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

            Probably one of the lightest helmets on the market and for the price it was a steal. It fits great and doesn't leave dents in your forehead. It has a great design as well.

              I really like this helmet. It fits well, is lightweight and bright. I have not had any issues with the helmet loosening while riding. Just went on a lengthy ride yesterday in 90 deg heat and the 30+ vents helped keep me cool. I can't say anything about durability yet, but it seems to be well made.

                Great looking helmet. Bought it to replace another LG helmet. I wanted something good looking and light that breathed well. I found it. After some long rides I found that this helmet fits well and very light. Allows plenty of air in to keep you cool. I went with the matte black to pair with my other gear and I'm not disappointed.

                Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

                I bought this helmet to replace a 10 year old Bell helmet I have been using. This helmet is comfortable, lightweight and easy to adjust. The only draw back I find is though it has lots of vents they are small and narrow so air tends to flow around the helmet vs into it. The Bell had fewer vents but much larger in which you could feel the air moving through. But hey I am sure the aerodynamics are better on the Garneau. Over all a nice helmet at a great price from Nashbar!

                    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.
