After testing the Lazer Z1 road helmet for a few months, it seems that the updated lid has been given the thumbs up from our Tech Editor Mike.
Only very recently launched, we’ve had a sample on test for a few months and it has proved to be excellent.
Lazer has tweaked the fit to make it slightly more European so it’s longer and thinner than other Lazer helmets — and it’s a big improvement.
At a nudge over 200 grams, the weight is competitive but it’s the additional features that make the Z1 a winner to us. Lazer is pioneering the Rollsys and T-Pro protection systems to increase safety rather than chase down every last gram.
As you’d expect from a helmet with this number of vents, cooling is on a par with other comparable lids, while the straps use a guide that manages to perform that simple task that so few seem able to achieve — and that’s to hold the straps flat to the head.
