Strengths:    It fits!

Weaknesses:    No visor option, like many other Bell models. Gets kinda sunny when you are huffing and puffing up a hill in the morning. And as others noted, basic and bland styling.

Bottom Line:   
If you have ample brain capacity, there are few helmets that will fit. I know, I tried them all. Bell used to custom make large bike helmets back in the day. No more, but at least they sell this large helmet.

Strengths:    The helmet fits those of us with unusually large domes. When your head is the size of a bus, there isn't too much out there to fit it. Bell has a good product, and it's cheap.

Weaknesses:    The style is from the 1960s...pre-Brady Bunch. Expect to look more like Louis Armstrong in a helmet instead of Lance.

Bottom Line:   
Not many choices, but this is a practical compromise. This website (http://www.bhsi.org/bighead.htm)gives a bit of information about other manufacturers. Bottom line, us large brain, large head dudes and dudettes need to write the manufacturers to get more choices and better styles.

Date Reviewed: June 13, 2000

Strengths:    It's a Bell, and it fits!

Weaknesses:    It only comes in two colors, bland styling.

Bottom Line:   
It's comfortable, it's light and it's reasonably priced. Wish it was cooler looking, but hey, it fits. Kudos to Bell for making a helmet for the "cranially endowed". Five flamin' chilis for value, only four flamin' chilis for bland styling.

Strengths:    
Only super sized helmet that I know about


Weaknesses:    
boring design


Bottom Line:   
If you are one of the people in the world with a huge head (we have this because of our large brains) then the King Head is for you. Very comfortable
