Lazer Helmets debuts snap-on Aero Shell cover pre-Flanders

The snap on polycarbonate shell will be available for sale later this year

Katusha team riders will arrive at the 2010 Ronde van Vlaanderen ready for inclement weather with Lazer's new Aero Shell helmet cover. 

The snap-on polycarbonate skin easily and securely attaches to the company's top-end Helium model with no tools or fasteners – yet is removable on the fly with one hand – and seals all of the upper vents from both wind and water, thus largely eliminating the need for additional hats or skullcaps in many conditions.

Lazer has equipped the team with special versions of the Aero Shell complete with commemorative 'Ronde van Vlaanderen' graphics but production versions will ultimately come only in clear.  Other colors may be pending depending on consumer demand. 

Retail price will range around US$20 and we anticipate these may prove quite popular come 'cross season.

James started as a roadie in 1990 with his high school team but switched to dirt in 1994 and has enjoyed both ever since. Anything that comes through his hands is bound to be taken apart, and those hands still sometimes smell like fork oil even though he retired from shop life in 2007. He prefers manual over automatic, fizzy over still, and the right way over the easy way.
  • Discipline: Mountain, road, cyclocross
  • Preferred Terrain: Up in the Colorado high-country where the singletrack is still single, the dirt is still brown, and the aspens are in full bloom. Also, those perfect stretches of pavement where the road snakes across the mountainside like an artist's paintbrush.
  • Beer of Choice: Mexican Coke
  • Location: Boulder, Colorado, USA
