The MX453 Adventure motorcycle helmet is designed to get the job done, no matter the conditions. It has the lightweight comfort of an off-road helmet with the convenience of adjustable ventilation; an optically correct shield and a peak so you can better control the elements. The peak has large openings to there's no worry of lift or drag, and we've found that by tilting your head just slightly forward, this helmet gets super quiet. The helmet shell is made of lightweight, tri-composite fiberglass. The comfort foam is laser cut for comfort and a secure fit. This helmet stays in place. The moisture wicking comfort liner is fully removable and washable, and is anti-bacterial and odor resistant to stay as fresh as the day it was new. Hand wash and air dry liners. Double-D-ring strap keeps it secure. DOT/ECE certified.

Only gripe is I wish LS2 would make an instruction video on how to change out the visor because that took me forever to do. Also, I didn't like the fact that if I removed the peak the rear vents were ugly looking metal screen.
Got to crash test this helmet after less than a month of owning it. Helmet did it's job and saved my head. The peak snapped in the center from the impact. I ran out of road 40 MPH into a turn, when off the road and dumped the bike. The back of the helmet has scratched all over the finish for my last little bit of the crash which was a slide across gravel.
I did like this helmet a lot and was sad that it didn't last very long considering the crash. It'll probably be a back up offroad only helmet for me now, since I have replaced it with the new LS2 Pioneer Trigger helmet.
Fit: Absolutely a long oval shape. Very comfortable, and sizing is close to Arai (I wear a M in the Signet Q, and a L in the LS2). The rear neck roll seems to bunch up when I slide it on, but I just reach back and pull it down. No hot spots or weird pressure points. I can wear it all day.
Visor: Great field of vision. Fogging doesn't seem to be an issue, but I haven't worn it below 50 degrees. Two major issues here: 1) the visor won't seal properly. Turn your head for a lane check, and the visor pops open about an inch. Just won't stay shut. Also allows moisture in from the top. 2) My biggest complaint is the visor attachment "system", and the lack of any mention re: how to switch visors. Took me 15 minutes with a screwdriver and tons of cursing to get the smoked visor on. LS2 really needs to address this in the product docs, or do an instructional video. They seem to do this for other helmets, but not for the LX453.
Weight: Extremely lightweight helmet. It is noisy, but bearable with earplugs.
Overall, this helmet is a good value for the price. Would I put up with the visor/sealing issues if I was dropping $600 for an Arai? No way. But, at $170 I can overlook those issues because this helmet does other things well.
first, the fit is very tight. I normally wear large so I bought large base on the measurements and I had a hard time getting the helmet on and even a tougher time getting it off. But the tightness is getting better the more I use it.
Second issue is the wind noise, even with air plugs it is louder than my other helmets , but I guess that is just how helmets of this type are.
The final and biggest issue I have with this helmet is the distortion on the visor. The curves on the visor creates a distortion so when I am riding and I look down at my mirrors it appears as if the sun is shinning right in my eye or as if you are looking through bifocals which makes it hard to see. I give it 3 1/2 stars
