Scorpian EXO 900 Helmet too tight around the ears
I've got a new Scorpian Flip Helmet / Large, that seems to be a little too tight around my ears when I have on sunglasses and am thinking about trimming the foam inside the pads, inside of the ear area. I've contacted the company and they don't make a thinner cheek pad replacement. This particular helmet also has an inflatable pad around the collar that is also part of the cheek pad.
Anyone ever try to reduce the padding area? I'll probably have to slit the seam, pull out the padding, reduce it's thickness, reinsert and then sew it up. The entire cheek pad is removable so working with it shouldn't be too difficult. Just looking for other possible suggestions before I start to cut away. I've already hot soldered the foam around the ear area to fit in speakers so they are not sticking out and really do seem to fit well.
Just another thought, does anyone ride without some sort of glasses inside the helmet? I've always either worn sunglasses or at night clear safety glasses for protection, even with a full helmet and face shield. The Scorpion manufacture even suggested not wearing the glasses. The helmet has a sun visor. Seems from a safety point of view, even with a windshield and helmet visor, safety glasses would be prudent.
