Great helmet for the money
07 July 2024 by Rob J
I've owned this for 8 months and have used it over 2000 miles. It's very comfortable, stable and the noise levels are fine. It has an excellent visor and easy-to operate sunshield. As others have noted, the chinstrap initially felt a bit close to my Adam's apple, but as it bedded in, I quickly got used to it, and it's not an issue at all now. For me, the main flaw is that the visor release button needs a firm and precise push with a thumb or finger to operate, otherwise you end up having to do it again. Apart from this, and the fiddly vents, it's a really solid helmet,

I bought the vector 2 mainly based on the Ride magazine best buy sub £200 helmet award. I'd also previously owned an Ls2 rapid helmet that I found excellent value.
First off the helmet looks great and the quality seems a considerable step up from the rapid.
On the downside the chin strap is too short for me and digs in to my throat. Not good.
The internal sun visor doesn't open and close properly using the switch. So I find I have to close it manually by holding the visor. It's also of a light blue tint which takes getting use to.
The worst part is the wind noise. Despite wearing earplugs I find it very noisy at anything above 40mph.
Hope this helps.
A Decent Helmet With One Critical Flaw
25 June 2024 by Craig G
The LS2 Vector 2 is, no doubt, a well put together helmet. Weight is good. Features are good. Comes with Pinlock, cut-outs for the comms are there, visor is fine and the sun-visor mechanism is good too. Graphics look lovely. Having 6 shell sizes is outstanding.

Problem (at least for me) is the positioning of the chin strap - it's just too far back, so the buckle presses uncomfortably on my adam's apple (this same issue was mentioned by one of the testers in Ride's review for this helmet).

A shame, as it's a blocker on an otherwise good helmet - I've given it 4 stars, even though I'm returning it, as I'm sure the strap won't be an issue for a lot of people, and they'll appreciate the rest of the helmet.
Recommended - bargain price as well

Superb helmet - comfortable, quiet and straight forward to install intercom - speaker cut outs exact size for the speakers.
Very pleased with the build quality, and the bonus of pin- lock provided and air cushion to rest the helmet on.
Solid helmet

Lots of features and easy to use. Seemed a great first helmet!

I have a big, fat, round head which matched the XL of this helmet, and it is bit tight, but with a balaclava it slides on and off easier.
Great Helmet, Amazing Value!

Great helmet, very comfortable! I am 59cm and the large fits me really nicely. Also the sun visor is super handy as a glasses wearer. Feels like a much more expensive helmet! Would recommend!

Nothing to fault with this helmet. Fit is snug - I measure as 61cm but ordered a 59/60 cm, large, which after a few wears has gone from snug to comfortable.
The field of vision is superb and the visor is crystal clear. Even with the sun visor down, there's no distortion. Pinlock works well.
Ventilation is also excellent and with both top vents open, the airflow is really noticeable.
My first LS2 helmet and I'm really impressed.
Best helmet I've owned
26 February 2024 by Peter L
This is a truly excellent helmet.
It is quiet, comfortable and has a quality feel to it. The strap fastener is unusual but easy to operate.
The visor fastener has a reassuring click on closing but is tricky at first to operate with Winter gloves so practice before you ride.
The only surprise was that there are no instructions provided. SBS have created a Youtube clip which is helpful.
In summary, I fully recommend this lid which, in my view, is superior to the more expensive brands I have worn.

Great quality helmet at a great price.
Just fitted an intercom which was a bit fiddly which could be partly due to her helmet being a small
Great internal sun visor looks very smart, pin lock visor included.
Great service as usual.
100mile Test - Caution if you wear glasses.
06 November 2023 by Andrew A

When I first got the helmet there was a defect in the visor, I contacted SBS and it was dealt with in the usual efficient manor, and a replacement visor was received within a couple of days.
The first test on the road was a 100mile bimble. The helmet has great visibility and is quieter than the Shark that it replaced.
I am a wearer of glasses and unfortunately the helmet pressed on the side of the glasses and when looking behind it was more than uncomfortable (to the point I may look for another helmet). I did try my glasses when I bought from the shop but I would advise you do spend some time checking this.
The sun visor was a little tricky to operate with my winter gloves but I did get more used to it in time.
The pinlock visor started to mist slightly on the RH side, I am yet to try re-sealing it but I think this will be ok.
So, in summary, If you do not wear glasses then this is a good option with only a couple of niggles but if you do, you may be disappointed.
Amazing helmet

Having had HJC helmets for a number of years I decided it was time for a change. Having looked over the reviews of the LS2 Vector 2 helmet I decided that this was the one. The plus point's are that it's quiet on the road, the top air vents work a treat, visibility is very good and it meets the latest safety standard (22.06). The negative points are poor, if non existent, air from the chin vents and the visor catch is extremely fiddly, definitely one to look at LS.
Superb helmet
02 September 2023 by Stephen P
Love this helmet I brought to replace my shark and not disappointed. It's very comfy and little wind noise. Excellent viewing through the visor with an internal sun shade that easily flips down. Another reason I considered this product was the compatibility of the Senna Spider, the headphones fit with no intrusions so your ears stay intact.
Excellent and I fully recommend.
Good helmet
27 June 2023 by Anonymous
Bought a medium at 57-58cm, mine being measured a tight 58cm using a bit of string. Very secure fit to my head, no wobble at all up down or side to side. First helmet I've had where the air vents actually feel like they do something. inner visor controlled by a slider under the left side of the helmet- works well.

The visor needs a button to be pressed down to lift it up which is a fumble while riding with one hand and the catch is attached to the visor.

Feels very natural to wear. The compressive foam is quite hard and makes it feel like the helmet is too tight around my eyes as I put it on but once my head is in there it feels secure and safe. Noise levels are good too. A very fair price and the securest feeling helmet I've owned so far.
New lid
27 May 2023 by Ronald G
Ordered my new helmet online for first time. Sizing guide was useful and accurate. Helmet fits great. Chose Sportsbikeshop due to the fantastic range of helmets on offer. Delivery was fast and convenient. I am delighted with the fit and quality of my new LS2 Vector 2. The padding and gloss finish makes it feel like a much more expensive helmet. I would recommend LS2 helmets as they fit well on my long shaped head. Good choice.
Lightweight good fit

Perfect price perfect fit.

Great helmet and safety features, stands out with the colours and the wife loves it.
LS2 Vector2 is a winner
12 March 2023 by Christopher G
LS2 Vector2 is a great mid range helmet. With a really good pinlock included I have found it really very comfortable
. The ventilation for me is perfect. The padding inside had to adjust to my large ears which it did after a week. Once used to the chin strap it's easy to do up and really simple to undo.
In the cold temperatures of the icy rainy mornings no fogging. Warm, vented and knowing it's to the new 06 safety standard is great. The visor has good visibility. Clicks nicely through the increments. The lock on the visor is a little fiddly but I for used to it. Nice tinted drop down. All round really pleased. Didn't have to spend hundreds on a more expensive lid to get a good one. Nice weight so not heavy on long journeys
