Going fast is all about power, technique, and the perfect riding position. Keeping your posture small and your head down are key to having a good aerodynamic position on the bike. Head down Aerodynamics means the helmet will actually improve its performance when your head is down and your riding position is changed to a more aero style.
Lazer Wasp Air TT Helmet with IS (White/Black)
This product was added to our catalog on May 10, 2016.
The Lazer Wasp Air is a shorter version of the Wasp helmet designed to meet the needs of triathlon, track- and TT riders. Everything about the helmet is shaped around the rider’s position and finding the maximum aerodynamic gains.
The aerodynamic performance of the Wasp Air is the result of extensive wind tunnels research, scientific insight in aerodynamics and the use of mathematical models that allow Lazer to compute and optimize the shape of the helmet in the virtual environment.
The integrated lens is an integral part of the helmet and can be moved forward so that air can flow into the helmet when needed. This creates an airflow through the helmet with air passing over the rider’s head and out the two tail vents. A trip wire on the top of the surface of the Wasp creates micro vortices to assure for a smooth airflow over the tail of the helmet.
The Lazer advanced Turnfit® retention system makes sure the helmet is snug and comfortable on the head.
- IS (Inclination Sensor) system notifies via buzzing or sound when the helmet is out of position
- The movement range is easily set and reset via computer and USB
- Includes IS complete instructions and USB connection cable
- IS system is USB chargeable
- Removable lens is also adjustable to allow for air flow
- Advanced Turnfit retention system with vertically adjustable head basket
Fit System: ATS Advanced Turnfit System
Ventilation: 3 Vents
Weight: 375 g (S)
Certification: CE - CPSC - AS
Sizes: S / M-L
Adjustable Head Basket:
The adjustable head basket allows the back part of the rollsys® system (that grips the back of the head) to move up and down depending on the riders preference. This way the Rollsys® system can be adjusted even more too individual rider needs and can create even more comfort.
The ATS is a new interpretation of the classic Turnfit system. We have combined the traditional Turnfit dial system with the Rollsys head basket to create an even more effective retention system. A dial at the back of the helmet now controls a basket that grips a large part of back of the head. A quick turn of the ATS® dial makes sure the basket grips the back of the head for a snug yet comfortable fit that keeps the helmet firmly in place.
Lazer helmets are tested in a specifically designed 'vent tunnel'. This test measures the amount of air that is flowing over the head and in which specifc areas. That way we can effectively measure the ventilation a helmet offers. based on this testing we adjust the vent position and size of the vents to make sure we create products with good ventilation to make sure you can perform at top level.
All helmets are designed to be safe, but Lazer helmets are also designed to be fast. That is why our helmets are tested in wind tunnel facilities. They go through a varienty of test to measure the aerodynamic performance and improve it where possible.
The Rigidity Brace system is a reinforcement for a superior helmet resistance against multi impacts. This system is comparable with a roll cage in a racecar. In case of a crash this will keep the cracked EPS pieces together so the helmet still offers some form of protection. This system does not guarantee the effectiveness of a helmet after a crash, every helmet needs to be inspected carefully after a crash and in case of dents or cracks it should be replaced.
Aerodynamic means the helmet delivers a significantly better aerodynamic performance compared to standard road helmets. These aerodynamic results are measured with the use of a wind tunnel for maximum accuracy.
Head Down Aerodynamics:
Featherlight helmets are the lighest helmets of the Lazer range. They are so light and comfortable you will forget you are wearing them after a while.
Amateur riders, weekend warriors, seasoned professionals,… everybody is affected by fatigue during a ride, and the change in body posture it brings along with it. During a time trial or triathlon bike leg, this results is a less aerodynamic position on the bike and thus a slower ride. But how do you notice this change in body posture? Well, you couldn't up to now. But that has all changed with the arrival of the Lazer Inclination Sensor.
The Lazer Inclination Sensor is a body posture monitor that allows you to track your aerodynamic cycling posture in real time. The monitor tracks your head and helmet position and provides you with tactile or acoustic feedback when you are out of your optimal aerodynamic position.
Before using the monitor it should be calibrated towards your optimal aerodynamic cycling position. For the best result the calibration should take place in a wind tunnel with the help of aerodynamic experts. But it works just as well when you visit a training center or shop with experienced professionals to help you find that ideal aero position.
The monitor aims at making you aware of your head position while riding, and guiding you towards that sweet spot where you cheat the wind as best as possible.
