Lazer have totally revamped their helmet range with an innovative fit system that makes the Genesis RD a top-end performer.
The full coverage shell with a dropped rear isn’t light or low-profile, but gives a safe, protected feel and there’s no vision intrusion. The distinctive cutout design also creates a range of vent shapes and sizes for all wind speeds and angles.
The fit of a helmet is typically controlled at the back, but Lazer buck that trend and use a wheel on top and to the rear of the Genesis. This results in easy fine adjustments – even when you’re riding – and is all part of Lazer’s unique Rollsys cradle fitting system.
Rather than wrapping horizontally round the occipital lump at the back of your skull, twin loops cradle the rear sides of your head and tighten with a roller, creating an outstandingly snug and secure, ponytail-friendly grip that allows for the shape of your head as well as its size.
The large vents provide excellent ventilation, while the lid also meets a full set of standards. A crash replacement helmet can be bought with a 50 percent discount.
