All-new for 2021, the ultra-light, full-carbon FF805 Thunder is LS2’s most technically advanced helmet yet, offering discerning riders the latest race technology and firs- class safety, with comfort and practicality for the road.
The Thunder’s 100 per cent carbon fibre shell offers high penetration resistance and energy dispersion, yet is ultralight – weighing just 1400 grams. Designed and developed in LS2’s European HQ in Barcelona, it’s aerodynamically optimised to help keep the head stable at speed and comes in three outer sizes for the smallest, lightest possible helmet in each fitment range.
Up front there’s a 3D optically correct visor, which sits in an ultra-wide aperture for maximum all-round vision. It features an ingenious quick-release system, derived from LS2’s race helmets, for hassle-free removal and fitting. It’s also ready to accept tear-offs, and comes with a Pinlock Anti-Fog System as standard.
Ventilation ports at the chin, forehead and crown; internal channeling through the EPS liner; and large exhaust ports at the rear, offer superior venting – keeping the wearer cool and comfortable when the temperature rises. Each port is quick and easy to open/close,to tailor the airflow to suit the conditions.
As you’d expect, the Thunder’s comfort liner is breathable and hypoallergenic, as well as being removable and washable for year-round freshness. The shell is designed with a ‘long-oval’ shape to follow the natural contour of the head. Combined with Laser-Cut Foam inserts, it gives a snug and reassuring fit. A Chin Curtain also comes as standard, helping to reduce wind noise inside the Thunder.
Alongside the carbon fibre shell, Multi-Density EPS inside the Thunder helps cushion the head from impact. Should the worst happen, an Emergency Release System allows first responders to remove the cheek pads without disturbing the head and neck. Safe and secure fastening is provided by the reinforced chin strap and proven D-Ring fastener. Naturally, the Thunder is Certified ECE 22.05 for road use.
