    Need a helmet for my giant head

    Recently ordered the 661 Dirt Lid Helmet from Price Point during the sale they have going on currently. Turns out, one size doesn't exactly fit all. Any other bobble head shaped people out there that can recommend a helmet that'll protect my ginormous melon?

    Preferably the same kind of style. Not into the areo look.



    Thanks!

    Just measured: 62cm or 24.25in

    I've read Bern helmets don't fit big heads well. Shame


    Edit: Looking at the Giro Flak and Fox Transition. Can any big heads verify that the sizes they list are accurate? None of the LBS near me carry these/have them in stock, so online is my only/best option.

    My fellow large headed brother. I can't remember the model exactly but I picked up a Giro. Whatever they have around $40 was the one I went with. Only helmet that I tried on that felt comfortable to me.

    I have a large head as well, can't wear baseball caps because none of them fit. I have a Trek helmet, can't remember the model, but it fits me fine.

    Really? I was dead set on getting the flux, but when I put it on it was the most uncomfortable helmet I tried on. Wish it would have worked for my head too.

    I ended up ordering the 2011 Fox Transition, they claim to fit up to 25 1/8 inch noggins. Should be here in a day or two.

    I too have a big head(for my size 5'4" w/ 58/59cm head)
    I tried on a Bell XLV and it actually fit pretty good! Would have bought one.... but my LBS were sold out....
    Tell us hot the Fox Fits, Its been a pain in on my head trying to find anything that fits my head.

    Well to my surprise the helmet was waiting for me at my door when I got home from work. It looks a lot better than the 661 did (got the matte black color), and actually fits really well with the thinner pads provided. My search is over!

    not sure of the actual measurement but i wear a size 8 hat, its up there in the 24-25" range. i'll have to look at the fox flux.

    EDIT: after checking out the fox website i'll look into the transition instead. XC helmets don't do anything for me.

    I just wanted to post again now that I've worn the helmet out on a couple rides. Fit is fantastic, and it looks good too. Really recommend it for those who are cranially gifted like me.
