LaZer Monaco Carbon Helmet
I've had this helmet for some time now. I've taken a few rides with it, the longtest being a few weeks ago. I took about a 2.5 hour ride.
The helmet is super light, doesn't tire my neck, and it does good in the wind. There's plenty of airflow and I love the clicking latch of the chin strap.
I have only one complaint. When nearing the 3 hour mark my ears start to get annoyed towards the top outer lobe.
Other than that complaint, I absolutely love this helmet. I can't get over how light it is and I love having the monochromatic tint! ( Think that's what its called.)
p.s. the "Bang for the Buck" part is probably just me being cheap. I rated it at its "regular" price. Though I did catch it on sale for about $200 off.

I Got a Small Head
Great helmet for the money I think. Does a pretty good job of cutting sound. I wear a 6 1/2 to 6 3/4 hat size (depending) so I got the size small. The cheek pads were real tight and ended up ordering the size medium cheek pads and that made it a perfect fit. After wearing it a few hundred miles, it fits a lot better. Be careful with the liner snaps however. They are a little fragile. I broke on the cheek pad side when I changed those out, on the second one I did.

Only one thing to say.
This is the best helmet in the market

Nice and light
I've had this for a comfortable months and this helmet is as good as advertised. Its very light so that'll make it very hard for me to convert to another modular helmet. The visor works great in the sunlight and the style looks good with my cbr650.

Great Helmet the carbon fiber looks extremely cool
After expending almost 2 weeks looking for the perfect modular helmet. I found it, the monaco is light, looks cool, the Lumino photochromic works great. I wear glasses and in order to remove the helmet, I need to go to full face remove the glasses and then remove the helmet. I will strongly recommend this product.

Great Valued Helmet
I ordered the XL as the Large was all out but was debating on getting the XL anyways from reading past reviews. Well the XL fits me good. This carbon fiber helmet rocks! It looks awesome, super light, and very durable. I had been shopping around for quite some time for a decent modular helmet. It came down to the Shoei Neotec and this Razor Monaco Carbon Helmet. I chose this Razor because of all the features that come standard with it for the cost, vs the Shoei would be double the price if you added the same features (pinlock lens and Lumino photochromic faceshield). Not to mention that it is lighter. I did remove the Razor's Bluetooth wiring from inside and installed the Sena SMH10 which fit great. The noise level is ok but I do have a pretty loud Harley V-Rod. I also installed a snap on the chin strap so that the excess doesn't flap around. Well I would greatly recommend this helmet for anyone looking for a new modular.

This helmet looks great. Buffeting at speed is minimal. Fairly quiet. Great field of view. The transitions shield is wonderful. I wear glasses and I do not need to carry extra sunglasses, changes quickly. Tough to put on. Also, there is a notch on the right side that has torn open my ear twice. I am going to grind it off. Beware! Overall it is a very good helmet.

Great deal and a great price.
The Lazer Monaco Carbon came in just a hair behind the Shoei in all its safety tests. The fact that you get true carbon fiber, a transition face shield, and the anti fog pinlock system included in the price makes this a no brainer of a purchase. The round shape takes a little getting use to because your chin is very close to the front of the helmet. This gets in the way a bit if you choose to have the bluetooth system installed. The microphone is right up against your mouth which is a bit distracting. People can hear you good on a call but I would prefer a little more space. Overall it is a great helmet with the Revzilla sale price which makes it half the cost of the leading competitor.
