I like the inner shields that are coming in helmets but I wear glasses, any idea if they will interfere?

Depends on the size of your glasses. Big honkin' lenses or wide frames might interfere - but then, you'll have trouble gettin' those glasses on under a helmet in the first place.

On the EXO I tried on - my biggest problem was getting the earpiece back-alongside my head. I've got Marchon frames that use this tiny titanium wire for the earpiece, and the liner and padding interfered with it properly "seating" behind my ear. Even with the cheekpads deflated.

Also, I didn't have the near-$450 they were asking for the helmet at the time I tried it on.

They can have my Arai when they pry it from my cold, dead.....

I tried one on at the IMS, and it's a nice hat, but it doesn't fit my ARAI noggin.

Neither does the EXO-400 or the 700. They don't make a "long-oval" headform, yet.
