    Pros

    • Good Ventilation
    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • Can Feel The Hard Shell
    • Pads Are Very Thin So I C
    • Straps Are Flimsy

    Best Uses

    • Road Biking

    Comments about Louis Garneau X-lite Road Helmet - Closeout:

    the helmet is light at the expense of thicker more comfortable pads. I think
    the straps feel so thin and cheap because stronger straps would add weight.
    I guess you can't have it all. I like light but can most definatley feel the helmet when I am on a bumpy road. Overall, it is a decent helmet for the sale price I got it at.

        Great helmet, very light, breathes well. I have a small head, and it adjusted very nicely (and simply) to my size. I hope to never need it, but I'm glad to have it!

          Comments about Louis Garneau X-lite Road Helmet - Closeout:

          After trying 4 other brands, this helmet is the first one that is light enough on my head that doesn't trigger migraines. I wore it for the first time for one hour with no issues. I'm looking forward to now being able to ride safely. I do have to wear it larger than most would, but it's the pressure that triggers my headaches. I also did have to put a layer of batting on the top so I wouldn't feel the helmet rest on the top of my head. It may not be snug, but at least it is safer than riding without a helmet at all. I hope this information is helpful for others who have the same issues.

            Comments about Louis Garneau X-lite Road Helmet - Closeout:

            I bought this to replace Giro prolight helmet. The Giro was light but it does not have a dial adjustment and it was not comfortable when riding for long periods of time. The Louis Garneau x-light helmet weighs 1 ounce more but it is much more comfortable and one can fine tune the adjustment using the dial. This is definitely a keeper. Worth the money.

              Comments about Louis Garneau X-lite Road Helmet - Closeout:

              I have ridden for 42 years now and this is the lightest, most comfortable helmet I have ever owned, short of a leather hairnet helmet in my Cat. 3/collegiate racing days in the early 1970's. I will definitely purchase another
              Lite when my current helmet is due for replacement this late summer/early fall.
