    661 Full-face helmet sizing

    I'm considering ordering the 661 full-comp helmet from pricepoint as its 50 bones and I'm looking at moving to a place that has a LOT more rocks than where I live now. I've heard some stuff about their helmets being sized small (which is perfect for me. I'm 6'3" but my head only measures 21" around). Anyone here have firsthand experience with 'em?

    (and I know that there's always a worry about fit when you mailorder safety gear. If it sucks I won't ride with it, thanks mom.)

    They run very small!

    I'm 145lbs, 5'8", skinny and I got XL.

    Yikes! Its alright tho, just was looking around and saw that jenson has the bell bellistic for $29 and the size they have supposedly is the right one. At that price I'll prolly order it just fer grins. Thanks man, that likely saved me some time and $

    My head is 23" right above my ears, so you probably want XLarge or Large.

    I would get a Large. I'm 6'3", buck-80, and I wear the 661 Full Bravo Carbon in Large, and it fits like a glove. When I first got it, I thought it was a little big on me cuz there was so much room; turns out it just breathes incredibly well!!! Go for it and feel confident in your purchase

    i had a 661 full comp size M, and now I have a Giro Mad Max II size S (the M is huge because it comes only S and M).

    my suggestion is that you'll go to a dealer and try it before ordering..
