    i got a giro savant for £38 i think from Ribble.

    I’d say that anyone with a super-swede really ought to go somewhere they can try a helmet on and make sure it fits before buying.

    Even if it costs a bit more than an online bargin.

    wot he said^

    I struggle to find helmets to fit. My recent Mavic purchase was a delightful surprise when I tried one on, but in this hot head-swelling weather even that is a bit tight and uncomfortable. I’d happily pay MORE to find one that fits than snoop out a bargain that might not.

    I need a new helmet and I’ve got a fat head (61cm)…

    61cm?

    does ‘elshalimo’ mean ‘child with tiny pin-head’?

    you should be fine with any helmet that comes in a ‘large’.

    (i’m just grumpy because i need a new helmet or 2, and with a 63cm head i struggle to find anything at all, let alone something that’s a ‘good deal’)

    Ignore this^

    It’s not just about head circumference but head shape. I’ve tried on dozens of helmets and 90% don’t fit because my “tiny pin head” is long and narrow. I find the largest sizes in so many ranges just press uncomfortably on my forehead but I can’t get them snug side to side.

    Personally I think helmets are THE most important thing to try before you buy if you know you have a “problem head”
