INTRODUCTION

Investing in R&D is like stepping on the gas. It enables us to do two things: go faster than others and have more followers. Breaking ground in order to be a benchmark.

We are driven by passion. Technicians, engineers and designers give their best to get the best from our helmets.

Our aim is our customers. They are our goal. We operate in a global market and our presence is worldwide. Such a diverse range of goals poses no obstacle. Wherever there are customers, LS2 will reach them to give them what they are looking for. All this is an on-going journey, and there are no pit stops: from work to quality and from quality to success. This is our formula. Our way of thinking and doing.

DEVELOPMENT

Each LS2 helmet, in fibreglass, composite or polycarbonate is composed of three main elements, the external shell, shock absorbing EPS liner and numerous accessories such as comfort linings, method of retention, visors and ventilation.

The three main methods of production are:

  • Polycarbonate; injected in a mix of ABS utilising an exclusive process developed by our researchers named HPTT (High-Pressure Thermoplastic Technology Resin). This high precision industrial process utilises moulds sculpted from blocks of metal weighing several hundred kilos.
  • Composite fibres; combined with polymer resin which provide high abrasion resistance and are very difficult to penetrate.
  • Carbon Fibre; in multiple layers are also mixed with polymer resin. This procedure involves a process where the moulds must be able to resist temperatures in excess of 120C.

Carbon Fibre

Carbon Fibre is a material used extensively in the aeronautical industry and of course in the highly competitive world of Formula1 and MotoGP. It has incredible strength but extremely light. Four years of research and considerable investment resulted in LS2 launching its first Carbon Fibre Helmet with a double visor system.

KPA

A proprietary blend of polycarbonate, space age thermoplastics and additional materials specifically formulated by LS2, KPA: Kinetic Polymer Alloy, is ultra-lightweight and provides high penetration resistance, but with flexibility for the ultimate energy dispersion. This special formula meets both ECE 22.05 and DOT requirements.

HPFC

 Our High-Performance Fibreglass Composite (HPFC) is a carefully layered blend of a unique fibreglass weave and organic resin. HPFC provides an ultra-lightweight, but rigid shell that accepts an impact while dispersing energy for a safer ride.

In-House Knowledge

Once a shell has been removed from its mould it is checked to make sure it meets our exacting standards by our technical experts. Several layers of paint later and the graphics are applied, once in place the helmet is lacquered with anti UV and the process gives a unique touch to each helmet.

Precision Assembly

The final assembly of a helmet is then undertaken by a technician who follows a strict process for the fitting of the EPS liner, retention strap and visor mechanism, followed by the comfort liner and user instructions. Each helmet then has a final quality check before being boxed ready for dispatch.
