XXXL HJC CL-SP alternative..?

I have the world's largest head.. The only helmet that I have found to fit my huge melon is a HJC CL-SP in XXXL.. I have tried the new Arai XXXL, Shoei XXXL, Icon XXXL, Scorpion XXXL, etc, etc. Nothing fits my large head excpet the HJC XXXL. I have heard the HJC XXXL is one big helmet. The quality is not the best thogh. Has anyone else had similar problems finding a quality helmet that fits a rather XXXL size head. I just have a huge melon.

I was thinking of trying Schuberth next. They make th R1 model in XXXL. Anyone had any luck with XXXL Schuberth..? Any help would be appreciated. I do not really care about cost at this point because how much money is your head worth..? I just want a safe, quality helmet to fit. Anyone know of a custom sized helmet maker..??

Thanks in advance for any input...

Welcome fellow cranial-endowed one. I too have a melon, although not maybe as big as yours. I can wear an Arai Signet in XXXL, and I am hoping the new Profile fits the same (long-oval). I also have tried XXXL Ikon and Suomy, but neither fit right and were tight at the forehead.

I'd try your old thread as there are a lot of helmets now in there.

I've got a xxxxl Vega. The HJC xxxl left with a terrible hotspot I could never get rid of.

IMO the HJC is a quieter helmet than the Vega, but i'm pretty much out of options.

AFX came out with the Magnus for big heads, but i've yet to see one in person.
