Road cycling helmets for big heads?

    I've got a big head.

    I currently use an old Boardman MTB Helmet which fits fine but is a little worn. I recently popped into Decathlon to spend a voucher I have and none of the helmets would fit my massive head. The large ones go up to 61cms I believe.

    Any recommendations? Happy to spend up to £100.

    I like my Specialized Echelon helmet, the size large fits 61-63cm heads. RRP is £50 but I'm sure there are deals to be had.
    There is a black one here reduced to £40

    I've got a Specialized Max XL which fits my big head nicely and doesn't look like a mushroom perched on top either. Evans currently have them at £30.

    It replaced a Bell XLV that did the job but didn't look too good.

    An eBay helmet? Because you don't think they can be damaged by improper handling or storage, or because you think mikeflyn373 and Hermes is as reliable at storage and handling as Evans's or Decathlon?

    Decathlon, who use a column of boxed helmets to make goalposts for the Sunday late shift warehouse footy game? I don't expect any shop staff on or close to minimum wage to treat the merch with kid gloves behind the scenes.

    You can check it over when it arrives for any sign of damage, if your not happy you can return it for a full refund.I've had hundreds of items off Ebay and nothing to date has arrived damaged.
