Default "Narrow" fit helmets

Does any now of a good helmet for narrow heads? Possibly even boarder line egg shape? My head circumference is 22.25". So I am just over a small and into the low end of a medium. I have a s19 now and the fit from front to back is perfect but side to side not so much. I can almost fit my pinky finger between my temple and the helmet and theres not much in the way of shops around here to go in and try one a bunch of different ones.

narrow box helmets are the bauer 4500
more round heads would be the 8k/11k, ccm v08
if you have a tiny head, most bauer helmets work too

I have a narrow, egg head and the Bauer 4500 in Medium works well for me. I can fit into a small in this helmet too (actually used one for ball hockey a few a few times) but the Medium is most comfortable for me regularly for ice/inline.

I'll have to try the 4500. I tried on my buddys s7 and it fit me way better then my s19. Is there a huge difference between the s7 and s9? They both have the VN foam and same shell, so they should fit pretty much the same right?

I'd say the Bauer 4500 or even the 9500 I found narrow.
