Helmets for big noggins? 7 1/2"

wow, this topic is going to go south quickly. in all seriousness, looking for helmet that is safe and will fit plus sized head.

looked at SR TDUB, but i'm on the upper end of the size chart. any other bucket heads out there? if so, what are you wearing?

I have been through shred ready and grateful heads. Neither stayed put when I flipped. Head Trip makes the biggest helmet I have found. My head is narrow and long front to back and my weapon from them (with padding) fits great and has been river tested to make sure it stays put. I would call them and discuss what you need rather than looking at their website. I was going to order an XXL and the girl recommended one that was a size not listed on their website. She said the XXL would be too big.

Good company, made in USA. I've taken several nasty hits and mine is still good.

lol @ ouchita's reply to Apohis1620.

I will definitely check out the web sites and call both Head Trip and Sweet Rocker. Thank you for the information! Very much appreciated!!!

I have a 7.5" head too.

I've tried a Sweet fullface helmet and could get it on, but it gave me a headache after about 30 mins. Too snug. I had a WRSI too and it just kind of sat on top of my head, not comfy, nor proper safe fit. I have a SR Scrappy, and it fits, but doesn't hang over the ears, and the ratchet thing on the back comes loose...

I have a SR TDub now. Fits well and stays put. It's been roll and rock tested...

All in all the SR TDub was the largest/best fit. Also, SR helmets run a Tad large, so don't go from the fit guides alone.

Sweet Wanderer is what I wear. Probably the best thing you can do is just go to a store and try on a bunch of helmets to see what fits your head
