helmet + goggle fit concern

Hi guys.

so getting right to the point, I have the Oakley Crowbar (asian fit), and recently got a Red Hifi 2 helmet, large size. The helmet fits me nicely, obviously, which is why i bought it. But after trying it on with my goggles, it makes the goggles really tight on my face around the eyes. I loosened it all the way to the max. (for those who own crowbars, the two adjustment straps are touching each other in the end which is the largest setting).

I don't know whether the helmet is just big for this particular brand of goggles? Does anyone know a solution to this? are there different size straps I can buy or should i just invest in another pair of goggles or helmet?

thanks!

My only suggestion would be to tighten the goggles and wear them around your head, and then put the helmet on over top of them. This way they will fit fine, but you lose the ability to lift them up onto your helmet when you want to take them off.

Question: Did you try the C-bars on prior to your helmet fitting process. My asian fit crowbars were tight on my eyes too even without a helmet. got the regular style (Danny Kass sig series) and gave the asians too my friend who has a smaller face. Might just be your gogs and not the helmet gog combo

i tried wearing it under my helmet but it doesn't work well at all. it just pushes the goggles down my face and nose.

the goggles fit perfect when i used them with just a beanie. I admit i didn't try them on with my helmet otherwise i prob wouldn't have bought the helmet.

Now I guess my choice is either buy a new helmet or a new pair of goggles.

Check and see if they make a helmet strap for the crowbars, I know they make one for the a-frames that pull the sides out slightly more to try and fix that problem with some helmets.
