LS2 Helmets was founded in 1990 by Arthur Liao in China. The company first set about conquering the Chinese helmet market. But by 1998, LS2 was ready to expand its horizons. So it began exporting its helmets to other countries around the world. In 2005, Liao and his brother Paul established the Jiangmen Pengcheng Helmets, LTD (JPH) and began manufacturing more than 2 million helmets a year, making it one of the leading producers of lids in the world.
In 2007, Arthur and his brother Paul founded Tech Design Team in Barcelona Spain so that they could distribute their LS2 helmets throughout Europe. Not a company to ever rest on its laurels, JPH followed up this breakthrough by signing a franchise agreement with Allwin Powersports Corporation in 2010. This alliance gave JPH a way to distribute its LS2 helmets in North America.
LS2 is active in the motorsports world, and its helmets can be found on some of the most successful racers in the world, including five-time Dakar Rally winner Cyril Despres, Moto2 rider Ramon Ramos and five-time World Enduro Champion Ivan Cervantes. Why is this important? Because you know that these riders face some serious challenges during their races and that they take their own personal safety very seriously. So, of course, they are going to choose the best brain buckets on the market to protect their heads.
In addition, these racers share their insights about these helmets with LS2’s research and development teams so that they can create even better lids in the future. Because even though LS2 helmets are state of the art, this company is always searching for ways to improve its brain buckets. For example, LS2’s Light helmet is crafted from its proprietary High Performance Fiberglass Composite (HPFC), which makes it both very lightweight and incredibly tough. And while these high-quality, innovative helmets may sound like they would cost you a fortune, you can actually find them for sale at very low prices here at Jafrum.
