Lazer Z1 MIPS Road Helmet (Matte Black) (M)
Think about your current helmet; now imagine it lighter, with a more comfortable fit system, better ventilation, an additional (optional) aeroshell and improved side impact protection. That is what the Lazer Z1 offers.
Building on a long tradition of innovation, Lazer decided to combine all elements of a high performance helmet and push each feature as far as possible. It is the lightest helmet Lazer ever made without sacrificing style, safety or comfort. Styling wise it has the looks of a contemporary high performance road helmet with an integrated wing on the top of the helmet.
Additionally the MIPS system adds an additional safety aspect by introducing a low friction layer into the helmet. This layer can move relative to the helmet helping to absorb the rotational forces in case of a crash. This does not interfere with the existing protective capabilities of the helmet, it just adds to them.

Fit System: ARS Advanced Rollsys® retention system
Ventilation: 31 vents
Weight: 190g (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 fit of a helmet is important and adjusting this fit to your individual need is of equal importance for the comfort level of a helmet. To achieve a good fit Lazer has installed the ARS or Advanced Rollsys System in the helmet. The ARS is an upgraded version of the award winning Rollsys® System.
Compared to the standard fit systems the Advanced Rollsys system is a fully integrated mechanism which surrounds the head completely. By turning a smooth thumb wheel, situated on top of the helmet the system permits an accurate and progressive peripheral sizing adjustment. The fit of the helmet will symmetrically be tightened without any pressure points on the head.
The Advanced Rollsys system offers an innovative one hand use and is easy to handle even during riding. By taking away the retention system at the back the Advanced Rollsys system is also the perfect solution for people with a ponytail.
Magneto is an award winning and revolutionary sunglass/helmet interface that offers the user improved comfort and superior fit. Recognizing that traditional sunglass temples cause trouble for some wearers both in terms of fit, contact with the helmet’s retention system and added pressure to the side of the head at the contact points, Lazer has eliminated these temple pieces and replaced them with a clever magnetic attachment system. The helmet strap features two clips with a small piece of rubber-coated metal at the center, this allows for an attachment with magnets that are imbedded in two short tabs that connect to the sunglass lens.
The result is a secure fit of the lens on the face but with the ability for adjustment both up and down and forewords and backwards.
With Magneto in use there is no possibility for interference of the Rollsys® retention system and the side of the head is left unobstructed to keep cool. The absence of normal sunglass temples also results in very little pressure on the user’s head which eliminates headaches and fatigue during a long day in the saddle. Magneto is available as both an interchangeable piece with three different lens options or as a photochromatic piece with lenses that adapt automatically to varying light conditions. For off the bike use there are standard sunglass temples included, allowing you to take Magneto with you wherever you go.
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.
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.
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.
The Aero Shell is a plastic cover, designed to fit perfectly over specific models of Lazer helmets. The Aero Shell snaps into place and protects the riders head from wind and rain while still allowing for some air movement under the front of the helmet and out the rear vents. The Aero Shell is unique in that it is easily removed from the helmet when riding conditions are such that additional ventilation is desired.
Snap it on when the rain is pouring down and pull it off when the sun starts to shine, the Aeroshell is the perfect tool for every possible condition.
Alternatively the Aeroshell provides a significant increase in Aerodynamic performance once it is installed on the helmet. By closing off the ventilation holes, the amount of aerodynamic drag the helmet creates is strongly reduced, resulting in a faster ride.
A coffee or beer after a long ride, or a day in the mountains is the perfect way to relax and discuss your performance or the events of that day with your buddies. But where do you leave that helmet?! You can lay it on the table, hang it on your gear or even keep it on your head, but none of those solutions are really ideal. And how do you secure your bike or skis without carrying a lock at all times?
You want to store your helmet somewhere and not have to look over your shoulder every five minutes to check if your bike or skis are still there. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to store your helmet and lock your valuable gear safely at the same time?!
That problem is now solved with the arrival of the Cappuccinolock.
The Cappuccinolock is a revolutionary way to secure your helmet using only your helmet straps. Slide the male part of your buckle into the lock on one side and connect the female part of your buckle on the other side of the lock. Twist the numbers to ensure the lock can’t open and relax while you have your coffee.
Use it to lock your helmet to prevent it from getting stolen or use the helmet straps to secure your helmet and your gear at the same time.
Lock it, roll it, leave it!
This LED light comes standard on some models but is an option for almost all helmets equipped with the Rollsys® system. Simply replace the Rollsys® cap with the updated version and put the LED light in the Rollsys® thumbwheel. The LED light provides increased visibility and therefore added safety.
MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) is a revolutionary technology, providing protection with respect to angled impacts.
MIPS’ is a patented protection system and comes from years of studying the human brain. The brain is surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid that protects it by allowing it to slide when exposed to an angled impact. Mimicking the cerebrospinal fluid, MIPS creates a sliding layer between the helmet and the head. This reduces the rotational force otherwise transmitted to the brain. The combination of the brain’s own protection and MIPS provides better protection from angled impacts. MIPS can be utilized in any helmet and does not interfere or take away from any other technical features, safety aspects, comfort or design.
MIPS was developed by some of the world’s leading researchers in biomechanics and neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. The results is helmets offering enhanced safety and protection from rotational forces to the brain
Conventional helmet testing is done by dropping them vertically onto a flat surface. MIPS is designed for reality, reflecting how most accidents occur, with angled impacts to the head. By using the low friction layer, MIPS can absorb more of the energy from an angled blow to the head.
Lazer and MIPS have been partners since 2013 and colaborated on the first ever inmolded helmet that featured the technology, the Lazer P'Nut MIPS helmet. Since then the MIPS system has been available throughout the Lazer range.
Look for the yellow MIPS logo on the helmets to ensure that you are wearing a helmet with MIPS technology!
