If you’re in the market for a new flip-front lid – check out LS2’s Vortex. It’s comes with a carbon fibre shell, Bluetooth connectivity and dual-homologation, meaning you can wear it open and closed. And best of all, it looks pretty stylish too.
Made from 100% high-grade carbon fibre – the same material used in Formula 1 and MotoGP – the Vortex weighs just 1300grams – which is significantly less than most other flip-front helmets on the market. LS2 say its low weight helps to keep the wearer’s head stable at speed and reduces pressure on the neck and fatigue on longer stretches – which sounds like it’d be a real bonus if you were doing some big miles.
Inside is a removable and washable lining for comfort, plus there’s Dynamic Flow-through Ventilation – with adjustable intake ports, internal channels and exhaust ports – to help deliver a constant, light flow of air. It also comes equipped with both a neck and chin curtain, a pinlock compatible quick-release 3D Optically Correct “A Class” Polycarbonate visor, and a drop down sun visor too.
The LS2 Vortex is available in sizes XS-XXL (53-64 cm) and retails for £299. And it is also available with the LINKIN Ride Pal system (RRP £129.99) for the special price of £399.99. For more information, visit: www.ls2helmets.com
