Helmet impact study.

None of us really like to think about falling off, but we also know it is a reality of riding motorcycles. Sometimes people and bikes fall down. There was a helmet impact study done by a man named Dietmar Otte. It shows that there is a 62.8% chance that you will hit your face in the event of a crash. Pretty good argument for wearing a full face helmet.

So why would LS2 Helmets make 1/2 helmets and open face? Well, first because according to the CDC, you have a 37% better chance of surviving a motorcycle accident by wearing ANY DOT approved helmet and we want people to wear a helmet, whether they want a full face or not. Second, because we know that riding is a calculated risk and we believe in freedom of choice.

We also believe the safest riders are trained and educated riders. So, based upon the work of Dietmar Otte, we proffer this image and information.

You can learn more at http://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafet...revention.html.

LS2 Helmets has a slogan, "Protecting Dreams." It honestly is why we do what we do.

Hope this is useful info for you.
