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

  • 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

      • Road Biking

      Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

      This helmet is a great option for any rider that only hits the road once or twice a week. I just feel like it's a bit under par for an everyday commuter. It's nice that it has a ratcheting system, but it's weird how the ratcheting system is attached to the straps. Overall, I highly recommend this item to any road cyclist looking for an aerodynamically shaped helmet.

          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.

              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?
