Bell Moto 8 Sizing?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I have some questions about the sizing on this helmet. I went to Cycle Gear the other day and tried on the Moto 9 in a large and a medium. The large feels good on my head, and the medium feels a little on the tight side. I don't have the funds to spend the $475 on the Moto 9 so I did some searching and found the Moto 8 on Bell's website for $250 with bag and extra visor, but I am unsure of which size I need. I don't want to screw up and spend $250 and get the wrong size and have to deal with sending it back. Going by Bell's sizing chart my head measures 22-3/4" which is on the tail end of the medium size, the large size picks up at 23-1/4". Bell says to have it in your mind to buy a helmet that feels too tight on your head, because it will break in and loosen up. So I'm leaning towards the medium. But just wanted to see if I could get some input on how much the helmet will loosen up as it breaks in. It's been a while since I needed to get a new helmet, so I don't quite remember.
