Difference in weight between steel and titanium grills
« on: September 04, 2016, 03:59:51 PM »

Someone local is selling an Ayrtek with a titanium grill and was thinking of buying of it as I think the one on my helmet is the steel version. Just wondering on the relative weights to see if it's worth it?

Yeh also quite a difference in terms of raw material cost when it comes to comparing steel v Titanium which is why the Ti grille are priced st 65.00.

Will have a new batch of Fixed position titanium grills landing pre-Xmas if anyone is looking to upgrade 👍
