The Best Technology
LS2 Storm Matt Zwart full-face motorcycle helmet offers the performance and features of
helmets costing two to three times as much, but because we build it in our own factory, LS2is able to offer it at an incredible value.
The shell is uses LS2’s proprietary KPA. It’s light, but strong. Easy to use and fully adjustable top vents are ported to allow true flow through ventilation.
A proprietary blend of polycarbonate, space age thermoplastics and additional materials specifically formulated by LS2, KPA (Kinetic Polymer Alloy) Offers ultra-light weight and high penetration resistance, but with some flexibility for the ultimate in energy dispersion. This special formula meets both ECE 22.05 and DOT requirements.
LS2 visors are built with 3D Optically Correct “A Class” Polycarbonate, a space-age polymer with high resistance to impact, that avoids distortion and offers maximum clarity.
- UV Resistant Treatment of the visor with UV-free clear coating.
- Scratch Resistant Surface treatment of the visor against small abrasive impact.
- Quick Release System
- Pinlock Visor
Twin Shield System
LS2’s drop-down sun shield helps protect the rider’s eyes from bright sun, and moves up and out of the way quickly and easily when entering dark tunnels, offering a more comfortable riding experience.
LS2 Storm Matt Zwart Comfort
- Extra comfort liners
- Hypoallergenic (We use hypoallergenic technical fabrics that wick moisture to help keep you cool while you ride).
- Laser-cut Foam (Multi-density foam is cut using LS2’s 3D Laser Technology and formed to fit the curves of the rider’s face for a perfect fit with no hot spots).
- Chin Curtain
LS2 Storm Matt Zwart Security System
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 configuration of the EPS liner, which should match closely the human head shape.
- Reflective Safety Patch To increase rider safety at night or in low visibility conditions the neck roll has a reflective safety patch that glows in the light of other vehicle’s headlights.

General information about LS2 Helmets
THE HISTORY Of LS2 Helmets
Mr. Arthur Liao invested about 350 Euros and started his fledgling helmet business in a tiny house of less than 600 square feet. At that time he could only afford to hire one employee, Mr. Peng Zheng. Twenty years later, Peng is still working for the company. Together they started to manufacture their first helmets from this small rural workshop.
Demand for the helmets increased fast. To capitalize on this Arthur needed to expand the business. He leased a 4000 sq. ft factory, and recruited another 100 personnel to the team. Meanwhile, Mr. Stephan Liao (Arthur’s brother) joined the management and strived to develop and prepare for future business.
Our helmets are sold throughout the country Our trademark “FENGXING” had played a very important role in the domestic market and our helmets had been a huge success all over the country. That year, we finally moved into our own 18000 sq ft purpose built factory.
As the first pioneer in helmet industry in China, Arthur had already turned his vision to the global market and changed his helmet trademark to “MHR”. To be taken seriously in the global market required serious and ambitious investment to modernize the factory, it’s machinery and technology. This investment paid off with international praise and recognition for MHR’s products.
As the business continued to grow rapidly Arthur realized that he could not continue to expand the factory alone. He requested his other brother, Mr. Paul Liao, join to manage MHR’s further expansion, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge gained in his own successful business. Paul joined MHR on June 28, a very momentous occasion which meant MHR would truly become a family firm and also laid the foundation for today’s achievements at MHR.
LS2 is always looking ahead. This is the only way to make history and go far.
Investing in R&D is like stepping on the gas. It enables us to do two things: to go faster than others and to 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 LS2 Technologies
Each LS2 helmet, in berglass, composite or polycarbonate is composed of three main elements, the external shell, shock absorbing EPS liner and the numerous accessories such as comfort linings, method of retention, visors and ventilation.
The three main methods of production are as follows:
— Polycarbonate injected in a mix of ABS utilizing an exclusive process developed by our researchers named HPTT (High Pressure Thermoplastic Technology Resin). This high precision industrial process utilizes moulds sculpted from blocks of metal weighing several 100 kilos.
— Composite bers, combined with polymer resin which provide high abrasion resistance and are very dicult to penetrate.
— Carbon Fiber in multiple layers are also mixed with polymer resin. This procedure involves a process where the molds must be able to resist temperatures in excess of 120 C.
Carbon Fibre is a material used extensively in the aeronautical industry and of course in the highly competitive world of Formula 1 and Moto GP. It has incredible strength but extremely light. Four years of research and considerable investment has resulted in LS2 launching its first Carbon Fibre Helmet with a double visor system.
IN HOUSE KNOWLEDGE
Once a shell has been removed from its mold 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.
The final assembly of a helmet is then undertaken by a technician who follows a strict process for fitting of the EPS liner, retention strap and visor mechanism. And finally the comfort liner and user instructions. Each helmet then has a final quality check before being boxed ready for dispatch.
A certain number of our helmets are never sold as we batch test every model in our test laboratory. Each helmet is looked at in minute detail to ensure that quality and safety are paramount. We also verify that each model meets or exceeds the test standard required by its country of destination. This may be ECE, DOT ,BSI or indeed Snell. Numerous tests are undertaken on the EPS and the external shell for shock absorbtion. We also test the fit as many testing houses now take this into account. For example SHARP TESTING in the UK.
