My helmet has been compromised in a fall; thus I am getting a new one.
I have to resort to buying online because there are only 3 tack shops where I live, and they have run out of my size!
My current helmet is a size 7 1/4 (59cm) and I have always felt it is kinda loose when I first put it on. BUT after an hour of riding, it feels like a tight rubber band around my head.. so much so that it pinches my head.I wasn't measured properly for it when I first bought it. The shop assistant just took one she felt should fit me, and when I tried it on; she said it was ok.
Anyway, now I am on my own.
I measured my head circumference yesterday. The measurement is actually 56cm. I understand I should be giving myself some allowance for heat expansion. But should I be going for size 7 1/4 or 7 if its a helmet which is supposed to have good ventilation?
This is the one I am thinking of buying.
