Lazer Monaco carbon-fibre flip-up helmet

Lazer Monaco flip-up, £324.95 Miles covered/time: 800/two months What’s good: Made from carbon-fibre, this helmet feels incredibly light. Lazer claim 1350g, which makes it substantially lighter than the 1500g Shoei Qwest I normally favour. The flip-up mechanism is easy to use; just press a button on the underside of the chinbar and up she goes – which saves taking my helmet off...

What about wind noise? The biggest potential issue with flip-fronts and you've not even mentioned it despite this one being towards the top end of the price range. Have you actually ridden outside a 30 zone in this helmet? As for "riding past the local lovelies", what a load of crap!

What a load of tosh! Weren't there any grown-ups free to do this review?

Wind noise?

Misting?

Visor rain leaks?

...and nobody wears a flip-front to impress anyone, but they're great for commuters regular fuel stops and for glasses wearers - did you try fitting some shades or glasses on with this helmet?

The other thing that isn't mentioned is that although the photochromatic is good, and does save switching visors. It doesn't mention that on the visor it states "Daytime use only". Now as far as i am aware it would therefore be illegal to use after dark in the U.K
As i own one of these helmet (and i am very happy with it), i did contact the company who stated it for use day and night. However that applies to countries with no so strict helmet/visor laws. So as it has "day time use only", then it cannot be used after dark in the UK. Something that is apparently being looked into. Were they are up to on that subject i don't know!
