Pretty impressed with LS2 helmet

Good day to all,

When time came to replace my Nolan helmet, I went the way of the LS2 Strobe modular. It has everything my old helmet has: quick release strap, internal sun shield. A big plus is the metal face shield retaining system.

I went for a 200 mile ride yesterday and though it is noisy (as most modulars), not as much as the Nolan and as comfortable. All in all, pretty good helmet for the price.

I bought a LS2 Stream to replace my HJC CL-10 and love it! It is Titanium colored so it matches my 2015 DL650A perfectly!

How quiet is it? I have a cheapo Bilt Apollo, fits perfect, very comfortable, but seems a bit noisy(wind). This is my first full face and first modular, so I have nothing to compare it with.

You'd be amazed at how quiet your helmet would be with some proper ear plugs. Ya wanna avoid long term hearing loss.

Try not to land on the left side of your head!

SHARP helmet testing.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13

Hard to do that with bluetooth earbuds in & streaming tunes all the time. When the wind is "wrong" I just turn the music off since I can't hear it worth a crap even all the way up.

I can't buy a helmet without knowing 110% it fits.........did you try the LS2 out before you bought it?

No, bought it online so I took a chance. I find it true to size according to my measurements. Ordered a large and fits snug with no pressure points after a couple of hours of wearing it.

Yep! For years I never bothered and now have a permanent idling jet engine in my head.
