The Lazer i-Sensor is getting closer! From Road.CC today:
The i-Sensor itself is a small black box that sits on the back of your helmet; Lazer have designed the Wasp and Wasp Air TT lids with a flat surface for it to attach to. It contains a tilt angle sensor, a speaker and a mechanism to vibrate the shell of the helmet. You set it to your desired position, and should your concentration start to lapse it'll beep and buzz gently to remind you to keep your head straight. The further you go from your desired angle, the more urgently it'll try to warn you.
Read more details on the Road.CC website and look for more informaiton on the Lazer i-Sensor coming soon!

Chloe Hosking won her very first race in the black and orange colours as she took the opening stage of the 2015 Mitchelton Bay Cycling Classic, on Ritchie Boulevard, Geelong, Victoria, for the Wiggle Down Under team. The 24-year-old from nearby Bendigo was the fastest of a group of five riders that escaped midway through the 45 minute race, and beat former Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling rider Lauren Kitchen (Roxsolt) and Lizzie Williams (Orica-AIS) into second and third.

Part Two of the Madison-Saracen video series REFLECTIONS has been released.
Sam Dale came out of the starting blocks with a bang at the start of 2014, with three back-to-back top-10 finishes at the World Cup, as well as the BDS. Although the remainder of the season didn't quite go to plan, Sam rounded off the year with 15th place overall, as well as claiming 11th place at the World Champs. In part two of Reflections, Sam talks about his preparation for next season, his passion for motorbikes and hitting every turn as hard as possible.
Lazer is proud to support the Madison-Saracen Team for 2015!
Ben Davies is a bike messenger in Minneapolis. He uses the Lazer O2 helmet with Aeroshell to combat the frigid temperatures.
The Aeroshell is a plastic cover, designed to fit perfectly over specific models of Lazer helmets. The Aeroshell 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 Aeroshell is unique in that it is easily removed from the helmet when riding conditions are such that additional ventilation is desired.
Aeroshell is available for the following Lazer helmets!: Z1, Helium, Genesis, Sphere, O2 and Tardiz.

How does it work? It's pretty simple. A small sensor sits neatly in the front of the helmet, in the pad which rests against your forehead. Some wires are then equally neatly fed through the helmet into the helmet's 'brain', which sits at the rear. The brain transmits to both ANT+ and Bluetooth devices, and has a battery life of approximately 15 hours. Setting it up with my Garmin computer was easy. Turn on the helmet, turn on the Garmin and five seconds later they were paired. I put the helmet on and about 15 seconds later it had picked up my heart rate. For those without an ANT+ device, readings can be displayed via Bluetooth on any number of devices.
After using this helmet - I'm all for this technology. It's reasonably priced as far as high-end road helmets are concerned, it works well and it eliminates many of the pitfalls of wearing a heart rate strap.
