Helmet vs. Dreadlocks

it may seem funny or strange but i have pretty huge dreads and no helmet on this world fits my head.

is there a solution for this?

i thought about buying a cheap helmet and then making a whole on the back of the helmet, trough which i would pull trough my hair. it would certainly reduce the protective effect of the helmet, but i guess it's better than nothing. it's the tech i use with my hats, because like helmets, no hat on this planet fits my head.

any help from other rastas?

well i'm not a rasta, but i had dreads for 5 years. wore a L helmet till i cut them, now i wear a S, lol.

i wouldn't suggest fabricating your helmet (although the thought crossed my mind back then too), i think you're just gonna have to deal with not having a helmet big enough for your head...or cut your dreads. and we all know what the answer to that is!

maybe wrap 'em up & make your own little helmet...they're very shock absorbing!

Hey, I'm with you OP. I've had locks for about 9 years.

So aside from the stupid remarks about shaving heads, and nair, any other suggestions?

I had the same problem with bike helmets.

I noticed that only a few companies make XL size helmets, but that's the ticket really. I've tried on Bern and Smith, but the only XL helmets they make aren't what I'm looking for and are still a little tight. You could try getting a helmet with a removable insulating liner. Locks are pretty insulating in themselves, so, no need for added.

It's really compounded by the fact that a lot of resorts require helmets in the upper portions of the mountains.

Anyone with any real knowledge, not just half-witted attempts at humor?
