Does this helmet come in size large? The sales associate at REI measured my head at 60 cm, which is equal to 23.62". The specs say size medium only goes up to 23.25". He recommended the Montara as a comfortable helmet.

Asked by: salrightsok
It appears identical to the Men's "Montaro" in every way except the colors. I tried both the Montara and Montaro on in-store in Medium and I couldn't tell a difference in fit or construction. If you need a Large, just switch to the Men's version. As usual, the Women's version is the same as the Men's, just "shrinked and pinked" as they say.

The Montara arrived and fits well.  There is a black plastic device with a round silver piece in a plastic bag that also was packed in the box.  What is this and how is it used?
