I've got a massive heid (as we say in Scotland), I struggled to find a helmet to begin with. They all sat very high up on my head. In the end I tried on a cheaper one in Halfords which sat lower and felt better, so I went with that. Maybe you've just got one that happens to sit very high up on your head and another one would sit better.

However, I was still half asleep when I read your post, I didn't notice the bit where you asked for info on the benefits and drawbacks of each type of helmet. So apologies for that.

Personally although i did not mention it in my previouse post, BMX helmets probably arent designed to help in a crash at 30mph wheras a road helmet is designed to handle crashes at high speeds.
