Lazer Armor Helmet – Safety, Style, Comfort!
The one-piece in mold construction really makes the Armor helmet stand out among the competition. Coming in at an incredibly light 275 grams, Armor is almost half the weight of a traditional “bucket” style helmet. Three size options, multiple thickness padding, exceptional venting on the front, top and back and air channels molded into the foam to assure the interior stays cool and comfortable.
Look for some additional reviews on Armor to be posted on our blog soon!
Two great contests closing soon!
Lazer Professionals Start the Season off with Success!
It’s been a great start to the 2012 racing season thanks to our Professional Helmeteers!
After a dominating performance at the Santos Tour Down Under Lotto Beisol ace sprinter Andre Greipel went on to take two stages in the February Tour of Oman stage race. His team mate Gianni Meersman also found success in Portugal winning the opening stage of the Volta ao Algarve that same week.
The Farnese Vini Selle Italia team could not have asked for a better Tour de Langkawi with Andrea “Flash” Guardini taking six of the ten stages in sprint finishes.
Luna Pro Rider and Current Mountain Bike World Champion Catharine Pendrel started the 2012 season off with a win earlier this month at the Mellow Johnny’s Classic in Texas!
Crank Bros Race Club rider Judy Freeman had a great result at Mellow Johnny’s as well, finishing in second place.
Optum Pro Cycling presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies was dominant last weekend at the Madera Stage Race in the United States, winning three of the four stages and placing Mike Creed on the top step of the overall podium. Creed also claimed victory in one of the race’s two time trial stages. The performance came after three days of reconnaissance centered around some of the upcoming Amgen Tour of California which the Optum team has been invited to take part in again for 2012.
Lazer is proud to partner with these great professional teams in 2012!
