    Best deal on a Bell Sweep XC helmet?

    Anyone know of a place that has a real good deal on a Bell Sweep XC helmet in the red and white color? My current helmet is an older Giro Havoc (52-56 cm size) so I would assume I would need the Bell Sweep XC to be a small size. Cheapest so far I've seen is $120.00.

    Don't assume anything. Bell and Giro have slightly different shapes so even if you get the same circumference helmet it doesn't mean it will fit the same. Go try them on before you buy.

    +1. I was trying these helmets on in a store yesterday. Bell Medium fits my head shape perfectly. None of the Giros fit me at all.

    More than slightly IME. Most Giros and Bells have a totally different fit. Generally I wear a medium Bell and it fits like it was molded on my head.

    Most XL Giros pinch me front and back (too short) and I can slide my hands between head and helmet on the sides (WAY too wide).

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Bell Sweep XC

    It looks like Costco has the best price so i will try and get one from there or since I plan on ordering some stuff from Jenson's maybe I'll see if they will price match with Costco. I'll definitely go and try one on at a store first so I don't order the wrong size. Thanks for the help!

    Amen!

    Bell's fit me well, Giro's don't fit at all.

    I have a Sweep XC and it's by far the best helmet I have ever owned (all Bell)
