Any experience with X-Lite helmets?

Looking at their 802 ultra Carbon. Part of my seemingly never-ending search for a light helmet, that will fit my big head.

Still have an X-1002 in the closet. Not the quietest helmets but the helmet fit me better than the Shoei Multitech so that sold me.

Well, I'd like to know if it feels very light, whether the sizing corresponds to other brands, how much you paid and where you got it.
You know, everything 😃.

It's very light, reasonably quiet, good ventilation, the back spoiler helps at speed, has held up well over the last 10k km, looks killer with the tinted visor, quality seems legit. Sizing is tricky as I'm a pretty average medium, just about every "M" fits me well - hard call. I like it.
Got it at Louis in Germany, they have sales often.

I have X551 and I like it, super light, comfortable and quiet. Internal finish though is a little bit on cheap side.

I know, right?

If it fits I think you'd be happy with it. Just so long as you realize that it's a track helmet, not touring. Meant more for a forward sport bike posture. That said I've done several multi day rides on my Multistrada with it and have had zero issues.

Just bought one on eBay from Italy. I can return it for a refund if it doesn't work. Too bad the girl doesn't come with it.
