New helmet buying season was extended over here so I got a new "summer" model. One with a visor and drop-down shades. As I've never done it before and it seems to becoming more and more popular I decided to do an "unboxing" but with stills instead of a video just to be unique.
Now, that I've peaked your interest and have y'all stiiin' on the edge of your seats with anticipation I present the LS2 Verso.

Arriving by special carrier the well packed box sits in stately repose awaiting my attention.


After careful extraction the naked box sits ready to be invaded by quivering fingers.


Our first gimps of our new helmet is thwarted by this textile covering but what a beautiful thing it is nestled among the snap on visor, stick on reflective decals and a most kind letter from the shop from whence it was purchased.


At last, the helmet appears sitting free of its textile covering but still bearing the protective films on it's tender parts.


Face shield removed and replaced with the visor or helmet presents its anterior and posterior images for your perusal.



Doesn't such a presentation just leave you tingling?

I love LS2 helmets. But they are heavy. I have their cruiser helmet and the Valiant. Last month I was looking at this Verso as it is comfortable and looks good.
But, I went with the Daytona as it was so light, close fitting, and still had a comfortable liner. It is non-removable though.
That Verso is still a looker.
The only question I have unanswered is the noise level. The Valiant is a bit high.
With those protrusions on the side, I'm thinking it creates a bit more noise.
I can tell a slight difference in temp with vents open, but I can't feel the air flow on LS2 helmets.
Anyhoo, still a great helmet. And that graphic isn't available here (that I'm aware of).
Congrats.....
Oh, does it come with batteries or do you have to provide your own ?

Cool helmet.  Looks sharp, and I love the color.  Great documentation of the “unboxing.”  That would make a great You Tube video.

The ear pads snap out else they're too tight. This allows for serious air flow and noise isn't a factor as this one is only used in town where I rarely get above 70MpH.

The HiViz color was mandatory regardless of which one i'd've chosen. Being seen, the way we split lanes over here, is kinda necessary.

No, you have to supply your own batteries & those 4 D cells do add to the overall weight.

Earplugs solve the noise issue.  I wish I’d learned to use them earlier in my riding career.  I now have a high frequency hearing loss and require hearing aids. At least I used them for the last 12 years of riding. I just got some cheap ones in the pharmacy section of the grocery store.  I think I paid around $5.00 for them.

Greg I think high frequency hearing loss is normal for all men as we get older. It's our way to have an excuse to not listen to our wives after retirement.

While in the Navy I worked under the arresting wires, slept under the catapults and later worked over the engines so I've got a REALLY GOOD excuse.

The new helmet reveal is always a fun process. Haven't bought one in a while.

The HiViz color was mandatory regardless of which one i'd've chosen.

HiViz is my preference as well. Good call.

PeggySuz is always reminding me I need to “Put your ears in!!”  when I forget to put my hearing aids in.  It was really difficult to give in to the need for the hearing aids.  Pride, I guess.  I do seem to say “Huh?” as often, though.
