Spotted being ridden under the auspices of teams Sunweb and Jumbo-Visma at the start of this week’s Tour Down Under, Lazer has unveiled its latest aero helmet called the Bullet 2.0.
Similar to the original Bullet, this latest aero lid also features Lazer’s sliding front panel called the AirSlide, which allows the helmet to be quickly switched between fully-concealed and ventilation mode.
Other features that punctuate the new Bullet 2.0 include improved internal channelling for better cooling and larger rear and top forward-facing vents that Lazer claims results in an 11% improvement in heat reduction over its predecessor. Moreover, when it comes to cheating the wind, the Belgian brand says the new design is 7 watts faster at 58.68km/h than any of its current models.
Additionally, the Bullet 2.0 features a new Zeiss visor that attaches magnetically at the front and rear, allowing easy storage when the lens is not in use.
Lazer also took safety into consideration when designing the Bullet 2.0, which features an integrated rear LED light that’s built into the helmet’s Turnfit retention system, which is also compatible with the company’s LifeBEAM heart rate monitoring system that plugs into the helmet.
Lazer says there will also be a MIPs equipped model, with pricing for the European market at £219.99, and £239.99 for the MIPs version.
The Bullet 2.0 will be available starting at the end of January, with a choice of colors in black, white, yellow, blue and red.

The Bullet 2.0 helmet provides an answer to the age-old dilemma of ventilation versus aerodynamics. With its narrow shape and closed shell it is a seriously aerodynamic helmet but a quick adjustment to the Airslide system turns it into a helmet with sufficient ventilation to tackle climbs on hot days. With its adjustability the Bullet 2.0 is a road racing helmet for everyday, but one that packs serious aerodynamic performance.
When ventilation is required, the Airslide system can be utilized to open up the front of the helmet and create an airflow throughout with exhaust vents at the rear. When ventilation is of lesser importance, the entire Airslide system can be exchanged for a fully closed cap, creating an even more aerodynamic version of the helmet. But whatever configuration you use the side, rear and top Venturi cap combined with internal airflow channels make sure there is always airflow inside the helmet, even when going full gas in aero mode.
On top of this the Bullet 2.0 helmet also allows a quick and easy installation of the LifeBEAM technology to measure your heart rate, or the Inclination Sensor to monitor your head position on the bike. FASTER!
