LaZer Monaco Helmet 4.3 5 101 101
Need to break it in like a shoe, it stretches Initially I hated this helmet. The speakers are not ĺoud. The helmet was so tight I couldn't chew gum in it. I love the fit now. Very light and face shield works gear. I can't detect airflow due to my large windshield. August 24, 2015
Great Modular I own carbon Monaco and love the fit, comfort, weight, and quality. This was purchased for my son. He raves about it. This is a well built modular that looks and fits like a standard sport touring full face. The pricing at Revzilla is icing on the cake! August 24, 2015
Excellent deal for price, runs slightly small I bought this to replace an older AGV Miglia modular. This is clearly a much better helmet feature-wise, and with the current sale price, it's a great deal. It is quiet for a modular, the latch feels very solid, the transition shield works great, and it has very good air flow. No fogging whatsoever even without the pinlock, but the weather's warm now so I'll wait until fall for a final judgement (and if it does fog, the included pinlock will cure it, so no problem regardless). It fits a little tighter than my AGV and Nolan (all large size), but it probably needs to break in. I have a fairly elongated head shape and it presses a bit on the sides of my forehead. The style is pretty basic, but I am not a fan of flashy helmets, so that is good. Overall, if you can grab one of the last few at sale price, you won't regret it. August 16, 2015
Looks great, quite comfortable, several features included. I'm a new rider and am very pleased with this helmet. First off it looks great and I get several compliments on it. It's extremely light weight and the airflow is very nice. The noise at higher speeds is dramatically reduced when everything is fully closed. The modular face, visor, and micrometric buckle chin strap work great. I was very pleased that this helmet already included a pinlock visor insert which greatly reduces fogging when not moving and at slow speeds. The included visor is also a transition lense so there's no need for sunglasses or a separate darkened visor or visor insert. The reflector on the back of the helmet is also a nice touch. My only complaint is that the helmet felt quite tight on my head at first even though I followed the sizing guidelines, but now that I've been wearing it for a couple of weeks it seems to have stretched out and is now quite comfortable. I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone looking for a modular helmet. August 5, 2015
Tight on the cheeks, VERY TIGHT. Would be a great helmet, but... Normally a large is too big for me. This large is TOO tight. Almost painful. Isn't getting better with time. A little pressure on forehead, not much. Cheek pads are too tight even after flattening between bags of mortar for a week. I may just remove them, but I don't think it will make getting it on and off any easier. Removed helmet wiring, installed sena speakers, not a good place to install speakers, fit poorly. Strap needs to have the pieces sewn together, get in the way putting helmet on. I have to pull helmet apart at cheek area about an inch to get it over my ears, and even then they almost bleed from putting it on. Getting it off isn't much easier. Pinlock is great. Vision with optional orange pinlock is 100x better in rain and at night. Don't ride without the orange or yellow in rain or dark. If you can get it to fit, I would still recommend it. July 25, 2015
Remove the speaker cover buds! Excellent modular helmet at a fraction of the price of its lighter carbon fiber twin. The photochromic visor WORKS GREAT, in low light conditions and night time riding is completely transparent, and as light increases it darkens progressively, giving you just the right, PERFECT amount of light. The "trigger" for the lower piece is nice and sturdy, for lift up and are able to ride with the flip upright, totally awesome and different than a closed helmet. Ventilation is perfect. Extremely pleased with this purchase! July 20, 2015
Great buy First I want to start by saying I haven't wore a helmet in over 20 years. After 1 month of trying on all types of helmets and comparing prices, this one has the best of both worlds (fit and price). My head size is 58 and I tried the medium but it was hard to get on and almost impossible to take off. The large allows me to take it off and on without struggling too much. Airflow, Photochromic face shield, Pinlock and the reflective zones are all great. Only one complaint, when using the open face configuration I wish it had a cover for the sides to make it look more neat. Other than that I would recommend this helmet. June 29, 2015
Excelllent value. Purchased after watching Revzilla review and reading reader comments. For the most part accurate. I did find the helmet more difficult to put on and even more so in removing. It is getting easier with continuing use. Still have to remove glasses. As memory surveys me this has been the case with previous helmets. Found it noise level much higher than my Nolan 103 or HJC SymaxII. Ear pockets seemed shallow and needed to install speakers of Sena20 without spacers for comfort. I have not installed pin lock shield but some fogging resulted and think that will solve issue. On the positive side, I find overall comfort excellent. Air flow is good as is weight. Love the transitions face shield. Micro lock makes securing/releasing simple. Excellent value. Looking forward to many miles and am sure I will enjoy the features. June 22, 2015

Diego G: Lightness,the modular system is unique(articulates all the way to the back of the head) and the visor has pinlock+photochromatic, looks good and more like a touring not racing too. Jul 18, 2014
Jeff L: The reviews, and the Revzilla video of the helmet sold me, and it has been a great helmet for me! Jun 16, 2014
Chris P: Features for price, plain and simple. It isn't as refined and quiet as a C3 or Neotec, but I'll take it's photochromic face shield over a flip down visor any day. I can't say enough good things about the shield. The Monaco is solidly built, good looking, VERY light (even the glass version, though not as light as the carbon of course), and a great value. May 20, 2014
Kevin M: I chose this this helmet for the intermediate oval fitment and based on reviews of this helmet I have read. Beyond fitment the main points were light weight, tinted visor, variable cheek and comfort liner (you can purchase alternative liners in other sizes), and reviews I have read indicating that the ventilation was well above average. I am a touring bike rider and comfort and good fit of my helmet are critical to enjoying the ride.

Sean H: I wanted to have a lightweight modular helmet. Apr 22, 2014
Fernando N: Great line, the transitions visor rules. The fact that lazer uses only one shell size makes me think that it'll be a little snug for big heads like mine. Mar 14, 2014

Anita M: I wanted to stay with a modular helmet, but my current helmet was too heavy and giving me neck aches every time I rode. This helmet was the lightest weight modular on the market. Sep 9, 2013
Brenden C: Great helmet and functionality, but just not right for my head shape ( reg. oval ).

However I don't like that there's only 1 shell size.
Sep 4, 2013
Tracy M: Chose this helmet due to the price point as well as the lumina shield with pin lock. I live in Arizona so I also like the light aerodynamic feature and the ventilation. Watch the videos on this helmet and you will get what I mean. Chose the color for ease of care. Matte black is difficult to clean. All in all it has a desirable feature set , light weight, aerodynamic, with great visibility and air flow. Aug 20, 2013
Kyle G: After lots of research and humming and haaing I thought this would give me the best bang for the buck. The pinlock, photochromatic lens, finish and reviews are what swung me. I'll have to see if I made the right choice after putting some miles under it. I'm a daily commuter in the Pacific NW so all of these features really fit the bill. Aug 15, 2013
Tom Y: Looked great in the reviews and good reviews! Aug 8, 2013
Mike A: I originally was looking for a a helmet by another manufacturer, and even tried to purchase it from another online vendor with whom I had no problems with in the past. I have always gone to Revzilla to do my research on products and so when I was in the market for another helmet as a 40th birthday present to myself, I was disappointed when the "other" vendor screwed up my order and didn't seem to even want to make things right. So I decided after looking for a few weeks, I came back here to buy. Aug 8, 2013

Kyle P: I've had the Monaco for about 18,000 miles of riding in all weather. I've only had water get in when i left the top vent open in down pours. Light rain no issue's. I bought the rain blockers for the vent and never needed them. No leaks around the visor unless opened for air. The pinlock visor works awesome. No fogging. Overall it's a great helmet. May 18, 2014

A shopper asked: Is this helmet safer then a 3/4 helmet with CHIN IMPACT? Nov 7, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Russell I: There has been a ton of debate over this topic. In my humble opinion, modular helmets will offer a safety advantage over a 3/4 helmet for chin impacts just as a full face will perform better than a modular with the same impact. I read all the reviews and watched all the videos on this helmet before purchase and it was the correct fit for me feature wise. I'd wear this or a full face over a 3/4 any day. It's also one of the best helmets I have ever owned. Nov 7, 2013
Reply to Russell Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Donald K: just my opinion, but I'd say with the chin guard down, absolutely.
Check out sharp ratings for this helmet. According to them, the chin guard popped open in 37% of their tests… however, 63%, you're safer than a 3/4 helmet, and even in the 37%, it may have offered some protection in a real world situation.
Good luck.
and for what it's worth, this is my go to helmet!
Nov 10, 2013
Reply to Donald Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
guillermo f: It may prove to be slightly safer on chin impact then a 3/4. But if that is your main concern then you may want to consider a full face helmet they are safer, lighter, and quieter then all modular helmets. I have no reservations about my Monaco its light comfortable, looks and feels more expensive then what i paid for it at Revzilla. Nov 9, 2013
Reply to guillermo Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)

Tom Y: I've had 2 Monacos,both in large(58cm). The first one was snug but comfortable( the way it should fit) and lightest I've owned. The second is also snug but tighter on my cheeks w/c makes it uncomfortable (oddly the heaviest I've owned) inconsistency in quality?. I am confident it will break-in, but the weight difference? I love the transition visor (but wish there's a drop down visor aswell) beware, on a misty overcast ride when I went in a tunnel I had to open my visor cause I could barely see the bike tailights ahead of me. Base on the first Monaco I highly recommend, but definitely no on the second. If you can try them on for size is good, but if you can't then it's risky. I suggest other brand w/ drop down visors is the way to go. Shoei, HJC.... Sep 22, 2014

Albert E: I owuld opt for one size up to the LG. I bought a large and my nugget was firmly in the LG range and it felt very snug from the start. The foam eventually settles, and now (about 6,000 miles on) I miss the face-hug a little.

Be aware that because it is a purpose-built shell (ie not a normal helm with the chinbar cut-off) you will need the bar open in order to put it on. I had switched from an HJC and didn't realize that requirement until after I had repeatedly failed to slam my big head through what is very clearly meant to be a neck-hole.

It lives up to the reviews, I rode straight across the sonoran chihuahuan and mojave deserts without sunglasses--love that visor.

A shopper asked: How does the face shield react at night with the head on traffic head lights? Does it auto tint as well? Mar 26, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Albert E: The tinting quickly becomes ubiquitous. If it tints at night, you wont notice a difference, much like when it tints fully in sun versus partially in shade. I've worn it cross country a few times, and didn't need sunglasses in the brightest deserts, or have any particular glare problems driving through major metropolitan areas at night.

Dead bugs will impact the tint on the visor below, but it will adjust a few minutes after you scrape them off.
Mar 26, 2015
Reply to Albert Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
John A: The tint reaction is caused by UV rays not just light itself. At night you won't have any issues with it darkening. As the previous poster mentioned, in daylight if you have a bug hit your visor or anything opaque that stays for a moment, you will have a bright, clear spot when you clear them away but it will darken quickly.

William E asked: I have this helmet. This is my first flip-up. I wasn't sure of what part to grab to shut it, so I opened the face shiled and pulled down on the chin bar, which unfortunately broke the breath guard. I thought, no big deal, I can replace it, right? Well, it does not seem to be removable, and I actually broke the connecting points forcing it out. Apparently Revzilla sells replacements, so I am perplexed about the supposed ability to remove it. Please shed some light on this. Thanks. Jan 27, 2014

William E: Dan from Revzilla emailed me and explained that the breach guard tabs are glued into the holes. He offerred a replacement breath guard, but that is not an option due to the broken off tabs being glued into the holes. Hopefully I will find that the pinlock insert renders it irrelevant. Overall I like the helmet. Flip-up newbs, don't make my mistake. Jan 29, 2014

Larry L: I'm sorry but this is more of a technical question that you might direct towards Revzilla. When I close the helmet I use one hand across the face just under the face shield and pull down. I have had to place some lubricant on the latch a couple of times because it drys out and it makes it a lot harder to close. Keep the latch lubed. Jan 29, 2014

Brenden C asked: Since there is only one she'll size, is there any difference between installing large cheekpads in a medium helmet vs. Ordering a large helmet? Aug 31, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gary V: This helmet runs a size too small. If you normally use a medium, you will need to order at large. The cheek pads are abnormally tight. Also, you need to take out the ear pad hole fillers because they push on the ears uncomfortably.
I like the helmet, but it took 2 tries to get the fit right. Love the auto tinting shield.

Judith A S: My wife has a medium with standard cheekpads. The helmet fits her head and face pretty well. You want to have the shell of the helemt fit your head and then adjust the cheekkpads to fit your face. Buying a size larger helmet so it fits your face will compromise your safety in a crash.

Brandon D: I ordered a Medium at first and it was just way to tight along my cheekbones. Instead of buying different cheek pads I went ahead and swapped it for a large and it fits perfectly. Sep 26, 2013

A shopper asked: between the medium and large is there a difference in length. My jay leno chin was hitting the front on the medium, just wanted to see if it was worth a try with the large Mar 21, 2013

RevZilla: I have the same problem with my Arai, but up until now I wasn't self conscious about my chin! Thanks for that! On the bright side, Jay Leno owns tons of bikes, so he's totally a good role model.

The Monaco only has one shell size, so the MD and LG will be the same exact length front to back. The only difference is that the LG has slightly thinner cheek pads, which could possibly help, but may not. At the end of the day, some of us with . . . voluptuous chins . . . just have to deal with it. It's obviously not ideal, but it's not the end of the world either. It's better to have a helmet that fits well around your head but has a cramped chin area than one that fits your chin but is too loose elsewhere.

Oddly enough, Mr. Leno has a pretty informative video about sizing helmets. Google "Jay Leno Arai" and you should find it. If he can find a helmet that fits properly, so can you!

A shopper asked: I noticed the rating on the Carbon, and the Non Carbon I believe are different. The difference was mostly in comfort. Why was there such a lower score in comfort in the two models. Feb 28, 2013

zanfar: From what I have noticed, the product ratings are simply an average of the reviewers' ratings--as the two helmets have different reviewers, they will have different ratings.

I'm averaging the two product ratings together in my head to determine if this is the helmet for me.

A shopper asked: How much soace is there for the chin in the monaco?

I currently have a scorpion exo1100, and one thing I do not like is that there is little space for my chin, and I am no Jay Leno at all. Just pushing my helmet slightly into my face causes it to smack right into the chin....just imagine if I had an actual crash on impact... I found the neotec had ample space, whereas the schuberth c3 was also cramped space. This would also impact the installation of a mic for Bluetooth. How else does the Monaco compare with the neotec...functionality of the flip up latch system, etc.?

Thanks Revzilla...I love doing business with you all.

A shopper asked: is glass as good as carbon fiber?? and are these 2 helmets same besides glass to carbon fiber diff?? and the obvious 150$ Jan 15, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Safety wise, there aren't many differences between fiberglass helmets and carbon fiber ones. Carbon fiber is definitely lighter than fiberglass, so if that is a concern for you, we would definitely recommend Carbon fiber Monaco. Concerning features though, the two helmets are virtually identical. Jan 16, 2013

RevZilla: The Lazer Monaco helmet offers a long oval headshape, but does not feature an internal drop down sun-visor. However, it comes with a Lumino photochromatic face shield that becomes tinted when the sun rays become more intense, and less tinted while the luminosity decreases. Oct 12, 2012

RevZilla: You, sir, have IMPECCABLE timing! We actually had the LaZer rep out from Belgium today and touched on this VERY subject. What he told us was that the Monaco will NOT come with the blue tooth, BUT we will be carrying it, though it likely won't be until a couple of months after we get the helmet.

A shopper asked: Since the Lazer monaco is only 100 grams(3.5 oz's) less in weight than the pure carbon Monaco modular helmet, is the carbon fiber any stronger than the fiberglass version?
