Synthe is Giro’s pinnacle of the road bike helmet. It provides premium high-level performance to the user. On the other hand, Lazer has released their Z1 as the contender, a helmet claiming to be the newest standard definition of high performance.
Needless to say, both products are awesomely great, but we want to see which one is more superior so that we can make use of our well-earned cash for the best choice. Let us delve into the comparison!

Design-wise, most people prefer the Z1 over Synthe. While the Giro Synthe is actually also kind of cool, it is still way too plain. Compare it with the Lazer Z1’s look; a little edgier and more sporty. The available colors on the Z1 are also more diverse than of Synthe. Hence, if you really want to appear impressive and dashing, Lazer Z1 will probably suit you better.
However, appearance is only a tiny piece of aspect from the whole road bike helmet. We want something strong, rugged, durable, yet comfortable, convenient, and neat on our head. Giro Synthe features an in-mold polycarbonate shell with EPS liner, maintained by a Thermoformed SL Roll Cage Internal Reinforcement structure that keeps the helmet properly integral on impact.
The Lazer Z1 has in-mold construction combined with the ARS Advanced Rollsys retention system to make sure it stays guarding your head no matter what. So they both provide excellent protection. The ventilation on Giro Synthe consists of 26 wind tunnels integrated with internal channeling, while Lazer Z1 claims to have extreme breathability with 31 vents on it.

I would say, Lazer Z1 indeed gives some more edges than Giro Synthe. The main difference is the ventilation system. However, the edges are not of big significance. You can already get superb coolness with Giro Synthe, so additional five vents may not be a lot noticeable. Since Lazer Z1 is more expensive than Giro Synthe, then Giro Synthe provides a better value-per-money-spent.
