Have had the Scott Vanish for a week now. Good weight, nice fit, doesn't feel or look big or bulky on my head:) The R wasn't available so took the regular (mountain version). I think the only difference is the visor, but this comes off:)

Resurrecting an old thread...

2013 Limar Ultralight+ (EU version), S/M size = 169.7g. Removing the pad on the chin strap drops another 1.8g. To me it's an improvement from the 104. Ventilation is better at the back of the head, shell is slightly thicker on the sides so it's presumably a little safer, and fit is slightly better on the front of my head.

Downside is a number of shops have stopped shipping the EU version to the US so it took a few tries to have one at my door.
