LaZer Kite Mustang Pure Carbon Helmet (Size 2XL Only)
Would recommend helmet, has a few very small issue but overall it's great
I bought this helmet about a year ago now, I was skeptical of it because I had never heard of lazer. So I did some research on the company, and they seemed legit. So I ordered the helmet.
I got the helmet, and man is this thing beautiful. The styling is a love child of a F-22 raptor and a lamborghini aventador. I have not found a flaw in my carbon. The helmet is Super light weight, and it does fit a sena well. There is no buffeting, and the airflow is quite good.
The only gripes I have about this helmet, are 1: the chin curtain is very easy to remove, but very hard to install. 2: it is a bit noisy of a helmet. I do not ride with ear plugs and it is still bearable. 3: the plastic trim around the air intakes feels chintzy
All and all, I will be sad to retire this helmet when the time comes, I just hope they still sell them at that time.

The noise issue addressed, a fine bash hat.
I resolved the noisy top vent problem by using self adhesive 1/8' foam rubber insulating tape cut diamond shape to fit over said vents. The vents are still functional. Helmet is now quieter than my Scorpion exo900. Above average field of vision. Some condensation on top part of shield in 0c-5c weather. Pinlock and Lumino visor perform flawlesly. Size XL wont fit in Hepco & Becker side or top cases. It's lightness makes long trips less tiring than my other lids do. Fits well and tight. Little buffetting from large traffic. I would like to see inserts in the front vent holes that would channel air to the face and visor. I'll easily fabricate something to fix this. Got it discount, made out like a bandit.

I ride bikes for over 3 decades had about two dozen helmet on all kinda bikes.The latest I just purchased even tho I knew is an entry level one had trouble keeping my head straight on the B-King over 60MPh.This bike has no fairing at all so a good helmets is critical.Got this laZer and very satisfied with it and was able to max the B-King out.Very comfortable didnt wanna stop riding.One thing I can bring up against it tho its not the helmets fault is when I have the anti fog insert on the shield the upper edge is failing right into the horizon most of the time but it does the job.This insert needs to be bigger to go all the way to the outer edge of the shield.Could do without this idiotic Double D racing buckle hence the 4 on features rating.
Matching up with the Transition shield puts the crown up on this beauty.

Sadly made in China.
I thought this was made in Europe, but when I received it, it was made in China :(
The Carbon Fiber has few flaws, normally you won't notice but in the light you can see the glue or clear coat has tiny bubbles.
Overall, helmet looks and feels good, but my beef is that it is made in China, and in my book, anything from China is junk.
I would not have bought it had I known it was made in China. Call me biased, but I prefer my stuff from anywhere but China if possible.

Great Light Helmet
I like this helmet very much. The materiel quality is high. It is very light and comfortable. The fit is snug but not too much. No fog with the pin-lock visor installed. Good air movement in hot weather. Great price for a real Carbon Fiber Helmet. I like the angular lines of the helmet compared to a regular round shape.

The Razor cuts the mustard... (sorry had to)
This is a slick looking helmet which drew me into trying it out. Functions are all there, venting, light weight, anit-fog etc... For the price its a great buy. I'd compare it to top brands and say it is on par. One thing lacking is the inner liner. Not too much padding in my opinion, could us a little more cushion in the crown area. We shall see how it holds up over time and use. So far awesome helmet and thrilled I took a chance on it.

Nice fit, low noise. A bit tight on my cheeks but that should ease as the miles pile up...
