Description

Why We Like The G1 MIPS Helmet

A redesigned fit system and improved ventilation, as well as a sleeker profile than previous models, make the G1 feel light as air while riding, with the protection we need on the road. Lazer’s Rollsys retention system provides a 360degree fit and comfort in a lightweight design that adjusts from the top of the helmet, placing it out of the way of caps or ponytails. The 22 vents pull air through the helmet’s shell to both ventilate and cool as well as improve aerodynamics for every advantage on race day. For added peace of mind, a MIPS layer in the G1 redirects rotational forces in the event of an impact.

  • Superlight road helmet with MIPS protection
  • Advanced Rollsys system adjusts for 360degree comfort
  • Compatible with Lazer’s Aeroshell for aerodynamic and weather advantage
  • 22 vents enhance cooling by pulling air through helmet
  • Includes race and comfort pad options to suit your preference

What helmet is perfect?

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

No mushroom effect (which is big) and it is very light. As others have mentioned, the pads don't do a great job of absorbing moisture, but it's ok. Initially, I was concerned about the retention system and adjustment mechanism, but after 4-5 rides I've reconsidered and like it: its just more subtle to manipulate, but holds just fine. (We'll see over time). I give it five stars because of the no mushroom effect and very subjective style consideration. I understand it also has the highest impact rating according the some work done by Virginia Tech on helmet performance (can find online): hope I don't have to find out. Good luck

Super light helmet. Wore it for a century a week out of the box and nearly forgot it was there by the end of the day. Not the best at absorbing sweat but no helmet really is if I'm being extra picky. Would definitely recommend. Plus it's #1 on VT ratings.

Love the new G1. I've only used a couple times but am pleased with both fit and looks. The weight while holding and wearing is impressively light. Sizing was my only issue. My pre Shimano Genesis was a medium, but the cm range was different. I am a 56cm which fell in the middle of the old 52/58 range while new med is 55/59. The medium fit but still had the mushroom look and it was noticeably larger than old Genesis. Manufacturer suggests if between sizes, size down. They were spot on and I have the low profile helmet I was looking for. Still have enough room for my cool weather headwear even though I'm now wearing a size small. Haven't had an issue with helmet tilting back and rolley's system works well for me. I like the helmet coverage and the minimal G1 profile. Chin strap is thin and soft but could be a little longer.

I am also exactly 56cm.....so you feel like the small fit you well? I currently have the orange one in a Medium, and I guess it fits ok....but I definitely notice movement, especially on the MTB. I was considering getting a SM to try, but figured it would be too small.

This is my current daily helmet and I'm mostly happy with it. It's lightweight and feels good on my head. My head circumference is 57cm and the medium fits perfectly. The retention system works fine and is easy to adjust while riding. The straps are thin and lay mostly flat on along my head. My biggest gripe about this helmet is that the sweat pads along the forehead area are good for only the smallest amount of perspiration. On a big climb when the sun is out I am seeing and feeling the sweat drip from the inner edge of the helmet above my brow and right into my sunglasses or directly into my eyes. I have to wear a cycling cap or a thin headband, but then my head gets kind of too hot.

Lol had the same experience with mine. Are we being to demanding? Have to see longer term.

I've used Giro helmets exclusively. I've always had trouble with the lock systems breaking after a few months. As stated everywhere, the helmet is very light and has great airflow. The retention takes some getting used to, it is not skull crushingly tight. That's a plus on long rides. I wear cycling caps and the fit is just as good with them on. I have a roundish bald head and was able to dial is a great fit.. Personally, I'm not concerned about the lack of glasses storage, they should be protecting your eyes not perched for style points. I deducted a star for some imperfect trimming and finish flaws. At this pricepoint, it should be near perfect. For those who do not find it fitting out of the box, lift the plastic piece with the serial number decal on it. There is a 5 level adjustment there. See my pic.

OMG you've just solve my fit problem! How is one supposed to know about that hidden slide? The thing fits perfect now - 6 months later!

I've been wearing this helmet for over a month now and really love this helmet. Previous helmets owned include the Specialized Prevail II and the Kask Protone. The sizing on this helmet seems to be the same as the Specialized Prevail II and the fit around the skull is closer to the Protone; making it the best of both worlds for my head shape. I found the Prevail II to be tight front to back and the Protone to hug my skull well. But I couldn't fit cycling caps or head warmers under my Protone M and could under my Prevail II M. This helmet fits all the caps or warmers I need and still fits great with no additional headwear at all. I love how you can forget it's on your head due to how light it is and that fact it has the Virginia Tech 5 Star helmet safety rating. I got the purple to match my violet Chris King bits and pieces on my Moots. I love the iridescence of the purple color too; subtle but flashy.

I really like this helmet. It is very light and has great ventilation for SE Texas weather. I agree with others that the retention system is a little weird and the MIPS system liner doesn't allow it to "feel" like a good fit using the retention system. But i will say that making sure the chin strap and the internal shell adjustment (the one that for lack of a better way of saying it rolls the helmet forward or back relative to MIPs liner) i was able to get a snug fit. That fit was put to the test when I was involved in a high speed crit wreck and the helmet did its job. This will be my second purchase of this helmet.

Excellent Helmet

I'm usually on the edge of a medium or large. The medium fits perfect. I've got a month and 600miles in this helmet. I forget it's on. Very light. The fit system adjusts best off your head. It works fine for small adjustments while on. Big ones not so. I love the tight profile. It doesn't look huge on your melon. The mips is integrated well. I've not done a hot ride in it yet but judging by the airflow, it should cool well. I've ridden almost every major helmet brand and this is a great helmet.

i keep things for a LONG time, even repairing 20+ y/o capilene or replacing my locally made Moonstone goretex jacket after more yrs w an arc'teryx alpha sv. So, yes this is spendy. I came to this both as highest rated and light. I cldnt figure out the knurl on top immediately until i watched what it did when off my head. after i found out how it cynches up i found the way it gently hugs yr head all the way around to be like a dream. i also bought the correct aeroshell to clip over. i expect to be using this gorgeous helmet for at least a decade.

I had researched this purchase for a good year or more looking for the best non mushroom helmet for my big noggin. It did have a low profile, tighter fit, which was good. However I have to confirm what another reviewer wrote. The tightening fit mechanism didn't work for me. I couldn't get it to fit as snug as the standard wire systems. Also, the space above my ear to the bottom of the helmet was excessively large leaving a huge gap in protection. Maybe it was just my noggin, but I'm pretty sure I read a similar review that mentioned the same issue.

Can't beat the weight and ventilation on this helmet but the fit and styling suffer in my view. My Smith and POC look and fit better, but are both hot for LA riding. This Lazer has a minimalist profile that looks a little funky on my head, but it is certainly the coolest and lightest helmet I've ever owned. Everything else will feel heavy once you wear this thing.

After seeing these on the road and hearing positive comments I went with the G1 MIPS when it was time to repalce my 10 year old Spesh road helmet. Unfortunately none of my glasses will stash in the vents and the retention dial on top (or whatever it is called) is a major downgrade from the dial in the back of every other helmet I have had (road or mtb) the past fifteen years. I can never seem to get it to really snug up and turning the dial repeatedly makes very little change in adjustment. I guess if I had a ponytail or something having the dial on top would make sense but at least it should function. Chalk up one win in the looks department, provided you haven't tried to stash your Oakley's and have them protruding awkwardly from the vents, cantilevered out but just out of sight.

G1 has a head basket featuring vertical adjustment which ships in the box in the highest position. Pulling the head basket down applies additional hold on the base of the skull which should give you that “hold” you’re seeking.

The main selling point for me wast the Virginia Tech rating, plus that it fits. I got this after returning a POC helmet that just did not fit. This G1 MIPS fits much better. It looks similar to other helmet brands I've owned (Bell, Giro). The fastening dial is easy to use at least when new out of the box, hopefully it stays that way. The contour of the helmet is higher where it crosses the forehead, which I don't understand unless that is to appease the type of customer who would otherwise tip the helmet back (incorrect) like a baseball cap. I prefer the lines of a helmet that come straight across but it's not bad. It does not seem any lighter than other helmets, but it's a good weight.

3-Stars because cannot get it to "tighten-up" to the point I prefer....having used the Lazer Z1 MIPS (my favorite go to helmet) for over a year, was stoked about the potential of the G1....I would still recommend it because #1 - it's a Lazer, #2 - the Flo Orange is AWESOME -- it POPS...much like my Z1 Flo Yellow ... Hi-Viz is the way to go....#3 - LIGHT Weight is an understatement

This was one of the few higher end race helmets that actually fit my head. I have a 55 cm circumference head and most brands would recommend a size medium but when trying on I have to to size large and even that would be narrow and give me pressure points on the sides of my head on long rides. I wasn’t a fan on how it looked at first but when I was finally able to wear a size medium helmet that fit me just right it looked a lot better wearing it.

Has one of the highest ratings on the virgina tech test which is why i purchased it. I've gone on several long rides now and it's awesome. Similar to what others have said, you barely notice it on your head, it's that comfortable! Venting is also great, all rides in 90+ F weather and it ventilated extremely well. I will definitely be purchasing the aeroshell once it gets a bit cooler.

Pro's: Weight: very light Retention strap: adjusts from top of helmet--really cool Visibility: high vis orange is great Looks: looked awesome on Con's: Large did not fit my 60-61cm oval head. The restraining strap still had room to go out further it just did not feel good/right. As I'm reading the reviews and now experiencing trying on a couple of MIPS helmets--the MIPS inserts make the helmet smaller so definitely keep that in mind. The retention straps were very different from any helmet I've tried on before and definitely had a different feel. I think I could have gotten used to it had the fit been good.

I've been riding with the G1 for a month. It is very comfortable and super light. I have to touch it to convince myself it is there. I use a do-rag which I notice much more than the helmet.
