Which helmets are the largest? Help needed..!

Postby kitevan » Thu Feb 24, 2011 1:21 pm

I have decided that I want wear a helmet from now on. My head just won't fit the L size of the 3-4 brands I tried (by a small margin but it won't). Anybody had the same problem? Any solutions? (brands, modifications etc.) Any help appreciated greatly!
P.S. Same problem in the army - not suffering from hydrocephaly :)

For sure, the Pro Tech two face from NSI in Hood River, Oregon. Me got large noggin, even had to shave a little of the lining off with the dremel sander and fits perfect. This after trying almost every helmet out there. Good Luck.

If the Protech XL helmet doesn't fit, a company called Bern makes XXL and XXXL water helmets that are comfortable and nice quality.

Good riding,
