Z1 MIPS Helmet

One of our favorite lids we carry is the Z1 MIPS Helmet from Belgian based brand Lazer. It might not be the lightest or the most aero, however, its classic looks, MIPS protection, large and numerous vents, and at 190 grams, still plenty light weight, creates a combination of features that take it straight to the top. There's no shortage of fine helmets in the premium category range and a bevy of Lazer specific details means this helmet holds its own as a top-end racing and training helmet with safety and styling 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 effectively block out icy gusts of air, turning the helmet into a capable four-season addition to your kit.

  • A fantastic all-around premium helmet from Lazer
  • MIPS protection decreases rotational energy in certain impacts
  • T-pro protection offers additional protection in the temple area of the head
  • 31 vents keep you cooler on summer climbs
  • Worn to multiple professional victories
  • Top-mounted Advanced Rollsys retention system offers easy horizontal and vertical adjustment

Love it

It's expensive, but I like it.
And the delivery was fast.

Comfy but heavy

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

190g? Try 296.

Good to know the weight! I had 290gm helmet n it gave me headaches. Was going to purchase a medium and was hoping for a sub 230gm. 60gm makes a difference on long rides.

Unanswered Question

Is the yellow fluorescent?

Good Helmet

  • Fit: True to size

I already have a Blade model. The Z1 at the price was a no brainer.

A winner

  • Size Bought: Medium

Wanted a helmet a little more noticeable than the white I usually buy. The flash orange and white fit the bill without looking like a traffic cone. An added bonus is the coolness and amazing fit... didn't expect that. Bought the same size I have owned in Bells and Giros- size seems to be the same.

Excellent comfortable helmet

Very comfortable to wear; I forget it's on. Quite cool in the summer heat.

this is my second helmet,fits very well with a lot of ventilation to keep you head cool,well made with a lot it should take a hard impact to the ground

Oh so Euro.

I haven't yet tested the Z1's protective qualities, but that's not really the point of cycling helmets. The real point is to look Euro—otherwise, we'd all wear full-face moto lids. Ever since Tommeke wore a rainbow version of its predecessor in '06, the Z1 has been the most Euro helmet available. Do yourself a favor, and get the helmet that will make you want to ride rather than the helmet that every other cyclist on your Tuesday night crit startline is wearing.

I've worn a medium in Giro, Bell, and Orbea helmets. Lazer's medium fits me the same.

Super comfortable

You can tell this is a quality helmet as soon as you get your hands on it. The straps are excellent and sit very flat on the side of your face and the rollsys adjustment works great. The only issue I can see is the mips version is more snug than the non mips version so if you are on the borderline between sizes it might be tight. Also I see the shaping of the helmet inside is more for a round head shape instead of a more oval shape.

Great Fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have had Giro Aeon and Specialized Echelon helmets, but nothing fits nearly as well as this Lazer Z1. It really feels like it just melts onto your head and you don't notice it. I needed a new helmet and figured I should go with the MIPS tech, because, why not go all out when it comes to protecting your brain. The Lazer is high quality, light weight, but it is all about the great fit. The dial on the top of the helmet takes getting used to if you have had helmets with the dial in the back, but you don't really need to mess with it once set.

Phenomenal Helmet

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

  • 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!
