I WON a Lazer Helmet!

my new Helmet!!

Thanks to Tri Dad of Five, Christmas came early for me!  Lazer Helmets donated a helmet for a giveaway on his blog, and I was the lucky winner!!

This came at the perfect time- my old aero helmet broke in a minor crash this year, and I've been borrowing one ever since for my races (thanks Steve) !!

I'm SO excited, I've researched aero helmets quite a bit this year, and here's what available for LAZER helmets:

For more in-depth information, check out Tri-Dad's review.

The 2 features that attracted my attentions were:

  1. Head Down Aerodynamics:  This is how I tend to ride so I would love a racing helmet that takes this into account when designing aerodynamic features!
  2. Aquavent:  Unlike "regular" helmets, aero helmets usually don't have any vents, so when you noggin' starts heating up, there isn't any way to cool off.  The Lazer helmets have an actual vent designed to allow you to dump water on your head through the helmet!  This is going to be key for me next year, as I will be racing in some HOT conditions!

And of course, some bonus features...

  • It looks cool.  

  • And, lots of FAST pro's trust Lazer helmets, including:
