    Mavic Plasma SLR?

    Looking to get a new helmet and competitive cyclist has Mavic's on sale for half off. Anyone have an opinion of the Plasma SLR? I've got a big noggin, and the size charts claim it fits to 64cm (although some reviews say it runs small). So, any opinions would be appreciated.

    I have a big head too and ended up selling a medium( i got a smoking deal on it), it didnt get close to fitting. They look really good on the head though. My hat size 7 3/4 which equals 61.8109 cm

    Tried one on yesterday and as noted above they do look good on. I have a roundish 56cm circumference head and a Medium Plasma SLR fits very well. The one downside i noted was that it is dang heavy compared to similar priced offerings but the build quality is top notch.

    Yeah, Mavic has weird sizing for the helmet. The medium was too small and the large too big. There seemed to also be a noticeable weight difference between the two sizes. However, I found the look, venting, and quality to be high quality. The pads in the helmet were also the best that I have encountered.
