Full Face Helmet for Big Headed People

So my head is too big to fit in a Sweet, SR, or WRSI full face helmet and I feel like I probably need one. Anybody have ideas or know where I can get a custom made full face?

I can't believe a sweet rocker L/XL won't fit. I've got a huge noggin and use one. I did have to sand the foam down just a bit in one spot but it wasn't enough to worry me.

I have a huge noggin and a Sweet Strutter that fits well, do the Rockers have a similar fit?

You should look at the old classics from FNA, like the StormTrooper...

Try Shred Ready Carbon deluxe

Hey

The shred ready carbon deluxe version of their full face helmet fits significantly larger than the plastic version... worth a try at least.

Or you can add a face cage to a lot of full coverage helmets, not quite as good as the chin bar from the factory, but better protection than without.

Please post a picture of your enormous head next to a normal size person, so we can get an idea of just what we are dealing with.

In college, I used to stand in the back of group photos at the bar for better scaling.

I second the photo of your melon to see what we are working with. Maybe a football helmet?

UM lacrosse club team was on the Lochsa a month ago, wearing their Lacrosse helmets. They look like they'd be great full-face helmets.



They can be had in the $100-120 range.

Hockey helmet?
