Default smallest lowest profile half helmet

I am in the market for a new helmet. Bought a GMax55 and although design cool, has flip down visor, removable lining and very comfortable, it gives me the mushrrom effect BAD. i look like my head is top heavy! So i've been doing research trying to find the smallest and the most info i see points to ACC which has been recalled. So have been looking at 3 finialist Zox carbon kevlar old school shorty, Daytona carbon/ kevlar shorty, EXL carbon/kevlar shorty. EXL seems to be new on the seen claim to have smallest liner at 3/4 of an inch and about 70 bones cheaper so been leaning towards them. Went to the harley shop and tried on vega. they sat a lil lower around sides but high in middle. If anyone has any info on thesee helmets would be a huge help. thnx

I just got a "Nomad" half-helmet by Z1R, and I don't much care for it. (the Harley shop threw it in with the purchase of my new bike) It definitely suffers from the mushroom-effect you mentioned. In short, I'm in the same situation as you, and the EXL you mentioned looks like a good one. Are you considering non-DOT approved helmets? I've considered that idea, but find that the law already finds reasons to pull me over, and I'd hate to give them another!
