With the capabilities of modern trail bikes increasing every year, it makes sense to up the level of protection for the rider. This new helmet from Lazer allows the rider to choose just how much coverage is wanted or needed.
This isn’t an entirely new concept (see Bell’s excellent Super 2R), but the Revolution adds a few more features.
As shown in the picture above, the ear pads are removable, in addition to an optional bolt-on chinbar. The top of the helmet has what Lazer calls SMS: “The SMS (Safety Mounting System) for cameras and other accessories has been fully crash tested to assure that Revolution still passes all safety certifications when these items are attached and in use.” Lazer claims this is the only helmets to pass all the safety tests with accessories mounted.
The rest of the features are as expected: a visor that pushes up enough to park goggles below, a dial-adjust retention system and lots of vents. Lazer expects this helmet to pass ASTM-DH certification, which is not common for helmets with removable chinbars. Price is not announced yet, helmets should go on sale in early 2016.
