LaZer Monaco Helmet
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.

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!

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.

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.

Great helmet. Super light, great view from transitions face shield.
Now the bad, sizing. Not even close. You measure your head and consult the guide and it's not even close. I don't know whose to blame. Lazer or Revzilla. But sizing is not even close. Go bigger.

Light weight and very comfortable.
A bit on the loud side, especially if you take out the velcro ear pads.
The plastic piece just above the nose feels very flimsy.
Good all weather helmet. Have worn in weather from the low 30F to mid 80F for a few hours at a time with no issues. Doesn't fog up even in the high humidity of St Louis. The hi-viz stands out great and is a nice complement with a hi-viz jacket.
Very light weight! Rode from St Louis to Cincinnati and back with no issues. The Lumino Photochromic visor tints incredibly fast, most of the time I don't even realize it until I flip the visor up how tinted it really is.

Best for price and features
Best thing about this helmet is the visor and the ear space. My complaints are that this helmet hurts putting it on and is extremely loud even with ear plugs. The photochromic visor is unbelievable. Gets dark in the sunlight and at night clears up. The ear space is very roomy cause I got got somewhat big ears. This helmet is light and stylish. Would definitely recommend.
