Went to check on a Bell Voryex Attack attack helmet and I tried on a medium. It was snug. But I have one concern ... Measuring my head circumference I am a 21.5in/54.5 cm which places me in a xs/sm. can a person fit a larger size helmet even if the number state otherwise?

I've found trying them in first, no matter what brand, works best to see how fit is. The helmet size differ a little bit to actual size. I tried on many of helmets to find one that was in my price range and fit my ugly mug and had the features I wanted. There is a chain store called Cycle Gear that I found that has a store close to where I live and they have a 7 day return policy on helmets. I haven't looked at the full details of the return policy but as long as it in the exact shape as it left the store.look them up on the web.

Different helmets fit differently. The vortex fits differently that the star that fits differently to the RS-1 (all from Bell helmets). They all fit differently to the Arai's...etc. Best thing to do is find the brand you want, find a dealer and try them on. If you don't have any dealer near you, do a little research on the brand you want (ie. - vortex=egg head, star = more round head, RS-1 = oval head) and try an online store with a good return policy like sportbiketrackgear.com. where you can keep switching helmets until you find the right one. the only downside is shipping on returns...

There is a place in roc that sells just helmets. I'll get you the name of it in a few. They have a lot to look at compared to Holink. From what I hear the staff really knows there stuff and they are not out to just sell you a helmet so they can move on to the next person.

As always ask if you have questions.

Adesio.. I would be very interested in the name of that helmet store in Rochester. I'm about 2-1/2 hours away in Canada. Selection around here is poor (I find). I will be in the market for a new bucket at the end of this season. Thx

and you will be making a left turn at 2nd light,

LEFT onto 21 south, we are 1&1/2 miles on your left...

Coming from the Canandaigua Thruway--- follow 332 straight down

For my point of view n experience you should get exact size for your head for example my head diameter is aboit 58.5cm = size M (56-58) so i took size M for the helmet from Arai Monster RX7 RR5. Its so comfort during riding n large view. Anyway goodluck bro to find right size helmet for you
