    Wow, there's a lot more options in Europe for rally hats now.
    And finding places to try on helmets isn't as easy as it sounds. There's what, maybe 5-6 places in the whole US that stock them? Even road race helmets aren't stocked too many places either. Just be willing to send it back and get a different size/brand if need be.

    My helmet is an open face costing around $175 is going expire this December so I'm hoping to save up and get the Stilo WRC but that depends on what's needed for the Mini LOL

    Hello Guys, not sure if this helps, but I know at our local circuit race track at NJMP they are a bell dealer, and various other saftey is sold there. You can pic up seats, HANS, belts, etc. Try calling a local track and see if they have a track store that sells this kind of stuff, you might have some luck! Our local track is NJMP which is is New Jersey.

    Your best bet is to go to a rally and ask to try on helmets from competitors (tech, parc expose, finish, etc...) I'd let you try mine on. I'm sure others would as well.

    I've found that most helmets are spot on with the sizes. Measure your head with a tape.
