With a long history in road racing that dates back to 1919, Lazer has had plenty of time to refine its range of helmets. It comes as no surprise, then, that its newest road and mountain bike helmets are packed with features.
Its new Impala helmet is aimed at the top end of the market, with a host of features. Available in both MIPS and non-MIPS versions, the helmet has 22 large vents, an adjustable visor with goggle parking, an action-camera mount designed to break away in an impact, and Lazer’s Advanced Turnfit System that adjusts the helmet’s fit.
The Century lid is Lazer’s latest iteration of the model and claims to draw on 100 years of experience.
As with the new mountain-biking helmets, the Century is packed with features including Twistcap that lets the wearer change how much air can enter the helmet, an integrated rear light and internal air channels to help keep your head cool.
Also available in MIPS and non-MIPS, the helmet features Lazer’s Advanced Turnfit System.
Lazer has also been working hard to develop its Autofit system, which adjusts the helmet’s size to its wearer automatically.
The system delivers constant and equal tension across the helmet and means that one helmet can fit a wide range of head sizes.
Watch our video where Chris from Lazer explains the features found on Lazer’s Impala and Century helmets, as well as the Autofit system.
Alex started racing downhill at the tender age of 11, later going on to compete internationally representing the UK. At 19, he moved to the Alps to pursue a career as a bike bum clocking up moon-mileage riding the famous tracks in and around Morzine, France. In that time, he broke more bikes than he can remember. Alex then moved back to the UK when he landed a job working for Mountain Biking UK as their Features Editor — BikeRadar's sister title — as their features editor. Since working for MBUK, Alex's focus has moved to towards bike tech and he now wants to find out what bikes and components represent the best value for money regardless of discipline. Alex's current fleet includes his trusty commuter bike, a 2017 Marin Gestalt 3, his long term Orange Stage 6 RS enduro bike, a used and abused 2015 GT Sanction Pro, a Scott Voltage YZ dirt jump bike and a Deluxe Pro 2 BMX.
