New helmet time. Size help?
I had to retire my 661 Fenix last year after a crash that ended my season. I've worn 661 helmets since I got into DH, found a brand that fit me and kept using them. However, I would like to try something new this year. I've been looking at the TLD D3 and POC Cortex MIPS - especially interesting due to the multi-impact rating.
Unfortunately, none of the local shops have either in stock in my size. I only have two brands to compare size to, 661 and my street helmet (Shoei). Speaking of sizing, I'm a bit strange: I wear a L 661 comfortably (58-60cm), XL Shoei on the street (60-62cm), and I know that a L D3 does not fit me. Other than the 661 helmets, none of the size Large helmets I've tried have ever fit me. Can anyone wearing either a D3 or POC compare the sizing to either of the helmets I have? I have about 2 weeks before the season really gets started so I have time to make one, maybe 2 returns in that time period.
It's difficult to choose a helmet without trying it on.
It seems like you have a system to try and return.
If it helps, I know a few people who found the POC lining to come loose. POC replaced the lining but it seems to be a common problem

The POC fits strangely to me. It pushed hard on my forehead, whereas the troy lee d2 felt perfect. I work for the company that purchased POC a year ago, and I can get them very cheap, but I still prefer to pay retail for a tld helmet. I think they are better built.

Yeah POC was terrible on me but it fitted just great on my buddy. You just have to try them all out....
