    Big'ol Head - Helmet Reco?

    I have a 60 cm crown, meaning my head is friggin' big. My helmet experiences have pivoted between uncomfortable and hilarious. I lost my last one during a hazy bar-jaunt through Koreatown.

    I've tried reshaping my head like this: but the darn thing just swole' up more.

    I would appreciate helmet recommendations from other large-headed peeps who've found some headgear that doesn't look ridiculous.

    depends on the shape your head really, i have a massive noggin like yours and i've always had luck with bell helmets because my head i big and round like a globe. giros tend to be a little longer and flatter.

    anyways, a bell sweep seems to work fine for me. even the metro, while a bit eggy-looking is comfy enough.

    i have a small head but sized up to a medium because of the shape of the hex. giros fit more ovalized heads better.

    Weird, I've had the exact opposite experience. My head is isn't as round as it is long, and Giros helmets didn't work for me at all. Bells, on the other hand, did me right. Now I have a Catlike Sakana that is shaped for a big round head and I wish I had bought another Bell instead. It looks cool, but I'd rather have a better fit.
