LS2 unveil new motocross helmet
LS2 have unveiled a mean-looking, new motocross helmet called the Subverter with a vibrant paintjob and a Kinetic Polymer Alloy (KPA) construction. The material is designed to be lightweight and flexible (to aid energy absorption) without sacrificing strength.

The new helmet weighs 1300g and is certified to the ECE 22.05 safety standard meaning it is legal to wear on the road, too.
There’s plenty of venting on the Subverter to keep you cool while you toil off-road, but the liner in removable for washing if you do get sweaty.
The helmet fastens with a secure double D-ring helmet to keep it secure, and the cheek pads can be safely removed in seconds in the event of a crash to limit the neck movement of the fallen rider.
The LS2 Subverter comes in sizes XXS-3XL and has three different shell sizes across the size range. A choice of three solid colour versions cost £149 while the ten graphic options are £179.
