The previous 02 helmet was pretty basic, but this new one puts Lazer right into the premier league. The hardshell is cleanly moulded over the poly body, with enough wraparound to keep it protected from everyday knocks.
There’s an impressive amount of airflow through the 24 vents (including big exhaust ports) to keep your head super-cool. There’s no intrusion into your forward vision when you’re in a deep tuck, either.
At 318g, it’s no heavier than the old model and it also shares the same internal reinforcing armature and Rollsys fit cradle. This uses a barrel adjuster in the top of the helmet shell to tighten a looping wire that controls brow band diameter.
The rest of the uni-size lid gets slim CoolMax sweat shifting pads to keep everything anchored and aerated. The price is good for the performance.
