I just adjusted the thumb-wheel in the back. If it's still too tight, you might need to go up a size..

If it fits too tight front and back but not on the sides then it's not the right shape helmet for you. Different makers use different shell/foam shapes so what might not work on this helmet might be different on another brand. I went thru the same thing with my full faces and finally figured out which one fits best.

Here is a good resource:

In thinking that too. I have a bell full face which fits great, but this is just not doing it for me. Funny thing is I tried one one in the shop which fit great. I had to order one in the color I wanted and when it arrived it was too tight. Maybe I should go back and buy the floor model.
