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

  • Small and light cam-locking devices to quickly adjust strap position
  • Sealed Airdry padding ensures optimal comfort and is washable

Great visibility and lightweight

Pros

  • Comfortable Fit

  • Highly Adjustable
  • Lightweight

Cons

    Best Uses

    • All-Around

    Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

    This is much lighter than my previous helmet, and the color is not only visible but cooler than black. I also like the fit- I usually have a hard time finding a helmet or hat that fits my skull shape and size right, but this one does and adjusts large enough for me.

    Cheap but probably okay

        • Short Rides

        Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

        Bought it because of the color, bright highly visible helmets are few and far between. The straps are thin, the vents small, and perhaps it weighs more than most. It will do, but I will keep my eyes open for something better. Nothing that is terrible but just isn't a quality product.

          Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

          I've been a Bell and Specialized helmet user for 15 years. Other Garneau products I've used I've been pleased with, and really liked the looks of this helmet, so I gave it a try. Very good product with, in my short time using it, only one drawback; the dial type adjustment mechanism, which I consider a benefit over other helmets, needs to be re-tightened during the ride. Not a big deal, though.

              Runs large. If it is too big it is not comfortable as the pads are really pretty thin. I wear a hat underneath and it feels better. Light. Could use a little more adjustment head circumference wise.

                  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.
