    Default Helmets for the larger skulled rider

    hi,
    so I'm trying to buy a new helmet as the BigW one I have is not going to cut it any more. Only problem is I am having trouble finding one to fit. Have tried on a few in the L/XL size but most end around 62, need something a bit bigger, 64+. Any ideas on who makes a larger sized helmet and where to get them.

    Try stuff on as there is more to size than just size.
    But being a bit Easter Island myself, Fox is the go.

    Ditto what Indica says, some shapes work some don't. Are you after a full face? Cause I have a XL Specialized lid that is massive, much bigger than my TLD.

    My TLD is the only full face I could find that would fit. It's a D2 and its long front to back.
    For moto I manage to get my melon into a Fox V3 ok.
