Default XXL Helmets too small

does anyone know of a super big ski/snowboard helmet? I got a size 68cm+ head and need something to protect myself. I have heard that the only option may be to wear a motorcycle helmet, but I don't want to go that route just yet if I don't have too. So, any help out there?

I have tried Smith XL/XXL(up to 67cm) and they were almost comically small on my head. I have not tried any others but when they are not within 2-3cm, I haven't thought that it would worth trying. Even went to a store to see what was in stock.

So the question remains, is there a helmet that could fit me or should i be looking into a custom made helmet? I really don't feel that I am that unique that there would be no option off the shelf.

Smith and giro are the largest on the market. Im lucky they fit. I looked and tried on helmets for a couple YEARS to find a comfortable one. I was hoping bern xxl would fit based on specs for last years xxxl. Nope. You may have to go custom.

I have a giant dome. There are some wierd models that will fit super large regardless of what the mfg info may say. MMy bern xxl fits super snug.

Its hard cuz u gotta try shit on but then nobody carries the huge sizes and you then are ordering it and going off of printed info which may or may not be accurate to how it fits u or at all. For example I have an XL Ride helm that is very roomy, but Bern runs decidedly small and the supposedly 63cm or so of the XXL is snug as a bug.

You may have to do the ol scam of ordering 3 giant ones and sending a couple back. Sandbox maybe? Not the most protective but look roomy.

I have the same problem. I am bald and my xxl bern is snug. The Reds have more room in their larger sizes. Had one a few years back. Try them for sure
