Sizing of Carrera race helmets??? How true to size they are???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

As the title says I want to buy Carrera helmet, but the one that I am opting for the L size which is rated for 60 cm.....

My head is like around 58.7- 59cm not too tight..

 

I want tight race fit.. 

Does anyone know if they are true to size, a size smaller or larger ???

LMK, thanks..

 

P.S. For example I also have Uvex helmet and I opted for a  L /59-60/ and is perfect, very tight.

 

Regards, Andy.......

Helmets are items you need to try on,

they have different interior shapes.

Even within brands.

 

If this is a internet/mail order situation,

better make sure there is full refund

if helmet does not work.

Andy, I wore a Carrera for years, Size 60. A large. currently am using a UVEX Ultra Wing in a large. I would say they fit similarly. I believe the new Carrera's are 59-60cm.

 

As SS said diffferent helmets have different interior shapes. I tried on tons of Motorcycle helmets for example and they are even more distinctively designed for different headshapes and differ dramatically even by model in the same manufacturer's line.

 

For instance my wife and both wear Shoei Helmets. Her's is a Multitec Flip Front, Mine a Full Face RF-1100. Mine fits like it is made for me, When I put her's on it feels oval and smashes my forehead! Both are the same size.

 

If you can, go try some on or ask someone you know to try theisr on.

 

Briko was my favorite helemet and they are back available in the US, might want to check those out too!

Thanks for the feedback everyone.. Too bad I can't try it. Full refund and return isn't a problem.

Thanks a lot Atomicman... This the feedback that actually will work for me..

I didn't mention in details, but I have the same UVEX WING pro race helmet in size L/59-60/.

It fits very well for my size and headshape. Meaning that I shouldn't have problems with Carrera in the same size....

I will buy it and report shortly.........

 

Best regards, Andy...

i have both UVEX WING and CARRERA BULLET,SIZE XL

 

i think Carrera is too narrow and a little long

 

 

SO I THINK UVEX IS THE BEST SHAPE FOR ASIAN.
