Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet
Louis Garneau has created a masterpiece of design, performance comfort in their X-Lite Helmet -- not only Louis Garneau's lightest helmet, but the lightest helmet on the market at 195 grams. 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.

    Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

    I bought this helmet base on other rider experience with it, and it is true to words.

    My wife and kid both have 22 inches size helmets, the Louis Garneau would fit my wife perfectly since her head shape is even all the way around. But the same helmet would not fit my son since the back of his head is bulge out a bit.

    The helmet is very light and has excellent ventilation, she forgot that it was on while riding. Beautiful design and high quality built. The cushion inside is a bit thin but since the helmet is very light that would not cause any discomfort.

    Definitely would buy this again since it is very sturdy when crashed according to other riders.

      Comments about Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet:

      I have been doing ~75-90 mile rides for the past few weekends and often forget I'm even wearing a helmet at all. My neck is much happier since I switched from my much heavier old helmet. The helmet has very little internal padding, but it doesn't really need any since it's so light.

          Purchased at lighter helmet at suggestion of a friend to solve tired and sore neck after long rides. Overall really like it although it's not as light as stated. Have medium and out of the box it weighs 240g. Otherwise it would have been a 5 star.

            Freaking sweet lid! fits great, super light, vents well, killer price! I've owned this helmet for one season so far, and it has treated me well. Bonked my head on the concrete with this helmet in a 20mph crash, and it is totally intact as well as my melon.
