Yes these are all the helmets i have personally weighed in their respective sizes. Have owned each of them at various points in time. I think weights will vary depending on size as well for the same helmets

Albion special 98 mens standard Titanium grill: 680g
Ayrtek PremierTek Titanium (Adult): 743g
GM zelos geo helmet Steel (senior): 920g
GM Purist Geo (Standard Adult): 700g
Gray Nicolls Test opener Steel mens M: 820g
Gray Nicolls Omega XRD steel Mens: 870g
Masuri Vision series Test Titanium mens (58-60mm): 860g
Masuri Vision series Test Steel mens (58-60mm): 950g
Shrey Masterclass Air 2.0 titanium mens (58-60mm): 750g

I tried a few helmets and weighed them here (added to the list) http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=40141.15

Notice how light the GM is and that the top end Shrey was a fair bit above their claimed weight.

Shrey Masterclass Air 2.0 titanium mens (58-60cm): 750g
Shrey Masterclass Air Titanium (Standard Adult): 833g

Interesting thing to note. The new masuri VS elite titanium i just ordered weighs less than what was previously posted. Is it possible that same sized helmets from the same brand vary in weight that much? Or have they done something to reduce the weight? I think so as the swapa band in this new one is now the same as OS helmets which is lighter.

There will be some natural variation as the finished weight can depend upon how much glue has been used to stick the EPS liner to the shell, the cloth used to cover it with, some tolerance in the Ti grille welds etc
