Very Large Bicycle Helmet

I have tried them all out there. I have a very large head, about 26 inches. Have bought the biggest I could find, up to 64 cm., still too small. Any suggestions, it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Wow. What's your hat size? Mine is 7 5/8, and I tend to wedge myself into the larger Bell helmets. I have used some coarse sandpaper to resize the foam inside, too.

(FWIW: My dad wears an 8 1/8 hat. He always had to have custom baseball caps made when he was in Little League... long, long ago.)

I, too, have an extra large dome. I wear a Bell XLV. Goes up to 65 cm. Around $35 at Amazon.

Hat size is calculated as the diameter of the head assuming it is circular. So the OP's 26" head circumference, divided by pi, would be a hat size a just hair over 8 1/4. (pun intended)

Right around there, more like a 8 max. I added a little for wiggle room. Big head=big inte Myself not included. Thanks..

For reference, I wear a 7 3/4, and the XL Bern helmets were the only ones I could find that fit. I doubt it would work for an 8 1/4.
