    Helmets for Large Noggins?

    Need a new helmet. +24" head measurement. Want a lid w/a visor. Supa' Bling factor not important. Use for trail riding not racing. Advice? Fuller coverage helmets cool with me but I don't need full face. Thanks!

    My 2003 Giro E2 is super-big. I have a large skull too, and this helmet is the first one I've ever come across that felt maybe too big.

    I've never been able to find a big enough Giro for my large head, but the large Bell helmets fit me pretty well.

    Giro Xen L is quite big... actually the only XC lid that fits my mellon.. I think it is up to 24,5"

    Have you tried on a Bell

    My fiance has a huge head too (when I write that, it makes her sound not too attractive, but she is - I promise). Anyway, we are always having trouble finding her hats and stuff.

    She tried on just about every Giro helmet under $100. None of them adjusted large enough. Then she tried on a Bell Influx, size L - it fit great and she likes it.
