Wide helmet

So I'm looking to buy my 1st helmet and need some help. I have a fairly wide head(I'm asian). What brands are good for wide heads?

I've heard Giro. How is Boeri? I've also heard that ProTec runs long and narrow so that probably won't work for me. How is RED and Bern?

Thanks!

I've got more of a round dome and have a RED Skycap so I would suggest you try on a RED product.

I've got a pretty big head, both literally and figuratively , and RED was the only brand I had much luck with. My helmet is actually a little too wide so I agree with the post above, RED may be a good place to start.
