could be worth trying the shred ready vixen, my girlfriend uses one, or maybe happy2b or email sweet to see if they can make a smaller helmet give them your head measurements you never know!

I've had problems getting helmets to fit too, but I recently bought a happy2b skook and it fits beautifully. Its also well easy to adjust. And they look damn sweet!

WRSI's are great helmets, and you can adjust them to your head size. My friend also has a small head, and it works fine for him, he just added a second layer of foam (which they come with)

Just out of interest. How small is your head? How many inches or centimeters do you measure around your head with a tape measure? (circumference) :grin:

My head measures 59cm and I've got the biggest Strutter (L/XL). It fits me pretty nicely and is only a little loose when I shave my head totally skin. The small one should work nicely. (Just don't shave your head :grin: hehehe)

I'm going to get the full cut rocker too. Good helmets those Sweets. No complaints my side. Good luck and enjoy. ;)

Where as I have the same size head find the m/l Strutter fit perfectly with not extra padding, the L/xl strutter slides aroud, and the m/l rocker too small! lx/l rocker perfect, my problem is I cant decide between full cut with moto visor or half cut hmm,

The strutter is a good helmet and I have been happily using mine on crek runs for the last 5 years its just in need of replacement. Hope this helps

Ya, the Sweet helmets are nice just pretty damn pricey. I love my WRSI it fits like a glove and has good protection for both creeking and playing. I think the Sweet Rockers are going to have the best protection though.

Lil miss happy, several ladies have found that the M/l rocker is smaller than the s/m strutter with the exra fit pads and with the cradle bit adjusted fully :)

Hi.

I'vve got a small head (53cm, i think) and I use the sweet strutter S/M with 4 flame pads sort of inline wiht my forehead but at the back and sides and then I have two pieces of sort of 'cushioned foam' and the front on my forehead. It still moves but fits better than anything else that looks quite good. I used to have a pro-tec but can't remember which model and with a skull-cap and ear flaps on it fitted perfectly. Although you can't hear very well with skull cap and ear flaps!!

Hope this helps.
