To plot the future, Lazer tapped into its past.

Shaving both letters and grams, the G1 road helmet has been reborn from the ashes of its predecessor, the Genesis, as Lazer's lightest bike helmet ever.

How did they do it? Start with the G1's hard shell construction, which is molded from rugged and durable EPS foam construction.

Running through it are 22 internal channels that afford ample venting, which Lazer says is actually 8% more cooling efficienct than wearing no helmet at all.

Resting on the crown of the G1 road helmet is an Advanced Rollsys retention dial, which pulls an internal cable circling the base close. The fit that results is snug and secure but without headache-inducing pressure points.

Industry-standard MIPS guards against rotational impact should you hit the deck (fingers crossed you don't), while a pair of padded inserts let you shave even more grams for race day or opt for comfort on training rides.

Features & Specs:

  • The lightest Lazer helmet ever - 230g (size small)
  • Advanced Rollsys fit system allows for easy horizontal and vertical adjustment
  • In-mold construction
  • 22 vents
  • Includes two sets of pads: race and comfort
  • Lazer Aeroshell compatible
  • MIPS provides increased protection against rotational impact
  • Developed in partnership with multiple UCI WorldTour Teams

Great Quality, fits perfectly and so light weight you forget your wearing a helmet at all!
by Big O

It was time to replace my old road helmet and after some careful research on safety, weight and fitting - this Lazer G1 is everything I was looking for. Love the fit and keeps my head cooler on hotter days. For winter I plan on ordering the Aeroshell to cover the vents. Most of my rides are 40 - 65+ miles 3 times a week and this is by far the most comfortable helmet I have ever worn. A bit pricey, however in this case you really get what you pay for!

This Helmet ROCKS!
by Razorken

A brief history of my helmet wearing: I'd always worn Giro helmets up until six or seven years ago when they first introduced their MIPS helmet. Sadly, that bad boy didn't fit at all as the M was too large and loose and the S was too small and tight. I then changed to a Kask Vertigo in a M but it was actually too large, was insufficiently well-ventilated, and sweat ran into my eyes. So then I moved to the Kask Protone in a size S. I loved Protone's aesthetics but, man, talk about poorly ventilated. Sheesh! So, onto the Lazer, which is simply AWESOME! Super lightweight, uber adjustable, and the best ventilated helmet I have EVER worn. Seriously, it had been so long since I'd worn a truly well-ventilated lid, that I'd actually forgotten how pleasant it is not to have sweat dripping into your eyes. This has become, now, my favorite helmet ever.

Lazer G1 MIPS is a winner
by James
Cycling Enthusiast

OK, watching the Jumbo Visma and Sunweb teams don this helmet may have heightened my interest, but I'd been looking to replace my Giro Synthe (non-MIPS) for a while anyway. Helmets are like shoes, great if they fit, lousy if they don't. The Lazer GP1 MIPS fits great - for me. It clears the top of my sunglasses by about 3/4", allowing for great ventilation (as opposed to the Giro, which sat on top of the sunglass frame). It does require adjusting the Rolsys device and sliding the non-locking strap yokes into place before each ride - a two second process that yields a stable, dialed-in fit. The straps are very light, easy to adjust to perfection and lay flat. The helmet is very well ventilated and very light. My medium weighs 260 grams - just 12 grams more than my very light, medium (non-MIPS) Giro Synthe. Price is very competitive with other top of the line helmets. And, it's a sleek, great looking lid.

Airy and Top Rated
by Anonymous

I had to buy a new helmet after smashing my Giro Synthe on the right side twice. I was going to go with the Giro Aether, but then read the tests from Virginia Tech ( https://www.helmet.beam.vt.edu/bicycle-helmet-ratings.html ) where it is the top helmet out of 99 tested for concussion prevention (several places ahead of Giros). It also had really good reviews on YouTube.

Had my first ride in it today and it just blows the Synthe (non MIPS) away in terms of ventilation. That's really important to me. It fit really well and looks pretty good. So I'm very happy. The only one nitpick is the tightening system feels like it loosens too easily (no ratchet).

I can tell it sticks out a bit from my head, but I don't mind too much since that means more impact to the helmet and not my face. It is also super light and looks pretty cool (you can actually peel off the Lazer stickers if you want).

Anyway, I'm very picky and I am pleased with it! The Virgina Tech tests were really its best selling point for me.

Size Large runs a little big
by jmpdx

Nice helmet. I haven't had any loosing issues report by some folks. I did find the size large a little bigger than my Giro Synth. I always wear some form of summer or winter head covering under my helmets. Without wearing the head covering this helmet would be too big for me.

Best Helmet I've Had
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

Lightweight (you forget it's there), doesn't block your vision so you can keep your head down more and still see without craning your neck, good range of adjustability so you can ride with headbands, etc. or without and it'll fit regardless, and it vents really well to keep air flowing on hot days. Only issue I have is that it doesn't have vents that are good for holding sunglasses. I've just started putting them behind my head under the helmet instead and that works too. This thing is by far my favorite helmet that I've tried.

Mine was defective and was returned for credit

I used it on one trip. It would not stay tight and i had to repeatedly tighten it. Chatted with one of your reps and he said to return it. I liked the looks of it and the feel. So incredibly light. Sorry it didn't work out.

We also use intercoms on our tandem, so a lightweight helmet is very nice. Lazer definitely cuts some frill to make this helmet so light and the only complaint we have is the buckle is a bit hard to operate.

If light is high on your list, this helmet is a great deal.

Love the orange color!

Nice Helmet

It is a nice, light helmet. The MIPS feature is a plus. The back head cradle retention system does loosen. I have noticed this in other Lazer helmets too. I find myself having to tighten it often during a ride.

High rated for safety
by Exploe42
Cycling Enthusiast
Cincinnati, Oh

I bought this helmet because it had one of the highest safety ratings. It vents well and is lighter than many comparable MIPS based helmets. The retention system took a little time to get used to but once I did the helmet felt great. I love that its light, vents well in the heat and still gets high safety ratings by Virginia Tech testing.

Excellent helmet light, ventilated and comfortable
by Anand

I recently bought a Specialized prevail 2 helmet which I like very much. I wanted another light and comfortable helmet and decided to buy the Lazer based on its excellent safety rating from Virginia Tech. I ordered the orangeblack in size medium and the helmet arrived in three days. I have bought other items such as saddles from Bikesdirect and am very pleased with their service and prices. The Lazer G1 arrived well packaged in a cardboard box. Inside the box, the helmet itself was in its original box wrapped in plastic. A cloth cover, extra pads (in red) were also included in the box along with instructions. An excellent buying experience.

I have done about two longish rides with the Lazer in the hot and humid weather we are experiencing in the NE and the helmet is remarkably comfortable, very well ventilated and very light. The sticker inside the helmet indicates a weight of 270 g (compared to 260 g for the Prevail) and circumference in the range of 55-59 cm. The padding is more than adequate. Compared to the Specialized, the Lazer is smaller and lower in profile but feels remarkably similar. The roller mechanism on top to tighten the helmet works well but it does loosen during the ride as mentioned in another review. The Lazer also has a plastic tab inside the helmet which is supposed to be used to adjust vertical position of the liner. Unfortunately, I couldn't even move the sliding tab and decided not to force it in case it broke. The default position of 3 (range 1-5) fits me well. Overall, the Lazer is an excellent helmet and comparable to the Specialized prevail 2. The Specialized has some other features such as a crash sensor.

Nice low profile looks, weight not superlative, retention and straps could be better.
by Seattle Dave

The G1 mips M weighs a few grams more than my Giro Synthe mips M. I really like the styling, its lower profile in height and width than my Synthe. Weight wise, I was disappointed the Lazer is slightly heavier. Im on the verge of being to big for the med size of most helmets, and the G1 feels a hair slightly larger than the Synthe. The retention device on the G1 with the roller on top tightens down moderately tight before it gives up and skips. The Synthe mechanism squeezes headache tight if one desires, and overall the G1 retention does not seem to really help hold the helmet on my head. The G1 doesnt grab my head like the Synthe does, but that may just be the shape of my head. I find the helmet can wander high on my forehead. Your mileage may vary. Also, the Y- strap brackets on the sides of the straps (on either side of your jaw) dont stay where you adjust them to be which is annoying. They can be easily moved by casual handling. Beyond these annoyances, the helmet is comfortable, and looks nice and well made. Just wish it were a bit lighter as they tout the light weight, and the straps were a bit more secure.
