The new Autofit system will be rolled out for child helmets first.

Lazer creates auto-adjust helmet retention

Based on Lazer Sport’s Rollsys helmet-retention system, Autofit eliminates any need to manually adjust the helmet retention. 

The new system is fully integrated, invisible from the outside of the helmet. The Autofit system – patent pending – connects the rear basket and the front head belt of the retention system and puts a constant and even tension between these two components, said a statement from the Belgian company, founded in 1919 and promoted as the world’s oldest extant helmet manufacturer. 

"To put the helmet on simply pull the rear basket and the head-belt away from each other, put the helmet on your head and Autofit system will automatically tighten itself around your head for an optimal fit each and every time," said Chris Smith of the US branch of Lazer Sport. 

"The simplicity and easy operation of the Autofit system makes it perfect for use in children’s helmets. The helmet will always have a perfect fit without the need for any additional adjustments."

Lazer’s child helmets P’nut and Nut’Z are the first to benefit from the Autofit system.
