Rollsys® Fit System The main goal of wearing a helmet is to avoid getting injured. The fitting of a helmet is therefore very important and pays big safety and comfort dividends. As Lazer is always looking for innovation, our R&D department developed the most advanced fitting system to optimize comfort and fit. The Lazer Rollsys® system is born… What is it and how does it work? Compared to the standard fit systems the Lazer Rollsys® system is a fully integrated mechanism which surrounds the head completely. By turning a smooth thumb wheel – situated on top of the helmet – the Rollsys® system permits an accurate and progressive peripheral sizing adjustment. The fit of the helmet will symmetrically be tightened without any pressure points on the head. The Rollsys® system offers an innovative one hand use and is easy to handle even during riding. By taking away the retention system at the back the Rollsys® system is also the perfect solution for people with a ponytail. Roll into the Future From the moment the Rollsys® system was introduced to the market, it immediately got rewarded for its design and innovation. The testing by thousands of riders proved its efficiency and durability. In other words… plenty of reasons to integrate the Rollsys® system in each newly developed helmet. Turn me on !

In 2012 the following helmets will be outfitted with the Rollsys® system: • Tardiz • Helium • Genesis • Sphere • 02 • Neon • Nirvana • Oasiz • Clash • Vandal • KISS • Skoot • Urbanize • Krux

Autofit® System How do you make the best helmet retention system in the world even better? Make it even easier to use. That’s exactly what we did with the new Autofit® system, exclusively from Lazer Sport.

In 2012 the following helmets will be outfitted with the Autofit® system: • P’Nut • Nut’Z

How does it work? Based on the incredible Rollsys® system, but even easier to operate, the Autofit® system eliminates any need to manually adjust the helmet retention. As a fully integrated system, totally invisible from the outside of the helmet, the Autofit® system connects the rear basket and the front head belt of the retention system and puts a constant and even tension between these two components. To put the helmet on simply pull the rear basket and the head belt away from each other, put the helmet on your head and Autofit® system will automatically tighten itself around your head for an optimal fit each and every time! The patent-pending technology of the Autofit system is designed to provide equal and constant pressure without discomfort. Regardless of head size or shape, Autofit® will adjust automatically and provide a secure yet comfortable fit. Made for kids The simplicity and easy operation of the Autofit® system makes it perfect for use in children’s helmets. The helmet will always have a perfect fit without the need for any additional adjustments. Parents will save time, energy and frustration while still providing safe and reliable head protection for their children. It’s a great combination and your child will look forward to wearing their Autofit® helmet on every ride! A comfortable helmet that fits perfectly every time you put it on. The Autofit® system exclusively from Lazer Sport. So easy it’s child’s play!

Magneto eyewear system (mes) Magneto is a revolutionary sunglass/helmet interface that offers the user improved comfort and superior fit. Recognizing that traditional sunglass temples cause trouble for some wearers both in terms of fit, contact with the helmet’s retention system and added pressure to the side of the head at the contact points, Lazer has eliminated these temple pieces and replaced them with a clever magnetic attachment system. The helmet strap has two rubber pieces on it with a small piece of metal inside, this allows for an attachment with magnets that are imbedded in two short tabs that connect to the sunglass lens. The result is a secure fitment of the lens on the face but with the ability for adjustment both up and down and in and out. With Magneto in use there is no possibility for interference of the Rollsys retention system and the side of the head is left unobstructed to keep cool. Magneto is available as both an interchangeable piece with three different lens options and as a photochromic piece with standard and Melanin photochromic lenses available. For off the bike use there are standard sunglass temples available, allowing you to take the magnate glasses with you wherever you go.

Features: • Magnets imbedded in the sunglass temples secure the eyewear to the helmet strap • No temple pieces to interfere with helmet retention system • Increased cooling by removal of sunglass temples • Horizontal/Vertical & Forward/Backward adjustability on the helmet straps allow the user ultimate comfort • Interchange System allows multiple lenses to be used for varying light conditions • 3 lenses (Smoke/Brown, Lazer Yellow, Clear) or 1 Standard Photochromic or Melanin Photochromic lens • Traditional temples can be attached to convert the Magneto to a normal sunglass for off the bike use

This heated air escapes out of the back vents where the air gets trapped on the matte dimpled surface. This low pressure area helps to pull the cooler air over the front smooth glossy surface of the helmet. At speed the helmet will actually help pull itself through the air!

I started using Lazer helmets last year and instantly liked them. The Rollsys fit system works brilliantly as it allows you to easily tighten or loosen the helmet with one hand, which is great for adjusting running through transition, or once on the bike. The Tardiz is also the coolest TT helmet I have used, which is super important for some of my key races this year like Kona, Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi. Add all this to the fact that after testing it recently in the wind tunnel, I have the confidence that the Tardiz is hands down the best helmet for me to use.

I’ve been lucky enough to wear Lazer helmets for most of my racing career and after getting to know the family of people behind the brand I can really say nobody is more passionate about making a high quality product with a real sense of style while keeping comfort and safety the highest priority. In Belgium cycling is a so deeply part of

the culture and Lazer Helmets is synonymous with that culture. I hope to only wear a Lazer

helmet for the rest of my pedal pushing days!

Excalibur Full protection sports helmet

A friend of mine showed me this wall ride about a year ago after he saw one of the Metal Mulisha guys on a video hit this wall ride. So I have wanted to do this wall ride on my bike since, just waiting for the right time. It had rained the day before so it was a good day to get some friends together with shovels and do some work on it. The landing was the hardest part to make work as it was too far away from the wall. We did all we could with the time we had to work with to make it as best we could. I had a friend of mine tow me in with his motorcycle because it was a flat run in and the take off was about 8 feet tall, so I needed to have a lot of speed going into it.

My kids love their Lazer helmets. They are fully and easily adjustable, and they can do it themselves in a matter of seconds! They are great for the changing weather in Belgium when the morning trip to school could require a hat underneath and the trip home requires nothing... or vice versa! Lazers are comfortable and my kids think the designs are really cool! So, instead of having to beg them to put their helmets on for a

ride, I sometimes have to beg them to take them off!

mips Lazer and MIPS Lazer helmets and MIPS have collaborated to make one of the safest children’s helmets available. The Multi-directional Impact Protection System is now available in the P’Nut and Nut’Z children helmets to make then perform even better in the event of a crash.

Street Junior youth helmet

Deformation of the brain from an oblique impact when the user is wearing a conventional helmet and a helmet with MIPS technology.

Mimicking the brain

Real World Impact Testing Conventional helmets are tested by dropping them vertically onto a flat surface. MIPS has had 15 years of study and testing in Sweden by some of the world’s leading researchers and brain surgeons. MIPS is based on a different testing principle – reality. Because in reality when you fall, your head hits the ground at an angle and in motion, creating a rotation in the brain, which in turn causes major damage. With MIPS, the helmet absorbs much of that damaging rotation, offering you radically better protection. The MIPS patent was developed by some of the world’s leading researchers in biomechanics and neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. In the same way that cars are now tested for side impact and have airbags at both the front and the side, MIPS is setting a new standard for helmets. The result of the MIPS technology in a helmet becomes evident when you compare the results of brain scans during impact. Both scans were taken when a crash occurs at exactly the same speed and angle, but the outcomes are very different. The more red areas, the more damage to the brain. Lazer catalogue 2012

How it works When the head is subjected to an impact, the brain slides along a membrane on the inner surface of the skull, which reduces the forces transmitted to the brain. This natural defense system was copied and technically improved upon to create the MIPS technology which has shown a dramatic reduction of the forces to the brain. The result is that in case of an impact the chance of a brain injury or concussion are greatly minimized.

The secret behind MIPS’ unique patent comes from the human brain, The brain is surrounded by a low-friction cushion of cerebrospinal fluid. MIPS imitates the brain’s way of protecting itself by giving the helmet its own low-friction layer between the outer shell and the liner, to absorb much of the energy created by a blow to the head. The combination of the brain’s own protection and MIPS therefore ensures maximum protection for the rider. Very simple, yet very effective. The outer shell slides on impact, radically reducing the damage to your brain. MIPS imitates the brain’s own protection system and sets a new standard in helmet safety.

aer she oll

The Aero Shell is a plastic cover, designed to fit perfectly over some of the Lazer helmets. The Aero Shell snaps into place and protects the riders head from wind and rain while still allowing for some air movement under the front of the helmet and out the rear vents. The Aero Shell is unique in that it is easily removed from the helmet when riding conditions are such that additional ventilation is desired. Snap it on when the rain is pouring down and pull it off when the sun starts to shine, the Aeroshell is the perfect tool to ride, in every possible condition.

Lazer Sport continues its reputation in cutting edge innovation by presenting the patented Aero Shell.

Ventilation research

bicycle safety/concussions

Wearing a helmet on a sweltering summer day can be hot and uncomfortable for recreational cyclists. For athletes, badly ventilated helmets may even temper top performances. Smartly positioned ventilation ports and internal air channels help to combat this problem. Are current ventilation ports and channels designed for optimal helmet ventilation? How can we improve helmet ventilation? To answer these questions Lazer Sport has teamed up with researchers from one of the most esteemed universities in Western Europe, the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (K.U.Leuven). Lazer has always been at the forefront of design and innovation. First we successfully solved the problem of excessive helmet weight. Then we created the ideal solution for adjusting helmet fit. Now we focus on creating a solution that provides optimal helmet ventilation. Well ventilated helmets are important since the head is an important area for heat loss. When cycling, only about 20% to 25% of the produced energy is transferred into mechanical energy 1; this is the energy used to drive your legs. Therefore for 75% to 80% of the total produced energy is transferred into heat. During climbing or sprinting, heat production is even higher. This heat needs to be removed to keep core body temperature within its limits. When core body temperature tends to increase, sweating will occur. Sweat allows the removing of heat if sufficient ventilation is provided such that it can evaporate. 2,3,4 Insufficiently ventilated helmets may cause heat stress and increased local sweat production5, as the head tries to overcome a deficient evaporative cooling. A well ventilated helmet helps to keep the head cool. The result? Longer and harder rides with less chance for overheating. In short, a well ventilated helmet keeps your head in the game and your body at peak performance.

In all honesty, helmets are a necessary evil, they can be hot, uncomfortable and annoying… but you wear them in the hope that you will never need it. At Lazer we recognize that wearing a helmet is not always enjoyable or practical, yet we encourage every rider to wear a helmet whether you are a professional rider in a bunch sprint or a commuter on your way to work. Simply put, when you do crash it will provide protection against impact and potentially save your life. Lazer helmets are made to reduce the possibility of severe head injury. Research has shown that up to 70% of fatal cycling accidents are due to head injuries 1,2,3. So protecting your head in a crash is more than important. More specifically, it was found that wearing a bicycle helmet can prevent or reduce between 60% and 69% of fatal head injuries that are caused by cycling accidents 4,5,6. Lately there has been a heightened awareness of the frequency and effects of head injury in cycling and in sports in general 7. While this is more of a problem in contact sports such as football or hockey, cycling is not immune. Getting to know the signs and symptoms of minor head injuries as well as the risks of ignoring them is beneficial for every rider. While a head injury sounds very severe the more classic and widely understood term, “concussion” strikes a little fear in everyone. A concussion can be the result from even a mild force to the head. While the understanding of a concussion remains relatively unclear, much is known about the short- and long-term effects of even mild concussion 8,9: I. The likelihood of a second concussion is much higher after a first episode. II. Post-concussion syndrome can consist of dizziness, difficulty concentrating, headaches, nausea and vomiting, and may last from days to months. III. Repeated concussions may result in memory loss and progressive brain deterioration. So whatever reason you can find for not wearing a helmet, think about concussions and how easily you can avoid them by wearing a helmet.

Cool your head! In collaboration with the division of Measure, Model and Manage Bioresponses (M3-BIORES) of K.U.Leuven Lazer Sport is currently investigating how helmet ventilation can be improved. How can we design the internal helmet structure such that airflow is not blocked between head and helmet? How can we improve inlet systems for airflow at the front and outlet systems for airflow at the rear? The test installations allow quantifying local thermal responses of the head under a helmet (e.g. skin temperature, air temperature and sweat production) at test persons in a wind tunnel while controlling ambient air temperature. Additionally, a setup is available to monitoring local ventilation efficiency in the volume between head and helmet using a manikin head in a wind tunnel6. Based on the outcomes of this collaboration, Lazer Sport has reviewed and redeveloped the airflow systems of their products to maximize the ventilation and cooling. Lazer catalogue 2012
