What full face helmet are you using, its size and if you can also weigh it or if you know the weight include that as well!

Thanks!

like I said in the other post I have the 07 Red CF remedy… I didnt weigh it personally but I looked at the website and it says 900 grams which sounds right

TLD D2, I think it is the 05 Composite Hardtop in red. Not sure of the weight, but I might weigh it at some point.

I'm running a new 07' 661 carbon pro (it's a crash replacement). I liked my old
one too. The weight that nom4d said seem about right. The new one fits a bit
smaller than the other did (both mediums). My head size is the one number
that both medium and large has (there's overlap).
Now that I'm used to the smaller size, it probably fit correctly as it doesn't move
like the other did.
They also made the mouth guard closer to your mouth. I can barely fit my hand
between the mouth guard and my mouth (like to wipe my mouth or to get the
water nipple to drink). I can wipe my mouth and I can drink from my camelbak, but
it is tight.
There is more ventilation than the older model though, especially around my ears, which is a very good thing here.

Overall a nice helmet, and light. The old one survived many bad head first landings,
one that displace my collar bone 1.5" and punctured a artery. I didn't get a
concussion or get knocked out so I'm happy.

I hope this helps.

I have the Fox one, it's light, but very hot. I take it off whenever I stop or climb.

I wear a 661 Pro Bravo Carbon, but honestly, I could really care less about how much it weighs. All helmets are probably going to be within a couple of ounces of each other. I wear mine when I know I'm gonna scare myself… otherwise I prefer to simply wear a Giro Havoc XC style helmet. To answer your question regarding weights however, MBA just reviewed a few popular helmets and here's their weight measurements:

Fox Rampage: 2 lbs, 7 oz.
Giro Remedy Carbon: 2 lbs, 4 oz.
661 Pro Bravo Carbon: 2 lbs, 5 oz.
Specialized Deviant Carbon: 2 lbs, 3 oz.
The One Carbon Fiber: 2 lbs, 6 oz.
Troy Lee Designs D2 Carbon: 2 lbs, 3 oz.

Primary rig: Devinci Ollie
AM rig: Norco Fluid LT2
Brodie Miscreant
'08 Buell XB12Ss Lightning

Thanks for letting me know what poo feels like.
