Well I measured my head around the largest part and its 61.5... No idea what the normal is, but it was super-tight. I know they're meant to be tight, but work loose, but it gave me a headache that's still lingering after 3 hours. So... :huh:

Going into Basic after Nationals to look at a Giro they stock, 63-65, maybe that'll fit. Gutted though, the one I got had an awesome design.

Can't be that giant, I know quite a few people who only fit a XL size barely...

And my head is 59cm but I have to buy a 61-63cm helmet, if I get the 59-61cm helmet my noggin gets stuck... :paranoid:

My head often don't fit the biggest size helmets :(

But it's more bad shape than massive head, as some of the brands/models fit OK.

Also wiffy, I believe there's a helmet size what is something like 63-65. I've def seen bigger sizes than 62.

It does explain why I've been having such a hard time finding a helmet that fits my bum, though.

Yeah the only ones I could find that do 63-65 is giro and the new Troy Lee D3, so looks like i'm going for either, Ugly as heck, or expensive as hell.
