    I would try them on. I went to a LBS with all intentions of buying the 661 but after trying it on and the Fox Flux the Flux fit my head better and was more comfortable. You might not even like any of them and go for something different.

    I looked at all four and ended up with the Uvex XP100. It fit my head the best and I love how light it is!

    The Spec. helmets fit me better than others - I'd try on a bunch & see what suits you best. Friend just bought very upgraded helmet online & it doesn't fit him well - what a waste.

    Same here. I've got a UVEX Supersonic RS that weighs in at 275g with plenty of coverage and huge vent holes. I am sensitive to weight when it's on my head. I can't wear a helmet that isn't sub-300g without neck issues.
    Threading lightly and respectfully wherever I want....

    The one that fits, and not just the one that fits best. It is possible none of the four fits you.

    If a helmet does not fit your head, it does not protect well.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I love the fox
    It was the only one that fit my huge head but it was also the most expensive

    Fox doesn't fit my head well. So far, I've had luck with Giro and Specialized helmet on fit.
