    Ok, so I have a big head. expecially, it's pretty long, so a normal helmet fits, but rides pretty high.

    Does any place have really larger-than-normal helmets? at one time, I calculated my hat size.. I could again if it would be any help.


    I should add that I think this is mostly a matter of appearance, and that I think that my current helmet would protect me fairly well.

    Giro Atlas.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    We sell that at our shop but I think it's called the Bell King Head.

    I have a 7 3/4 hat size. I ride in Giro helments. The Pnuemo and E2 fit me fine. It depends on if your head is round or oval. The Specialized helmets fit oval heads better.

    I have a big gourd. I had a King Head for a while but it wasn't comfortable. I second the Giro recommendation.

    I have a hard time finding a helmet that fits. I currently have a specialized S1 helmet XL. I think it still looks like an ice chest with the way it sits on my melon. I even had to custom order my cowboy hat.

    I've got a very large melon, and the large Bell X-Ray fits me great. The Bells seem to run really large. I wear an XXL Leedom ski helmet.
