About Lazer Cycling Helmets

Founded in 1919 Lazer, or cross SA as it was called back then was active in the motorcycle industry. It all started with Roger Lacroix who made leather articles for motorcycle riders. These items went from gloves to hats. In 1930 Roger made the first rigid leather hat, which was predecessor for the modern helmet. In 1945 the company went commercial and started selling their products on a larger scale. From there on R&D became an important part of the company, which led to a first aluminum helmet in 1948. Innovations rapidly followed each other and over the course of 20 years the helmets evolved from thermoplastic shells to injected full face helmets which passed all safety standards.
