light weight helmet

if this subject has been covered please direct me to thread. I did a search and didn't find anything specific to me concern.

My 81 year old father and I are about to go on a 10 day trip from Northern CA to Pikes Peak. If time permits we'll visit MT. Rushmore.

I currently have a Scorpion EXO-700 helmet that weights 3lb 10oz.
I would like to get something lighter in a full face.

Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

Lazer line of helmets

Check out the Lazer line of helmets - carbon fibre and light. I own the Monaco flip up and am very happy with it.

I found that helmet here:ExtremeSupplyfor $329.
Can't really find any reviews except for Trackday Magazine. Do you have one? If so, what is your impression. I might go for it if reviews are candid and good.

Yes, I have one & really like it. I usually wear a large in HJCs & a large in the Xpeed fits the same, no pressure points. Ventilation is actually pretty good for just 2 intake holes on top. I pulled the liner ( padding ) out & opened up the holes to match the holes in the shell. It's the same helmet as the Joe Rocket Speedmaster Carbon. I bought my extra shields for the Speedmaster. Search it on ebay, I picked mine up for about 190.00.
