    Helmet weights

    In light of two separate threads in the last week alone regarding helmet weights (on RM, anyway), I have compiled a weight chart of the stuff I have immediate access to (hey, it's a start, right?).

    I didnt realize my 661 Full Bravo Carbon was sooo light. Almost makes me feel less safe. But would a heavier helmet offer more protection? BTW good start on that list-never thought too much about the weight of my helmet...its only my head...
    I watch the O.C. cause it makes me happy...

    And the Vigor Carbon is the lightest!

    Did you weigh more than one of each helmet?

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Hey

    It would appear that your chart is incomplete. What about the Azonic/O'neal helmets?????

    Cool chart otherwise, thanks.

    Actually, yes, people do. I don't want a 4lb neck-snapper on my head.
