Looking for a helmet but...

Greetings!

New guy here. I am looking for a helmet but the issue is with my melon. It's so big...it has its own gravity. And weather system.

My size is 8 3/8 (hat) or 66.5 cm or 25 3/8".

Giro and Bell are two of the manufacturers I looked at but they only go as high as 8 1/8.

I am willing to spend whatever cost necessary to protect my melon: do you guys have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Have you checked out Bern helmets? Their sizing goes up to XXXL

I second this recommendation. I have a big head as well, and fit very comfortably in my XXL Bern Brentwood.

Have you considered getting a smaller head?
