    I have seen a pic on scale of a Limar 104 helmet that weights only 170.7gr...

    And much cheaper too...

    I would say that sub 200g for a helmet is questionable. I thought that my S-Works was minimalist at 225g.

    Head protection is one area I'd prefer not to trade mass for "strong enough to pass the tests". I'd rather if they have a fancy material, they make it stronger than the testing standards call for.

    I have a Limar Pro 104 which is sub 200 grams and touted as the worlds lightest helmet. It fits my head real well, has passed all the right tests and looks pretty good IMO. I have no worries about using it.

    It was a Bell helmet - an old Xray model. It also fit me well (a lot of helmets like Giros dont seem to suit my head).
