LS2 - Stripper HH531 Solid Helmet
The engineers at LS2 have devised a half helmet devoid of decadence and fancy frills. This is a stripped down, bare bones approach to head protection. The LS2 Stripper HH531 Solid Helmet is a dream come true for those minimalist riders. This half helmet provides just enough head protection to still be legal. It meets the department of transportation’s requirements for head protection and nothing more.
The motorcycle half helmet is crafted out of LS2’s patented kinetic polymer alloy (KPA), a combination of polycarbonate and thermoplastic materials. This gives the half helmets a surprising amount of protective capability, while providing puncture resistance and shock absorption. Underneath the KPA layer is a multi-density EPS layer, a foam layer that also aids in shock absorption. However, the LS2 Stripper HH531 Solid Helmet provides no face, chin or neck protection. Half helmets are dramatically lighter than a full face helmet due to less material used in construction. It weighs less than two pounds in total. Another advantage of motorcycle half helmets is that that they are a cooler way to ride. They allow the breeze to blow across the riders face unobstructed, allowing them enjoy warmer weather. The inner lining is padded for comfort and can be worn for long durations. The lining is moisture wicking, meaning it helps prevent excess perspiration build up. The lining draws moisture away from the skin where it has a better chance to evaporate. The half helmet is secured to the riders head by a quick release chin strap.
