    Big Head. Any Helmet suggestions?

    I didnt know where else to put this. Im 15 so I will probably sitll be growing a bit, and I have looked all over Albuquerque bike shops for helmets as well as sporting shops, and all of them are to small. I pretty much have a big weird shaped head, Im sure other people have had my problem before, because none of the Larges and most XL helmets fit. A guy at Bike World told me about this site and told me that you guys may be able to help me out. I dont need a full face, just a cap. One helmet that nearly did fit was the Specialized Deuce. Any recomendations? Special orders ? Thanks guys

    Check out the Vigor Vamoose II. I ordered an XL 661, but it was too small for my large melon. Tried on the Vigor (in size L) and it fit well. Can't beat the price for their Carbon model either

    For DH/FR I use a Specialized Hucker size XL, bigger than big. I have not tried the Vigor yet, but have heard good things also. I have a Bell X-ray for my XC lid, also pretty large.

    Good luck,

    Evan

    For an open-face lid, check out the Bell X-Ray if your head is round or the Giro Xen if your head is oval. Spendy, but some of the only helmets that fit big heads.
