Helmet recommendations for a slighly round head

Hello Barf.

Looking for recommendations for a helmet for a person with a slightly round head.

In the past I have owned a Scorpion EXO400 and a Suomy Apex which fit great and enjoyed both helmets.

According to a sales rep from cyclegear, the only helmet that they have that fits the 'slightly round' is the Arai quantum x.

I did some research on webbikeworld and most of their reviews of slightly round helmets are outdated (also possible that my research skill is poor)

Interested to learn what the barf community recommends.

Thank you for your time.

I thought all heads were at least "slightly round".

(I know what you mean...) I have a rounder noggin and I like Arai and Shoei. I have a Shoei right now, but I had several Arai's before. I guess I'm lucky--I've never had trouble finding a comfortable helmet. My husband has a more oval head and he struggles with a pressure point on his forehead.

Yes- The sales rep at cycle gear states that the Arai Quantum X is the best bet and that there isn't much helmets out there aside from the Quantum in terms of the 'roundness'

I spoke with a rep from Revzilla and says that the AGV K3 could be an option as well but I haven't tried it just yet. The price point is much lower compared to the Arai but I know nothing about AGV.

The Arai is comfortable but would like to see if there are other options out there.

Thank you everyone for your inputs and advice.
