The leaves are starting to turn and the days are getting grey and cold. So the mind turns to winter cycling!
Be it mountain bike, fat (phat?) biking or riding on the road, winter cycling can be a lot of fun and great training. But having the right equipment to keep warm is critical to enjoying the ride. Lucky for you we have two great helmet options for winter cycling!
The Lazer DISSENT includes the patented Rollsys retention system for a quick, easy and comfortable fit. 13 Adapt vents with the Lazer IN|OUT Design assures proper airflow over the head when it's warm in addition to the ability to shut the vents off when it's cold. The Lazer Magic magnetic buckle makes closing the buckle a snap even while wearing bulky gloves. Removable Earpads pop off when the temperatures climb. You can also use the Lazer GoPro camera mounting clip accessory to capture your winter riding adventures!
The REVERT uses our multiple thickness Fitted Padding system which makes it easy to customize the fit for the users head size and shape. 16 vents with available vent plugs to block the cold air when desired. Internal air channels to assure the head stays cool under exertion. Removable Earpads pop off when the temperatures climb.
Both of these helmets come from our Snow Helmet line but they have been fully tested and certified to CPSC standards for bicycle use as well!
Make your winter cycling warm and safe and check out these two great helmet options at your local Lazer dealer!
For utilitarian riders, the Sweet has it all. Full coverage protection from the elements, 9 adjustable vents to allow the rider to set how much air flows through the helmet, integrated LED taillight and two fluo color options for excellent visibility, in-mold construction for a lightweight 295 grams and three shell sizes with the Lazer Rollsys retention system for the ultimate great fit and comfort. You can even change the top cap to allow for the direct mount of a GoPro camera with no straps or two way tape!
The Bike Habit reviews the Lazer Nirvana MTB helmet:
The Rollsys® system is a smooth red thumb wheel on the top rear section of the helmet that controls a peripheral sizing adjustment on the helmet. This provides a symmetrical tightening throughout the helmet so you never experience pressure points and headaches like with other helmets with ratchet systems. The wheel can be adjusted using one hand while riding and because there is no ratchet in the rear of the helmet it makes it comfortable for those with ponytails.
There's lots of talk about "short tail" aero helmets for triathlon. Check out the only aero helmet designed specifically for the rigors of Ironman distance races! Lazer Tardiz.
The short tail assures aerodynamics when you are riding "head up" or "head down". Quick and easy to put on thanks to the Lazer Rollsys retention system and the Magic Buckle magnetic strap closure. Very well ventilated and maximum cooling offered via 6 air vents and one Aquavent water port on the top of the helmet.
Tardiz is the ultimate helmet for triathlon! Check it out at your local Lazer helmet dealer!

Outside Magazine names the Lazer MOZO as one of its best Snow Sport Helmets for 2014!
We got carried away with the adaptable Mozo ($180), using the Color Chic shell accessory to change the accents nine times. But the Mozo is no gimmick: the fit system tightens evenly around your entire head, making the helmet compatible with the widest variety of head sizes of all the models we tested.
We will be updating this photo album with images of the team throughout the season. Check back often for great photos of your favorite Telenet-Fidea riders in action!

Average Cyclist reviews the Lazer Solid State SS1 Eyeglasses:
I was also super impressed with the optics. I only wish my iPhone camera was good enough to shoot through the lens and capture the fall colors and the sunlight shining on the dew. Okay sorry, that got mushy quickly - let's just say it was a beautiful morning and the lens optics didn't prevent me from enjoying it. Better?
The photochromic lenses performed as advertised. I always felt like they were at the correct shading level, no matter where I went. No eye strain and no temporary sun blindness. Just the right level throughout the entire ride - even when I got side tracked into a coffee shop mid ride for an espresso and my first sugared cronut (croissant + donut = awesomeness). I could see the sugar perfectly.
As I mentioned above, the lenses worked great at night too.
