Fat Head helmet ... finally!

I'm a fat head and have always had problems getting a helmet that fits.

I stopped in the Wing Ding here in Des Moines last week and walked thru their vendor section. One booth had the HJC helmets and I tried on the IS Max, XXL size. I told the guy, hey that's close. He says I do have a XXXL. Tried the thing on and I have to say it is the biggest helmet I have ever tried on. I can generally make a helmet fit my head but the modulars have all been too short in the chin. This thing has plenty of room.

So for you fat heads give it a try. IS Max BT, XXXL

'05 K1200LT,
My dog is very selective where he will pee, yet he will poop anywhere. In that regard; we couldn’t be more different.

Re: Fat Head helmet ... finally!

Have a friend that is the GM of a Honda Dealership and he ordered all of the helmets available in xxxL and I found the HJC the Best for my Big Head. I was wearing it during my crash last year and it is amazing the damage it sustained, doing it's job.
