How do you like your helmet size: snug or loose?(5 posts)

How do you like your helmet size: snug or loose?youcancallmejoe

I am buying a Catlike helmet and the small fits up to 57cm. My melon is 57.3 cm using my giant caliper. I dunno if I should go one size larger. I am sure they understate the size since so many people I know mismeasure their noggin or might want to get dreadlocks in the middle of the season.

Now what color? Lampre blue or Euskaltel orange??

And I'll assume the 57.3cm is the perimeter size. How the heck did you get that from a caliper? Why not a tape measure?
Since you made it my decision: orange is also wrong.

In a fit of expediency, I neglected to specify orange headwear as the fashion faux pas. Now those're all the foreign words I know!
As loose as possible.Kristin

It's always better if they fall off during a crash.
