The Lazer Monaco modular helmet has many great features It is light weight, modular in design, comes with a pin-lock face shield, has a reflective strip located on the back side, and the ventilation is awesome. May 18, 2015
Very Pleased Overall Ok, I've spent some time with my Lazer and here are some thoughts: 1. The weight is excellent. Lightest modular I've found. 2. The "transitions-style" shield is outstanding! It doesn't get quite as dark as I'd like, but not having to worry about having a clear shield with you just in case is really great. 3. Pinlock has been seamless. Not real sure if its working, but I can say it hasn't not worked, if you know what I mean. 4. Different/unrecognized brand - get lots of questions from other riders that are and aren't familiar with the brand. Good conversation starter, which I like. 5. The quick release chin strap is excellent, but it makes a traditional d-ring helmet lock useless. I had to mod something similar to the "T" bars you see for sale. Regular "T" bars are too wide to use. 6. Noise level is just ok. About average I'd say. I ride without the included ear pads as I have a sena installed. With the ear pads might be better/quieter but doesn't fit me with them and sena speakers. 7. Size - it definitely runs one size small. I normally wear a L in Shoei and the XL fits me pretty well 8. Price - At the discounted $3XX I bought it for, its a steal. At the msrp, its a fair deal. 9. Customer support - Revzilla is great, but they are the only vendor for this brand in the US. So, if you need something it has to come from them. I have been e-mailing with a rep from Lazer Corporate and he has been very helpful as well. 10. Putting it on and taking it off is still a challenge, but it is getting better. The carbon fiber shell is so stiff that it's hard to stretch the helmet as you put it on, etc. But you would think from a safety perspective that would be a good thing. 11. Airflow is great. I read somewhere that one guy could feel his hair move with the top vents open and that goes for me as well, although the chin vent doesn't do much. Based on my pre-purchase research and experiences, I'd give it a 9 out of 10 and I fall into the "Very Satisfied" category. May 18, 2015
Excellent Quality, superb fit, Super light, Quality construction, plush interior, It did take a day to break in, but the most comfortable I have seen. It has a super field of view and the auto darken is very quick, still have room for sunglasses but you will find you can leave them in your bag. This is pre wired for a blue tooth system, and that will connect to your phone, mapping system, or the wife (if you have gotten her a nice helmet too.) If you have asked yourself if getting the carbon fiber is worth the extra money, just to loose a few ounces, It is night and day my friend. look to Revzilla for the videos to explain the features, how to open the vents, the ease installing the blue tooth, and enjoy the lightest head gear around. My head is right on the line between a medium and large on the size chart, went with the large and had a perfect fit. Riding for 34 years, Goldwing May 12, 2015
The only helmet you'll ever need. After ordering a Skorpion, and hating it, I realized that Lazer is the way to go. My first helmet is this exact model, but fiber glass. Fits just the same. Best part for me is that I have a bluetooth system for my girlfriend and I, and this helmet has velcro pads on the inside for you to put the ear pieces. And the ability to take out the ear pieces gives a slot for your ears to perfectly slip in comfortably. No more squished ears on new helmets!! The only downside, is that it SUCKS for air flow compared to others. The front has a slot, and the top has a small opening, all with an exhaust port in the back. But, if you just pop your shield up a knotch, it's just the same. May 8, 2015
Transition lens The Transition lens is an incredible addition to the helmet, I can still fit a pair of sunglasses on under the helmet for when I take off the helmet. May 4, 2015
Great helmet. I couldn't be more pleased with my choice. I've always had a difficult time finding a comfortable helmet. So ordering a fairly expensive helmet online without trying it on took several weeks of meditation before I could pull the trigger on purchasing a LaZer Monaco. I'm so happy I did. Other full face and modular helmets I've tried on either squeezed my cheeks unbearably, or had me feeling like I was supporting a bowling ball on my shoulders. The LaZer does neither. It fits securely, but doesn't cause any discomfort. While I normally wear a small size helmet, I ended up ordering a medium based on reading the other feedback, and this was the right choice. As far as weight, it feels as light as my 3/4 Fulmer, which makes wearing it for extended periods of time no problem. Living in Florida, the vents are very nice and allow great airflow. It's also nice to be able to easily open or slightly crack the shield when sitting or traveling at low speeds. The Lumino shield does a great job replacing the need for sunglasses, and you don't even notice the change in shade as the light varies. Wearing my regular glasses with the helmet are no problem. The pinlock shield works great, and prevents any fogging even in rainy, humid conditions. The only small things I'm adjusting to are the buckle chinstrap. I really like the ease of use of this feature. However, there are times when it feels a bit restrictive around my throat. I'd still choose it over the traditional D rings. Also, getting the helmet on and off is a bit tight. I definitely have to have the chinbar up and remove my glasses to accomplish it, but it is a bit of a squeeze nonetheless. Overwhelmingly, I'm very pleased with the helmet, and the many positive features that make it a great choice. April 24, 2015
Great Looking Lid I've used this helmet for about 3 months now and have come to really like it. Pros: High grade construction, great looks that stand out; Transitions face shield works like a charm and much quieter than my old lid. Cons: Narrow fit (a "Pro" for anyone described as a "ferret face"!) but with practice and a size XXL, I've gotten used to it, and definitely lightweight for a full faced helmet. Overall, I'm very pleased and recommend this product. April 21, 2015
Nice Helmet This is a good all around helmet. I installed a Sena blue unit with the clamping mount with no issues. The pin lock shield with the transition lens works well. I normally fit well into a XL helmet but find this one fits a little snug. The only other miner issue I found was my mic boom gets caught up with the flexible wind screen at the bottom of the chin bar when locking the chin bar in place. Other than that I'm quite happy with this helmet and was $350 well spent. April 20, 2015

Georgia G: the reviews I read and the lightweight Jan 23, 2015
Gino C: I was in the market for either a full face or modular helmet, and this one just stood out based on reviews, features, and looks. Awesome price, especially on sale, for a carbon helmet. I'd been meaning to get a carbon helmet down the line to match my ride, a Ducati Diavel Carbon, and the price of the Lazer Monaco was too tempting to pass on. Excellent reviews across the board and RevZilla's exemplary reputation sealed the deal. First time shopping here, and if all goes well, I'll be back! Jan 17, 2015
Derek C: Picked this helmet due to great reviews and carbon fiber safety benefits. This helmet is a great bang for your buck if you want a modular with great included features. Can't beat it! Jan 6, 2015
Dean K: great value for price Dec 31, 2014
John C: Looked like a good value. Unfortunately, it was too small. Even though my head circumference was within the spec range, the helmet was too narrow, and the chin bar was too close to my chin. Too bad they do not offer a 3XL. Dec 27, 2014
A. David B: The LaZer helmet had decent reviews and the price was right. Dec 12, 2014
James Troy H: Reviews online, good price, and desire to replace my Schuberth C3 with something of comparable performance and much lower price. Dec 9, 2014

Albert K I: The carbon fiber, modular, and most important the high reviews on the photochromic shield. Aug 9, 2014
Cedric B: Super lightweight, carbon fiber strength, photo chromatic shield, and retro black/white color for visibility and style. Aug 7, 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. I have other modular helmets that are heavy and loud. This seems like a good lightweight option for me. Aug 7, 2014
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
William M: I liked the video information about this helmet. The Hi-Viz was out of stock and I'm getting my bike in two days so I went with the brightest one I could find from LaZer (which actually matches the color on the bike). May 21, 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.

Gino C: I also live outside the U.S. and was puzzling over the same thing. I'm a 58 1/2 cm measurement and went with a Large. Was very tight initially but broke in nicely after several rides. It's still a bit snug, however, and a Medium would have definitely been too uncomfortably tight. Since we're close to the same head circumference, I'd recommend a Large for you. Mar 5, 2015
Reply to Gino Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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:
I also measured in between medium and Large. I chose the large and have not had a problem....actually it fit so well. Remember you can change out the pads inside, which I have not done...this helmet is awesome as is!

Michael H: Mine fits properly per the measurement guide. Word of advice...go up a size (or two) on the cheek pads. The original cheek pads pressed so hard on my cheeks that I couldn't wear the helmet without extreme discomfort. Dec 20, 2013

Robert C: My head measured 57 cm and I got a medium LaZer Monaco Pure Carbon Helmet. The helmet fit fine on my head but is very snug on my cheeks. I am keeping the medium and hope the cheek pads will eventually loosen up. Dec 19, 2013
Reply to Robert Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Steven M: Get the larger size. Trust me they run a bit small. They also have the changeable pads but I doubt that you will need them. I wear the large and it is snug to the point of not moving at all but not tight. Dec 18, 2013

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
Nov 7, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
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.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to Frank Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Frank M: You don't have to, but if you do open the face, it is easier to spread the sides to get it over your ears, cheekbones and/or jaw if they are wide like mine. Mar 9, 2014

Dave O: Yes, I do not think anyone could put it on otherwise. It's very tight but once its on the fit is very good.

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

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. Using sunglasses and the photochromatic shield was too dark, so I switched to a clear shield and sunglasses. 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.

Barry H: Hi,
I don't want to steer you wrong here but this is what I see. I love my LMW helmet and it has helped a huge amount with my neck issues but it is tight even after putting in smaller cheek pads (although the larger ones were braking in to be barely OK.) I have a lot of use on mine and yes it does get better but slowly.
If I am very careful I can put it on with my glasses on that didn't use to be true,so I would have to say slightly better. I will say I found it worthwhile to put up with it until it did. I will also note here that Revzilla is the best!

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: 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!

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..

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.

As for ears - I took the two foam pads for the ears out ( I have since replaced them with the bluetooth adapter), getting it on, really have to be careful as it still boxes my ears really tight until they get into the hole.

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).

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.
