    Vigor Vamoose II sizing

    Hoping to buy a Vigor Vamoose II but am confused on sizings.

    shop says I should go a M, but the Vigor site says I am L or XL.

    My head is 60-61cm. I know I should trust the bike store (no Icant try one before buying), but was wondering what others with similar heads have gone for with the Vamoose?

    Cheers

    I live in Australia and as far as I can tell there is no distro here so I am relying on a US shop for help.

    I can't even find one of those helmets at wheelworld, jenson, beyondbikes, and speedgoat.

    I use the 661 ful bravo.

    Very very nice helmet...well ventilated and a lot of board members here like them too. Plus they are pretty cheap

    sizing

    i have been using my v-2 carbon for over a year and love it. the sizing may be a little small. i wear l flexfit caps and a m/l pro tec dirt lid and my vamoose is only a med. i would def reconsider buying a helmet w/o trying it on first though, i tried on giro, 661, and bell lids and none fit my head right.

    I have a Vamoose 2 and it is a size XS. I usually wear a small, so they run a little big as far as I can tell.

    I first ordered a small and it was too big. I'd go with the next size down (if you need a large, order a medium).

    But don't blame me if you get the wrong size! hahaha

    I told them my measurements over the phone and they sent me the perfect size. I think they sell lots of them so they know what fits. Nice helmets too.
