LaZer Monaco Carbon Helmet 4.5 5 63 63
Best Modular Helmet I Have Owned I purchased this helmet to replace the Shoe Multitec I bought last year that was not working for me. In comparison to the Shoei, the Lazer Monaco is very light, much quieter and overall a much better fit for my head. I do wear glasses and have some mild discomfort above my right ear if the stem of my glasses is to close to the top of my ear. A small readjustment seems to eliminate this problem. The Transitions shield is awesome! It is now a pleasure to ride the interstate without the wind buffeting! Per other reviews, I did go up one size knowing I could change out padding if it was too big, but the small fits perfectly. Highly Recommended!! July 28, 2014
Ridiculously light, and looks badass I came from the (80k+ miles) old school Harley mindset where you don't wear a helmet. I hate helmets, and I LOVE this one. This helmet is super light - especially for a modular. The shield changes colors perfectly and goes from completely clear to very dark. I have sensitive eyes and need sunglasses all the time, but this shield gets plenty dark - so no glasses needed. The field of vision is quite a bit wider than some of the other helmets I've tried to tolerate - with this one, I could see all the way behind me with just a glance back. The vent on the top of the helmet is so good, it feels like your head is wet. I haven't been able to figure out which was is open on the mouth vent - I can't feel the difference.... This helmet fits so perfectly, and is so light - it feels like it's part of my head. LOVE IT. July 14, 2014
This thing is light! The Photochromic face shield beat expectations. Pro Side: Coming from a cheaper modular, I was blown away by how light this helmet is. I've already taken it on several multiple hour trips and it's really made a difference on comfort and neck fatigue! Carbon looks beautiful. Good venting. A little skeptical of the Photochromic shield, but I've been really impressed thus far. It only darkens just enough to make it comfortable for the wearer, rather then overly dim. It makes for a very pleasant riding experience! Cons Side: Runs a hair small overall, but is most noticeable in the lower middle of the helmet where it curves inward slightly. I ended up getting the XL cheek pads along with a L helmet. I would consider going up one side overall though to save a bit of money unless you have a narrower head. The adjustable end of the chin strap also doesn't have a clip or button to lock it down, so flaps around in the wind (It's actually pretty annoying). I added one, but tucking into my jacket collar worked OK as well. July 1, 2014
very happy with the Lazer Monaco Despite being nervous about buying a helmet without trying it on, I am glad I did. The reviews were quite helpful too. In summary, the best things about the helmet are 1) its light weight, 2) the transitions shield and 3) the pin lock. The finish is outstanding as well. Oh, and its cooling is great on the top of the head with the vent opened. All the above is the good stuff. Really, the only negative I found is that it is loud. Mind you, this is my first flip helmet having only worn full face prior to this. Maybe all flips are loud. I did find it tight at first but consistent with my Aria/Shoei sizing (I wear a large in all the helmets). For the first bit, it was tight enough that I called Revzilla to order the different head.cheekpad set but was advised to wait. I am glad I did as the Revzilla rep was correct. Some more time breaking in and all is good. I have recommended this helmet to my friends. I especially like the transitions shield because: a) I don't have sore ears wearing sunglasses for a long time, b) the tinted shield area is so much larger than the standard flip down shade visors and c) the transitions works well in almost all settings (just not into the direct sunlight) where it is bright enough that I have to wear sunglasses in addition to the tinted shield. June 23, 2014
Cheap Retainer Screw Bought two of these....one for wife. So far in six months of use, each of us has had this cheap plastic Retainer Screw break its' tabs. These hold on the (very nice) photovoltaic visor. Seems they could engineer a more durable part, like hard nylon, aluminum or other. Mfgr. sent Revzilla spares, so they are aware of this weak link. Lousy problem when it breaks while you are on a road trip. Otherwise, nice helmet. June 19, 2014
All around great product I purchased the bluetooth Lazer Link, the volume is limited, other than that, I like it is hidden inside the helmet. Mic does stay in place on the helmet. may return lazer link. seems like a design flaw. June 17, 2014
Worst Front Vent System Design I'm giving the helmet one star for poor vent design and a incomplete manual. Here is the vent design problem: The vent in front has 3 settings left, middle and right. I've watched 3 reviews of this helmet, including the RevZilla review, a Motorcycle magazine helmet review on Youtube and someone who was riding their bike on Youtube and EVERY review disagrees with one and another what each of the three vent settings do. And I can agree, it's not even in the manual! The air is so diffused on each setting, I can't even tell which setting is opened or closed. Bad engineering design Lazer! Other than I have no idea if the vent is open or closed, the rest of the helmet is fine, fits as it should and I like the monochromatic visor. June 16, 2014
Very pleased, esp. with light weight and Transitions visor My neck and shoulders no longer ache! The light weight is super. The Transitions visor is simply great, works well in very bright sun. The chin strap ratchet works very well. Others have complained about the adjustable end of the chin strap flapping about. I just slipped the adjusting buckle up enough to hold the extra length. This helmet does fit small. I've worn XL in Schuberth, Arai, Shoei, and Nolan but exchanged this helmet in XL for an XXL. It's tight getting the helmet on and off and the chin bar release button is a bit hard to operate. Ventilation is the best I've had in any helmet. There's just enough friction with the visor so you can crack it open short of the first detention. May 19, 2014

Amy S: I live in Las Vegas, and it doesn't get much hotter or sunnier. The photo-chromatic visor is quite dark and completely clears as needed. It's so bright here I would actually wear sunglasses under the helmet as well if I could. But that is one complaint I have about the helmet - I have found it impossible to wear wire (as in, very thin) glasses under the helmet. May 18, 2014

David M: I don't have any experience with photo-chromatic glasses but I found this shield works quite well. It's not super dark but good enough. The only issue I have is going thru tunnels as it does not clear up quick enough but I think that's expected. May 12, 2014

A shopper asked: Watching your review videos on this carbon fiber helmet and the other Monaco fiber glass helmet and reading the reviews from customers who have bought these 2 specific helmets talking about the noisiness. Is this carbon fiber helmet less noisy then the fiber glass helmet?

Also, I wear the Bell Mag 9 helmet, medium in size. Will this carbon fiber helmet fit the same?

Thanks,

RONALD M: Unfortunately I can't speak to much comparitably about the quietness of carbon because the Monaco is the only full face helmet I own. I did have a Shoei for only a few days and I like the Monaco a lot more. It is light weight very comfortable and quiet enough for me. I know when I switch to my Bell 1/2 helmet it takes me a few days to readjust to the wind noise.

My Bell and my Monaco are both a large however with the Monaco I bought the XL cheeks pads because I found that the ones that came with the helmet tighter than I like but, that's my preference.

Hope this helps

Rick T: Hello,
As far as the noisiness compaired to the other Monaco fiberglass helmet I can't say cause I have never worn the fiberglass model, but I do have a shoei fiberglass flip up helmet and there is no noticeable difference in noise levels.
The Lazer Monaco carbon helmet is true to fit, so just make sure you have an accurate head measurement and it should fit fine.

John D: I own the carbon fiber version and yes you get some wind noise but not bad. Any modular helmet is going to be noisier than a full face one piece helmet. There would be no difference in noise between the monaco carbon or glass version. Also I should mention the neck roll is nice and snug and the chin guard net helps keep air from entering underneath.

A shopper asked: I have a Modular Helmet and while riding in the rain it leaks in to the helmet from the top of the visor so was just wandering dose the Monaco Lazer carbon fiber helmet leak in the rain also?

Richard A C: Mine does not leak, however, I ride a Goldwing, so it not like I my helmet is getting the full force of the water like it might on other bikes. Additionally I have not yet installed the little rubber plugs into top vents. I carry them on the bike as I expected to need this sometime this summer when I did get caught in the rain storms, but thus far the Monaco is dry. BTW I expect you will grow very attached to the transition shield, as I did :) Nov 13, 2013

Alan K: I have only ridden in the rain two times since purchasing the Lazer Monaco Carbon helmet and it did NOT leak. I ride a Victory Vision which has a full faring and electric windshield that diverts rain over my head. I do not know if the helmet would perform the same on a naked bike.

Over all, I have been extremely satisfied with the helmet, especially the weight.

Brian F: I have ridden a few times in the rain and once a fairly heavy downpour and I did not notice any leaking.

I did not experience that either. Nov 13, 2013

Brent K: Mine leaks almost every time it rains. It's not coming from the top vent either, it comes from the visor gasket not having a proper seal. It drives me nuts and I know water is beading off on the outside but it comes on the inside and stays there and eventually starts to affect my vision. Apr 7, 2014

I do ware glasses, but not while I ride. I would think there's enough room, but then that's only a guess on my part?
I guess my advice would be to order the helmet and try it out. If it doesn't fit with the glasses? Send it back!
HopE that helps!!

Melissa L: The visor is photochromic. As shown, it is dark as it would be outside in sunlight. Generally, inside or in cloudy conditions, it will lighten some or completely.

I don't know of any mirrored visors available for this helmet. As stated, the supplied one will get quite dark relatively quickly when exposed to sunlight but it will not appear mirrored.

Steve B asked: Hello - I have a question around the sizing of this helmet. I currently have a Shoei Hornet for off road and wear an XL in that helmet. Obvious concerns for me around buying a helmet online are mainly around fit and sizing so can someone who knows the comparison assist me or, what specific measurement are they referring to in this sizing chart, e.g. is it forehead to base of the head, largest part, etc? May seem like a dumb question but for $500, I'd like to get it right the first time.

Many thanks,
Steve

David M: Not sure if this would help you, if not maybe someone else can benefit. I have a small Arai Corsair V, a MS (medium small) AGV Corsa and a small LaZer Monaco and they all fit perfect. I do warn that the LaZer Monaco is the hardest helmet to take off but of course it is a modular helmet and you open it before taking it off. I've never had a Shoei so I can't compare sizing with the Shoei. I measured just above my eyebrow at 55.5 cm. Jun 27, 2014

Douglas R: Love my helmet, light weight and the lens changes from clear to smoke gray don't even notice it.
Sizing I wear a small but purchased the medium helmet but had to get the XL cheek pads, fits nice now, runs a small, I contacted Revzilla and told them my head dimensions and they directed me in the right direction.

Revzilla has a youtube video on sizing, very good.

Jim B: Definitely go a size up. These are typically narrow vs all other helmets. Great helmet, but I normally have a large, but needed XL cheekpads for it to fit properly. I do recommend the helmet, but it is wise to order a 2XL if you normally wear an XL.

A shopper asked: Hi, I want to know witch helmet is better for me, between : LaZer Monaco Carbon Fiber Helmet or SHOEI RF-1200.?? I want to use it for long distances, normal speed, all kind of roads.

Ermin M: I can not comment on differences between helmets but I use my Lazer Monaco behind wind screen and it is great for that. I imagine it would be noisier than SHOEI RF-1200 in the wind but it is to be expected as flip helmets usually are. I just rode 7300km in mine across the USA and I loved it. It is light, it has photo sensitive shield and it stayed dry in some torrential rains.
I did not have to take it off at the stops and I was able to use my SLR camera and drink water with the front up. It also comes with a pinlock screen and that is not cheap if bought separately.

As for bluetooth we used G9 scala devices. They worked fine at any speed. Lazer does come prewired for their own solution but I did not purchase that. They have notice that volume is not enough for high speeds and that would have been an issue on my trip.

I would recommend it to anyone and for the price I think it can not be beat...

Cheers!

S K: I think this would be an excellent choice for you. It is very lightweight (for a full face helmet) so comfortable on long rides. It has the photochromic shield so adjusts automatically to changing lighting conditions. It also has cutouts and wiring (for their own Bluetooth). You just pop out the foam around the ear, replace it with your speakers, and run the wiring. I love mine for all riding except when it gets too hot down here in Florida, and then resort to a half helmet. Hope this helps. Jun 5, 2014

Paul Q: Hi
I've worn the helmet for rides up to 700kms ( 437 miles), neck fatigue is minimal, ventilation is great and the visor removes the need for sunglasses. I use a Uclear intercom system, no boom mic and it's Bluetooth compatible so I can use my ITouchallong for tunes and the Garmin connects quickly also. The Uclear also accommodates a cell phone but I don't indulge. I haven't used a Shoei so I can't comment. Hope this helps.

The boom follows the helmet's shape and at the end you bend it and put it inside the helmet and it doesn't bother you at all, but i guess that depends on how the helmet fits you. Since the boom is flexible you can adjust it every time depending on your needs.
I'm happy with it. Love the helmet and the G9!!

Alan K: If the Scala doesn't work for you, consider switching to the Sena SMH-10. I have it installed with the clamp and instead of the boom mic, I use the wired mic velcro'd to the front edge of the cheek pad. It works just as well as a boom mic directly in front of your mouth. Apr 25, 2014

Ermin M: I have G9 and I do not use sticky pad. It is standard mount against the shell of the helmet. Mic boom goes down and in the helmet. There is plenty of room and you need to position mount so that mic ends up in the right place. Jun 5, 2014

RevZilla: LaZer helmets do not come with Bluetooth pre-installed. The helmets will be set up to accept LaZer Bluetooth systems though. On a related note, we are expecting a Bluetooth System to be available from LaZer in the next few months. Oct 22, 2012

Greg D asked: I see some discussion of a Lazer Bluetooth system but I already have the Sena SMH10R system fit into my Arai XD-3. Are the ear pockets deep enough to fit the speakers into this helmet? The speakers are about 2" diameter and 1/4-1/2" thick. Mar 15, 2014

Paul Q: Hi Greg
I use a U-Clear system and I didn't have an issue with the ear cups, lots of room. Wire exit is a little far back on the helmet though. Ventilation, weight and the photo chromatic visor is amazing, I will buy another when it's time to buy a new helmet. Hope this helps.

Greg D: Yeah, I know how the music sounds. I have been using the Sena for a over a year now. Tried music once. Don't need the distraction while riding. Mar 20, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm ready to buy an XL Lazer Monaco Carbon Fiber helmet when you can include the Bluetooth setup with the price. Do you think there will be such a sale? Nov 26, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jay G: As a consumer I can only guess at the answer, but am skeptical this will ever be available since doing so would further raise the price of the helmet and many people have particular preferences as to what brand of communications system they want to use. For example, my riding friends and I use SENA systems, and I was able to easily transfer the unit from my old helmet to this one. I hope this helps. Dec 9, 2013

Steven J: Don't know about a sale but check out the review on the lazer Bluetooth. They aren't good. As for the helmet, I love mine. Is sized small, I wear a XL which usually is fine but the lazer is snug. Love the face shield and light weight. Dec 9, 2013

Nathan B: Yes. I recently purchased this product and within the User's Guide it states the Lumino Photochromic visor protects against UVA and UVB radiation. (As a side note the percent light transmission ranges from 20% to 80% according to the incident UV radiation - the more UV rays the darker the visor) May 27, 2014

Ron R: Good luck with that answer. Just an fyi...I purchased this and the Neotec and I don't use the lazer anymore. Take a look at the Neotec if you haven't already. A little heavier but quieter and a more solid feeling helmet IMHO. Feb 9, 2014

Paul Q: Hi I use a U-Clear system which is external and has no boom mike to mess with. The helmet is great as far as ventilation, weight , visibility and the auto-dimming of the visor. Why restrict yourself to any one system, personally I prefer to select a systems that have the merits that I want. Price wise the helmet is worth the money for the quality of helmet you get, doubt I will be changing manufacturers anytime soon. Dec 13, 2013

A shopper asked: I just received my Larzer Carbon from Revzilla and love the helmet and the customer service is, again excellent.
I am assuming the rain stoppers come installed, but I am writing to validate this assumption.
Neither he included manual nor Lazer Web site offer instructions on how to install and remove the rain stoppers.
Before I go prying, I though it best to ask the experts! :)

Germax: I did not get stoppers with mine, if there are installed you will get no air flow so it is quite clear. I got no instructions but it is just rubber item that closes air intake. Contact support and they will send you stoppers if you did not get them.

Cheers!

Lazer direct just told me to contact the local distributor!

Greg D asked: I am interested in this type of helmet because I often shoot with a DSLR camera while out riding. I would like to be able to stop, flip up the front, grab my camera, look through the eye piece and get the shot. I tried on a Shoei Neotec and I could almost get the body of my Canon EOS 40D up to my face but it was a tight fit. Can anyone tell me if they can fit their DSLR to their face with the lid open on this helmet? Mar 15, 2014

Matt F: I dont use a camera with my helmet on but I will say that I love this hemet,it is so light and confortable,the only thing with this helmet was the removable cheek cushions that came with the size helmet i ordered were way to tight,I ordered smaller ones which were actually bigger because the size goes by your head/ cheek size so I had to order larger ones which are actually phisically smaller,totally backwards logic but it is what it is I guess.

sthompson: I would highly recommend the sena10. If you buy from Revzilla you can get money off your next purchase from them. In my. Case I bought a pair of sena10's and got $10 off my next purchase! The sena10 work great if you have a blue tooth phone or gps. I have an IPhone and downloaded a gps app on my phone now I can hear gps directions in my helmet along with my music from my phone easy to install to you helmet too.
I can send you a pic if you like hope this helps
