What size helmet?

So fitted hats I wear are 58.7cm

According to most scales, Medium is 55.5-59cm and Large is 59-62.5cm.

Will I be good with a Medium, and it wont be too tight on my head? Or should I go with a large, just incase?

Don't buy a helmet without trying it on. If you don't have the opportunity to try a helmet (no local shops around, etc..) then buy something with adjustable dial in the back of the helmet. They work pretty well.

Especially since you are at the upper and lower of each size. Fit is so different from brand to brand model to model.
