Picking Commuter Helmets

The Best Lids for Work or Play in the City 

Commuting by Bike

Neither wind, nor rain, nor heat should keep you from the magic of two-wheeled urban riding. Whether commuting to work, running errands, or simply joyriding through town, experiencing your local community by bike is a fun and efficient way to get around. But, like any bike ride, safety is an important consideration when commuting. Pick quieter roads or routes, wear bright and reflective clothing, and of course, select a helmet that offers top-tier protection along with other features to make your commute more enjoyable. 

 

Lazer Urbanize Helmet

Good commuter helmets are more than mere plastic buckets with a visor strapped on for looks. They are purpose-built to perform and protect comfortably as you enjoy the freedom of traveling car-free. While any helmet could be considered a commuter helmet – as long as it fits well and is in good condition – Lazer’s Cameleon MIPS and Urbanize MIPS helmets are our top picks for commuters. Deciding which helmet is right for you depends on where you live, how far you ride, and what kind of terrain you'll encounter along the way. Consider the following when choosing the right commuter helmet for you.

Lazer Cameleon MIPS

Impact Protection

At its very core, a helmet protects. Whether racing to punch the clock or cruising to the farmer’s market, every Lazer helmet must meet CPSC guidelines to reduce the direct forces of an impact. Additionally, many Lazer Helmets come equipped with MIPS (more on that here), which helps protect against the rotational forces that often cause concussions. Both the Cameleon and Urbanize helmets come standard with MIPS, prioritizing protection for any rider.

Urbanize Helmet

Protection from the Elements

Are you a fair-weather rider who prefers casual rides and a warm breeze on the way to the office? Or are you a die-hard commuter who will pedal to pick up groceries on a snow day? The answer to that question may determine which commuter lid is right for you.

The Cameleon MIPS has 13 generous vents making it perfect for commuting or cruising in warmer weather. It offers a more traditional helmet style and can easily pull double duty for your longer, weekend recreational rides.

The Urbanize is built for the intrepid commuter who is ready to take on any conditions thrown their way. It offers more coverage, protecting you from foul weather, and even comes with a winter padding kit for those deep winter commutes. With six strategically placed and shaped vents, the Urbanize MIPS still allows for breathability while protecting you from the elements. 

Urbanize Protection

Additionally, the Urbanize also features a removable magnetic face shield that snaps into place, providing even more protection for your face from rain, wind, snow, and anything the city streets can throw at you. On lovely days, the shield easily flips out of the way so you can enjoy the warm breeze or crisp morning air.

Lazer Ubranize MIPs

Fit and Comfort

How a helmet fits is a crucial component for its overall protection and comfort. The first step to finding the right fit is determining what size helmet you need. Use a tape measure to determine your head’s circumference and check Lazer’s sizing guide to select the right size. Then, Lazer’s unique adjustable head basket technology and built-in retention systems work together to secure the helmet in place and ensure proper fit.

The Urabnize MIPS helmet features Lazer’s Advanced Turnfit retention system that includes a micro-adjustment dial on the back. This allows for quick and easy adjustments, even while riding, so you can dial it in for the perfect balance of comfort and security.

Lazer Cameleon MIPS

The Cameleon helmet uses Laze’s Advance Rolysys retention system that features a unique dial on the top and provides progressive adjustment around the head's entire circumference. This helps reduce hot spots, so long gone are the days of showing up to work with an indent or red mark on your forehead.

 

Details for Safety

Urban riding presents its own unique sets of challenges and demands. Increased traffic means increased visibility is essential. That's why both the Cameleon and Urbanize seamlessly integrate with rechargeable LED lights — no more forgetting flashers at home when they can be one with the helmet.
