Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Lazer Volante boasts excellent visibility with a snap-on-and-off, wrap-around visor. The fit is equally as good with an adjustable retention system at the rear and easily adjustable chin strap. The two small vents at the front are covered up when the visor is in place so it can get hot.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Great visibility with wraparound visor

  • +

    Snug fit with good padding and well placed straps

  • +

    Airflow managed around side as well as over the top

Reasons to avoid

Lazer launched their Volante TT helmet last July with the bold claim of it being the fastest ever. When two month's later Primož Roglič was dumped out of Tour de France's yellow jersey with the Volante sitting skew-whiff on his head, it didn't seem like a claim that held much water.

Fast forward to this summer and Roglič and his Jumbo Visma team mate Tom Dumoulin just rode to Olympic gold and silver wearing the Volante. So it now doesn't seem like such an outrageous claim after all.
