Lazer helmets have long been regarded as some the best in the world. They’re light, comfy, stylish, safe, affordable, and most importantly, they’re now available at Bicycle Therapy. Lazer makes a lot of really great helmets, but we’ve picked two models in a few great colors to have at the shop.
The Lazer Oxygen (aka O2) is a high performance, high value roadie that features an outstanding fit, low profile shape, great ventilation, and low weight, all for $110.
The Armor is a perfect choice for the everyday rider that wants a safe, super light, well ventilated helmet with subtle styling that looks more at home on the streets than in the Tour de France.
Follow the links for more info on these great helmets and then swing by the shop to try on something new.

BikeRadar.com just confirmed what we’ve known for a while now: The Specialized Propero II delivers level of performance and style that you’d expect from top-shelf lids like its big brother and Pro Tour favorite the Specialized S-WORKS Prevail, but at less than half the price. The Propero II, in addition to passing or exceeding all safety standards, features Specialized’s 4D cooling, ultra-adjustable retention and sizing systems, and styling so similar to the S-WORKS Prevail that you’ll fool your riding buddies for a long time. The best feature of the Propero II is that fact that even though it’s an incredible value for money, you’ll never be compromising performance and you’ll never regret your choice.
We’ve got the Specialized Propero II in stock in all sizes and colors, so stop by soon to get yours.

One of the most common questions we get at the shop is, “How much better are the expensive helmets than the $30 helmets?” It’s a great question. All the helmets pass the same safety standards, they all look kinda the same, so why would someone spend up to seven times more? Once we explain that the more expensive helmets are lighter, better ventilated, and better fitting, we almost certainly get the next question, “Ok, so which is the best one?” It’s hard not to say that the Specialized Propero is the best bang for buck.

There is a definite trend in the bicycle helmet world towards more subtle, casual styling for urban cyclists. Case in point: the Bern helmets that have become so popular. Yes, we carry Bern, but not everyone wants the same thing; it’s why they make chocolate and vanilla, no? That’s why we carry the new Specialized Street Smart helmet, too. Light, high-tech, well ventilated, and casual all for just $60.
