Im between a S (55-56 cm) and a M (57-58 cm) helmet; my head measures at about 56.5 cm. the Qwest fits well but the S was very tight. I was worried I'd get a headache but after 10 minutes, no pain points or headache but just all around tight pressure around the head. Medium was snug but clearly looser than the S.

Really two questions, 1. Any advice/insight on which size to go with? and related 2. Any idea how much the shoei pads break in?

Maybe the small will fit better after breaking in.

correctly fitting helmet

Hi Animal, I just did a motorcycle crash helmet fitting guide on how to work out how snug a helmet should be. Sounds like the M would be about right - but try the twist test on the link - how far can you twist the helmet when you're wearing it. The helmet will loosen slightly after you've worn it a while tho.
