For 2012, Lazer has revamped its off-road helmet called Nirvana. Although the previous model already has a close-fitting lid, it was further enhanced with the new model’s height-adjustable rear retention. Even a shaved head is free from any hassle as all of the plastic pieces of the helmet are nicely supple.

A single top-mounted dial was used by the Nirvana, instead of a stepped buckle or ratcheting dial. Thus, a stainless steel cable is easily tightened or loosened, fastened around the rider’s forehead, and wrapped around the head’s circumference.

Maximum comfort is guaranteed by the 2012 Lazer Nirvana Off-Road Helmet although it is designed to be very secure and it has installed lights. This is achieved through the outstanding Rollsys retention system, which evenly distributes pressure. Its smaller size weighs in at 283g.
