I originally ordered the large size and I sent it back to get the medium. It was on sale and the sale price was awesome. This is easily one of my favorite helmets. I have the older version in orange and that's my go-to night helmet since it's bright. They have made improvements on this latest one and I can definitely feel the difference. It is light and comfortable. I totally forgot that I had it on the first time I rode with it. I highly recommend this helmet.
The Lazer G1 MIPS is a 5-star rated helmet in the West Virginia Tech tests (and don't even look at a helmet that is not rated 5-starts). It is a light and very comfortable helmet. I use a size medium with the Lazer, and it fits great. I used to use size large with Bell and Giro helmets. So use Lazer's sizing chart. The top dial system works much better to adjust the fit to my head compared to Giro and Bell products that I have used for years and were happy with. Lazer just works better on my head. The helmet is also remarkably lighter than other, yet it still has MIPS. I'm very impressed. Also Bike TIres Direct quickly matched the sale price I had found elsewhere.
I'm a fan of Lazer Z1 helmet, but decided to try the Vento Kineticore Aero. The first thing I noticed was it weighed nothing and it was very comfortable. The first time I wore the helmet was on a cold day. I assumed since it was an aero helmet I would wear a light weight beanie cap. I definitely was the cooler side. I haven't had a chance to ride on a warm day but I have no doubt the ventilation will be more than adequate. The glasses dock is a nice touch.
I have worn a lot of different helmets, but this is by far the most comfortable one I have ever owned. It is light, fits great, and ventilates extremely well. I added the high vis aero shell for days where visibility is important, but the aero shell will reduce the air flow somewhat. I rode with this helmet over 4000 miles this year across the U.S. and would certainly recommend this as a first choice touring helmet.
