Helmets have strict requirements and tight regulations for retention, penetration and impact protection in the event of a crash. However, to properly protect your noggin, they must fit well. Since every helmet is different, it’s vital to measure your head to make sure you get the right size for extra-large motorcycle helmets.
Use a soft or cloth tape measure and measure horizontally around your head starting about one-inch above the eyebrows. Repeat the process several times for accuracy, then check helmet sizing chart. If you’re in between two sizes, order the smaller of the two.
These helmets are available in a range of sizes. The features and shape ensure they can accommodate oversized heads.
