Bike Exchange takes a look at the Lazer Genesis LifeBEAM helmet!
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.
CyclingTips looks at their favorite products for the month of December and the Lazer Z1 helmet and Cappuccinolock are included in the list!
The Rollsys winch works beautifully. It’s easy to find and adjust, and I found myself using it to secure and release my head rather than squeezing into and out of the helmet. The straps are soft and light on the skin as well as being easy to adjust. I like the clean lines of this helmet and Lazer offers a fine choice of colours.
There’s some appeal in this simple deterrent for protecting your helmet (or converting your helmet into a short-term lock for your bike). The device itself is simple to use, just click each end of the helmet’s buckle into place then spin the dials to lock them.

Cycle Boredom begins testing the Lazer Z1:
Having ridden, tested, and reviewed both the Lazer Genesis and Helium helmets, I’m very familiar with their products. They’re two of my favorite helmets I’ve used from both an aesthetic and performance POV. However, seeing as I was very familiar with them, I obviously knew their one major drawback: they weren’t the lightest.
The Lazer Z1 ($270USD) aims to crush drawbacks with de nieuw awesome. Increased temple protection, new lighter Advanced Rollsys Retention System (ARS), new strap system, Aeroshell compatibility, and lastly a weight of 220 grams.
