A big helmet for a big head
« on: May 20, 2008, 07:41:39 am »
I'm from PE and finding a helmet that fits my brain capacity proves to be close to mission impossilbe  O0
I've tried the VR1 XXL, but it is just to small.

Does anybody know where I can get hold of a bigger helmet?

Is there not a online shop where I can order a 7XL Helmet somwhere?

I found a 62-63 System 5 at Lifestyle in Johannesburg.

I also have trouble finding a big enough helmet. Try Aria. You can phone their distributor, KMSA Distributirs on 011 448 1112, and ask who in your area is currently stocking XXL. Worked for me.

Good luck.

p.s. I took the Tour X (pronounced tour cross by the way) and love it. Even with my big head.

Bought a Shoei Hornet XXL.  Bigger than the other makes.. (And cheaper than the Arai X)
