Lazer is new on the scene for snow sports helmets this year, coming from a solid reputation in the cycle industry.
When looking at helmets I tend to be critical of certain features, such as, how good you can hear through the ear pads, how easy it is to access the vents while its on your head, how it fits with "my" goggles (Smith I/O) and how it looks........Yes style and color is important too.
Notable features of the Lazer Helmet that you won't see on other helmets:
- The Rollsys system to adjust size on the Lazer Tempted is simply one of the easiest to use among the adjustable helmets I've tried, which allows the user to adjust to a significant range of head shapes and sizes.
- The magic buckle, which uses a magnet style latch that is easy to use with gloves on.
The Lazer Tempted is a light weight, well vented helmet that will likely be my choice on those warm spring skiing days when I'd otherwise be tempted to go without a helmet.
All in all a really nice helmet at a good price point!
