Need some real world advice on helmets for a big head
What's up guys? After taking a pretty hard fall last season, I looking to get a helmet for this upcoming season.
The only problem is I have a pretty big head. The measurements that I have taken vary from about 59.5cm to a little over 60cm. That's between 23 1/4 in to 23 5/8 in. Never really been a hat wearer, but from these measurements, looks like my size would be about a 7 1/2.
So with these measurements in mind, I have deduced that I will need a Large or Extra Large Helmet.
According to some specs I looked at from RED's helmets, they say that a Large fits heads between 59cm-61cm, but I wanted to see what you guys have heard or experienced.
Here are my questions:
1. What size helmet do you think I would need? Judging from RED's specs, what size would I need?
2. In addition, I don't want the helmet to sit too high on my head....it would look quite odd. What recommendations do you have to avoid this?
Any of you who have a similar head size, please give me your take on it. Thanks!
