With Anverz NTA and Revolution NTA LAZER Sport introduces two speed pedelec helmets during the upcoming Eurobike show in Friedrichshafen.
The LAZER Anverz NTA helmet is designed to fit perfectly with your speed pedelec or E-bike. It has the same style, flair and protection as a moped helmet but the weight of a high end bicycle helmet. It brings the best of both worlds together: well ventilated, comfortable, lightweight, sturdy with a lot of coverage, the ability to accessorize, and a brilliant screen visor.
The use of a visor on the LAZER Anverz NTA doesn’t come without a clear reason. For those who have ever ridden a speed pedelec at 45 km/h know how much wind flow, rain and dust constantly obstructs sight and comfort. The visor therefore offers great protection and guarantees a continuous view on the road and its traffic, even when wearing glasses. When needed, the visor can easily be opened or closed at the wish of the rider.
The LAZER Anverz NTA comes with a truckload of safety standards (CE-CPSC-AS-NTA) yet brings a weight of only 382 grams to the scale. It features 23 vents, offering ultimate comfort and ventilation during warmer days. In all other circumstances an easy to mount on lid (comes standard) transforms the helmets to a closed helmet, offering additional protection to all sorts of weather circumstances.
For those that prefer a MTB style visor over a solid screen, LAZER couples the Anverz NTA introduction with a second NTA helmet: Revolution NTA. Besides being certified for speed pedelec use, the LAZER Revolution NTA offers the ultimate of features and protection for those that ride on E-MTB’s.
LAZER’s Revolution NTA is designed to provide maximum coverage, while being lightweight with a cooling efficiency that can't be beat. Revolution NTA is adaptable to the riders needs with its adjustable visor. The ATS retention system is easy to adjust for a quick and comfortable fit. SMS (Safety Mounting System) accessory mount allows for the use of a sports camera or similar accessory while still allowing Revolution to pass all safety certification testing with the accessory installed.
Both the Anverz NTA and the Revolution NTA versions will be clearly recognizable through their ultra visible orange details that are provided with the logo of the NTA standard. These details will not only increase the visibility of the rider during use, they will also allow law enforcement to distinguish these NTA certified helmets from non-certified helmets.
Since the launch of with S-EPACs, also known as speed pedelecs (electric bicycles with a maximum speed of 45 km/h), speed pedelecs fell into the same category as a moped according to the new European Regulation on the approval and market surveillance of two or three-wheel vehicles and quadricycles (No 168/2013). In the Netherlands, therefore, a moped helmet (helmet according to ECE R22) was officially required when riding a speed-pedelec.
From the 1th of January 2017, in the Netherlands, speed pedelec users are allowed to wear a helmet that complies with NTA 8776. This is an alternative to the mandatory wearing of a helmet complying with ECE R22.
In June 2017 the European and Dutch cycling industry achieved a sound result in the speed pedelec helmet standardization. The members of the EU Commission CEN TC 158 Headprotection have agreed to develop specific requirements for this.
This was done at the initiative of the Dutch Normalization Institute (NEN) and the Dutch RAI Association and with the involvement of members of the European Confederation of Trade Unions CONEBI. As a result, it means that a CEN Technical Specification is now under development. A similar route will be followed as the route taken place in The Netherlands. In the coming period, the project plan will be elaborated.
Ultimately, it is up to the national governments of the EU Member States to include the new standard in the law, as did the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment within The Netherlands, in addition to the possibility of wearing the R22 (moped) helmet.
We would be thrilled to show you our full helmet and eyewear lines as well as our many LAZER innovations such as Inclination Sensor, MagClip/MagDoc system, MudClip and our collaboration with LifeBEAM.
