The Louis Garneau Quartz II helmet delivers exceptional ventilation and comfort all in a lightweight package that's perfect for either road or mountain bike endeavors. Thirty-three vents plus internal evacuation channels keep the cool air flowing over your head while X-static XT2 padding plus the Spiderlock Pro II retention system ensures a precision fit.
  • In-Mold construction fuses the EPS liner with the polycarbonate shell to create a helmet that's light and strong
  • Super MSB technology: Ring-shaped plastic protection at the base of the helmet reinforces the perimeter for enhanced protection
  • Composite reinforcement: Lightweight composite skeleton provides structural support and integrity on impact
  • Integrated strap system with inner nerves: Inner frame which distributes the shock of impacts, thus providing support and protection while being lightweight
  • 33 vents deliver massive ventilation
  • Evacuation channels: Moisture channels provide better airflow and moisture wicking
  • Spiderlock Pro II: Helmet stabilizing system featuring a polymer neck support. It can be easily tightened on the head using only one hand using only one hand, thanks to its dented anti-slip wheel. Its inclination can be adjusted to several positions
  • Pro-lock divider: Small and light cam-locking device to quickly adjust strap position
  • X-static XT2 padding: Quick-drying antimicrobial material that inhibits growth of odor-causing bacteria. Its ergonomic design gives you optimum comfort

Comments about Louis Garneau Quartz II Helmet:

I ride around 150 miles a week. I needed a new helmet due to age of the old and the old wasn't all that comfortable but I'm cheap. I decided it was time to treat myself. Found this one on my favorite deal site Nashbar and it was a steal. The helmet is really light. Breathes. I forget it's on at times. The straps are soft. I live that it came with a light for the back. It also came with stickers to customize the color to match to my kits. Haven't decided on a color yet. My only grip is that my head isn't that wide so the helmet is better suited for someone with more of a wide head or larger round head. Lengthwise it's perfect and comfortable. Width takes some adjustment and still feels a little loose even though it's not. All in all I'm very happy with my purchase.

    The LED flasher that was included was a nice surprise. Unfortunately it was very unreliable. The batteries were dead out of the package and the new batteries lasted for one short ride.

      Comments about Louis Garneau Quartz II Helmet:

      I had a bad wreck last summer and broke my old helmet (and my collarbone, ouch); I had a back-up Specialized helmet but realized it was too small for my 23-1/4" (about 59cm) head.

      So after a ton of research, I got this LGQ2 helmet in size L (59-62cm). I only have a few hundred miles on it and the longest thus far in one ride is about 65...but it's already clear this is VERY comfortable. Has what I'd call premium interior padding -- I've never had a helmet this nice.

      This is also a fairly light helmet, I put it on and pretty much forget it which to me is the mark of a great lid. Ventilation seems excellent...it hasn't gotten hot here yet but the vents on this are oversized so heat should not be an issue.

      It looks about as good as a helmet can (no mushroom effect!) and the white/silver one comes with your choice of several colored decals if that appeals to you. I like the understated graphics and color scheme.

      Nice bonus is that it includes a press-on rear tail light. Fit customization is easy even in motion with a one-handed turn of the dial. The headset is also adjustable in back - there's a bit of play so you can slide it up or down as needed, say, for a pony tail. There is also room (in my case) to gear up with a wool hat underneath for winter riding.

      Straps are easily adjusted and stay in place; also comfortable enough that you don't even notice them, and are thin enough to fit inside your sunglass temples. You can also store your shades upstairs if desired. This helmet ticks about every box I can think of. Recommended.
