I’m an Eventer and looking into buying a new helmet. Yesterday I went to Dover and tried on the GPA Speed Air and the Samshield Shadow Matte. They did not have the GPA in a 7, they only had a 7 1/8 so they ordered a 7 from a Dover nearby for me to try on. I liked the fit of both the GPA and the Samshield. The Samshield was very snug and did not move at all (which is great), however I felt like it was really perched up on the top of my head. It also felt very top heavy. I currently have an IRH so I’m used to a solid and somewhat heavier helmet but the Samshield just felt too heavy. It fit correctly but I’m just worried that it’s too heavy. There was also a lot of pressure on my forehead but I read it was supposed to alleviate pressure on the forehead… As the padding wears down will it sink down on my head more? Or will it always feel really bulky? If it stays pretty bulky then I’ll probably buy the GPA. Does anyone have any experience with the GPA Speed Air? If so do you like it?
