    I have a large, very oval, head too and the IRH Elite Extreme (long oval) is the only thing that fits me well. Fortunately, it is also well vented and decent looking.

    The GR8 and the JR8 aren't oval. All the rest of the CO's are (not talking about skull caps...don't know about them), but the G/JR8's are much more round.

    Love my OneK. I have a Defender to school and a CO AYR8 to show. Both are great comfy helmets.

    I would go to your nearest tack store and try on everything until you find one that fits you best. At the end of the day everyone is different so go with what works best for you!

    But they are still much more oval than a GPA. I have a GR8 and it squishes my head much more than my Hampton does, but not anywhere near the extent of a GPA.
