Dang... the Giro Atlas is supposedly "Universal Fit XL", but it only goes up to 63cm. Is it too tight all around, or in just one particular spot?
I've modified helmets with coarse sandpaper (don't tell the CPSC) to fit my head- my hat size is 7 5/8, but it's all forward to back. A little sanding in the forehead area and they usually fit fine.
I'm glad I don't have to find a helmet for my dad- his hat size is 8 1/8. That's off the charts just about everywhere:
