After an extremely successful Tour de France and with high ambitions for current and future races, Team Jumbo-Visma and Lazer are proud to announce that they have prolonged their partnership for the supply of Lazer helmets and development partnership for the team. In addition, Lazer will be added to the partners of the new Academy team of Team Jumbo-Visma.
Lazer will be supplying Team Jumbo-Visma with the latest developments within cycling helmets, such as the aero Lazer Bullet 2.0 with its adjustable ventilation, the extremely low-drag Lazer Victor and the lightest helmet that Lazer has ever made. In addition, both partners will join forces within the development of future helmet technologies.
