Helmet review: Limar X-Ride




The main attractions of the new X-Ride are obvious the moment you stick it on and head out for a ride — it weighs next to nothing (260g) and the fewer, larger vents (16 in total) do a very impressive job of keeping your head cool. It’s a one-size-fits-all (55-61cm) design which you might see as a flaw, but none of the three testers who tried it had issues with the adjustable fit; it doesn’t even appear bulky and will allow a thin layer underneath in winter. The thin interior pads can be removed for washing. While no light mount is supplied we found it possible to Velcro one on between the two upper hexagonal vents, although it needed regular tightening. Various colours available. JC
