    The BHSI is a US site, so not all the options will be available in the UK.

    Surprised the Decathlon ones don't fit. I'm 60cm and have this one

    Fits fine. It's out of stock but I can't imagine their other helmets will be differently sized

    Shape can be as important as size, I tried on loads before discovered Uvex Boss Race fit really well. Tried pretty much every other brand available including Kask, Giro etc. Specialized are too mushroomy for me!

    If true, that's a shame - I'd hoped that they'd enough supervision and monitoring to keep product safely. I'll quote this again in https://www.cyclechat.net/threads/the-cyclechat-helmet-debate-thread.187059/

    I can't check it over sufficiently for damage which could render it worse-than-useless - even the manuals say "damage may not be visible" (Giro) or "in the event of any impact or blow, do not use this helmet. There may be damage invisible to you, which may reduce the ability of the helmet to reduce the harmful effects of a blow to the head" (Specialized). Helmet users are effectively trusting the supply chain with their heads.

    Just ordered a specialized max xl from Evans following this post. I have a 61cm head so looking forward to having a decent looking helmet that fits properly for once. Thanks!

    This is NOT post about Helmet tests
    This is NOT a post about Helmet standards
    This is NOT a post to start a discussion on either subject

    It is a contribution to THIS thread as it is about fake helmets
