    AM helmet for tiny head

    i posted in apparel and protection but not having alot of luck with replies

    ive been looking at a few different helmets, fox flux, 661 recon, urge AM, giro feature, i wear a size 6 7/8 baseball cap, and tried on my buddies fox flux S/M and with the ratchet all the way in it was still big on me

    anyone else out there have a small head, what helmets are sized smaller than others? maybe i should go to a youth LG lol?

    I wear the same size hat you do, and I found the Specialized Vice (small) is a great fit with room to spare for smaller heads. I have also tried the Flux XS/S helmet, but it felt weird on me.

    The Vice is an exceptional helmet with great coverage. My only complaint is the lack of adjustable visor. The helmet doesn't make you look like a bobble head either.

    i'm in the same boat - been looking at the vice, flux and urge enduro-matic, anyone know how the S/M urge fits for the small head crowd?

    i like the sixsixone recon but it only comes in s/m l/xl just like the flux and the s/m is too big on me ratcheted all the way in, the giro feature comes in s m or l but idk how hot that helmet is going to be

    you can see by the pics its much smaller than the small flux
