    Gigantic head helmet

    I have a seriously oversized mutant head.
    Most of the XL helmets out there still dont fit, and even those adjustable thangs dont do it for me. Any suggestions on 'Mutant Lids'?

    Fior me anyways. Giro makes a XL that seems to be a bit larger than others.

    Specifically, the Giro Atlas. I guess this year they call it the Atlas II. Try to find one at your LBS you can try on.

    Hmmm, wonder if they still have that movie prop Rick Moranis wore...

    ...in Spaceballs as Darth Helmet?

    Serously though, I have the same problem in reverse, though not as bad since the new helmets have neat gizmos that take up any slack. I do find that Giro is one of the best at accomodating extremely small sizes, I would think they would be equally as good at larger ones.

    Good luck, and may the Schwartz be with you!

    I recently read somewhere that Bell makes some oversize helmets.

    Vote for Bell

    i have a fairly large nugget, and the Bell helmet that i have had for about 6 years fits perfect. i bought a louis garneau, i ordered it without fitting because no one locally had one -- this is the best helmet for looks and function, but not for big heads. i can wear it, but after a half hour or so it gets painful. a little while ago i put on the old bell again for a road ride and fell in love!


    try a bell, i am looking for a new one!

    OK, I mentioned the Giro Atlas II first, but I guess I should also say that before that I also had a Bell (I think the model name was Omega) that worked alright. Helmets are an individual thing, so regardless of the recommendations you get here, be sure to try one on before you buy.
