Description

The Z1 MIPS Helmet is the culmination of a maximum effort by Lazer to push all their technologies to their fullest potential, incorporating MIPS cutting-edge multi-directional impact protection that reduces rotational forces on the head during real-world impacts. It is one of the lightest helmets the Belgian-based company has ever produced, yet it lacks nothing in terms of comfort, style, or safety. Using their Advanced Rollsys® fit system, the Z1 offers easy-to-use adjustability with a wrap-around cradle that reduces pressure points and a thumb wheel at the top of the helmet for making quick, precise changes on the fly. 31 wind-tuned vents provide tested and effective airflow for great cooling, but the strength of the helmet remains intact with an RBS Rigidity Brace System that internally reinforces the helmet so it provides superior protection in the case of a multi-impact collision.

Create two helmets in one with the addition of Lazer's Z1-specific aeroshell (sold separately), which simply snaps into place to protect vented areas from the elements.

Available in multiple colors. Claimed weight is 275 g (size small).

Sizing:

  • Small: 52 - 57 cm
  • Medium: 55 - 60 cm
  • Large: 58 - 62 cm

Saved My Life

I was struck on the back of my head by the side mirror of a speeding moving van; a DUI hit and run at 7:30 a.m. no less. I was knocked out and tossed off my bike into the dirt on the side of the road, landing on the top of my head. I have no doubt that the blow from the truck would have been fatal had I not had a quality MIPS helmet; the second blow may not have been fatal, but it sure would not have been good. My Lazer Z1 helmet absorbed the blows well enough so that when I gathered myself, I was foggy, but not badly concussed. Other parts of my body did not fare as well, but at least I didn't get my head staved in.

I have an oval-shaped head, and this fit well. The retention strap turner on the top took a bit to get used to, but worked well. It is very light and well ventilated. I got the little red flashing light for the back, but that seemed more of a gimmick and I would not do so again. Don't count on it to replace a bike-mounted high intensity light. I don't think it was bright enough to even augment one.

My collision happened just outside of Lazer's 3-year Crash Replacement Program's timeline, but I sent them an email stating the above story with photos, and told them that I wasn't looking for their deal, only that I was thanking them for such a good product. They immediately gave me the 50% off for a new helmet. I immediately got a new Lazer G1.

Great customer service! I'm sold on this brand - the cost is irrelevant considering the cost of what could have been.

Life saver

Like others have shared, this helmet seems to run a bit larger than other helmets I've used (Giro and Oakley). I had a bad accident a few weeks ago (two broken ribs, loads of road rash, and a cracked top tube), but the helmet absolutely did its job. I was knocked out and actually don't remember what caused the accident (I was on a solo ride, rural road, when I came to I told the paramedics I was avoiding a turkey vulture), but based on the damage to the helmet, the outcome certainly could have been worse. The back of the helmet was crushed, and I had a had a small cut on the back of my scalp, but no concussion or significant head trauma.

Almost as good as the non-MIPS

I love the Z1 fit. I have always done well with Lazer helmets. This is my first MIPS version. It sits a little higher on the head than the non-MIPS version. It is close but just a little different. Probably not a deal breaker for most as the shape is the same, just the cradle doesn't quite have that Kask-like snug fit down around the occiput. Also, I bought the large as the large fit me well in the Z-1 non-MIPS. This one has just a little play in the tightest setting. FWIW I have a long oval head, Kask fits me a little better, POC is OK, Giro terrible.

I'm Alive

Bought last summer as i replace helmets every two years or less. On a descent, early morning, hit something in the roadway and launched at 27 mph....front right side of the helmet absorbed the blow...a slight laceration on my eyebrow from my glasses...no facial bones or teeth broken. Broke clavicle, scapula and 8 ribs...rushed to hospitaltrauma center and CTscan 45 minutes of impact...no issues other than pain but had i not had MIPS, and the helmet, who knows....any helmet that does this is a good helmet....so, can't rate anything but 5 STARS.

I like the helmet.

The helmet is light, fits good, and I like the unique design. I bought it because my old Specialized helmet was 9 years old and the Lazer received a good ventilation rating in a report I read. Bike Tires Direct had the best Lazer price and shipping was super fast. Typically in South Carolina, our late summer will be in the upper 90s or higher. We didn't have a hot summer this year and fall has been very pleasant. Maybe I'll get to try out the ventilation of the helmet in the summer of 2022.

I replaced this helmet with the same one (Lazer Z1 MIPS, white), only I bought two because I like it that much!

Safety and head protection. I like the aggressive look and color choice (white) for hot summer days. Best helmet I've ever owned. Happy to have found a couple at a great price.

Extremely comfortable and supremely ventilated with clever sweat drip management

My top consideration when selecting a helmet is ventilation and sweat management. This helmet hits top marks on both. Not only it boasts large vents, but in addition the sweat is cleverly channeled away from your eyes and your sunglasses. The Z1 is also very comfortable. By moving the adjustment mechanism away from the back of the head and to the top off the helmet it firmly anchors the helmet whereby it does not move under road vibration. This clever feature also adds ventilation be it is perceived or actual.

Not comfortable

This is not comfortable I usually use Bell/Giro. I wish I had not purchased this. The straps loosen up after time and not comfy on head.

saved me from serious head injury

I ride 3-5 times a week on paved bike trails and road. I ride up to week long tours. This month (Sept 2020) I was riding the virtual Gold Star 500 when, due to a failure to communicate, I crashed with another rider at 20mph. We both went to ER. Me in an ambulance. Clavicle broken in two places, requiring surgery to plate and screw the pieces together. But no head injury at all! Even though my head bounced off the asphalt, my Z1 only had minor dings and not even a headache for me. Great product.

Lazer Z1 MIPS Helmet

after a lot of web based helmet research ( local LBS only carries 2 brands) I decided to move from Kask to Lazer.

the Z1 seems to be better like by most and I preferred the styling so I went with it. It is a great fitting helmet* lightweight and comfortable straps as well as great ventilation. The floating feel of MIPS ( this is my 1st MIPS) felt a little odd at 1st but I don't notice it any longer.

* in criticism of this helmet is the fit. My head is 57.5cm. This is unquestionably a Medium size and I wear medium in every other brand. I am a little disappointed that i have to adjust the fit dial to nearly the bottom of the adjustment screw for it to fit properly. I had to double check that this wasn't a large. It fits barely and is good enough but at least in this particular case the sizing seems to be a little off.

Great helmet but weight is NOT accurate

My Z1 MIPS from 2 years ago saved my noggin in a crash and I finally replaced it with the current year's model. The weight of the new helmet, despite what Lazer advertises on its website and is repeated here, is WAY off-it came in at 278g, which not even close to the 190g listed. B TD customer service verified for me that all their size small members weighed 278g. That's a 43% discrepancy!

It's also strangely some 30g heavier than the 2017 model I crashed (no pieces missing, just cracked foam).

I loved the fit, ventilation and temple coverage, but the BEST part was not having an annoying plastic framework to interfere with my ponytail.

I just wish it came remotely close to the advertised weight (or even the same as my old one), but couldn't justify spending this much money on a helmet that didn't really do anything more than the $80 MIPS helmet I already have, so I returned it.

Thanks BTD for the great customer service and easy return process!

Great fit and well vented

I only have a handful of rides but its already hot enough in the mornings in Arizona to test out the air flow and flows more air through it than my previous Kask Protone. The fit is a bit different than the Kask, it hold firm onto my head but it just feels a little strange as it holds higher up. The rear retention system feels like it doesnt hold as firm but I couldnt shake it off my head with out the chin straps so it just feels a bit less secure but in actuality its absolutely fine. I also like the metallic greenyellow color, looks great and hopefully makes you more visible to drives

Amazing fit system in a lightweight MIPS helmet

Avid road biker, averaging 1200 miles per month. Chose this helmet to replace GIro Synthe that had a broken retention system. I was intrigued with the innovative Lazer retention system. Compared to the Synthe, the Z1 fits like a glove, has no movement or bounce at all during riding, is light and extremely well vented. Even better that Bike Tires Direct had the most competitive price for this awesome helmet.

Nice Helmet, Larger than Other Lazer

Fortunately I've not had to test the impact protection that this helmet provides. I did have to return the original one that I purchased because it was too big. I like the way it sits on my head and there is clearance for my sunglasses. I purchased white for better visibility when I ride on our town streets and some of the local highways. Not a lot of traffic but I want to be seen from a distance.
