HouseMuzik Rule of thumb with Berns: always go a size bigger than your typical helmet sizing. Kinda stinks, especially for people with large heads like me. I'm typically an XL.. but in Berns I'm likely a XXL and that even might be small :/

Does the Hardhat adjust and is their room in there if necessary? I plan to wear a thin head wrap.

I have a 59cm head.

According to their sizing chart:

Quote:
Size (cm)
XS (52-53.5)
S (53.5-55.5)
M (55.5-57?
L (57-58)
XL (59-60.5)
XXL (60.5-62)
XXL (62-63.5)
I'm at the lowest end of the XL. So an XL should work well.

Veccster New to helmets but I'm also eyeing up Berns. At a local shop today, I tried on both large and XL of several brands. In all brands but Bern, large was a perfect fit. In the Bern's, I fit an XL. I guess they run a tad bit bigger.

I'm ordering online and getting an XL. Worst case scenerio, I can wear a slighly thicker head wrap if it's too big. Can't wear a helmet that's too small at all.

ev13wt So your scared of some snow on the road?

Just admit you are lazy. 30 minute ride to support your local shop... Jeez, kids these days.

Think about it, you could wear the helmet on the way back -you'd be much safer then dude. :P

didn't mean half hour as a long drive i just meant that it's a solid distance that in combination with a snowstorm is going to make me not want to make the trip. thanks for the help to those who actually gave me good info

181 I wear a 7 3/8 and by Bern Macon large is pretty damn snug. Large for sure.
