We are passionate riders

History

Lazer was set-up as a family business in 1919 and is the oldest brand of sports helmets in the world.

From its beginnings in an attic where leather articles were made to the hundreds of thousands of helmets produced nowadays, the Belgian brand has always had a philosophy of developing the best products with the best technologies available in each era.

Today, the story goes on: every Lazer helmet is imagined, designed, conceived, manufactured and tested by people who are passionate about crafting protection for head and brain, so that you can fully enjoy the freedom wonders of motorbikes and scooters.
