New in 2023 | A new trail helmet from Lazer: the Coyote KinetiCore

Lazer, a well-known Belgian brand in the field of protections, has just unveiled a new version equipped with KinetiCore technology of its helmet intended for trail running, the Coyote. Between weight reduction and improved level of protection, here is what we already know:

Previously only available with MIPS, the Lazer Coyote is a helmet designed for trail/all-mountain practice. For 2023, the Belgian brand has decided to expand its range by also offering a version equipped with its own technology called KinetiCore.

We presented this KinetiCore technology to you in great detail during our visit to the premises of the Belgian brand (read Novelty test | Lazer Jackal KinetiCore: safer and lighter?). The result of several years of development, and associated with university projects throughout Europe (Porto, Dublin, Antwerp, Louvain, Strasbourg, etc.), this Lazer-specific technology aims to offer increased protection against rotational shocks, without compromising on weight or ventilation.

For the weight, the bet is won since the Coyote KinetiCore is announced at 340 g in size M, a gain of around 15 g compared to the MIPS version. As far as ventilation is concerned, this will have to be confirmed in the field, even if we must admit that the Jackal KinetiCore left us with a good impression on the subject.

In terms of protection, this construction in the form of “dots” of EPS foam, separated by channels (instead of the traditional uniform shell), earned the Coyote KinetiCore the rating of 5 stars by the independent test laboratory Virginia Tech.

As for the Jackal (read: Test Ride #27 | Lazer helmet, JeansTrack shorts and UpStand stand), the visor fits perfectly into the lines of the helmet for a rather successful visual rendering. This visor is adjustable in 3 positions, and allows in the high position to offer enough space to position a mask according to Lazer. The Belgian brand also explains that it has taken care of comfort when the helmet is worn with glasses.

For the rest, the Coyote KinetiCore has an occipital tightening in the form of a wheel, also adjustable in height in order to best adjust to the head of the pilot in question. There is also a magnetic buckle closure, an increasingly common option on mountain bike helmets.

The Lazer Coyote KinetiCore is available in three sizes (S, M, and L) as well as seven colors. It is now available at the price of 99€.
