Team Globalbike is pleased to announce a new partnership with Lazer Sport to supply the team with helmets and eyewear for 2012. Lazer is a Belgian company started in 1919. They offer a full line of helmets, from high performance racing to stylish urban commuter versions. Lazer helmets have been worn by some the greats in the sport. Paolo Bettini won the Olympic games in Athens and two world championships wearing a Lazer helmet. Tom Boonen has been a lifelong Lazer wearer and has won numerous titles under the Lazer lid.

The team will be rocking the Lazer Genesis on the road. The retention system of these helmets is one of the most comfortable we have ever tested. The helmet is very versatile with 3 different padding options including the normal summer pads for maximum air flow, a bug net pad system, and a more enclosed winter pad set to hold in heat. We will also get the optional aero-shell cover which is a thin plastic cover that can be used in winter or rain rides when you want to close off the vents.
In Time Trial events, the team will don the Lazer Tardiz. We wonder if the origin of the name Tardiz came from the British hit science fiction show – Dr Who. The doctor traveled through time in a space ship / time machine called the Tardis that looked like a small police box on the outside, but was much bigger inside. Can we alter time with these helmets? I think we can.
New to the Lazer line up for 2012 are a complete line of optics. Globalbike will be sporting 5 different models on the road and around town. We’ll have photos and reviews when they come in.
