Feel the wind in your hair.

Rather than following the growing popularity of helmets that focus more heavily on aerodynamics than ventilation, Belgian-based Lazer chose to stay with a more classic design when constructing its Z1 MIPS Helmet, relying on extensive venting and MIPS protection to complement the helmet's featherweight construction. In a premium category that includes models like Giro's Synthe and POC's Octal Helmets, Lazer's lightest helmet design confidently carves its own space as a top-end racing and training helmet with the safety features and style to match.

As many of its counterparts do, the Z1 relies on a four-piece In-Mold polycarbonate outer shell and EPS foam lining to protect against initial impacts. Lazer extends the helmet's shell to enhance protection at the temples, a sensitive area that's especially vulnerable in crashes, and then adds a final inner layer of protection with MIPS technology. MIPS, or Multi Directional Impact Protection System, refers to the Swedish technology added to the helmet in the form of an inner basket that rotates slightly upon impact to absorb the brain-damaging rotational energy created in certain crashes.

Lazer's focus on creating a helmet that doesn't feel like a damp, confining lid on your head at speeds below 15mph led the brand to add a total of 31 vents to the Z1. It backed them up with efficient inner channeling, ensuring that air not only enters the helmet, but is actually able to circulate and cool your head on long, hot climbs once it does.

As you'd expect from a helmet of this pedigree, pre-ride fit adjustments and fine tuning of both the helmet and its straps are easy with the use of Lazer's Advanced Rollsys retention system. You can also choose to add Lazer's compatible aeroshell around the outside of the Z1 when the seasons change — it will efficiently block out icy gusts of air, turning the helmet into a capable four-season addition to your kit.

Phenomenal Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

After 30 years using top of the line helmets, the Lazer Z1 is a dramatic improvement on all others. It fits better and is really roomy, rollsys is easier to adjust with no pressure points and the Z1 covers more head area front and back. Given the coverage area it's really lightweight and the airflow is exceptional.

I never thought of helmet accessories to use on the bike. Yeah, we all have a helmet bag but that's about it. Lazer takes it to a whole new level with the Z1. Magneto sunglasses completely eliminate long ride temple soreness and behind ear chafing. The Aeroshell is the best winter windshell ever for a helmet. Best of all, LifeBEAM eliminates a the bother of a HRM chest strap and is more accurate. Finally, the Cappucinolock gives a tiny bit of lightweight security for mid-ride "coffee" stops.

Yeah, I'm a geek and I love my fully accessorized Lazer Z1 MIPS.

Light, airy, and very comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Size Bought: Large

I love this helmet because it is light, very-well ventilated, and offers superior protection MIPS technology, while also being the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. The straps are durable and comfortable against the skin, unlike many other helmets that have thin and uncomfortable straps (looking at you, Giro). The Rollsys fit system is superb; it makes it easy to get the perfect fit, even while riding. This helmet is not the cheapest, but you are getting a premium product.

Also included are a nice storage bag, replacement inner pads, and optional magnets for integrating with Lazer's Magneto sunglasses.

First Lazer helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I currently own a Giro Aeon and Specialized Prevail helmet and was looking for something a little different. I decided to give the Lazer Z1 MIPS a shot and am happy that I did. It is definitely light enough for me and it's a little more compact than some of the others that I own. That is, it is not so bulky. It is actually easier to peer back over your shoulder to look at oncoming traffic. The fit is not perfect for me until I tighten the retention system then it feels fine. It almost seems to run a little small at first. It ventilates very well and am happy that it is relatively quiet regarding wind noise (that is an issue for me).

Very comfortable helmet

This is the first 'premium' helmet I have ever owned. I have always worn Giro, and currently own an Atmos II helmet. While light and cool, the Atmos can become uncomfortable on longer rides. Not so with the Lazer! It is so comfortable, it really does not even seem like it is there. Perfect fit on my not so perfect noggin. The straps are also a big improvement over the less expensive Giro. They lay perfectly flat and adjust easily for a great fit. The only shortcoming with this helmet may be in the aero department. It is designed to work during the slower speeds while climbing, and it does ventilate very well. On the flat, fast (21+mph) roads, I do notice quite a lot of wind noise. I suspect that some increased drag might be the result of the great venting. I plan to try another helmet when speed is needed on the flats, the Lazer Z1 will be on my head in the hills and when the ride is long!
And of note: Protection with the Lazer Z1 appears to be far better than any other helmet I have ever used. And, it looks great!

Very light

Excellent ventilation, hardly notice it's on your head. MIPS doesn't hamper fit, nice esthetics, good choice of options.

Love it!

I currently own Lazer Genesis helmet which I needed to replace after I was involved in a bike accident. I got hit by pick up truck on my left side of my body and landed on my right side of my body and banged my lower right side of head on the pavement. Thankfully I survived crash. The design of this helmet should cover most of the head. Love the design and the extra room around the ear to wear my prescription sunglasses. The size of the helmet runs a little smaller due to MIPS layer. I had to return for a size large, and even this size fits perfectly and does not feel big like the Genesis.

Best MIPS helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've been riding with Lazer helmets for about 15 years and this addition feels just like my old Helium. I tried several other MIPS type helmets and found there was too much movement. This one is no different feeling than my none MIPS Lazer and that's a good thing. This is a super fitting helmet my only complaint is the tighting barrel is not centered correctly and is a bit hard to adjust. It wasn't enough for the bother of a return. I'd highly recommend it.

superb fit

I have owned 3 helmets over the past year, and a different helmet every year previously. They included Bell, Giro, Smith, Garneau... But I have to say that the fit to the R1 beat them all. My head can be a little hard to fit, not the size, I'm always a S, they just don't fit perfect, they are ok, but the Z1 set a new level in fit and comfort. I would definitely recommend the Z1!

An upgrade!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I had been riding in an older Lazer on the road bike for a few years, and was having a hard time giving it up. I ended up getting one of these (MIPS was a big selling point) and haven't been happier. Besides having new padding that has reduced sweat in my eyes and made my head more comfy, the helmet also has a great hi-viz color and style to protect me while riding in higher traffic areas.
I have yet to ride it without a buff or cap underneath due to the season, but I have no reservations about the ventilation.

A great value!

Great Helmet!

Had a bad fall recently and blew up my old helmet so I needed to search for a new one. I wanted a MIPS helmet (why not?) so tried this and the Giro Synthe. Both were light but this fit better. The roll system is a breeze and located in a good spot on the top so adjusting it on the fly is easier. The fitting system also snugs the sides to give it a totally adjustable fit. It also feels lighter on the head and after a few rides has great ventilation. I have had Giro,Bell and now the Lazer high end helmets but this is the best helmet I have ever worn. only complaint is the strap could use a soft cover for under the chin. It also comes with a cover so looking forward to using it in the rain and next winter!

Top quality helmet that stands out.

The Lazer Zed-One MIPS helmet is the latest offering from our European friends. Up until now, my favorite helmet has been the Kask line of products. The Z1 is quite a bit lighter and more breathable than the Vertigo. Although to be fair the Z1 doesn't have the

Non-MIPS crash experience

*My non-MIPS Z1 input, MIPS :::might::: have helped:

I have had the sad experience of testing the Z1 to the limit. In addition to all the other positive remarks below, I would add that it's a winner in the safety department. The extra protection provided by the additional temporal coverage is a great feature, as is the Rigidity Brace System. My Z1 cracked in multiple spots, but stayed in one piece. I walked away (well... i was driven away) with a minor concussion. I would have been interested to see how things might have turned out with the MIPS version now available, but I'm happy to be here : ) I definitely "Put it through the wringer"!
