How do I determine which size of helmet I need?
To ensure a maximum protection, the proper helmet size should be chosen for each user. To choose your size, measure the circumference of your head approximately 2 cm above the eyebrows, and select the size of helmet that corresponds to your measurement (in cm). When the helmet is on your head make sure there are no large empty spaces or pressure points.
How do I correctly wear a helmet?
Put the helmet on your head with the front and back at the same level, so the helmet is parallel to the ground. Adjust the fit system of the helmet so it is securely and snug on your head, but still comfortable.The helmet should be properly adjusted on the head, meaning the straps should not cover your ears, the buckle should not be covering the chin and the buckle and straps should be firmly, but comfortably adjusted. The same applies to the adjustment around the perimeter of the head. The helmet should always be fixed on the head by securing the chin strap attached under the chin.
How do I take care of my helmet?
In order to get the most from your helmet, follow these simple steps:
Keep it in a helmet bag. Some come with a bag, or you can use a water-resistant drawstring bag to ensure nothing leaks onto/into your helmet when traveling (chain lubricants can damage the EPS structure).
Pack it on top. When packing your car or a bag for travel, always store your helmet on top. It’s made to structurally protect your head, not to bear unusually high loads that can occur during transit (always check it for damage after a long trip).
Keep it clean. If scrubbing it from time to time seems like a chore or hard to remember, take it into the shower with you from time to time and rinse it there.
Check the padding. Padding inside a helmet can become dislodged. Take a photo of the inside of your helmet when it’s new and make sure the pads are present and properly positioned every so often.
If you don’t shower with your helmet, remove the padding and wash it separately, but be sure to return all the bits in their correct places.
When should I replace my helmet?
Even with no hard bangs, you should replace your helmet every three years (on average) to ensure that the helmet you’re currently wearing is best able to do what it was designed to do – protect your brain from injury.
Your helmet may look quite fine after three years. You may never have had a tumble where your helmet took an impact. But helmets are made of materials that are intentionally light to ensure comfort while protecting your head. Unlike a pair of hardy Shimano SPD pedals, these materials in modern helmets don’t last forever.
Significant changes in temperature as well as lengthy exposure to UV light can degrade the EPS (expanded polystyrene), which is the core/shell of the modern cycling helmet. Some sunblocks contain substances that can erode EPS and sweat can also gradually wear into your helmet’s EPS and affect its structure.
By replacing your helmet every three years, you are giving yourself both peace of mind as well as optimal protection.
There is a winter liner for my helmet, what is this and how do I install this?
Some Lazer helmets are designed to be used all-year round and have an accessory called winter liner. With some quick adjustments you can use your helmet no matter what the conditions are.
How to install:
Remove the original padding from the helmet by pulling it away from the helmet, until there are only velcro strips left in the helmet.
Put the helmet straps on the outside of the helmet so there is nothing inside the helmet.
Align the winter liner with at the front of the helmet and gently push the liner down until it sticks to the velcro.
Pull your helmet straps through the loops that are on the outside of the ear flaps of the winter liner.
The winter liner should now be installed and ready for use.
