LaZer Kestrel Deep Hi-Viz Helmet
I am very satisfied with this helmet. It is only my second helmet - my first was a HJC. My head is exactly 57cm, so I ordered the M/S. It is a bit tight, but will pack out with use. It does not seem to vent well, so on sweltering days, it might not be so good. The hi-viz graphics are sharp and do their job well. The Transitions shield is a plus.

Nice helmet on sale
Got the helmet on sale @199 came with pinlock insert and photochromatic shield. Ears got pinched the first couple of times I put it on until I got used to the helmet. Great helmet for the money might have given worse review if I paid full price.

Exellent daily helmet
Lazer Kestrel fit was true to size and noise levels were pretty average. Very light helmet with wide vision. Transitions lens with clip ons work perfectly and I haven't seen any fogging yet.
Now for those thinking about installing Sena SMH-10R, it CAN be done and I did it with slim headsets. I would highly recommend this helmet for daily driver, for track I'd buy something else more aerodynamic with better air flow.

Nice and light
This helmet fits snug, and when installing bluetooth headset, fits painfully, but that's not the helmet's fault. The strap is heavy, the vision is pretty good, and the pinlock visor, included is excellent. I had trouble forcing it to fog up, under any circumstances. I was a little disappointed in the venting, just isn't much to speak of. I will try to widen the holes in the styrofoam, and make sure they're clear. The high viability, light weight wide visor are the best points. The transitions visor is good too.

Awesome Hi Viz Helmet
I bought this because I experienced a high side and landed on my head in my last helmet so I need to replace it. I loved my last helmet because of the internal sun visor. the fit was good and I loved everything about it except the price. So i was looking for a new helmet and Anthony's review of the Lazer brand was something that made me want to try it out. So I went to RZ Headquarters and tried on the Lazer. the fit was great and they were giving away the Transition lens so i got both I have to say that these helmets are great and it has the best optically correct visor i've ever used.

Can't beat the value
I had been looking for a helmet to replace my Icon Alliance rubatone and had tried one or two other helmets before I purchased the Kestrel Lumino Z-line.
This helmet provides so much value for the money (it was on sale through Revzilla) with the included pinlock insert and photochromic faceshield. It is fairly quiet and fits comfortably, other than for me the pockets around the ears are quite poorly placed (maybe it's just my head)
All in all, it is a good helmet which I got for a great price, I'm glad I bought it.

I love the look of this helmet and the air flow and noise level is decent. I love the fact that I got a free shield with the purchase of this helmet. The helmet is of decent weight and the visibility is good. I ordered a MS as my head size was the same as the guy it was being demo on and it's tight, so you might want to go a little larger.

I have owned a number of helmets from Shoei, AGV, Shark, HJC, Icon, ect.. This is my first Lazer helmet. I am impressed. The price point places it on the lower end of what I would consider a decent helmet, but the value of this helmet blows me away. It fits nice; I ordered a ML and wear a M in most everything. It is comfortable and quiet, I was most impressed with how comfortable the helmet is. The included UV sensitive face shield was a nice addition and it works well. The design is nice, I like the pearl white accents. It does have an interest "point" in the chin area. This only places a factors when placing the helmet down. I have all my helmets on display and most of the time they sit flush on my shelving. This once pivots back and forth on the point of the chin. Overall I am impressed with Lazer and will look to them again for an additional helmet.
