LEM is getting ready for the races, unveiling all-new aero and all-around helmets to its helmet line. Both are packed with features and value, with a price point palatable to the racer budget—introducing the LEM MotivAttack and Cipressa road helmets.
The Human Powered Health Pro Cycling (formerly Rally) will be supporting the helmets this season in both road and gravel pursuits. Both helmets boast Computational Fluid Dynamics technology (CFD) for optimized aero performance that excels on the flats, and in the final sprint — through the MotivAttack seemed to get all the aero looks, the Cipressa receives a lot of the airflow.
“These two models not only bring more depth to our road/gravel collection but also offer unique features for different types of cyclists at attractive price points that together provide high-performance and value, They both also feature our new, proprietary GelMotion technology that further helps accommodate the needs of riders bringing benefits for every ride.” — Keith Cozzens, LEM’s global brand marketing director. ”
The Sprinters helmet — LEM MotivAttack
The MotivAttack is designed to excel on the flat stages and cheat the wind. It features LEMS’s new, proprietary GelMotion technology for managing high and low-energy impacts and rotational and oblique impacts. During an impact with GelMotion, the surrounding EPS foam plus energy-absorbing gel pads work harmoniously to displace energy upon impact. LEM says the pads will maintain their shape over time, and for the intended life of the helmet.
It’s reasonably aerated with 11 vents and has a sleek profile with slipstream-dimpled panels. The micro-adjust fit system is similar to the LEM MotivAir, one we found easy to use.

All-day all-road — LEM Cipressa
Complimenting the all-out aero-design of the MotivAttack, the Cipressa is a lightweight, all-around road/gravel design. The Cipressa was designed to excel in long days in the saddle where comfort and ventilation are essential.
The Cipressa features 19 vents, a micro-adjust fit system, and dual-layer PC shell technology. The Cipressa’s lightweight protection should offer a welcome breeze as you mow down miles.
