Help,wifes helmet too heavy

Just got back from 2900 mile trip to Maine.Used our HJC shorty helmets because wife's neck gets really sore wearing our Nolan 41's with our headsets in them.Anything out there in a super light 3/4 helmet.She weighed the two and the HJC was about a pound lighter.We did 2 1/2 hr ride today with the Nolans on and she had too much neck pain.Gotta figure this one out before heading out to Tucson next month.Thanks

Suomy makes the lightest non carbon fiber helmets I know of. As a bonus they also have some of the coolest designs .
