Who did you order it from? I didn't see Canada or the U.S. on their dealer list.

Not available in North America. Lazer is the oldest manufacturer of motorcycle helmets in the world. I ordered out of France. I haven't got mine yet so I won't recommend them yet.

Looks nice! How much is it? You got carbon fiber, right?

Yea I ordered the carbon with the carbon finish. Costing me $600. CDN. $460. USD at the moment. I may have to pay some fees at the border. Still way less expensive than a Shuberth C3Pro that weighs in @ 500 grams more! That's a lot. I ordered one of those and sent it back. Way to heavy. You can get the fiberglass version of the Lazer for a lot less, and it's the same helmet, and only weighs 1500 grams. The carbon weighs in at 1350. I've been wearing a carbon fiber full face that is very light. Makes a world of difference you can feel immediately, and even more at the end of a day of riding. But I really miss the flip up feature for many reasons. Once you ride with a really light helmet, you can't go back.

What head shape are they aiming toward? I didn't see it listed.

LAZER:
Here is what we have :
Intermediate oval to lightly slender fit. Not a long oval, neutral to intermediate. Intermediate oval fit.

Also on Webbikeworld :

« I'd classify the Monaco as having a very neutral fit, neither too narrow nor too round »
I am taking a chance ordering this helmet, as I have no way to try one on. I fit an XL in the Shuberth C3. In a Shoei Quest I fit an XL. But that means nothing, the folks I talked to in a number of different dealers didn't seem to know that the Qwest has a different shape than other Shoei's. If the Monaco doesn't fit I have to hope I can sell it locally. The lastest version...the Evo, has a new shape with more space in front of the chin. That sounds good. In a HJC CL max I wear a XXXL. In my Kaos carbon fiber I wear a XL. In the new version of the Kaos, now called a Riot, I wear a XXL. I tried a Zeus on a while back....I was a medium. :roll:

BTW I have a new HJC CL max brand new in a box for sale I'd call it XL. Good lid, just want lighter.

Hey ZM - even your head is worth that much. :P
I've spent most of my money on women, motorcycles, and beer.
The rest of it I just wasted.
