    Need helmet help, full face fit

    I ordered a remedy to size, the crown fit well, but the cheek pads were about 1/2" away. The helmet moved easily and would have been displaced in a crash.

    So, I order a medium, crown fit like a vice, the cheek pads touched, but the ill fit meant it could be displaced as well.

    Standard measuring I am 23.5",
    I need a full face that you really have to squeeze by the cheek pads.

    Any one know of such a fit?
    No one around here carries full face so I am stuck guessing.
    Thanks in advance.

    i tried on several helmets and the remedy fit me best overall. however, i had the same fit issue, going to thicker pads did the trick. you can order thicker pads to fit, check out universal cycles, lots to choose from.

    Thanks, interesting, but I dont think the extra 5mm will do it.

    When you grab and tug on your helmet does it roll back above your forehead?

    there's a little play, but not like with the stock cheek pads. you must be reading the fit guide that came with your helmet, lol. i had a similar question earlier this summer after reading through that guide, which eventually led me to universal. its too bad you can't try on other sizes/brands. i probably tried 6 or 7 different helmets before going with giro. good luck!
