The company

‘Always ahead’ is how LS2 describes their approach to producing high-quality motorcycle helmets. The company puts a huge emphasis on investing in research and design, which has led them to develop a number of exclusive materials, processes and technologies that feed into their helmet designs.

LS2 is all about giving customers around the world exactly what they’re looking for. And that means all LS2 helmets feature the best possible levels of safety, security and comfort, and are developed with the highest quality materials and cutting-edge technologies, but at prices that remain affordable.

The helmets

The L2S Rapid FF353 balances a high level of protection with a sleek design. Available in gloss black, matt black and a variety of eye-catching designs the helmet is ideal for daily rides and mid-distance journeys, and comes with a variety of top-of-the-line safety and design features.

The shell

The Rapid’s lightweight and aerodynamic shell is made using exclusive High Pressure Thermoplastic Technology (HPTT), where polycarbonate is injected into a mix of ABS under extremely high pressure, which provides an extremely high level of protection. It’s certified ECE 22.05, GR 1300 ± 50 and is available in sizes XS to 3XL.

The visor

The visor is made from a 3D optically correct ‘A class’ polycarbonate, which is a space-age polymer that provides a high resistance to impact, avoids distortion and offers maximum clarity. It comes with a quick release system, is scratch and UV resistant, and is Pinlock Max Vision Ready.


The Rapid has been designed with comfort in mind. The fabric comfort liner is removable, washable, breathable, hypoallergenic and made from laser-cut foam for a perfect fit.


For optimum security and to help ensure that the helmet fits your head to perfection, the Rapid boasts a micrometric buckle, reinforced chin strap, multi-density expanded polystyrene (EPS) liner and neck roll.


Last but by no means least, excellent ventilation is assured thanks to a chin vent, top vent, exhaust port, breath deflector and channelled EPS.
