Do you by any chance have a photo wearing it? The ultralight looks kinda funny with the "spoiler" at the back. (If thats the one you mean: http://www.limar.com/en/products/bike-h ... /null.html )

I have a medium Giro Aeon which came it at 198g. Very well ventilated and the roc-loc system makes it easy to adjust to my head shape. I've only had it for 6 weeks or so but it's very nice so far.

I noticed one of the online retailers her in Australia has started selling Ranking helmets and I was curious about them as I hadn't really seen or heard much about them.

I currently have two Limar Pro 104 helmets which have come in pretty much on the stated weight.

Uvex Boss Race 215 grams or the UVEX FP1 205 grams.....these fit very nice and don't look huge on your head.

I currently have a Specialized S-works prevail which is very light (a hair under 200gr) and well ventilated but the front part is coming just above my eyebrows and the smaller size is too small for my head. What other options are there for light helmets?

The Limar 777 looks very nice, both weight and price-wise but I haven't found a verified weight. Any others?


Did you try searching for "Helmet Weight" (???)
Because there's a pretty damn amazing thread over here.

No need to make a new one, no?

Bumping the existing thread and in the process asking for new contributions would have been a good move too :mrgreen:

My Limar ultralight in S/M comes in at 204grams. As it has been said you can barely feel it on your head. It does have the netting in the front vents to prevent bugs, but also prevents you from putting your sunglasses there (in case that matters to you). Plus if you shop around they can be found cheap, the looks are however subjective.

My Limar ultralight (size L) weights 210gr. It really feels like you wear almost nothing.


I heartily second the Limar suggestion. Plus you can scratch off the "Worlds Lightest Helmet" logo on the side with a fingernail.

One word of caution: Limar recently redesigned its top-end helmet. I've heard that the new version, instead of fitting closely, looks like a typical mushroom helmet.
