LS2 FF324 Metro Evo P / J, reviews Motocard
LS2 FF324 Metro Evo P / J. They could have chosen an even longer name! I guess you already know, but the letters P / J refer to double registration. As I said before, we have a modular helmet here, so double homologation means that you can move both the chin guard open and closed.
What do we look for a Trail / Adventure helmet?
I remember that we speak of a helmet that allows us to be as much on the asphalt as for dirt roads. This is exactly what allows us this LS2 Metro Evo P / J which brings together the best of these two segments. Trail and flexible at a time. The opening of the chin strap is very easy to use, and offers a well integrated result once opened.
It is very important that this helmet is so versatile since most of these helmets are generally used more on the road than off road.
One of his strong points is versatility. Not only because it is a modular helmet, but also for its solar visor. Same, easy to operate. I imagine that I do not need to remind you that you can completely disassemble the screen to install off-road glasses. If you do, do not forget to lift the sun visor.
This LS2 FF324 is a helmet with a cap made of Kinetic Polymer Alloy, a combination of polymers offering better resistance than thermoplastic. A resistant and lightweight material for this type of helmet. Its weight is 1750 grams for a size XL.
Let’s go to the screen. Here we have a transparent Lexan screen with anti-scratch treatment and protection against UV rays. A MUST for a high-end mid-range headphones. Just like its quick extraction system without the need for tools. Not to mention that it has a Pinlock MaxVision, something nice!
Regarding the ventilation system. We have front air intakes (on the upper part and on the chinrest) and rear air outlets to ensure a good air flow. The air inlets can open and close, thanks to the filter, the air will pass but not the insects can not pass.
If there is one theme that comes up very often about a helmet, it is the soundproofing. Is it a silent helmet? It must be taken into account that the FF324 Metro Evo is a modular helmet and this type of helmet is generally more ventilated than a full face helmet. So, if you are looking for a particularly quiet headset, this helmet is certainly not yours. This helmet but also any trail adventure helmet since the visor can be a reason for disagreement. Each helmet has its strengths and a little less strong.
Moreover, speaking of the solar visor, know that we can leave without any problem. On the other hand, the interior is particularly comfortable, a basic appearance and essential for a trail helmet.
3 more details: the nose guard and the neck warmer are included, the micrometric closure has a reinforced strap and there are reflective panels on the neck to make us more visible.
Conclusion of the analysis
Finally, it should be remembered that you can install a Linkin Rider Pal intercom (which is not included).
