If you like mixing road riding and escaping down trails and dirt tracks, then you might also enjoy the new LS2 MX701 Explorer Dual Sports helmet.
It’s fairly lightweight at 1460g, with an outer shell in LS2’s High Performance Fiberglass Composite in three sizes so you don’t just end up with masses of padding as the difference between an extra small or large version. Or end up with a 2XL lid making you look like a bobblehead.
You also geta micrometric metal buckle and reinforced chin strap, along with an emergency release system to remove the cheek pads after an accident.
The new LS2 MX701 Explorer dual sports helmet is ECE 22.05 certified for road use and comes in XS-2XL in solid white or black for £199.99. Or the Alter graphics design is available in black with high vis yellow, fluo orange, or white for £219.99. A carbon shell version of the Explorer is also available for around £100 more. Or there’s the LS2 Pioneer Evo, which has some new graphics for 2021 at a lower price point than the Explorer.
You can order LS2 helmets online from GhostBikes (or RevZilla in the U.S), including some good discounts and deals. If you’re looking for a new motorcycle helmet, why not check out our other Helmet news and articles, or our previous coverage of the LS2 range?
