Synthe is Giro’s pinnacle of the road bike helmet. It provides superior 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.
Both products are awesomely great, but we want to see which one is superior to 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 also excellent, 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 those of Synthe. Hence, if you want to appear impressive and dashing, Lazer Z1 suits you better.
However, appearance is only a tiny piece of aspect of the whole road bike helmet. We want something strong, rugged, and durable, yet comfortable, convenient, and neat on our heads. 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 ensure 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.

Lazer Z1 indeed gives some more edges than Giro Synthe. The main difference is the ventilation system. However, the advantages are of minor significance. You can already get great coolness with Giro Synthe, so the additional five vents may be unnoticed. Since Lazer Z1 is more expensive than Giro Synthe, Giro Synthe provides a better value-per-money-spent.
