LS2 Uses their proprietary Kinetic Polymer Alloy (KPA) for the shell. It's lightweight, offers just a little flex as part of the energy management system, and is ultra strong. Its tests as well as the best composite materials in the world amd ios the perfect material for for a raing helmet. LS2 uses 3 shell sizes for the Subverter to assure that you get the smallest, lightest shell possible for your specific size. In fact, this is one of the smallest shells in the buisness.
But things get even better. The internal, energy absorbing EPS uses in-molding technology, attatching an interna, polycarbonate protective layer between the Dual-Density EPS and the comfort padding. This layer is slick, and allows comfort liner just a bit of slippage to help offset and diminish rotational energy and dramatically improve the disipation of energy of energy absorbed by the EPS. In other words, it takes energy management to a new, better level.
From the start of the design concept, the Subverter was designed with state-of-the-art safety in mind. The lower edge of the shell is designed to work in conjunction with popular neck braces. ther's a curved edge to assist in protecting the clavicle. The shell is 35 seperate ventilation ports , with challeEPS to allow the maximum possible airflow\,keeping the the rider cooler in the heat of competition. The comfort padding uses LS2's thermo-weld system, reducing the need for glues, It allows the fabric to be more breathable and comfortable.
The liner is removable amd washable, so you can keep it as fresh as new. The eye port is wide, allowing for a full field of vison, and accomodates virtually any brand of goggles, We use a metal security plate triangle to reinforce chinsrap rivet, just as an added touch.
