Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet
Louis Garneau has pulled out all the stops in creating the lightest helmet on the market: the X-Lite. Through patent pending U-Bar technology, U-shaped ribs that are folded six times create a complex exoskeleton in the shell to reinforce the helmet's structure while Super MSB technology along the perimeter further enhances the helmet's strength. Ventilation is superb via 37 vents and the ultra-lightweight SpiderLock SL retention system can be fully adjusted using only a single hand. Ergonomic, durable, and washable Airdry padding ensures all-day comfort and the ultra-light cam locks make dialing in the strap position a simple endeavor. And it all weighs in at a featherweight 195 grams.
  • The lightest helmet on the market at 195 grams
  • In-Mold construction reduces weight without compromising strength
  • Super MSB technology provides ring-shaped plastic protection at the base of the helmet to reinforce the perimeter
  • U-Bar technology utilizes U-shaped ribs to act as an exoskeleton in the shell to reinforce the helmet's structure
  • 37 vents deliver world-class ventilation, moisture evacuation, and cooling
  • SpiderLock SL retention system is ultra-light and adjusts on-the-fly using a single hand
  • Small and light cam-locking devices to quickly adjust strap position
  • Sealed Airdry padding ensures optimal comfort and is washable

    Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

    I typically ride in South Texas where it is HOT!! This helmet feels aero dynamic, but it somehow allows air to flow through the underside of the shell in a super efficient manner. I've used lots of different helmets, but this thing feels noticeably cooler in a hot environment. It's also light weight. I'd be interested to know how this helmet performs in cold weather?

      Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

      So far I really like the helmet. It is comfortable, light, vents very well, and the matte black color looks nice. My one issue with the helmet is that due to the size and placement of the vents, you can't really stick your sunglasses on the helmet like you can with most. I know that may seem trivial to seem but I like to be able to remove my glasses while riding. This helmet is also very reasonably priced especially combined with nashbar sales and discounts

          Good lightweight helmet value. I would make the side strap adjusters work a little easier/better but no complaints.

            Great helmet, but not as light!

              Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

              The helmet looks and feels great. I like that it has more rounded edges than most helmets, so it's less likely to catch on the ground if you slide. I was very disappointed that my medium weighed 235g - almost 20% more than advertised. 'lightest' was a big factor in my purchase, so I opted to return it a go for a lighter helmet.
