Lightest, Smallest Helmet 2019

Recommended Posts

Last year I upgraded my 22 year old SPH5 to an ASPIDA with lightspeed ANR fitted. I bought the carbon fibre model & took all of the visor assembly off so I could fit a peak(found a motorbike helmet peak which fits great). I love the ANR, I don’t know how I went so long without it & the helmet is so light I don’t even notice that I’m wearing it. 

Im not sure where you’d buy one in Canada, check them out here - paracletelifesupport.com

First fellow I’ve heard from who’s tried both the Northwall and 050, that’s very helpful information. Would love to pick your brain a tad on the specific preferences about the Northwall, as those two lids are the only ones on my short list. 

Hello Bee3 and WCO,
Very interesting conversation as I also have the 050 and the Northwall on my shortlist.

Would you mind sharing with us a bit of your backstage talks?
For example Bee3, did you have ANR on your 050 and do you miss it with the Northwall? Which one was giving you the most head space during longline operations in the astar?
WCO what did you finally end up choosing, and why?

Thanks guys.

Hey Jeremy,

No I don't run ANR so can't comment on that.

I Liked the 050 but the Northwall is better as you have two internal visors and also a lower profile than the 050.

Im 6' 2 and the spend my days looking down the hole in the Astar.

I wouldn't buy another Helmet after having a Northwall!

LH 250 is a good helmet too, I'm not to bothered long lining with it in an Astar with the outer visor. However, if you have a big melon the ear cups using the light speed as an ANR option don't leave you much adjustment. Although my head may look pretty rough its relatively normal sized and I'm down to one velcro pad in the ear cup position adjustment if my head was any bigger and I couldn't use it.
