As used in the professional peloton
The Astana and Direct Energie Professional teams have sought to find an edge on the competition by wearing the low drag Limar Ultralight+ which at an incredible 175g (medium) is the world’s lightest road bike helmet.
Limar have created the lightest road bike helmet on earth, so light you would think it’s not even on your head. Together with its Ultrafit+ system, double shell in-mould technology and 22 air vents this sporty helmet brings also comfort, safety and excellent ventilation to a dreamlike lightness experience.
The Ultralight+ is also worn to success by mountain bike racers looking for a light lid and comes complete with a small rear light that can be attached to rotary retention dial (Ultrabright 0.3W 3 function LED light).
ULTRAFIT+ Great performance and ergonomic fit
The minimal, incredibly comfortable, featherlight fit system provides great comfort, stability and adjustability. The Ultralight fit system allows real ergonomic fitting thanks to its vertical and horizontal adjustment. The micro dial and the vertical position can be adjusted without removing the helmet.
Road.cc said, “The pads have plenty of cushioning and once the dial is tightened they spread the load well without any pressure points and the padded chinstrap is a nice touch as well.”
Designed, styled and tested in Italy.

Sometimes forget its even on my head!!
This is by far the lightest and most comfortable helmet I have ever worn, so much so I sometimes have to pat my head to check i've remembered to wear it!!! the matt black and red colour matches my colnago ACR and club kit down to the ground, and the reflective strips just set it off and add that extra bit of safety.
I've got all my clubmates asking about it and they cannot believe how good this lid is!

Phenomenally Light And Comfortable
Bought this helmet off the back of seeing the Astana Pro Team wearing it and doing some research. I decided to order when I realised it is the lightest helmet in the world and when it arrived I couldn't believe how light it is. Another nice surprise was the free click on rear light I got with it to which I love for my commuting in the winter.
In summary phenomenally light, comfortable and the best helmet I have ever owned.
