    LOL, I just measured my head and it is a hair over 26" or about an inch too big for the Simpson. At least according to their chart. Kind of bummed as I wanted a CF helmet

    I found Bell makes a helmet called the M.4 in 4xl. I did find a weight of 6 lb or about twice of what the CF helmets are. No CF weave! HJC now makes their CF with copper, red or blue coloring, they are cool.

    26"?? Maybe you should just wear the helmet box..
    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    pro-tip. You can take the snell rating sticker off of one helmet, put it on anything else and you will pass tech... just sayin

    Sure, if you're just interested in passing tech and not actually living in the event of head trauma, lol.

    I put the snell sticker on my Roof helmet that only has passed the european safety checks to get me through tech.

    But I only have a $5 head so I only need a $5 helmet
