Light Weight full face helmet

I want to get a full face helmet thats somewhat cheap, but I don't want an extra 15lbs on my head when I ride. Whats a good cheap and light helmet? Pref black/red to match my bike..

How about this one?

Well the remedy is 37oz and the azonic is 38oz. So I would rather stick with the azonic as it is cheaper, and I like the matte instead of the gloss. Anyone know the average weight of these is? Thanks guys.

I'm picking up a Remedy this week. I really never had a need for one but with the new lift assisted park opening up in a couple of weeks I think I may get some use out of it.
