    Helmet for big-headed persons?

    I can't find a helmet that fits. My head's not THAT huge... I dunno what my hat size is, but it's about 24.5" around.

    I think the problem might be more the eliptical shape of my melon.

    Anyhow, what kind of helmet do you fellows find fits a big cranium?

    Giro in an XL seems to fit me and I have an unusually large head....I have a switchblade and a helios...And I really do have a large head, which once you admit it, people look at me in a different way..and laugh

    MY poor mother, she probably winces in pain on my birthday...

    If your hat size is more than about 7-5/8, you might need to try the Bell Kinghead helmet. You can do a search for it and you'll find quite a few online shops that sell it. I'm sure your local shop can order one. The kicker? It's only $30, so unlike most Big and Tall items that are crappy and charge a premium just for size, Bell can put your head, up to size 8-1/8, in a lid on the cheap.

    That is the largest helmet I'm aware of, though.
