View Full Version : Another GPA question:) Speed Air vs First Lady fit/sizing?

Yes, I am STILL looking for the perfect fitting helmet. It goes on and on. I tried on a Speed Air recently, and it felt a bit too set up on top of my head, but otherwise very comfortable. It was a 7 1/8, but was a bit too tight for me to fit all my hair up in it.

What I really want is a First Lady, but have no chance to try one on - has anyone tried both of them on - are they the same helmet inside, or do they fit/run differently? Same shape?

Thanks in advance!

I have only tried the Speed Air! After having one of the orginal GPA's when I was in the market for a new helmet I really wanted another GPA. Sigh......found out they only do oval head shapes now and I have a round head! I'm assuming the Lady is also an oval (although I'm not a fan of the way the helmet looks anyway)!

I know it's a bit....different:) But I'm very taken with the larger brim - I'm thinking no more freckle moustaches in summer. Also I think it will make me ride like Penelope Leprevost if I have one. For it's price, it had better.

I'm actually glad about the new shapes - my head IS more oval, and my current (old) Titium is about 2 szs too large on the sides just to fit my forehead correctly. It's ridiculous!

Reviving this because I'm curious, too.

The First lady didnt look right on me. The overside bill looked hilarious for some reason, but I DO love my Speed Air!

I'm bumping this up again bc I am REALLY hoping there's some tack/helmet junkies out there who know the answer to my question - I'm dying to buy a helmet that's a really good price right now, but need to know how it fits first, since it's non returnable - so any feedback would be brilliant!
