not an expert on helmets but wanted a step up from the entry-grade at local discount stores. this has a great fit and not nearly as bulky as the entry-grade helmets. the only problem is very general in nature and probably applies to a lot of helmets: the stickers just inside the rim make it hard to stick velcro for a mirror. I realize these stickers are required for compliance and liability but it would be nice if the spots near each temple could be free of impediments for attaching a mirror with velcro. despite this limitation, i wouldn't hesitate to buy another helmet in this series.
This helmet did not feel right immediately after trying it on. So I exchanged it for a Giro Syntax MIPS. The Lazer really surprised me about how uncomfortable it was for me. The Giro Syntax felt far more comfortable on my head. However it sits very low. Which is okay, but is a little difficult to adjust to.
I had a Large Lazer Blade+ w/MiPS technology helmet, and it was a great helmet. I passed that one down to my son, and purchased the Strada in size Medium. The price was very affordable. I also purchased the Aeroshell direct from Lazer to keep the cold air out during the winter.
I like the helmet overall but what I really like is that the adjustment to tighten is up on the helmet in a treadmill design. It's easily accessible compared to some that are below and a little harder to get to.
Initially not as comfy as expected, but I quickly forget itï¿½s there. Seems to grab more from front to back with the ï¿½occipitalï¿½ cage on the back. No slipping or wobbling from side to side though. Nice to avoid the add on MIPS interior plastic which gets brittle over time.
This product is made for those of us with a larger sized head. Lightweight and fits well. Looking for XL in other colour as this is now my go to helmet. Very pleased with styling, fit and comfort.
