LaZer Monaco Carbon Helmet 4.5 5 104 104
So light! 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. March 27, 2015
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. March 16, 2015
Helmet Only one thing to say. This is the best helmet in the market March 9, 2015
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. February 27, 2015
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. February 25, 2015
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. February 23, 2015
Good Helmet 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. February 23, 2015
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. February 23, 2015

Stuart B: I've used Lazer Helmets before when riding on my dirt bike as a younger person. Now as a touring rider, I've decided to stay with Lazer. Styling , durability, comfort and cutting edge technology all contributed to my choice. Jan 10, 2015
Michael S: I had been in the market for a good modular helmet, and after reading the reviews and positive comments about this helmet decided to give it a try. The unfortunate fact is, Lazer only uses one shell size for this entire Carbon helmet line. I could only squeeze the helmet on with much pain and gnashing of teeth. Not a good thing for a long distance touring helmet. I used Revzilla's fair return policy and did just that, returned the helmet. Jan 4, 2015
Steve N: Needed a new helmet and the reviews on this one were good. Good price for the features I was looking for. Jan 2, 2015

michael l: The promised low weight, the break back modular part in case of a accident, the included auto tint lens, nice looking design, not a pointed chin to hit sternum in a accident. A modular helmet saved my life years back, Deer strike at 55 mph. It's worth buying good safety equipment, it's a no brainer. (pardon the pun) Sep 5, 2014
Dave K: Photo chromatic and pin lock lenses already included? Can't beat that deal! Sep 2, 2014

Marc D: beautiful helmet, just didn't fit my head properly... Aug 16, 2014
Jeremy A: Light Weight, photochromic pin lock and positive customer reviews Aug 7, 2014
Brad B: I had a bad motorcycle accident 14 months ago...Among other injuries, I broke all my vertebrae in my back and neck, except 5...I choose this helmet because, while the Nolan I was wearing during my accident probably saved my life, the Nolan I bought to replace the one I was wearing in the crash is just too heavy now, and causes extreme neck pain...I am hopeful the lightest modular helmet out there will help alleviate that. Jul 30, 2014
Chris S: I wanted a very light modular that I could use for my daily commute. Plus the LaZer has the convenience of coming with a pin lock ready photo-chromatic so I don't have to worry about a second tinted shield or deal with fog in the morning. Jul 30, 2014
Ken m: could not find in canada... seems to be perfectly priced for all the features.... will wait and see.... Jul 29, 2014

David C: Was searching for helmets. Came across this one and was happy to see there was a review video. The video was extremely helpful and made me want the helmet even more. I will definitely come back to shop for other items. Apr 9, 2014
John D: Very unique, featues, photochromatic lens. Apr 3, 2014

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.

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
Reply to Amy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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?

Jun 3, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
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.
Jun 4, 2014
Reply to Rick Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
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

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? Hope not would love to have it but not if it leaks I ride in the rain and all weather types only mode of transportation. Nov 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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. When I was researching this helmet I read something along the lines of a customer complaining about it - rain getting in and I think he was referring to the top vent. I did not experience that either. Nov 13, 2013
Reply to Brian Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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

Fabian F asked: From reading several reviews almost every other person has had an issue with the extreme tightness of the cheek pads. Would going down 1 cheek pad size alleviate the tightness? Or does it get more comfortable as ride with it on and is only a matter of breaking it in? (I have big cheeks lol)
Thanks anyone who can answer.

Marc D: Hi Fabian,
I have a slim face and a 'David Bowie-type cheek thing happening' So, I don't think I can help you that much. The Monaco is a pretty snug fit, but the cheek pads were fine for me. In my 30 years of riding experience, any helmet that is immediately too comfy will only get too large on your head as it ages - a helmet should be very snug without actually hurting you. Once it can wiggle around on your head it won't be fully doing its job in a crash. My issue with the Monaco, was with the proximity of the chin bar to my nose - the helmet was too round for me (not that it is a really round fit, just not long enough to provide enough room for my facial features).
Yes, all padding and foam will compress a bit as it ages and become a bit roomier...lean on the snugger side and you will find the comfort comes briefly afterwards.
cheers! Marc

Lee M. S: Fabian - The cheek pads are tight to begin with but do break in a little. I would recommend going down 1 pad size if you have concerns. We put over 3,000 miles on the bike in one week last summer going out west and the helmets did a great job holding the rain out along with being much lighter on the neck muscles on the long ride days.

Laurence K: I had the same issue. It is VERY easily solved by simply pulling the stuffing out of the pads that rest against your (big) cheeks. Takes about 2 minutes. Now the fit is perfect & very comfortable. I would recommend this brand & model to anyone & will buy another. Hope this helps. Revzilla is the best!!!!!!! Dec 29, 2014

John D: Fabian....I have a rather large head and somewhat big cheeks too. I am a stocky 5'9" 230lbs and an XL fits really good. I will say this isnt a long helmet but more round. Your mouth and nose are pretty close to the chin guard so at high speeds (Above 150) it will press back into you face a bit. My NEXX is a long style and does not do that. This is a great modular overall with very good tight tolerances with quality feel and workmanship. Dec 30, 2014

David T asked: Is there a locking point on the helmet so it can be locked to the bike? I did not see one in the review, if not what are some of you doing to lock the helmet if you do not have a trunk. I will be on a Harley 1200 Custom so it limits my options and was thinking of using a old style bicycle cable lock and running it through the visor. Jan 18, 2015

Veronica S: I have this helmet and I really like it. The chin strap clip took a bit to get used to but it is so much quicker than the two-ring set up. The chin strap has a wide cushioned strap that goes underneath it that keeps it from digging in to my neck/throat. It does tend to catch on the collar of my KLIM Latitude jacket when I have it fully zipped up. Since I have a good sized fairing on my Harley Heritage I seldom have it zipped all the way up so that has been a plus. Dec 28, 2014

One of the main reasons that I purchased this helmet is the quck release mechanism.
I wish it would be adopted by the shoei pepole.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Paul Q: Hi Anthony
I purchased the Lazer Monaco because of its light weight, 1300 grams. The photchromatic visor was a bonus, as was the ventillation. I had a Nolan, it was very heavy and after 760kms my neck would spasm, quite painfully, with the Monaco, that neck pain is virtually gone. With the Nolan if you even thought about fogging the visor would, I had to ride with the visor open 90% of the time, ventillation was an abstract feature Nolan put in their sales ad. The Monaco has 2 sources for air intake and two ventillation exhausts which allows you to tune the amount and source of ventillation air in the the helmet. A seperate anti-fog visor is supplied but I don't use it that much and I ride in cold weather. Finally the Photochromatic visor is by far the best feature of the helmet, forget your sunglasses you'll not need them whether it is dark or sunny the rider sees the same light level inside the helmet, why this feature hasn't been adopted in other helmets is a mystery. As for the Arona I have no experience or opinion, frankly I stopped looking at helmets after I bought the Lazer. Hope this helps.

The Monaco has remove able ear pads with fairly deep pockets for the speaker assemblies and the unit unit mounts on a self-adhesive clip the you get with the U Clear system.

Andrew S asked: Once pinlock antifog shield is installed can I clean it like usual? i.e. currently I use S100 special service cleaner. Will that be okay to use on inside and outside of this photochromic shield? Oct 22, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ron T: The outer shield is fairly easy to clean with a mild cleaner and very soft rag. However, the pinlock shield is very hard to clean, I had to replace with a new one after I tried to clean it and it scratched. I'd recommend taking the entire lens shields off the helmet ( leaving shields connected) and rinsing them under running water, then lightly drying it with a super soft lens cloth.
The good thing is that the cost of replacing the inside shield is pretty inexpensive.
One more thing, don't carry any keys or sharp object in side your helmet, anything scratches that inner pinlock shield.
Good ride.

Fred R: I have to admit I don't use any particularly special cleaner on the face shield, but that being said I clean the shield, with pinlock installed, inside and out regularly with glass cleaner with no problem. In addition, the pinlock uses plastic tabs to hold it in place. With no adhesive involved it's quite easy to take it in and out of the shield when desired. Oh, and by the way....the pinlock works great. Oct 23, 2014

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,

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

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.

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...

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

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.

You have to use the stick pad. It work for me.
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!!

Douglas C: I ordered the Lazer Monaco in Large as the chart recommended and it was way too small. Could hardly get it on and then my chin touched the chin bar. It was very tight pinching the sides of my head.

I exchanged the Large Monaco for a Large Shoei Neotec. The Neotech fits great, the chin bar is easier to operate, Vents, visor and chin bar latch can all be operated easily with winter gloves on.

First time I wore it was day after Christmas 2014. Left Central IL, rode 1200 miles non stop to Fort Meyers Beach, FL (21 hours). Helmet far exceeded my expectations in cold, rain & sun.

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.

RevZilla: Actually they don't come installed, they're in a separate plastic baggy - and they're fairly easy to install / uninstall - but if you have any questions, give us a call! Mar 14, 2013

MickConnolly: I contacted the aus broker for this helmet...no sign of it coming to aus yet. Went into Peter Stevens and they could not even get me a price or when I could get it here. So my answer to you is no time soon...it does not even seem to be planned to be here yet from the info I have gathered.
Lazer direct just told me to contact the local distributor!

A shopper asked: I just measured my head, and is between 24 1/8 to 24 1/4 inches. I have an Arai RXQ in 2XL and it fits pretty good, I'm just wondering if this helmet in 2XL would fit me? Thanks. Aug 19, 2014

Jon S: 24 1/8 inches is 61 1/2 centimeters. Neither of those sizes are really considered 2xl by any helmet manufactures I have seen. It is possible the Aria you have is the wrong internal shape for your head and thus why you have a 2xl. These measurements are closer to Large, or maybe the helmet is too large. The shark is a more round internal shape, I am not sure if the Aria helmet you have is perhaps more harrow. If I was you I would order a Large Shark and if it is too loose or tight return it for the next size XL, but Shark doesn't make a 2xl. Aug 25, 2014

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

Thank you

Patrick E: Well, ...about the only honest answer I can give is ..Maybe?
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!!
ps? this is my everyday helmet. I think it's the best helmet I've ever own. and I've been riding for almost 40yrs.

Mohamad Arief M: Hi there..pls bear in mind that this helmet only hv 1 shell size and its quite tight & fit compare to my c3pro n caberg duke for the same L size..u might need to go try it 1st with ur glasses before buying...
But u can buy the bigger inner pad if it is too tight..the different between size is only on the inner thickness..
