    Bmw carbon helmet

    I have been looking at lighter weight helmets and found the BMW Interagal helmet that weighs only two pounds. I can't seem to find a place to order one. I know they are not available in the states and would be greatfull if someone had a source for these
    Thanks

    did a quick search on Vemar CF helmets and it looks like they are discontinued

    However, here is a place that has two of them for $425. Maye one is your size?

    Vemar makes good helmets, not sure why the CF ones appear to be NLA.

    I would go to the helmet weight chart on webbikeworld.com to see what is available and the weight. I think Nexx makes a super light at a very reasonable price. At least compared to the BMW carbon.

    I have used the Nexx XR1R Carbon this past season, very comfortable and very light. Happens to have an excellent shape for my head. I bought it after having neck surgery and I wanted a light helmet that fit properly. This definitely fits the bill.

    Check out STAND 21. They make helmets for race cars, carbon fiber very lite and expensive I can attest to that fact as I have one. They are bringing out a motorcycle helmet. In the 1500-2000 price range for street use, racing ones about double that

    Could be, the photos are ? 2001-2006. However, the date at the bottom of the webbikeworld page is current as of this morning; 11/12/11.

    If it is... then the MSRP (adjusted for inflation); $1,640-$2,189USD

    DesignerHelmets in the UK is about the most comprehensive source of head gear I know of. The BMW Enduro Carbon is available ( ?875.00 ($1,406.74)), but the BMW Integral no longer appears on their database. If the price of a replacement face shield (?69.00 ($112.00)), for the Enduro Carbon, is any indication of the cost of owning the helmet I think I'll pass. But I s'pose if you're able to spend $1,500 for a helmet, $112 for a new shield is a paltry sum.

    Thanks for the link and the responses;

    I agree the price is steep, however if you are faced with the options

    riding without a helmet due to neck injury

    giving up riding

    pay a little bit more for a super lightweight piece of gear ????

    I like the latter option.

    Too young to give up riding and if more riders demand a lighter helmet the mfg's will respond in kind.

    Eventually the price will come down,Good old supply and demand

    The BMW carbon enduro may be the way to go and remove the visor when not riding dual sport. The nexx carbon looks like another good option.
