The Lazer Z1 is the helmet choice for Lotto Soudal, regardless of the conditions, thanks to its removable aero shell and feather-light weight.

The helmet comes equipped with 31 vents, but they can all be covered up, improving the aerodynamics of the lid with the removable Aero Shell that simply clips into place. The shell can be used to insulate your head in cooler conditions and also keep the rain away. But the reality is, it will be used for saving watts the majority of the time. This gives you the aerodynamic benefit without the weight and discomfort you would normally associate with an aero helmet.

Aside from the aerodynamics the Z1 has all the features of other Lazer helmets, only much lighter. For protection the helmet is fitted with the Rigidity Brace system which acts the same way as a roll cage in a race car, protecting your head against impacts from any angle.

The thumb wheel at the top of the helmet make adjustments easy and tightens symmetrically making for a comfortable fit. Coming in at under 200 grams for a small, it's also very easy on the neck and shoulders if you are spending long hours in the saddle.

For being all things to all riders, the Lazer Z1 makes it into our top five road products of 2016.
