XXL BMX helmet???

Im looking for a helmet to fit my big head.... 25" or 63.5cm is the exact measurement. Ive found that most XL helmets are up to 62cm. Im looking for a BMX helmet just so i could use it for snowboarding too.

Can anyone help me out? Money is no object since i'll be using it all year round. Thanks.

The net is a very large place for little boys to stroll...

Call Jay Leno, and ask where he gets his.

You might just want to go to a snowboard or bike shop, and try some on. Some fit very differently on your head. I've tried a Pro-Tec Ace Dig for biking (pinched the sides of my head), Pro-Tec Mercenary for snowboarding (perfect fit, but heavy), and a RED Hi-Fi (perfect fit, and light). All of them were the same "size" as well.

And you're also aware that a bike helmet on the slopes is going to freeze your head? I wanted to do the exact same thing as you, but I didn't want to sacrafice warmth. Ended up buying a B2 bike, and Hi-Fi snow.

Try them on in person!!

i have this problem too, you want to look out for XL specific lids, not l/xl ones, which come with 2 sets of pads. protec definitely make an xl specific with a proper expanded polystyrine liner.
