We weighed a Large sized helmet that came in at just 3.20 lbs, which makes it less than 3 1/4 lbs! This helmet will meet or exceed both SNELL and DOT standards, making it extremely protective. Joe Rocket decided to use the Quadport 2.0 ventilation system, which has 2 large front intakes that are aerodynamically channeled to the rear venturi-effect exhaust spoiler.

Joe Rocket Speedmaster Carbon Helmet - KitATX TX
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Light, Quiet, Light, Carbon, Light, Well Made
Cons: Still pricey, though not unreasonably so
I've been through a lot of helmets, primarily heavy modular ones. A couple years ago, I decided to try a carbon fiber full-face I found on closeout. I had quit smoking, so a modular wasn't so important to me and, well, dude Carbon fiberThat was a Joe Rocket RKT-101, and it served me well until I got hit by a car and it hit the ground at 60 per. When I got back on two after that, I got a deal on a Bell Vortex. That was a great helmet, but it was also heavy and loud.Enter the Joe Rocket Speedmaster. This thing is a solid 13 ounces less than the Bell it replaces, and it's much, much, quieter as well. My neck doesn't get sore like it used to, and I can hear my music at, well, let's just say higher speeds than I could with the Bell.The fit on this helmet is rather particular. It had me worried at first, and I actually got a headache from it one day when I didn't properly adjust it on my head, but it's not a problem as long as it's seated right. Basically, while every other helmet I've owned has had a range of movement front to back, this one wants to stay at a particular place on my head. That's actually a good thing. It doesn't cut off the top of my field of view like my old Nolans used to. It stays put where it should, as long as you put it on right in the first place. And you'll know if you've got it on wrong.I ride with a Bose in-ear headset, and I have the speaker unit for my Adaptiv TPX in the helmet's left ear pocket. No problems there.In theory, I like Bell's magnetic strap keeper better than Joe Rocket's snap. In practice, the elastic loop required by Bell's system broke off repeatedly and Joe Rocket's just works.Road surfaces and half-covered trucks here in Texas take their toll on shields. At about 25 for an anti-fog shield, those replacements cost a lot less for a Joe Rocket than they do for a Bell 40 or a Nolan 70. The anti-fog treatment seems to work pretty well so far, and we've actually had some cool nights here recently that put it to the test.The ventilation seems good so far, though I'm sure it won't flow enough air come Summer. Nothing does. Nothing could. I was worried that the vents would be flimsy when I saw pictures, but they're not. Build quality in general seems to be excellent. It doesn't feel as sturdy as my Bell, but I think that's at least partly because of weighing nearly a pound less...My bike is my only transportation, and I have three weeks or so of wearing this helmet day in and day out. No complaints yet, and that's pretty high praise in and of itself. Well, okay, two complaints the visor is a little hard to open when it's all the way closed, and I would've preferred a Nolan-style clicker on the neck strap. That's why I didn't give it five stars, but I would've done four and a half if it let me.
