The Lazer Genesis helmet was selected for an Editor's Choice award in 2020. This year's list contains 78 items which scored a 9 or 10/10 with our tech team - this gear is the best of the best, and has received the Cycling Weekly stamp of approval. 

The 2019 World championships heralded the launch of the Lazer Genesis as the Belgian helmet expert's all-new range topper.
