Stilo ST5 GT 8860-2018 Carbon Fiber Helmet size chart image

To get the most accurate measurement please have an assistant use a fabric measuring tape or a piece of string to measure the circumference of your head starting at a point approximately one inch above your eyebrows in front, around a point in the back of your head that results in the largest possible measurement, and finally wrapping back to the front.  It is a good idea to take several  measurements to make sure you have the largest one.
