Good Helmet for a Big Head

by 8o8 finch@m   November 4, 2013  

Just bought a great new bike (Giant Revolt 1) to get fit, and will be riding on roads, I want to get a great Helmet, and here is my problem, I do have a huge head (64-65cms) I have a budget of around £60-80, and am wondering what to go for. Any ideas ?

Tried on a Catlike Whisper the other day. Felt like I could have picked up Sky Sports if I was facing in the right direction. Worth a try.

But then I only have a 56cm bonce...

I have a fairly large head and find Specialized helmets fit me great. But I think it's more down to the shape of your head, rather than just the size, so I'd recommend just going down to your LBS and trying a few on.

I've come to this party late but wanted to say that I too have a surprisingly large head (I'm fairly average in most other measurements) and I've been wearing a Giro Savant and it's an excellent fit. Good choice! Let's hope you never have to test its impact qualities.
