Because we continue writing the history of LS2 with every new product, getting ahead of the future with quality and using the know-how and expertise of today.
Our commintment to saftey and comfort is the mark of our succes. And succes is only achieved by looking forward with the experience of the long road travelled. With hard work and passion we try to make the world a better place one helmet at time. 

The game has changed
Ask a motorcyclist about the "best helmet" in the world, and invariably you will hear a very short list of names. This is an elite club that is the dream of every brand in the world. It is a challenge worthy of the fight and LS2 has enterd the arena. 

LS2 Headquaters
LS2 is a brand from the Chinese manufacturer Arthur Liao. The headquarters is esthablised at Hong Kong. The factories are standing in Guandong, the carcountry in China.

Designed in Barcelona
Here at LS2 we think of safety, design and functionality when we design our range. The creation of a new helmet is a very specialized affair taking in many different areas of technology. Our designs, engineers and technicians are all passionate about motorcycling and when designing and producing a new helmet they use this knowledge and passion to create a range of helmets wich are better than the last.

Beauty is on the inside
Each LS2 helmet, either in Carbon, HPFC, KPA or HPTT is composed of three main elements, the external shell, an internal shock absorbing EPS and numerous accessoires such as comfort linings, retention systems, visor and more.

Not Ordinary People
We believe in the uniqueness of people, in those who give life to our helmets every day and go out into the streets making their daily lives one-of-a-kind. People who are diverse but having, nevertheless, a lot in common. Our "Not Ordinary People Series" is a tribute to people who enjoy life in a different way. 

Outstanding Material
Carbon Fibre is a material used extensively in the aeronautical industry and of course in the highly competitive world of Formula 1 and MotoGP. It has incredible strenght but it's extremely light. LS2 uses multiple layers of our exclusive wide-weave carbon fibre for a very light, but strong shell that handles impacts in the most efficient and safe way.
High Performance Fibre Composite is a carefully layered blend of a unique weave of fibres pre-impregned with resin into a strong, ultra lightweight, but rigid shell that accepts an impact while dispersing energy for a safer ride.
A proprietary blend of polycarbonate, space age thermoplastics and additional materials specifically formulated by LS2. KPA: Kinetic Polymer Alloy, offers ultra-light weight and hig penetration resistance, but with some flexibility for the ultimate in energy dispersion. This special formula meets both ECE 22.05 and DOT requirements.
In an exclusive process developed by our researchers named HPTT (High Pressure Thermoplastic Technology) a mix of ABS is injected in moulds. The moulds used in this high precision industrial process are sculpted from blocks of metal weighing several hunderd kilos.

Optimal Vision
Perfect vison is essential to ensure saftey on the road. For this reason all our visors are built with a 3D optically correct "A Class" Polycarbonate, a material with high resistance to impact, that avoids distortion and offers maximum clarity. Additionally, most of our helmets are available with an integrated sun visor, making tehm suitable for any kind of ride.

Aero- Dynamics
The design of the external shell of our helmets takes advantage of several aerodynamic principles to use wind energy in favor of the rider both professional and amateur. The shape of the shell and ventilation ports helps to maintain stability while driving and to renew the air inside the helmet efficiently. 

Technology for all
Engineers and developers at LS2 look at the needs of the market every day and are always on the quest for new technology to incorporate into our products. We still however maintain our principle of making such technology affordable for the greatest number of riders. Therefore each helmet we produce benefits from this work ethic making each helmet functional for those who ride everyday.

Handmade Excellence
Once a shell has been removed from its mold it is checked by our technical experts to make sure it meets our exacting standards. The shell is then coated with several layers of the base colour paint and then the graphics are applied by hand using decals placed by our skilled manufactures. Lastly, the helmet is lacquered with an anti UV coating to ensure the colour remains as good as the first day and to give an extra layer of protection to all the materials beneath.

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

 Perfect fitting
To ensure good protection the helmet must fit your head to perfection, special attention should be paid to the shell shape design and materials to minimize the effects of a possible impact. It is key to obtain a perfect fit to your head from outside to inside, as well as the shell, the configuracion of the EPS liner, wich should match closely the human head shape.
