There are no, repeat, no race helmets that fit locally.

so, give us a clue, how does the virtue fit  smile.gif

 

FWIW, having used or tried quite a lot of different race helmets I have found the majority to fall into what I call the "uvex" fit - Uvex, Shred, Giro -  or the "Briko" fit - Briko, POC, Carrera, Marker.  I find the latter work well for me whereas UVEX/Shred (feels like the same mold) just don't give a good fit

Quite nicely,  she says.  biggrin.gif     In a size medium it is  20cm front to back (inside), 16cm across at the temples, 16.5 across at the cutout  above the ears, 9cm vertical.

 

Giros come down too far in the front and flop side to side/ Carreras give her a headache for not enough room front to back.

If you pm with a diagram of how you are measuring I can do some comparisons for you on a poc medium, briko medium (like a poc large) and uvex large if that will help. All full coverage race helmets
