Many companies have different sizing systems.
Personally I have to try one on before laying down the debit card.
People will chime in about 60 dollar helmet, 60 dollar head and such,
but the main thing is that two hard heads are better than one.
I got a very much nice DOT rated ATV full face helmet at Tractor Supply.
Those things may not be an Arai or Shoei, but it's designed to bounce off
a rock and save an atv dude's brain and that's fine enough for me.
I have a cereal bowl, 3/4, and the facer.
With the Raider brand I bought last year, a youth XL fit my small-ish skull
perfectly. The adult small was too small. This is why I won't order one off
the webbernet. Not advocating a box store helmet, but they also have to follow
NHSTD standards. Snug but comfortable padding and a solid shell are gonna save
your noggin' probably as well as the one's costing multiple hundreds of dollars.
Snaps on the strap mean it's a novelty, not DOT. Get one with D-rings that can't
come apart before ya bounce off of something.
I've broken two shells in my life, the worst injury ever was a busted, fat lip.
The styro inside did it's job perfectly.
