I have the same problem with lots of different brands of helmets, I hate onyx, tipperary, club rider, most "normal: brands over here

So I went out and spent $120 on a dublin silverline and omg it is the most comfy helmet I have ever had, so much so that I went back and got another one to use as a spare, or just incase mine gets broken (likely to happen with the way I land on the ground -_- )
-Here, $120 is expensive for a helmet if you don't compete GP level, most people only spend up to half that on their around home helmets.

Here in Aus helmets are sized by centimetres. I'm anywhere from 56 to 60 depending on the shape, brand, and padding style.

My new helmet is a really nice, really pricey one (new show helmet, picked up for 1/3 of the price because it'll be 5 years past manufacture in Feb). It's a 59. My old helmet is a 58, and the helmet I've been showing in is a touch on the big side at 57. I borrowed a friend's 56 for one show and it fit perfect.

When my new helmet turns 5 it will be retired and destroyed, and replaced with a brand new version of the same... assuming I can find the $300 it will cost to buy a younger one!!
