I am having a hard time trying to get a new helmet. I'd get one locally but no one stocks anything decent.
I currently have a 2001 Giro E2 in size XL. It always felt good but some of the padding has come out and now seems a little big.
I bought a medium Bell Sweep XC a couple months ago based on the Bell sizing charts and it fit my head, however it sat too high and looked like a little beanie. This helmet also seemed really cheaply made compared to the Giro's I have seen.
Last week I bought a Giro Animas in size large. The helmet is made great and fits the circumference of my head but the thing is HUGE. It also feels like it weighs a lot and would put a lot of strain on my neck.
My question is, does anyone know how the old Giro sizing system compares to the new one? My 2001 XL E2 verses the new 2007 E2 and Animas. Also, has anyone tried on the E2 and the Animas? Does the E2 sit lower and not look as huge as the Animas?
