Nothing will move or get through that rascal at 1,829grams, must be one of the strongest & heaviest on the market.

When you have an accident, sure you want tough stuff that will protect your brain from impact, but too heavy does not help protecting you neck when huge cinetic energy imparts force on it...

That's why it's best to have a carbon fiber or analog technology shell, that'll flex instead of break and not impart as much cinetic energy on your neck.
Not ending up a vegetable is one thing, I'd also prefer not to end up paralysed from neck injuries.

Mine is 1700g roughly, size 57-58(M).
Doesn't feel any heavier than the C3 Pro tbh and is more comfortable.

Sorry about that, I shouldn't believe all I hear eh. This guy says it weighs 4lb 0.5oz which is approx. 1,829grams.

Mmm, a bit too heavy for my liking. The C3 Pro is not particularly light either, true.

What size is he talking about? Weight depends (or may depend) on shell size, doesn't it?

The revzilla guy got it wrong, zsguerreiro has already given us the correct weight for a medium.

For the OP

1-Nolan N104 flip up & Bell Star Carbon full face
2- 2109 Tiger 800 XRT
3-With original windscreen YES
4-Rider Height 5'10" or 175cm & seat on Low (29" inseam leg)
5-Noise/Buffeting 1 (mostly as the N104 is a noisy composite but no buffetting) when riding with the Bell Star Carbon it is 0

I mostly ride with the stock screen in the middle adjustment. I only raise it to full height in heavy rain.
