LaZer Kestrel Carbon Light Rich Helmet
As I expected
Order it a size larger . . . XXL instead of the normal XL I use, it fits like a Sharks RSI, a bit on the tight side, but, time will allow it to "expand"
Light and well ventilated, for the short inaugural ride I took it to

Good lightweight helmet!
I got this helmet for the carbon fiber and so that I can put the Illumino shield in it.
This helmet is a good light helmet for not a lot of money. It seems to run a little bit small. I normally wear a large, and I was able to get my head in a Large, but it was pretty darn tight, so I opted to send it back and get the XL. Glad that I did.
It lets a lot of air in, but it is also pretty loud. I was planning on getting a bluetooth communicator for mine, but am wondering if I am going to be able to hear it if I do. I guess I can play with some earbuds and see if I have a hard time hearing with them in.
Also, this helmet looks really good if you like the CF look. The have aligned the CF mesh so that it is symmetrical. I think it looks sweet!

Amazing with the Lumino visor
When I first wore this helmet it was so much better than my previous cheap one, I fell in love with it. I didn't come with the Lumino lens in the box, I had to get one later, but it was really worth it. Used it for commuting, worked perfectly. The only thing that bugged me with this, was the top vent switches, too hard to operate with gloves on. Everything else like visor seal, aerodynamics, weight (carbon fiber - do like!), Pinlock (!) is superb. And if I ever decide to buy a modular, I'll go for the Lazer Monaco Carbon. Lazer is doing a great job with carbon fiber and Lumino visors. I'm replacing my Kestrel because I dropped it from my tank and I've been wearing it for 3+ years.

Good fit if you have a pinhead
I got this helmet because my other helmet weighed like 5 pounds so I got this helmet because everybody said it was really light and stated that it was an intermediate oval head shape which my last helmet was which fit right but was just uncomfortable because it was so heavy. So I put the helmet on and I could hardly get it past my chin, I had to pull the front of the helmet down to make it fit right which was really uncomfortable and immediately started to feel pressure points on my forehead. Somebody stated it fits true to size so I got my size which didn't fit. Somebody else stated the field of view in this helmet is good because there is a big opening for the visor but since the helmet sits so high on your head your whole downward view is going to be diminished. The nose guard/breath guard is utterly useless just blocks your vision even more don't know why anyone would want one on their helmet. The chin curtain is only made for riding in cold weather. If you want to ride with your visor open a hair you can't really do that because it still stays open about an inch on the closest setting. The helmet looks really big too when you have it on so I don't get why it is so tight. Its light and the padding is soft which is the only good thing about it. Look at the picture it is really narrow front to back...

LaZer Kestrel Carbon Light Helmet Review
Very light helmet, The helmet fits great. The pin lock system is amazing for removing the shield. It also comes with a anti-fog insert that was installed with minimal effort. Great product, great style, and above all GREAT PRICE!!!!
Thanks Revzilla ! ! ! !

This is the second helmet I've had, and defiantly is a huge improvement on the previous one.
I haven't had the helmet long enough to rate protection/durability, thus the average rating.
I bought the size closest to my head measurement and it fits well. In fact, it got more comfortable the longer I wore it. The chin strap seems to be closer to my Adams apple but I have begun to get accustom to it. The visor has a very solid close, and seals well. Both the pinlock and lumino visor work brilliantly, and basically give me full peripheral vision.
Sound wise, I'm not sure. Noises are quieter, but wind is louder. It may be do to the very functional venting. With the front chin vent open, it is like having a nice light breeze on your face.
I bought the MS and it weighs less than my old kids size motocross helmet. I mean, it is super light.
If your one that likes the in helmet Bluetooth gadgets, I don't think there is room for it.
With the visor options, good fit, low weight, and nice look, I'll probably repurchase when the time comes to replace.

Extremely light, comfortable, and form fitting.
This is a great product! The helmet is extremely light, comfortable, and fits like a glove! After about a week of riding, the helmet molded perfectly to the shape of my head like a pair of hockey skates! The transitions shield is amazing as well! An exceptional affordable investment!!
