    MTB lid for a pin head :)

    As above - Im on the lookout for a decent MTB which doesn't look daft on my small head.

    Measuring a measly 53cm round ,Every lid ive tried just looks wrong.


    Can anyone recommend anything please for me to try?

    Thanks

    Looks wrong? or fits wrong? Because nobody cares how it looks.
    Grit, spit, and a whole lot of duct tape!

    Maybe check out Bern if you can, their sizes seem to run really small so maybe you'll find a good fit. Kind of cool looking too.

    I don't know about that. I don't care what yours looks like on you but I care a little bit how mine looks like on me. Not enough to forsake protection but I still didn't like to have my picture taken very much. I am just to ugly already. Just bought a new Bell Super that fits wonderfully and looks great. But I am still ugly. And yes I have considered a paper bag. Slim

    I feel your pain. Most helmets look like a giant mushroom on head. I have found UVEX and Catlike to be the only 2 brands that do not make my head look like a pinhead.

    Giro, Bell, Mavic, POC all look ridiculous on me.

    I have the same issue, and it seems that the Louis Garneau helmets fit me great... especially the Carve. I'm not sure what type of helmet you are looking for, but that's a great fitting helmet. I'm a size 50, just to give you an idea.

    I will give you an air of caution here. Many helmet companies make their helmets to a smaller size, but they all share a common shell size. For people with smaller heads, that means quite often the helmet can be adjusted to fit but the shell tends to move... which can cause many head/neck issues if one should fall. So, please in your search for helmets, please make sure that the helmet is snug ESPECIALLY the shell.
