Helmet fit 2017
« on: October 30, 2017, 08:27:07 am »

The last thread I could find on helmet fit for different shapes was from 2014.  I just wondered if Tipperary is still the only that will fit long oval shapes.

I would say yes for the really oval.
But ovation is fitting the mostly oval.  And I also would say, try on as many as you can.  Troxel used to be for round only, but some of their newer models are more accommodating to the slightly oval shape.

Thanks.  Our family seems to boarder on the rectangle shape.   :P  I've been to three stores and only found Troxel to try on so far.  They've all been much too round for me.  I've got until spring at this point, so I'll try to get further afield to try some more on.

Crestview Tack store at the Ingham County Fairgrounds in Mason carries Tipperary helmets(and other brands too). I bought one there recently for my oval-headed daughter. Steve(owner) will be having a black Friday sale this month!

Ovation is fine for long ovals, I have one and a OneK defender that I ADORE- it was pricey but it's my show helmet, too. I cannot wear a Troxel for 2 seconds, they kill me.
