LaZer Monaco Window Pure Carbon Helmet 4.3 5 30 30
Lazer Monaco Carbon defines light weight in helmets Monaco is a great looking, fairly quiet, very light flip front helmet. Warning for eyeglasses wearers though, the shell is so stiff and the cheek fit so snug that you may not be able to put on or remove the helmet with your glasses on. Don't get me wrong, glasses fit fine but if you are buying this style of helmet so you don't have to remove your glasses to put the helmet on you may be disappointed. Lazer offers different sized cheek padding which may fix this, but the fit is so nice on my head that i'm reluctant to try different sizes. I have other excellent helmets that I wear regularly but the light weight of the Monaco is constantly noticeable and welcome. Its too early to tell but it could become my favorite lid. December 15, 2014
Great helmet for touring. Lightweight plus transition shield. Lightweight, stylish, full carbon helmet. Sizing runs a little small. Helmet lets a lot of wind noise in when you turn your head. Great for touring since it comes with a transition shield... no need for sunglasses. December 15, 2014
Work for me 99% The helmet IS very lightweight, which is awesome! It seems BIG (outside dimersions) compared to my non modular helmet, but since its so light, who cares? The Transition lens feature is helpful (I hate to have to jam sunglasses on), BUT it's still pretty tough to see when you're headed towards the sun when it's low in the sky, so I still carry sunglasses with me. Field of vision is very good, only a slight turn lets you see behind you. I open the chin to take on and off which makes it so much easier. If you do open the chin while riding/stopped, be aware you really have to snap it back down Hard for it to catch on the latch. Least favorite thing: The chin strap closure is not comfortable to me, especially when I have the neck fastened on my jacket..too much bulk happened at the neck. I prefer the D Ring closure. Also, you cannot lock this expensive helmet to your bike! December 15, 2014
Overall Great Product! I've only used one other helmet in my life and that too was a modular (Shark Evoline 3 ST Moovit Lumi Helmet), so I can only compare it to that. Noise: Its not bad but its louder than my other helmet. Durability: Never crashed so don't know Weight: It's very lightweight one of my favorite features Pro: Lightweight, Pre-wired for Bluetooth unit, Modular, Photochromic lens, Anti Fog shield attachment, Cons: Loud December 13, 2014
Good but not ideal for smaller heads This is my first premium helmet purchase. My old helmet was an icon alliance that i was never really happy with. This helmet feels a lot nicer than my old icon. The interior looks and feels a lot nicer, the carbon fiber looks really nice, i almost regret buying this window version where the carbon is partially obscured by the white paint. That said i figure no one would notice the carbon fiber when i'm riding anyways and the white will help with visibility so i still think i made the right choice. I measured my head at 56cm (22") and based on reviews i went with a medium helmet as most people was saying it runs small. Well after wearing the helmet for a few minutes i realized that only the cheek pads are tight, the rest of the helmet actually feels a lil large to me. I think a small helmet with large or medium cheekpads would fit me better than the medium i got. I have not decided if i should return it yet, as cheek pads cost an extra $20 plus the hassle of exchanging it and not knowing for sure if the small would fit me (if i bought this at a store i would defidnally go try on a small though. I should also point out that it is impossible to put on this helmet without lifting/opening the chin bar. I thought it would be just the same as a full face and i could just leave it in full face position all the time, but this is not the case. Having said that, i realized that this allows the helmet to have a much tighter fit to the lower part of my face, it feels more secure and less likely to come off in a crash... since once again i can't remove the helmet without first flipping up the chin bar. I don't know if this is an inherent advantage of all modular helmets or just this one, but i guess the trade-off of the extra hassle of putting on/removing was worth the security bonus. I also wear glasses and am happy to report that my glasses fit fine and i did not experience the discomfort some of the other reviewers experienced. In fact coming from a full face helmet, i found it much easier to put on my glasses with this helmet because i could put them on with the chin bar lifted. Now for the cons. Revzilla mentions that there is only one shell size for this helmet. I didn't really think about it until i pulled the helmet out of the box. This thing looks big. One shell size means my helmet would be the same size as a 2xl helmet. And it does look a little big in my head. My neighbor (who doesn't know anything about bikes or helmets) mentioned it looked wrong somehow but couldn't tell me what looked wrong but looking at myself in the mirror i can tell it looks slightly too big for my head. With that said i think the medium should be the smallest size anyone should buy, if you have a small head this helmet would look huge on your head. Another disadvantage i realized is weight, one size shell means that smaller helmets would need to have more padding to fill the extra space making the smaller helmets weigh more than the larger ones. While this helmet is lighter than my icon alliance it did not feel super light to me. Lazer has other full face carbon fiber helmets that weigh less though (like the kestral) if weight is your main concern. Overall i am pleased with the helmet, i'm not "satisfied" but i think the pros outweigh the cons. The main reason for purchasing this helmet was for the value since i paid $300 for it and it comes with the pinlock and photochromic shield, and that alone is worth $100+. I definitely would not be happy if i paid full price for it. I should point out that i was not looking for a modular helmet, and would have bought the kestral + photochromic shield (which costs the same and is lighter) but based on the reviews for the kestral it didn't sound like it was very quiet and i thought i was getting a better deal with this one, plus i figured modular helmet would be a bonus.

This product has great features I initially bought a Shark Evoline 3 ST Arona Helmet and I returned that helmet immediately after I saw how chunkily the sun visor flapped around inside the helmet when I opened the box. I was not about to disassemble the Shark helmet to try and fix what-ever was loose to begin with. Being able to see/feel/touch/try on both helmets, that is the Shark and this LaZer helmet; I can say this much about the two helmets... The LaZer Monaco helmet is TWICE the helmet of the Shark helmet. The only minor thing the Shark helmet had going for it was the chin guard being able to move to the back of your head...BIG DEAL.... it is not worth it. Save you time and anguish and get the LaZer helmet right off the bat. November 3, 2014
The best helmet The comfort level is excellent after a little break-in period. I found the cheek pads was to tight even if I measured carefully and purchased a Medium, but even with the chin bar up, the helmet was still a little too tight in that area only. I rode a few hundred miles to account for break-in, but ended up swapping to the x Large cheek-pad thankfully The Morpho System Plus in the Lazer Monaco allows you to tailor your helmet for the perfect fit. They were easy to snap in and now the helmet fits me perfectly.. To go from full face to open face helmet is also very easy even on the fly. The one button operation is simple and the position of the button on the helmets mouth and chin protector directs your hand easily to the spot. I like the transition lens it works great. October 24, 2014
Great overall Carbon Helmet Pros: Very comfy. Transition lens works great. Modular feature is great in stop and go traffic. Air flow is great, Venturi effect actually sends cool air in even when outside temp is in the 90s. Rare, 10 people at a bike night WON'T have this helmet. Don't have to change shield between day and night. Will not fog up! Pre-wired for internal bluetooth system. Price is great because of 4 things.(Modular, Carbon, Pin lock, Transition Lens, ratchet strap) Cons: Lack of D-ring or other way to secure helmet to bike when not riding. Noise level is good with ear pads installed but once removed to add speakers or more space, noise level goes up. Feels nice when wearing but Icon Aiframe/Alliance fit me better. Consider ICON Carbon. Bluetooth system has bad reviews. Consider aftermarket bluetooth. August 26, 2014

Alberto B: I wear glasses most of the time because contacts irritate me. I have transition glasses but they don't transition with other helmets because of the UV protection on the shields.

Joel Q: Super features !! Photo reactive shield , modular Ultra light weight !! AND Looks Groovey !! Jul 30, 2014
Chris P: This is my second Monaco. The first one is being replaced after 17 months of use because of a drop. I strayed and checked out an RPHA Max, but the shape doesn't fit my head shape, and I had some other issues (see my review of the RPHA Max). My only two knocks on the Monaco is that it is a little loud at highway speeds (ear buds take care of that,) and there is no snap or retention for the loose end of the chin strap. Otherwise, it rocks and is my personal favorite. Jul 17, 2014
Tarou N: Its cool! Jun 13, 2014

A shopper asked: I measured my head as instructed and got a 58cm. Im in between a Medium and Large and looking to get the Window Pure Carbon. Im getting conflicting opinions on which to get as the reviews have said they run small and I should get the large but I don't want to get the large and be left with a helmet that could have a better snug fit. Would appreciate your help on this. Need to be certain and dont want to go through bringing the helmet back for a replace as I live outside the US. Do I get a Large or Medium? Dec 18, 2013

Frank M: Regarding your sizing question for the Lazer Pure Carbon Monaco helmet. I have an oval to round shaped crown that measures 561/2 cm. I also have a square jaw and wide cheekbones, making my face more square or round rather than long. The Lazer size chart says S is 55-56 and M is 57-58.

I bought the Medium and substituted the thinnest cheek pads to accommodate my jaw/cheeks. It fits snugly enough around the crown and chin and does not slip or move at high speeds. If I had bought the Small, the fit around the crown would have been fine, but I would have had difficulty spreading the sides to get it on and off.

I bought mine last winter. I like the helmet. I'm sure there are more reviews available to read than last winter. Pay attention to how they say head and face shape affect the fit.

Best of luck'

Tracy D M: All the helmets have the same exterior shell. It is the padding that makes the size differences.

The helmet fits small so I would recommend getting the larger size.

I'm normally an extra small size, but the revzilla team said I should get the small helmet. It is very snug, so I ordered the medium sized cheek pads for around $30. Now the helmet fits perfectly.

Gavin R: I got the medium and for reference I also have a medium aria. The fit is similar, in my opinion, but the lazer Monaco does have a few pressure points I have not experienced with other helmets. The main points are at the jawbone where the straps run into the helmet. It has improved with wear but is still noticeable. Hope that helps a little. Dec 21, 2013

Darlene R: To A Shopper:

Nick W asked: Couple of questions:

shape. Shoei RF1100 fits me great - as does Neotec (small). Aria helmets don't. Is the shape of the Lazer similar to shoei in shape?

Visors - do you carry them in stock?

Modular: can you ride with chin/visor up or is it strictly for talking/eating etc.

Thanks

Steven M: I would say shape is more oval similar to Shoei. The Lazer has much thinner padding though. lazer is also a tight fitting helmet. order to the larger size.
The chin bar can be up while riding but at speed will be effected by wind pushing your head back. Lazer also builds in a breakaway device in case of a crash with the chin bar up it will flip all the way back.
It is a great helmet once you get accustom to it.

Feargus O: I have not tried on the Shoei RF 1100, but webBikeWorld rates both the Shoei RF 1100 and the LaZer Monaco as both being neutral in shape. I have had the Nolan n104 and n90, and the Zox Gennesis and it is similar in shape to these helmets. My head size is 59 cm which is supposed to be a size Large in the LaZer Monaco. It was painfully small for me. I sent it back and got an extra-large and it fits well. It is very tight to put on initially, but it has gotten easier with use. I love the light weight and the amount of air that it flows. It can be ridden with the chin bar either up or down. Nov 15, 2013
Reply to Feargus Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Darlene R: Shape: I know that this helmet fits better than any other Helmets I have tried or owned. It is light and the air noise or wind turbulence is minimal.

Visor: Awesome...I love it. Changes from Clear to Dark so quietly....gee I hope I don't need to replace.

Modular: I ride all the time with the Chin/Visor up (as I live 6 mos. in FLA), it does not pull my head back with the wind. The Modular flips up easily and returns to a full face with a nice click.

I bought this helmet for my Solo cross country, it was the best investment.

David K: I wore shoei modular helmets for years.
Get exact size for your head, can be adjusted with larger sized cheek pads.
Tight fit to start but, like most helmets has a bit of give a wearing, then gets comfortable.
Can ride with visor up, I do in heavy traffic on hot day, much quieter with
visor down

Gene M: Do not know about comparison in fit. Later is relatively noisy. Much more so than my Nolan's have been light weight is nice but a trade off with the noise. I do not ride with chin bar up...only with visor up. Nov 14, 2013
Reply to Gene Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Nick W: The chromo visor sounds great - has me thinking the Monaco over the C3 & Neotec.
BUT... $140 replacement lens.
How easy does the lens scratch? I've used the reflective lenses on Shoei before but they do scratch up easy.
Thanks for the advice to date.

Frank R: You don't *have* to, but it is difficult for me to get it on without opening it. It is much easier with the chin bar open. I have the carbon in size small, the helmet seems pretty stiff. Spreading it enough to get my head in is tough. Mar 10, 2014

David H: Middle is "intermediate" open. I just tested this with a can of Dust-off. .. if the helmet is facing you on the table, putting the lever all the way to the right seems to put more air into the helmet. It would be nice if the company would be a little clearer on this! :) Jul 26, 2014

Frank R: Well, supposedly center is off, left or right is open, but I honestly can't tell much difference. I think the air coming up under the chin curtain probably overwhelms it. Maybe this winter when the air is colder I'll be able to tell when it's open. Sep 18, 2014

Cedric B asked: I love the photochomatic shield BUT the helmet instructions say that it should not be used at night. This seems to defeat the point: based on these instructions if you're riding somewhere during sunlight hours with the photochromatic shield, and then ride back after dark you are supposed to remove the photochromatic shield and put a regular shield?!? Can someone explain why there may be issues with using it at night? If you have experience please share it. Jul 27, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael C: Not an issue in the slightest, the visor is virtually clear at night. It's probably a legal requirement in some country or other.

On a side note, after lots and lots of Km thus is the first helmet that I still love once the euphoria of buying has died away. It is a very good helmet.

Tracy D M: I found no need to change the shield at night. It will automatically lighten in the dark. The transition isn't instantaneous so they probably put that statement in as a disclaimer (?).

I find the transition works perfectly and I will never go back to a non photochromic face shield.

Feargus O: Because it is photochromatic, it turns dark in sunlight and clear when the sun goes down. There will be no trouble using it at night. For me, it was not dark enough during the day.

Cedric B: I agree with you; I am just trying to understand why the manufacturer puts such a restrictions in the product manual. The only thing I can think of is undesired darkening of the shield when crossing path with a car's high-beams. Jul 30, 2014
Joe R asked: Two more questions. Is the com system wiring removable (so I can install my Harley system)? I see they are supposed to be eyeglass friendly, but are the really? Dec 5, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert B: The com system wiring is under the lining and shouldn't get in your way for some other system. I didn't even know it was there at first.

As for wearing eyeglasses, you kind of need to put the helmet on and put your glasses on with the chin bar up. It is possible to put the helmet on with glasses on but it isn't easy. One reason is that the helmet is very tight when new. Yo might have seen other reviews that say to get a size larger. But after 6 months mine is no longer so tight. But, yes, I wear yellow polarized sunglasses all the time.

Rebecca E: I'm not sure about the wiring harness as I don't want a com system in this helmet. I have a Schuberth helmet for that. I wanted a lighter helmet and this is super light.

Eyeglass friendly? Yes. I can comfortably wear mine. The laZer doesn't squeeze my face at all, yet it fits nicely. I believe it's a rounder helmet than the Scuberth.

Out of all the helmets I've had, this one can stay on my head all day without getting that helmet headache.

gabi s: the wires are located behind the body of the helmet, I doubt you can remove it and would not suggest it at all.
not eyeglasses friendly, however the helemnt includes Lumino photochromic Pinlock faceshield & pinlock lens included which works very good in sunny days.

Marc O: Yes Joe the com system wiring is removable, I replaced it with a sena 20s com system. By the way you will enjoy the helmet. I don't have any regrets purchasing this helmet or com system. I own a set of each. Dec 9, 2014

baris o: Yes the wiring is removable. I removed the wiring and installed my Sena, but you have to mount it all the way to the back so that it doesn't interfere when you flip the helmet up. Dec 5, 2014

A shopper asked: Have the SMH10 with universal microphone kit and was wondering about which helmet would be better. I am considering this helmet, the HJC RPHA MAX or the Lazer Monaco carbon. Any help or advice that you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Which helmet
does the SMH10 fit better?
May 1, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Rusty A: I have the SMH10 in a LaZar Monaco. It *does* take a bit of tweaking/fuss to get it mounted in the perfect position (where it fits, but won't interfere with the flip-up). Perhaps 30 minutes instead of the usual 10-15.

That being said, it's well worth it. The Monaco can be slightly noisier than other helmets at freeway speeds, but it is far and away the best helmet I've ever owned - and I've owned a LOT of high end helmets... RF700-1000, Neotec, Schuberth, etc. It may be lighter than the 1pc helmets I've owned and the auto-darkening shield is worth it's weight in gold - no need to carry hard-to-pack space-wasting extra shields, no time wasted changing shields 2-3 times a day, etc.
Get the Monaco. As long as it fits your head, you won't be sorry.
Good luck!

Thomas L: I have the cardo G9 which fits well...i would recommend the newer cardo g9 which has better mounting options and also allows you to use your own ear buds which GREATLY improves sound quality. .
But I would recommend the lazer above all...extremely light and guiet..

A shopper asked: I currently have the Lazar Monaco and like most everything about it other than...... when I'm in the tucked position the top of the helmet above the visor is starting to get into my line of sight. Is there a modular or other helmet with a "higher" line of sight? Mar 30, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael C: The Monaco is the lightest I have tried but if you are tucked up it's more likely that you are not at touring pace. I suggest that no modular that I have tried are really built for tucked in but more an upright position. Suggest a full face for those rides.
One last thing, I have heard but not experienced except for in the shop that the opening in the bell helmets are bigger but the revolver is much heavier.
Hope thus helps

Stephanie B: Are you wearing it correctly? I found that to be the case for me, until my husband pointed out that I was wearing it tilted too low in front. The nose piece should be inline with your nose. If it isn't, that may be your problem. It was for me. Now I have no line of sight issues. Otherwise it may be too large in the head if it sits too low.

Paul T: I think what you need to do is try on another helmet and sit on the bike in a tuck position and see for yourself.. when Im riding with winter gear my jacket collar pushes up the back of the helmet and makes the front of the helmet come down to my eyebrow.. I also have a HJC and its the same... I hope this helps!!! Mar 31, 2014

A shopper asked: I ride a 2014 Harley Ultra Limited which has it's own proprietary communication system. I know this helmet has pre installed speakers and wiring but I would to be able to use my Harley system. Will my speakers and mike fit? Dec 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Sherard M: If your Harley uses Bluetooth it should work. I use mine on a BMW. The Bluetooth kit for the Monaco is sold separately however the wiring comes preinstalled. You could rewire the helmet for another communicator, however the lazer kit is fully integrated and has no parts hanging off. Dec 5, 2014

David K: I am not a Harley rider, not really sure what system they use. I ride a beemer and a goldwing using an autocom system and it fits into the ear pockets and mike works perfect. I took out the factory wiring and installed the autocom no problem. Good luck Dec 4, 2014

A shopper asked: I'm interested in the Lazer Monaco all carbon - maybe the window. On the Lazer website they indicate reflective zones with reflective glass beads. Does the all carbon window have these? They also show an all white version of the all carbon. I like the idea of the all carbon but I'd like high visibility. What do you recommend?

Feargus O: I have the Window Pure Carbon. It has a red reflector on the back of the helmet to help with visibility. I also like the white for the same reason. It is a very light helmet. I do not have the neck/back pain that I had with my previous Nolan helmets. I have ridden in very hard rains and it did not leak, again unlike my Nolan helmets. It flows a lot of air which is much appreciated in humid Florida where I live. May 30, 2014

john O: The only all white version I know does not appear to be carbon. The all carbon helmet pictured, with the black stripe down the middle is very noticeable, and stylish, too, especially with the photo-chromatic shield. That shield works great, by the way.

Please note that the helmet runs very small. I normally wear a large, but the extra large Monaco barely fits me.

John D asked: I'm wondering if this helmet can be used for snowmobiling? Will the pinlock system work in snow conditions? Also, I've had some ski doo helmets and they are made by Lazer, so I'm guessing sizing is close to the same? Thanks. Oct 30, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Barry H: I see no reason it wouldn't work. Size matters so I would want it large enough, my only beef is mine still is tight on the Jaw even after ordering smaller cheek pads (larger helmet size). Lazer could do a better job on how to order the proper size helmet. I have to say I love it now it fits better. Nov 1, 2014
Reply to Barry Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
David K: Sizing is close to the same but ventilation is not quite as good.
I have had both helmets, currently windows carbon and Revolution helmet
that was the motorcycle version of the snowmobile helmet. The Revolution helmet was far better at ventilation and thereby reducing fogging.

Michael C: I would suggest not, without knowing the details of the Harley system, but the inbuilt wiring has non standard plugs. The speakers from the Sena system fit in the pockets provided for the inbuilt system so suggest that part will be fine for the Harley speakers if they are like the Sena speakers. But the mike set up will likely not be able to use the standard wiring without modifications.
