    Helmet options for giant heads

    I have a large melon. most large sized helmets just kind of perch on top of my head so im not sure they're providing the best protection. can somebody recommend a manufacturer that makes good x-large helmets?

    I can think of a couple friends offhand who have huge heads. One wears a TLD A-1 and the other wears a POC hardshell (not a Trabec), but I'm not sure which model.

    I have a large melon and I wear the Kali Chakra plus.. I wear a m/l and I am a 2x in everything else. Still looks a bit goofy but what can you expect when you have Frankenstein head...

    I have a pretty large dome and really like the way Lazer helmets fit me. Their helmets seem to be a lot more low-profile than some of the other larger helmet options.
