    I remember seeing a DIY/hack sort of video on YouTube a few days back where someone suggested using rubber bands to create a channel for the eye glasses' stems on both sides. I'll try it out this weekend and see if something like that helps with the pain.
    Interesting, let me try the hack too!

    I always wear a head scarf or a balaclava and have no problems with my ears. Since the cloth/material are bit smooth, the helmet just slides down over my ears.
    Wind in my hair.... and I'm semi bald...

    So, between the Studds Shifter and the Studds Thunder (new launch, apparently), which is a better helmet?

    Guys need a suggestion. My doctor has advised me to wear a lighter helmet. Currently I have a Vega Boolean which weighs 1.5 Kgs. I had it tested on my weighing scale. Can you please suggest a good full face helmet which is 1Kg or less than 1 Kg. It should offer good full face protection. It need not have vents for air flow and my primary requirements are light weight and very good full face protection.

    Can you please suggest some models that I can buy?

    I felt shifter better, except the chin curtain on thunder is a good addition.

    Check out studds chrome economy and studds professional. Though they sacrifice much on protection, but tip the scale around a kg.

    Are there non Studds/Steelbird/Vega helmets which weigh about 1 KG or less than 1 KG? Any imported brands that I can look at.

    Why don't you take a look at the MT snake carbon fiber helmet. As you can understand, being a CF helmet it's super light and super rigid though will be a bit of a pocket pinch.

    MT and LS2 are brands worth considering

    Why not SMK or Axor? Can you please explain? I'm looking to upgrade my Vega off-road helmet. I'm confused by the number of options. My budget is 4k
