A friend of mine wants to order a Titanium Spike from Oakley.com but he's concerned about the size. Due to our remote work location trying them on isn't really an option. This will be his first pair and I'm trying to help him pick out a pair that will fit his larger head well.

I'm hoping that someone who has a pair could do him a favor and measure the distance from hinge to hing and between the earsocks as well.

Thank you in advance.

I don't think measuring will help much as far as fitment goes. I have a pair of Ti spikes, and they are a pretty large style, but they don't fit big at all. My head is medium (7 3/8 hat size) and they are a bit tight on me. One frame style I would recommend for a large head would be the Hijinx/Antix. If he really wants a Ti frame maybe a Romeo2 or a X metal XX.

I would also recommend the Hijinx/Antix as well as the Eyepatch or the Oil Rig for those with big noggins. The X Metal XX or the Romeo 1 or Romeo 2 would also work fine if you can get the smaller temple shox (or T-shox). Also, the vintage RazorBlades always seem to fit huge on me as well. You can usually find them for a good price on ebay as well.

The Spike is a great choice for a guy with a big head. I say go for it! I've got 2 pair, and I've clearly got a big head! I very much like the thin frame and the square-ish style.

Yeah, I'm in the big head club too and I'd say for me, the best fits are Romeo 2, Antix, Hijinx and Eyepatch. Inmate fits pretty nice too.

Spike may fit the large head pretty well, but I would advise your friend select from one of the previously mentioned pairs. I wouldn't normally recommend the spike to people just for overall comfort, particularly for any long periods of time.

For me, the standard spike was too heavy for any length of wear. The Ti on the other hand is great. If the frames can be stretched out a bit, they'd probably work ok on a big head, but being Titanium that may be a bit more difficult than with the C-5 frames.
