    get down to some shops and try as many as you can on.

    as not everyones head is the same.

    This, although Met might be a good place to start- I've quite a big head and get on better with them than some others.
  • I have a head like a melon. Fox Flux and Giro Hex in large both fit well. No other makes did.
    The Hex was very comfortable, so went for that.
    Found that every helmet felt different - even doffeeent ranges by the same manufacturer. As already said, try them all on. (and then buy cheaper online :wink: )
