Love my new helmet- No more heavy head! I have only worn this helmet twice, so it isn't even broken in yet, but already I love it. It is very light and doesn't make my neck tired as my old full face did. It is a sleek looking helmet . I added some girly cling decals to mine and it looks awesome! The fit is quite snug. I measured a small, so I ordered a small to start. The head fits me perfectly, however the cheek/jaw area is super tight. Not so much that I get a headache though, so I am waiting to see if the pads break in. If not, I will order some M cheek pads. Nice airflow. The transitions visor is great. Better than the 2 year old one I have on my old helmet. The latch is easy to open and close. Because it fits so snugly with my ears in the perfect place, the noise level is lower than what I was used to. I do wear earplugs and have the Sena Bluetooth in my helmet, and had to turn down the volume from what I usually would have it at in my old full face helmet. The only thing it doesn't have that I would like is the easy-off visor, just because it's easier for cleaning. But with the transitions visor, you never have to switch so it's not a big issue.

I think it's a great helmet, exactly what I was wanting I had to get a size larger than normal, but if you are looking for a very light helmet with great looks, this one you will want. Revzilla was great to deal with also in returning the x large and sending the xx large. March 17, 2014
Expensive but good value. The helmet shell curves inward and is too narrow at the opening where the chin straps attach, making it verry difficult to get the helmet on or off without feeling like my ears are going to be ripped off. Originally ordered a Large (my normal size for 23.5" head) but had to return it for XL. the helmet loks great and the quality justifies the price. I like the Transitions photochromic face shield but it doesn't get dark enough in bright sunlite (I prefer my Shark Evoline helmet with seperate clear and tinted shields). The helmet is light and comfortable once it's on and the quick release chin strap is a nice feature. Overall, a great helmet. Revzilla Customer Service and return/exchange policy are the best!

One of the lightest weight modular helmets Love this helmet...but make sure you get extra screws that attach the visor to the helmet. Love the photochromatic type visor and the Pin Lock system really works! December 16, 2013
Great helmet overall but a couple issues I love the weight and style of this helmet....It's extremely lightweight and stylish...The modular aspect is great and when it locks down it snaps into place VERY securely. Love the self darkening shield but it fogs up VERY easily. I have not installed the anti-fog pinlock yet so hopefully that takes care of this issue. The only other issue to be aware of is that I normally wear a medium helmet but had to go to an ex-large to get a comfortable fit. The fit is not so much the padding inside but the fact that my chin hits the front of the chinbar when in place. The Large hit it very hard and I had to go to the Ex-Large. My chin still touches the front on the chinbar but it I can live with it as the rest of the helmet is just great!!! I'm hoping that once the back of the padding inside the helmet wears in a little that the chin issue may be less pronounced. Hopefully as I love this helmet for weight, airflow, aerodynamics (noise), and did I mention the weight??? December 16, 2013
Not nearly what I'd expected based on other reviews! I've worn this now for a couple thousand miles and find some things to be very positive and others to be intensely negative. Good stuff includes the weight, shield, looks availability of intercom that will fit in it. Bad stuff starts with the fact that it is very hard to get on and off (it does get a little easier with time, don't know if we just figure out how to do it or stuff softens up). This was rated high for air flow and is one of my main concerns, but it doesn't seem to flow ANY air from lower vent and is VERY hot even with the chin curtain removed. It fits very close to my face below the visor and just doesn't allow any air movement at all. So with those caveats I would recommend this, not otherwise. December 2, 2013
Helmet runs small I usually order a size small. after measuring my head I was lead to choose a medium. When I tried to put it on it was like a vise grip on head. Though I did get the helmet on. I decided to return it for a size large. Two sizes up is a big difference. Now that I know the right size I would recommend the purchase just to eliminate neck pain when touring. The helmet carbon look and graphics are mega cool. I also purchased the Lazer link kit because I can talk with different manufacturer's blue tooth communication devices. October 27, 2013
Excellent helmet but tight fight, esp. around the ears This is a great helmet. Light, quiet and an amazing value for a carbon helmet. I only have two small gripes. First, although comfortable when on, it's very tight to put on. I wear a medium on my last helmet (Shoei Multitec) but went up to L on this and I even tried an XL because it was so hard to put on. If you wear ear buds (headphones) as I do, you will find it challenging getting on and off. My smaller nit pick is about the transition lens shield, not dark enough for total sun and too dark to wear under sunglasses. Still, this is a great helmet and the weight really makes a different on long rides. October 22, 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.

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

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.

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:
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

Frank R: I measured at a small and it fit in the crown correctly but the cheek pads were very tight. I replaced the cheek pads with the medium size pads and all is well. Dec 27, 2013

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

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

RevZilla: Yes, the LaZer Monaco Window Pure Carbon Helmet has speaker cutouts to accommodate bluetooth communication speakers.
