A few months back, Lazer debuted its new G1 helmet during the World Championship Road Race in Yorkshire, UK under the auspices of a number of national team riders, calling it the lightest and most advanced road helmet to date.
According to Lazer, the G1 features the Belgian company’s most advanced retention and ventilation design, which tips the scales at a feathery 189 grams.
“The G1 delivers featherweight and aerodynamic performance for a variety of cycling disciplines including road, mountain, gravel and beyond. The G1 features the superlight version of Lazer’s patented Advanced Rollsys System, securing an easy 360° adjustment. Together with the Adjustable Head Basket, it secures a perfect and comfortable fit,” says Lazer.
Additionally, the G1 includes two sets of padding (Race and Comfort) for cyclists who want to either shave grams or increase comfort, while Lazer’s Aeroshell is available as an option to give the helmet a more aerodynamic signature. Moreover, during cold weather riding conditions, the Aeroshell can be used as a cover to protect cyclists from the elements.
The G1 is called the Genesis outside of the North American market, which will be worn by WorldTour teams Jumbo Visma and Team Sunweb for the 2020 season, and is available in three sizes in both a MIPS and non-MIPS version that sell for $239.99 and $219.99 respectively.
We recently got our hands on a G1 for review, which we’ll be reporting on in the near future.
