I have been using the Lazer Kiss MTB Helmet for about six weeks now, it cost me £44.99 from a local cycling store, you can get it slightly cheaper online but with safety gear like this I always want to inspect it closely and try it on before buying as I cannot be doing with the hassle of returning it. There are obviously a lot more expensive riding hats on the market aimed at the competitive racer who is more worried about those extra few grams that they want to shed however I'm a casual bike rider who wants protection first and foremost and also some ventilation to keep my head cool.
The first thing I have to say about this adjustable helmet is that it is very easy to adjust to a comfortable fit and also it is incredibly comfortable to wear, it sits high on the head and does not slip around even when I'm putting a lot of effort in when climbing hills or off roading when it can get bumpy. I also like the fact that the design is spefifically good for women with long hair as I can tie mine back in a ponytail and the hat is designed to accomodate this. It weights 290 gramms in total so it is not at all heavy.
There are sixten vents in all and these ensure a nice flow of air across my head and also down around my neck so it helps me to keep cool even when exerting myself a lot. The front vizor provides some protection from the suns rays and the side panelling is slightly grooved to allow the asy wearing and removal of sunglasses while riding. The helmet has a nice solid feel to it and while fortunately I have never had to experience a fall where the protection has had to come into play I'm confident that it will provide me with the layer of protection my head needs if I do have an accident.
I have a balck and gold coloured one and there are a couple of other designs available, mine looks quite racy in my opinion and overall for the price I'm very happy with my purchase as it is very comfortable, easy to adjust and sits in place giving me a good range of vision.
