Description

Cooler comfort for the long road ahead.

Built with the same Rollsys retention system as the Tardiz helmet, the Lazer Helium Helmet is a marvel of comfort and security. And while it shares a similar appearance with the Genesis, the Helium has a far more sculpted shape. It also incorporates an in-molded shell portion that wraps around into the interior of the helmet's brow. Basically, this is an added safety detail that prevents the helmet from chunking when your head hits the ground. This feature also helps protect the edge of the helmet foam from damage in your gear bag during transport.

For improved crash protection, the Helium uses a woven composite, let's affectionately call it silver carbon, to span the bridges between the main ribs of the helmet. Lazer calls it RBS (Rigidity Brace System). We could perhaps think of better acronyms, but we think that what actually matters is that the composite adds some serious strength to the design, while nonetheless being a similar weight as the Genesis. Part of this weight savings comes from the use of dual-density EPS foam with denser, stronger foam in the areas of greater likelihood of impact.

The Lazer Helium has 19 huge vents, so airflow won't be a problem on hot days. Additionally, the helmet pads are made with X-Static, a fabric with silver treated threads, so they're antimicrobial for a less stinky helmet. As we mentioned before, the Helium benefits from Lazer's Rollsys retention system. It has a wheel tucked into the very top of the helmet that takes up slack in the cradle system via a thin cable. The Rollsys system creates one of the most even fits of any helmet on the market. In fact, depending on your fit, it will better accommodate the difference between cycling cap and no cap compared to nearly any other helmet out there. And when you have a clean shaven head like Team Katusha's Sergey Ivanov, a cycling cap is an often, but not always needed, accessory during the spring season. The cradle at the back of the head drops securely beneath your occipital bump, and since the wheel for the retention system is at the top and not in the back, there's room for ponytails, and even Vladimir Karpet's signature mullet.

The Lazer Helium Helmet is available in the sizes Small, Medium, and Large and in the colors Black/white, Black/green, Black/red, and Black/cyan. Each color has matching web straps and the helmet comes with its own fleece lined storage bag.

Please note that for those of you with large heads, the Helium will be a welcome relief. The Large fits a 59cm head with room to spare.

Helium Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Actually I have the exact opposite feeling as the reviewer below-for me I love this helmet and the strap system works great. I have had this helmet now for about 2 months and have never had to adjust the straps once since my initial setup. It did take a bit of tweaking for the first ride but since then this helmet rocks. I love the magnetic buckle-can even ride without shaving and not get the buckle caught in my whiskers!! Seriously the helmet fit is amazing. I was just thinking today on my windy ride what a great and comfortable fit this helmet has. I have been a loyal Gyro rider for years but this is the best helmet I have ever had. The sliver threaded pads seemed a bit scratchy the first time I put them on but they really help in drying the pads out after a sweaty ride and keeping the oder and grime buildup down-I would highly recommend this helmet. We will see how it holds up to our Seattle rain soon enough!

Great helmet but terrible strap design

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I loved this helmet. Great fit, easy to adjust and great ventilation. But it is as if the Lazer engineers took off for August vacation when it was time to design the helmet straps. The straps are just plain terrible. The magnetic buckle is neat but inconvenient, the side adjustment is dysfunctional, and the straps are impossible to get tight enough so that they don't flap in the wind.
