The designers across the pond at Lazer have shown they aren't afraid to resist trends and trust to their own innovative designs when creating high-end road racing helmets. If you're looking for a race-pedigreed lid to protect your cognitive functions as you fly around tight corners and bump elbows in your next criterium, but don't want to be confused for a time trialist or triathlete in an aero helmet, invest in Lazer's Z1 MIPS Helmet. The classic design will protect your head while giving you ventilation at a wide range of speeds from its 31 well-placed vents.Not satisfied with the protection offered by traditional helmet shapes, Lazer updated the Z1 to include more coverage at the temples in the event of a crash, and it also added side-angle impact protection in the form of MIPS. MIPS, or Multi Directional Impact Protection System, refers to the Swedish technology added to the helmet in the form of a barely-perceptible inner basket. It's designed to move slightly upon impact to absorb the brain-damaging rotational energy generated by side impacts. Before you ride, use Lazer's Advanced Rollsys retention system to secure the helmet in place so it won't slide around or pinch, or to make easy on-the-go fit adjustments as you ride, and when the weather turns cooler, attach Lazer's aeroshell to the outside of the helmet to help conserve heat when you don't want the vents doing their job quite so well.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
