Giro Helmet Sizing, please help

I'm going to order a Giro Semi online and noticed that Giro's sizing chart was a little different than other manufacturers.

I'm wondering if I need a Med or a Large. I wear a 7 3/8 baseball cap, but when I looked up the centimeters for that it was right in between the med and large, 59cm.

Can anyone who has a similar hat size as me let me know if they have a giro and what size works best for them? No lbs in town still carries this helmet and the closest place that has giro is kinda far

id probably guess large for me just b/c thats what i would get in most manufactuers but Giro has different centimeter measurments

i appreciate any help. thanks

Giro Mountain Helmets
Measurement Size
20" - 21 3/4" or 51-55cm Small
21 3/4" - 23 1/4" or 55-59cm Medium
23 1/4" - 24 3/4" or 59-63cm Large

Go to you local bike shop. Put on a helmet. Ask how big is it. Find One That Fits. Then Order!

Good point. For example, giro doesn't fit me in any way. I am left with the generic netti or Tld.
