X-light carbon.
01 July 2024 by John M
Have always had Shoei helmets previously, decided due to pricing would have a change.
Bought the X-lite and happy with it.
Fit for the medium is the same as the Shoei if not more comfortable, finish is great and I find it light.
Quality is slightly down but for the price excellent.
Relatively quiet, so overall very happy.
Would recommend.
Great Quality
27 June 2024 by Majed A
This is my first helmet, and I bought it online without trying other brands, not the wisest thing to do but I was not disappointed with this helmet! The carbon texture work is amazing and the as soon as I unpacked it, it was evident that this is a high quality helmet. I'm size medium and this fits me perfectly and feels light.

When I took it out for a ride I noticed that the aerodynamic are great especially when turning my head as the one I used from the training centre did blast my head whenever I looked to my side. And to top it up, the Pin lock is great addition and very easy to fit and it's hard to fog once installed.

Very satisfied with the quality and the service from SPS is second to none!
Light, comfy

I have the 803 as well. This one is just as comfortable and almost as light. Visor is more positive to adjust and clip closed and the sun visor works great. Not the quietest. Does not vent as well as the 803.

Placed online order to try at Reading branch. Arrived next day. Excellent help and advice from store staff about correct fit & feel. Helmet purchased at a great price.
Very comfortable & lightweight helmet. Sun visor lever a little difficult to locate, will get used to it.
Excellent quality, fit and features.

After spending about an hour at the boston store trying 3 different barnds provided by the very helpful staff, I opted for the X-lite 903. Having worn it for over 1,500 mile I am pleased that I did.
It's comfortable, quiet (particularly when in free air out of turbulence - note :I wear earplugs)
The easy removable visor and lining are very useful and the drop down sun visor is easy to use and effective. I subsequently bought a nolan intercom which fits perfectly.
Top quality again

Great service yet again from Sportsbikeshop. I had ordered a Nolan N80-8 but didn't like the fit so returned and got the X- lite instead. Was a bit worried about the sizing as I normally have a large fit, they said I was a medium. It is tight but hoping it was loosen up a bit in time. Overall quality is very good and carbon look is great.

Nice piece ok kit
14 October 2023 by Mark B
My first helmet since I getting back into biking for the first time since 2008. What a change in helmet tech and so good to have an internal sun visor, as well as the anti-fog.

Comfortable enough for me on longer rides. No complaints as yet!
Comfy but noisy
24 August 2023 by David W
Nicely made and a comfy fit for my head shape. However, after my previous Shoei helmets this one is just too noisy and I cannot recommend it.
Adding to my X-Lite Collection
13 May 2023 by Paul F
I tried this helmet on in the SBS Boston store along with a few others from various other brands. It was immediately obvious that this helmet was far superior to the others and the only one with a fog resistant sun visor. The included pinlock was also really useful. It's light, quiet, comfortable with really useful features. A very slight negative would be that it doesn't have huge amounts of ventilation from what I can tell after 750 miles of use but it's not serious enough to complain too much. I added the N-Com B601 bluetooth intercomm kit which prooved really useful. I'm really happy with this set up and it will be my main road helmet from now on.
Quality control
26 February 2023 by Richard B
After checking over the helmet I found it had a fault in the carbon under the lacquer, so I returned it to Leeds branch which they arranged for a replacement. I received the new helmet in good time to find this had the same fault but more of them. I returned it to Leeds branch to which the sales person said "because it's hand made you will always get faults in carbon"????? I said can I have a replacement, he arranged for another to be sent. I received the new one which I found to be the original one I returned as it had the fault in the exact same place! I've kept the original helmet and put a sticker over the fault as I got fed up constantly returning.

Pretty good helmet
02 February 2023 by Tony S
Normally I use shoei GT air but thought I'd try this as a lower priced option. The build quality isn't as good, especially the cheek pads, but it's ok for the money. It feels light on using despite the actual weight. Struggling with my glasses more than with the shoei. Overall it's ok, and fair value for money.
X-lite x 903
09 December 2022 by Ian R
I tried my friends x lite x 903 on and wanted one instantly, I had a Arai RX7V which for me found a little heavy and noisy. The x-lite is so comfortable and love the visor system and very easy to take the interior out. Just need to fit the N com 601 when I buy it which also looks very easy to do, top marks to sportsbikeshop from ordering to my house in the Isle of Man 2 days
Great looking

X-lite x903
25 August 2022 by Chris L
I chose this helmet because it had proper recesses in to fit an intercom which was easy by the way look good and very comfortable
25 August 2022 by Neil W
I Brought this helmet because its very similar to the more track orientated helmets that I usually buy, but with the bonus of having an internal dark visor (fed up riding home after sunset with dark visors) Its very well made, light weight and extremely comfortable, maybe not quite as quiet as the Bell it replaces but overall I'm very happy with my purchase. Size is spot on
X-Lite X903 Carbon - great helmet!
21 April 2022 by Iain M
I selected the X903 Ultra Carbon based on the reviews as I was looking for a helmet on the lighter side.
x-Lite sizing also suited me as their S is. 56-57 … other brands I have previously had tend to split 55-56/57-58
Initial impressions after a few days use are that the helmet is very comfortable, plenty of adjustment for the liner fit. Good for glasses as there is a removable pad to allow a good fit.
Gloss carbon finish is nice.
It is quiet, ( I always wear earplugs anyway), good visibility and both the sun and main visor work well.
Overall impressed and a competitive price from Sportsbikeshop so a good purchase.
