Lazer Urbanize – Helmet with Integrated Lights
We spotted this over at Columbus Rides and contacted Lazer for more info… The Lazer Urbanize was unveiled this year at Eurobike, and took home an award for innovation. It’s the Belgian company’s stab at creating a helmet specifically for the urban market.
Taking a cue from the mining industry, where helmets have been designed to accept lights for years, the Urbanize goes a step further and provides an option for lights that are built right in. Available with ($99) or without ($79) lights, the helmet uses in-mold padding and Lazer’s Rollsys adjustment system. Lazer claims there’s even room at the back for people with a ponytail.
The lights use a standard CR2032 battery, and are designed for being seen—not for seeing the road ahead. So you might not want to use the helmet as your only source of nighttime visibility.
