Great helmet, been eyeing the Z1 up for awhile, couldn't beat the deal that this site was offering at the time, very comfortable, love the extra back of the head coverage compared to other cycling helmets, would highly recommend this product to others!
All the other road helmets I have owned are fitted with a simple mechanism that pushes on the back of your head and wedges your forehead into the front of the helmet. This one is different ! It keeps your head in the center of the helmet while you dial in a good fit. It's light , extremely well ventilated, good looking ,and although more expensive than I usually spend on a helmet, definitely the best fitting helmet I have owned.
The helmet is my primary lid, so I use it 4-5 days a week. Fits great, looks great. The new Roll-Sys dial system doesn't seem as robust as the previous, but it still works fine. Got it for half off through Bike Tires Direct, my fav on-line store!
Extremely comfortable and light helmet. I added the mud flap and light options to it. I currently own a Lazer Genesis, Giro Synthe and the Z1. The Z1 has quickly become my favorite helmet.
Mainly for road bike. I had a Lazer Genesis prior and really liked how it fit my head. I looked at some other brands (Bontrager did not fit my head shape and I tried a Bell that was a better fit but not quite as good as my previous Lazer). I like the Lazer fit and adjustment device. This helmet breaths a little better than the Genesis and is a tad lighter. For me fit was the key...but everyones head shapes are different. I like the overall style and color of most Lazer helmets and this helmet is no different. It does have an unorthodox design with the extended temple protection but its not something you notice while riding.
This is a really nice helmet-very light and good airflow. The Lazer adjustment system is top-mounted, so it took a bit of getting used to (compared to years of Giro roc-lok). That said, it works remarkably well-very adjustable resulting in a really stable lid. As a bonus, the front cutaway works perfect to pop the brim on your cycling cap.
I like my helmet it's light and looks great fits head snug.The only thing I dont like is the chin strap kinda hard to keep it from twisting on you every time you put it on you have mess with it don't know why
