Spankers top-spec carbon flip-lid from LS2

Bluetooth, carbon shell, just 1300g - is the LS2 Vortex the poshest flip lid about?

LS2 Vortex helmet

WE'VE spoken before about LS2 helmets, and their nice quality lids for the money. So this new one looks pretty interesting. Dubbed the Vortex, it's a full carbon-fibre flip-front modular lid, with the option of a Linkin Ride Pal Bluetooth system supplied in the box, and with a claimed weight of 1300 grammes (+/- 50g), is probably the lightest flip lid we've seen.

It's got all the usual claims of a high-end lid: vents, QD visor, internal sun shield, removable washable liner etc etc. It comes with a Pinlock insert too - a decent package for the £299 retail price. If you want the (usually £129) optional Bluetooth kit thrown in, it's £399 for a limited time.
