    Full face helmets?

    I ordered a 661 Pro Bravo Carbon in XL (without trying it on) which according to the 661 sizing chart should have fit my 61cm head perfectly. It was quite a bit too small, it didn't come down far enough over my chin as well as (because of?) being generally tight.

    I was able to get a refund so what brands/sizes should i be looking at? I don't have a massive watermelon head but its probably a bit longer than the average non-clyde.

    I've always been able to get motocross helmets to fit but would prefer a mtb specific one.

    Check out the Giro Remedy. It fits long heads quite well. I wear the large (also have a large Xen), and have an XL Troy Lee SE moto helmet, and most other helmets I wear XL-XXL.

    I'm not super long, so I found a Pryme Al would be my choice if I went to a FF. Of course, it would be an XL.

    It's hard to say what will fit your head. My brother has a 661 and I dont like the fit. I have a Giro Remedy and love it. I went to a LBS and tried several on then made my choice.

    tried the remedy- but doesnt fit for me. my cheeks are to big ;p

    Specialized deviant seems to be the only thing full face that works so far.

    havent tried the pryme yet but i heard good things about it.
    Let it flow, let yourself go, slow and low, that is the tempo.
