Less massive aggressive-style helmets

So I picked up a 661 Dirt Lid last time I ordered some gear. It was cheap, I figured I could use an alternative helmet. It looks cool, it fits well, but when it's on me it looks friggin ridiculous. I'm 5'7" and fairly small overall, and I look like a first grader with one of those huge kids helmets on when I'm wearing it. I feel like I should be going into battle or something.

And so I now find myself wanting a helmet of a similar style (that is dirt jump/aggressive skate style), only slightly less massive so as to avoid looking like a total fool in the thing. Any suggestions?

The dirt lid is free to anyone in Chicago who wants to come get it.

Look at Go helmets and checkout the Catlike helmet. It is not large will not give you a mushroom head look. They fit more like a regular cap.

Giro E2/Xen have the more aggressive styling.
