    Troy Lee A1 MIPS: good weight!

    Time to upgrade my old Giro Xen Helmet and after a bit of looking around I got the Troy Lee A1 MIPS. Weight was a pleasant surprise, I was expecting 400+ grams based on who remembers which review but instead the M/L is 341. The large visor adds 34 grams. Not bad at all for an extended coverage MIPS helmet. The Xen medium was 337.

    Lovely helmet the A1, fits like a glove

    Is 375g a good weight for an extended coverage helmet? I really like my Bell Stoker MIPS helmet, but if 375g is light, then the Bell is positively svelte at 335g (with visor).

    The A1 was my second choice, people seem to love that helmet.

    I'm really happy with the Stoker MIPS, I can't recommend it highly enough. It's so breathable, I actually forget I'm wearing it, even in 75+ degree sun. It's comfortable to wear it tight, too, so I have no problems with the added weight of my Gloworm X2 headlight in the front.
