Balancing protection and comfort with a variety of Lazer retention systems
Security and fit are two of the most important features rides can look for when buying a new helmet. If the helmet doesn't fit well or isn't secured down on the head properly, it cannot provide its full level of protection. Selecting the right size of helmet is the first step to ensuring a proper fit. Then, choose a retention system that keeps the helmet snugly and comfortably in place on your head, so you know it'll stay in place in the event of a crash.
Lazer offers a variety of retention system designs that wrap the head comfortably while providing different user features and adjustment options. Each system works seamlessly within the helmet to provide robust, reliable protection for all types of riders, from toddlers up to the most experienced cyclists. So, how do Lazer’s lineup of retention systems differ?
ScrollSys Retention System
Designed alongside Lazer’s KinetiCore rotational impact protection technology, the new ScrollSys system is the newest and most technically advanced retentions system and is found on both the Vento KintiCore and Strada KinetiCore helmets. ScrollSys delivers a comfortable fit and quick adjustments thanks to a large belt at the back of the helmet that’s easy to reach for on-the-go adjustments.
Advanced Rollsys System – ARS
Lazer’s Advanced Rollsys System uses a unique dial on the top of the helmet, providing a progressive adjustment around the entire circumference of the rider’s head. ARS enables you to easily adjust the fit of your helmet while riding and is not only ponytail-friendly, but it prevents hotspots or pressure points as well. ARS is found on some of Lazer's top-tier road helmets, including the G1 MIPS, Z1 MIPS, and Sphere MIPS.
Advanced TurnSys Retention System
The Lazer Advanced TurnSys system provides a tailored fit that's easy to adjust on the move with a simple turn of the dial. It reduces pressure points and hot spots while providing vertical adjustability around the circumference of the head. The Advanced TurnSys system is available on the Tonic KinetiCore and Jackal KinetiCore.
TurnSys Retention System
The Lazer TurnSys system delivers precise adjustability for a tailored fit that is quick and easy to adjust while riding. TurnSys is available with the Coyote KinetiCore, CityZen KinetiCore, Codax KinetiCore, and Tempo KinetiCore.
Advanced Turnfit System – ATS
Lazer’s Advanced Turnfit System places the retention dial at the back of the helmet to optimize aerodynamic drag on aero helmets - keeping the top of the helmet free of airflow disruptions – or allows for helmet-top features like a camera mount on mountain bike helmets. The Advanced Turnfit System design tightens evenly around the circumference of the rider's head rather than using a traditional system with a dial at the back that effectively pushes the head forward into the helmet and often leaves pressure marks on the forehead. Lazer's Advanced Turnfit System is available with the Wasp Air Tri, Impala MIPS, and Urbanize MIPS.
Turnfit Plus – TS+
Lazer’s Turnfit Plus retention system was completely redesigned in 2015 to offer the simplicity of a traditional retention dial at the back of the helmet while boosting comfort by comfortably tightening around the entire circumference of the head. It is featured on helmets such as the Tardiz 2, Coyote MIPS, Chiru MIPS, and J1.
The Lazer EZ Fit retention system is thoughtfully designed to make putting on a kid’s helmet as easy and painless as possible so you can spend more time on the fun part. The EZ Fit system will keep adjusting for a secure fit as your child continue to grow, providing a secure fit for improved protection and more comfort for your child. The EZ Fit system is found with the Nutz KinetiCore and Pnut KinetiCore.
When it comes to protecting you or your child’s head, wearing a helmet is critical. But not just any helmet will do. Finding a helmet that not only fits well but that offers a reliable and comfortable retention system will help you ride with confidence and keep your noggin protected in case you end up on the ground.
