Lazer Z1 reviewed in The Times UK!
So that's the standard elements that put the Z1 in the running with its contemporaries. The things that set it apart tend to be more outwardly obvious. The fit adjuster, for instance, sits atop the helmet itself, meaning it can be tweaked mid-ride without the need to fiddle about at the back of your neck.
Then there is the styling. This is in part dictated by the safety features - it falls lower at the sides, a bit like looking at a tortoiseshell head on - but also facilitates better airflow with its integrated wing on the top. If you're looking for a fraction more in the way of aerodynamics, there's an optional aeroshell cover. Despite all these tweaks, Lazer have kept the overall look on safe ground, and opted not to go attempting to break any moulds in terms of looks.
This all adds up to a helmet which is different enough to warrant an upgrade but which is still reassuringly familiar to look at. If anything, the fit is closer to the head, and therefore presents a more flattering profile.
The Optum Professional Cycling Team wasted no time following the arrival of their brand new Lazer Flash Orange Z1 helmets with Eric Young winning the fifth stage of the 2014 Tour of Utah.
Following the victory Young stated "My teammates worked their butts off today. Jesse, Tom and Mike worked hard to bring back a dangerous break and set up this sprint. Belkin had the front, and Alex gave me an incredible leadout through the final kilometers. He brought me safely past the dangerous Belkin leadout train and to the front of the race, so I decided, "It's time to get creative."
Conditions in Utah are always hot and oppressive and the Optum team appreciated the benefits of their new Z1 helmets. With 31 vents, the new Advanced Rollsys Retention System and a helmet weight of just 190 grams (CE size small) the Optum riders were cool and comfortable in the Utah heat!

Watch highlights of the 2014 British Time Trial Championships and see Emma Pooley win the title in the Lazer Wasp helmet!
Aerodynamic performance of the Wasp helmet is the result of extensive wind tunnel research, scientific insight in aerodynamics and the use of mathematical models that allowed Lazer to compute and optimize the shape of the helmet in a virtual environment. The Lazer Wasp helmet is currently the fastest helmet in the world!

Congratulations to Andre Greipel and the Lotto-Belisol team!
Lotto-Belisol at the 2014 Tour de France!
After hearing 'de Ronde', a song in dutch about the Tour of Flanders, sung by one of the team doctors SerVaaS, André Greipel asked him to make and sing a song together. Now the Tour de France starts, and this is how such a unusual cooperation between a rider and a doctor sounds...
