Enhanced protection


Lazer’s Helium Helmet is the pinnacle of comfort and security. It is somewhat heavier than other helmets in its class; however, you enjoy a considerable amount of additional protection.

At a listed weight of 260 g, “Helium” might not be the most appropriate name for this helmet. The truth is that you barely notice the additional weight; instead, what you notice is the incredible ventilation offered by the 19 large air vents that don the helmet and the comfortable fit.

In creating the Helium, Lazer has kept the great Rollsys retention system of their Genesis model meaning you will enjoy easy, single-handed adjustment as well as nearly full circumference coverage of your head. They did improve the system; however, making it significantly softer and added ventilation to the brow-pad to help dry sweat before it gets a chance to drip all over your sunglasses.

For added protection against impacts, Lazer has included a Rigidity Brace System. This means that the helmet’s foam density is adjusted at different parts of the helmet in order to afford better protection in the right places. In addition, an outer shell has been added over the helmet’s inner lip for added protection.

The Helium owes its comfortable feel, in no small part, to the very generous coverage offered by its X-Static pads. No lumps, no pressure points; only comfort.

There is no way to sugarcoat this: the Helium is a very pricey helmet. If you are willing to pay a little extra for a lot of protection then give the Helium a try.
