I tend to get pressure points from many helmets but this is not a problem with the LAS Victory helmet. In part this is due to the comprehensive padding, which stretches well towards the back of the helmet. But it’s principally due to the really comfortable fit and the helmet being well shaped for my head.
LAS has been making helmets, and helmets alone, near Bergamo in Italy since 1974 and the LAS Victory helmet is second only to the Victory Supreme in its helmet line-up. It’s got 25 vents and uses Cateye’s Evo 2 adjustment system. There is a large dial adjuster at the back of the helmet to make it easy to get the fit right. The finish is first rate with a well finished polystyrene core and quality look to the facing which includes a raised silver LAS logo.

The straps are wide and comfortable. They attach with a magnetic buckle which is easy to get done up and undone but keeps the helmet securely in place once fixed. There’s a padded chin protector too.
The standard internal padding is in once piece and includes a bug net, which I have found useful on summer rides. The LAS Victory helmet also comes with a spare pad minus the net, a spare chin protector and a helmet bag.
Even with the bug net in place I’ve found the LAS Victory helmet helmet to be comfortable on hot days. Although the extent of the padding means that there’s a bit less airflow than in some helmets, it also mops up sweat so it doesn’t drip down into your eyes. It does tend to feel a bit damp when you remove the helmet at the end of a ride though.
All-in-all the LAS Victory helmet is an impressive piece of kit: comfortable, well finished and competitively light at 272g. It’s available in seven different colour schemes too.
