but yea, i suggest you dont do what i do, go to a shop and try then all on.
I also wear a Smith Holt (with Skullcandy from the factory) and I have a big head. the RED cut into my forehead, the K2 felt funny on the top and the Giro XL was more like a medium

The big thing is find one that fits and is comfortable. A helmet that isn't will likely end up being used for loose change, and that doesn't protect you much. I've used mine twice now, and both times it would have been much worse. Kudos for thinking with (and of) your brain!

01NST5 I've got a K2 Clutch (with factory installed Baseline Audio Communication System (ACS)) that I love, I have had several people in the lift line asking where I got it so they could get one too.

it's got input (w/ cables) for audio (mp3 players and what not) and a portable radio (FRS type)

there is a microphone boom (small, unobtrusive) and a PTT button over the left ear and a mute button over the right ear for cutting out the mp3 audio.

indoblazin If you're looking for light & low-profile check out the RED Skycap II. I wear it and I like it's shape better than other REDs. Looks less like a space helmet and more like an old skool skate helmet.

Minger I second trying them.

I just bought a Medium Pro-Tech B2 snow from Sierra online...should have tried it because its fine until the top of my head. If it pushes down a little from the top, the sides of the top of my head hurt...can't really return it because it was only $15, so its off to my little brother =]

agreed. i went to several shops trying on helmets, bern, red, smith, borri, and none of them fit my head right. finally i found the pro-tec ace freecarve and it fits perfectly. helmets are like boots, try on a bunch and figure out which brand fits you. brand and styling are secondary to fit, especially with a helmet.

Personally I have a ProTec helmet with audio build in (even mute and volume buttons are on the outside of the earbuds and very easy to handle). The sound is a blast and I`m very satisfied of this helmet.
