Well, it's time for a new helmet and I am having problems finding one. My head measures a little over 25.5" and I need a 3XL.

I'm looking for a 3XL in a 3/4 helmet w/ visor, DOT minimum and hopefully SNELL.

I have a HJC AC-3 in XXL which is too small. Bad purchase decision. It would have been a good purchase decision if I could get it in an XXXL.

Anyway, looking all around, it seems nigh impossible to get a helmet for a fat head like mine. The HJC and Shoei models I am looking at only go to XXL (along w/ all the others I am looking at).

Any recommendations for helmets that meet my needs (3/4, flip down visor, minimum DOT or SNELL, size XXXL) ????

Have you checked into custom fiberglass autobody fabricators?

I have a 23"... went to www.carbonfiberhelmets.com not sure if they have the 3/4. I was just into making my head look smaller. They told me that they do custom work as well... might be worth a look see.

Good luck

Carbonfiberhelmets did not have a 3/4.

Limited choices for those of us who are above average on the sizing charts!

Scorpion just came out with a 3/4 style helmet (Exo-200).
http://www.scorpionusa.com/

You may want to contact them, or find a dealer that carries their product and see if their 2XL will fit your melon, if I remember, they tend to run a little large.

I've got their full face EXO-700, and love it...I'm thinking about picking one of these up myself (but in large, matte black).

Might call the Helmet Shop in Daytona and ask for their recommendation. They've got a pretty knowledgeable staff. I've bought five helmets from them.
