Review for Louis Garneau Women’s X-Lite Helmet – 2015
Louis Garneau introduces the lightest helmet on the market. Through patent pending U-Bar technology, U-shaped ribs that are folded six times create a complex exoskeleton to reinforce the helmet’s structure. A super lightweight helmet stabilizing device is fitted with the webbing system and can be fully adjusted using only one hand. Super MSB technology is a ring-shaped protection at the base of the helmet to reinforce the perimeter for enhanced protection. All of these details make the X-Lite helmet not only seconds saving, not only ultra light, but they make the helmet safe and do not compromise the need for protection.DETAILS: Certifications: CPSC-ASTM-CEN-AS 2063* Vents: 37 Weight: 6.9 oz/195 g In-Mold construction Super MSB technology: Ring-shaped plastic protection at the base of the helmet reinforces the perimeter for enhanced protection U-Bar technology: Highly inspired by the Exo-Nerv technology, the plastic shell is made with U-shaped ribs (plastic is folded 6 times) that act as a complex exoskeleton to reinforce the helmet’s structure Ringlock: Frame ring that ensures the helmet’s integrity in the event of impact Evacuation channels: Moisture evacuation channels provide better airflow and moisture wicking Spiderlock SL: Very light, the stabilizing system works jointly with the straps for a perfect fit.
