Item # LZR000Q

Lighten up.

Enhanced ventilation, a revamped retention system, and additional temporal protection are just a few of the features packed into Lazer's new top-shelf Z1 Helmet. No stranger to outfitting the best cyclists in the world with head protection, the Belgian manufacturer builds from the proven Helium and Genesis designs to deliver its lightest and best-fitting helmet to date.

First glance of the Z1 reveals a deeper shell structure along the temporal zone than that of the Helium, in what Lazer calls its T-Pro design. Standing for "temporal protection," T-Pro adds material around the temples, which then cuts away at the frontal zone to keep vision unobstructed. Constructing this area, along with the rest of the lid, is Lazer's proven RBS (Rigidity Brace System). Lazer likens it to a car's roll cage, in that during a crash the cracked EPS stays together to provide some additional protection.

In terms of ventilation, the Z1 has 31 strategically placed vents, allowing massive doses of cooling air to flow in the front of the helmet and over the head, before exiting out the back. Not surprisingly, this ventilation design contributes to the Z1's claimed 220 gram weight (size medium) which is a 40 gram savings over the Helium in the same size.

Lazer also spent time rethinking its retention system, which now adds even more adjustability for an ultra-precise fit. Called the ARS (Advanced Rollsys System) it features a top-mounted dial connected to a band that tightens symmetrically, evenly distributing pressure across the head. Furthering this is its "head basket" cradle at the back of the head, featuring five up and down positions for an optimal hold.

The Lazer Z1 Helmet is available in sizes Small to Large and in the colors Blue Silver, Flash Orange/blue, Matte Black, Vanilla Grey, White/red, and White/silver.

It's all about the fit

I tried every make and model out there - Giro, Specialized, Bell, POC and this Lazer fitted better than all the rest. Love it. Highly recommend.

Comfy and light but a little loose

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Medium

I ordered the Medium which is typically my size in every helmet, this one is a little bigger than I would have expected and there doesn't seem to be a way to really tighten it up too much. Other than that it seems well made and is very light and comfortable, with a bandana or cap underneath it's a great fit for me.

Sandy, At Lazer we would prefer you get the correct size! Why don't you call me at our office and we can discuss how to solve that for you! Peter

What a change...

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

I have had this for two weeks. It is a little over 100 grams lighter than what I am used to and that difference is everything. The helmet simply disappears now and I feel nothing. It is easily adjusted, fits comfortably and is simply not noticed. I have been on two 5+ hour rides plus several shorter rides.

Great fitting helmet

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ordered this and Giro at the same time- kept the Laser. It's a very well thought helmet. Excellent fit, maybe one of the best fitting helmets I have ever owned. It also has a very clever adjustment system with a "roller" on the top of the helmet that can be adjusted while wearing the helmet.

I agree with you, the Advanced Rollsys Adjustment System is a great feature. My wife loves it!

Lightweight but white/blue looks cheap

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Have cobalt blue bike and this helmet caught my eye. The white outside finish is dull instead of glossy and the blue part is simply blue dyed styrofoam which is ok but it reminded me of standard blue styofoam instead of a unique blue finish to the inside. For the same amount of money, would prefer LG course helmet which is similar in weight and size.

You should see the new blue black version shipping into stores next month!

Lazer Stalwart

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

I've been a Lazer fan for years and wore the Helium and Genesis before moving onto the Z1. I'm a huge fan. Fits my abnormally large head quite well in large and the strap/retention system stays in place and is easy to adjust.

Does this helmet have the same fit as the lazer o2? I like the shape of the lazer helmets but do not like the straps. Are the straps smaller / softer on the z1?

I returned a Z1 for this reason. I hate feeling choked by the strap. It is too short and not adjustable.

best fitting helmet I've owned

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

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!

*Crash tested*....unfortunately.

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

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"!

*Crash tested*....unfortunately.

Ed, Are you okay and riding again? Have we replaced your Z1 on a crash program yet? New colors coming this month!!! New Bullet also shipping soon. Feel free to contact me at Lazer USA (call Shimano 800 number).

Is the "Flash Yellow" Lazer z1 color really more "Floro Green" than yellow? Looks more green than yellow on your site? Wondering if if matches my Tarmac stripe?

Hi Christian! Having owned the Flash yellow Z1, I can say it's really close to your Tarmac colors. Mine matched my other fluo-yellow stuff really nicely.

Lazer Z1; no other helmet for me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used the Z1 on road and MTB and love it. When temps drop I add the aeroshell and I don't even need a beanie (sometimes ear covers). This is my 2nd Z1, just because I race for different teams on road/MTB/triathlon and wanted a different color scheme. Most recently wore this helmet for Xterra WC in Maui, and it gave me no issues, barely knew it was there.

lazer z1 helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

had never tried this brand of helmet but real like it fits well and has a lot of security when you are riding down the rode

Great Helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my favorite helmet to date. I've used all the usual suspects (Giro Aeon, Specialized Prevail) but the Z1 fits better and is a lot cooler. The buckle stays put and the roller thing on the top makes adjustment easy. Top piece of equipment, worth the price.

Does this helmet have an up/down adjustment similar to Giro, Kask, etc? Also, can you comment on the stiffness of the Rollsys dial? It looks as though it would feel loose. I'm just more familiar with the loud ratcheting of Giro adjustments.

Best Answer

Derek - it does have an up/down adjustment but it does not sit as low on the back of the head as a Giro/Kask helmet does (i've owned them as well). the Rollsys is actually pretty stable on mine, i may make minor adjustments before a ride, but have not had a problem with this during a ride, nothing different then the other helmets i have owned/tried.

When will you have the aero/ rain shell accessory?

We don't have plans to stock those but can special order them, Email me if you would like me to do that for you.

Is there a MIPS version of the Z1 coming?

Right now the only road option with MIPS is the Helium.

Lazer Z1 Helmet Review

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a beautiful well built and detailed helmet. The fit system is well thought out and second to none. Plenty of large vents for good air flow. I am a Giro Aeon believer, but I would give the Lazer a leg up.

Weight issues

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

I just received my size large Z1 in white silver.' Very nice looking and very well made. My large weight is 282 grams on a certified scale-only 12 grams over 270 grams on helmet tag. My 2010 Lazer Genesis weight is 354 grams-nice weight loss! I also weighed a new Giro Aeon large that did not fit me-256 grams. The Aeon does not have the quality look or feel of a Z1. This is my third Lazer helmet . No outside use yet- too cold in Chicago!
