for the country which the helmet is purchased. I can't seen anything going wrong with the helmet. Can anyone confirm the Shoei's in Japan are in fact round oval?
