Lazer Strada KinetiCore helmet review: a safe and affordable all-rounder

We've been putting the lightweight Lazer Strada KinetiCore through its paces - an affordable helmet option with Lazer's proprietary safety tech built in. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Let’s start by looking at the most pertinent feature and that’s the slightly unusual spattering of EPS foam "crumple zones" inside the helmet. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Flip the lid over and it looks like someone has gone wild with a CNC cutter inside the helmet, but this patterning is very deliberate. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The raised sections have been designed to deform in the case of an accident, absorbing impact and dissipating energy so it isn’t transferred to the brain. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Strada is slim and sleek and looks great on those with small heads (like us). It’s also available in four sizes, so users can start with a fantastic fit. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Further adjustment is via a new ScrollSys roller at the rear of the helmet. It proves comfortable and great for making micro-adjustments on the move. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Overall, the Lazer Strada KinetiCore offers a fantastic blend of lightweight comfort, advanced safety technologies and a very tempting price tag. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
