Product Description

Weighing only 190 grams and featuring 37 heat-exchanging vents, the Louis Garneau X-Lite Helmet is barely noticeable atop your noggin, providing impact protection without weighing you down or soaking you in sweat. Sealed Airdry Padding is washable for easy cleaning after long, sweaty rides. Furthermore, its anatomical fit remains secure through rapid movements, courtesy of its easy-adjusting Spiderlock SL rack-and-pinion system. In-Mold construction provides ASTM and CSPC-certified impact protection. Reinforcing the helmet's perimeter in case of a high-impact crash, Louis Garneau engineered the X-Lite with its Super MSB technology, which places a ring-shaped plastic protector around the base of the helmet. Further aiding in its ability to withstand a serious crash, U-Bar technology reinforces the helmet's plastic shell with U-Shaped ribs that act as a supportive exoskeleton.

Good helmet, light. I bought this LG helmet because I have an LG Ozzy helmet and I love the fit. The Ozzy has a more oval shape like my head. The X-lite feels more round, touching more front and back and not on the sides.

Not as light as listed but still happy with the purchase. Large is 250 grams for those that are interested.

The padding is sparse but it is the most comfortable helmet I have owned. The locking mechanism is very secure and is easy to adjust. It's the first helmet I have not had to trim the straps for, which is nice; they were the perfect length.

Would recommend to others without hesitation; just don't expect it to be 190 grams as advertised or 230 grams as listed on the sticker in the helmet.

I'm incredibly happy with my new Louis Garneau helmet! It has better cranial coverage in the back than the Giro Pro-Light (the main reason I choose this helmet) and as the name says its "Lite" which means I can wear it alllll day long! Awesome!

I only had this helmet for two rides - one verifies it is light, nice fit, and the other proves its great protection as it saved my head when felling off my bike on a dirt road. Totally will recommend this helmet to anyone. The fell happened too soon and I did not feel anything hitting my head - but I then realized there must be some bad hit as three places inside the helmet cracked. It does not only protect you but also ease the impact as much as possible. I am very grateful for deciding to change to this new helmet.

Also, my head is relatively big size and Garneau in general produces big helmet. The Large size fits well on me. Very comfortable and no binding or too tight feelings.

I have tried several different helmets and this one was the most cofortable. It is so light weight that I forget I even have it on sometimes. The straps seem a little cheap, but they are soft, so they don't irritate, Overall very happy with this helmet.

For sure is one, if not the lightest helmet in the market. And pink is cheaper.
So I grabbed it and nobody on the peloton has even noticed.

Quality of Garneau products is out of the question as one of the best in the market.

I didn't wear a helmet until I got this so I could ride in an event that required them. I'd previously tried cheapo-whatever helmets, as well as Nutcase, but they were heavy and irritating. This one? Light, comfortable, awesome. I nearly always wear a helmet -- this helmet -- now, because my main reason not to wear one is gone.
