The LS2 OHM - This Snell 2015 approved Full Face Motorcycle helmet combines features from the street with style and airflow from the world of motocross. It’s the perfect blend for Super-Moto, Stunters, ADV riders, and for those who want to stand out from the crowd. The shell is made from LS2’s proprietary Advanced Polymer Alloy (APA), a material tough enough to withstand the rigors of competition and pass one of the toughest standards in the world. To keep with its competitive theme, the OHM offers a removable peak allowing you to run it as a regular full face, or keep the competitive off-road look on a street biased helmet. It includes our Emergency Release System cheek pads, plenty of airflow to keep you cool in the heat of the moment, and an optically correct Fog Fighter shield that is both fog and scratch resistant, and is UV protected. A wide eye port offers great visibility. The technical fabric liner is hypoallergenic and fully removable and washable. The LS2 OHM offers versatility with the protection of Snell 2015. Meets or exceeds DOT and Snell 2015 standards. Join the resistance - the LS2 OHM.

I just got this helmet and only used it for one brief ride. I couldn't find any reviews on the helmet because it is new so here it goes:
The helmet fits great. The cheek pads fit nice and snug which I think helps the helmet be so quiet. Also it helps that LS2 seems to keep the shell size as small as possible. I purchased size XL which is the size I wear with other manufacturers.
The visibility is great as the nose area is shorter than other dual sport helmets I have had. You have a great field of view and safety glasses easily fit in the helmet. The shield provides a very clear view without distortion. The shield can be cracked slightly open, halfway open, or fully open. The shield has a nice tab in the center of the shield to raise and lower it. When the shield is fully open, it is not in your field of view like other dual sport helmets I have had.
The peak is not as long as peaks on dirt helmets or other dual sport helmets. This may help reduce buffeting and noise in windy conditions. The peak is also made out of a real flexible material so it should be very durable.
I most likely will not wear goggles with the helmet. The shield is very clear and seems to seal nicely. I did try on a pair of goggles. The goggles fit under the shield, but there was not enough room for them to seal tightly to my face. I am not sure this would be a problem because the goggles seem as though they would seal off on the helmet opening just fine. I think I would like this as I do not like goggles being tight on my face.
The helmet came with double "D" rings as stated on the Dennis Kirk page although on the LS2 Helmets US site they say the helmet has a quick release strap.
The vent controls are easy to operate and have a solid feel. The air flow seems adequate without a lot of noise. For colder weather, it will be possible to easily close the front and top vents.
The fact the helmet is Snell 2015 approved is real appealing to me. So far I am very pleased with the fit and finish of the LS2 OHM Matte Black helmet. It appears to be a lot of helmet for the money and I recommend others to purchase it.
