LS2 MX470 SUBVERTER HELMET
LS2, Spanish manufacture of high quality helmets is also a brand delivering big bang for your buck with the introduction of the MX470 Subverter helmet.
Priced around $200USD, the Subverter competes at the entry level price point while offering features comparable to some of the most expensive helmets on the market.
Constructed from Kenetic Polymer Alloy (KPA) the helmet shell offers just the right blend of rigidity and flex. Three different shell sizes offers a wide spectrum of fitment from XS to XXL.
Its intermediate oval shape, which is longer from front to back and narrow on sides, also makes for excellent fit. Weighing in at 3lbs 3oz for the small and 3lbs 9oz for the large size is another impressive feature for such a well priced helmet.
Two of the biggest standout features of the MX470 Subverter is ventilation and impact protection.
Clearly evident when looking at the helmet is the number of honeycomb ventilation ports which provide a high degree of airflow. Four forward facing large ports in combination with the chin vents funnel a mass amount of air into the helmet.
A series of 14 other vents located on top and the back of the helmet provides additional ported exhaust ventilation. All told, the series of ventilation ports on the MX470 make it one of the most ventilated helmets on the market and a perfect choice if you're riding in a hot climate or someone that needs that extra degree of venting.
Inside the helmet you'll find a hypoallergenic liner that is removable and washable. To mitigate head injuries the multi-density EPS liner has a polycarbonate coating that allows the liner to easily slip.
This controlled movement reduces injuries for low speed rotational impacts. Should a rider ever be injured, pull-tabs on each of the cheek pads along with a quick release strap makes for easy helmet removal in case of an emergency.
One of the other standout features of the MX470 Subverter helmet is the flexible visor that not only adjusts up and down but also back and forth for added protection from roost and sun.
Available in 9 different color designs the MX470 Subverter is a helmet that offers a ton of features for a great price.
