The Cyclist's Closet: Lazer Sweet Helmet

Lazer Sweet Helmet

If you can get past the dopey name, the Sweet packs a ton of great features in a relatively inexpensive package. Lazer’s user-friendly Roll-Sys fit adjustment, which cinches in fit with a speed dial on top of the helmet, is one of the best out there, and the company made it even better by integrating a blinker ldirectly into the dial so you’ll never be caught out without a light. Ventilation is fine, if not breezy, but what I really liked is the switch on top that opens and closes the 12 top and rear vents to keep out rain. Blaze orange and yellow color options add visibility, though for the more (ahem!) vain among us, there’s also black and white. $100
