Lazer Z1 Helmet Review


Lazer Z1 Helmet Review

The past couple times that I’ve reviewed a Lazer helmet, I’ve done it with a video review because I like being able to show how the helmet looks and feels.  But, this time around, I’m laying out the goods in written content so that I can focus more on the features and speak about my recommendation.

Okay, so the Z1 is the newest product from Lazer and I’m always curious to see what new features will be added to improve things.  You see, a helmet is all about safety…..but one that feels great and looks nice is really what us cyclists are after, right?

It’s safe to say that any decent helmet is going to provide an equal amount of safety these days….as long as you’re wearing it properly.  So getting one that best fits your head is ultimately what you should be looking for.

The Z1 delivers quite nicely and here’s what stands out to me the most:

  • Lightweight
  • Lots of ventilation
  • Snug fit

Lazer Helmet RollsysOf these, I’d say that the best feature is the Lazer Advanced Rollsys® fit system which allows for the snug fit on your head.  The rollsys is a fully integrated mechanism that surrounds your head completely.  As you turn the thumb wheel at the top of the helmet, it tightens up symmetrically so that there isn’t one pressure point that starts to push into your head while other places feel loose.

Lazer has a pretty cool accessory available for the Z1 as well.  They call it the Aeroshell and it’s made to be used in severe wind and rainy conditions.  It’s a cover that easily snaps onto the helmet, and can be taken off just as easily.  I personally, haven’t bothered to use it…..but it might be something you find valuable.

So if you’re searching for a new helmet this season, the Lazer Z1 is a solid choice.  It retails for around the $270 mark and is available online or at your local bike shop.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
