LS2 Subverter Helmet Chin Mount for Action Cameras

LS2 made their Subverter helmet to be durable using their proprietary “Kinetic Polymer Alloy” shell which they bill as both strong and lightweight. The Subverter was also designed to be pretty breezy, incorporating 35 vents in their KPA shell. Weighing in at just shy of 3.5 pounds, that is the equivalent of about 14 quarter-pounder (with cheese) sandwiches from a well known fast food chain, so the weight claim might be a little suspect, but we can attest to the existence of the vents.

Those vents made designing an action camera chin mount for this helmet a bit trickier than most of the others that we have made. Getting it to extend far enough from the chinbar to allow the camera to have enough “tip back” angle and not have our mount extend the entire length of the helmet took some work, but we are pretty proud of this design. Tip back angle is important as it allows you to align the camera with your eyeport on the helmet to get a parallel view of the terrain - a little of the bike, a little of the horizon - you know, the perfect perspective.

We have found that the chin mount location is optimal for a POV camera for a couple of reasons. First, audio pick up is much better. With the camera in front of your mouth you can clearly hear yourself swearing as your buddy pulls away or when you hit the deck trying to catch them. Second, your camera does not stick out where a tree branch can knock it out of alignment, or worse, send it tumbling into the weeds or off the side of a cliff. While there is a chance that you may hit the camera if you crash, we have found that most people do their best to turn their head to avoid a face full of dirt whenever possible. Even if you do go chin first into a rock, we can promise you that the mount will not break.

That is a bold statement, one that we back up with a lifetime warranty. Hassle free, just let us know and we will get a new one out to you.

Our chin mounts are made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane which has rubber-like properties. This allows us to make mounts that are flexible enough to twist into a pretzel, but strong enough to keep your camera pointed exactly where you aim it without inducing vibration even at full boogie over rocky terrain. Mounting this to your LS2 Subverter is easy thanks to the waterproof 3M mounting tape that we use.

We designed the mounts for maximum convenience, not just durability. The GoPro mounting screw is on the opposite side making it easier to access the battery side door. We also have notches to help you get a consistent tip back angle every time.

The mounts are designed to be removable without leaving any residue on the helmet, and we do offer replacement 3M mounting tape if you want to reattach it later. That said, you will need to also pick up some Gorilla Clear Grip Glue (say that five times fast) to adhere the tape to the mount.

If you were wondering if our mounts work with the Media Mod, the answer is yes, so get out there and make some epic content.

  • Chin Mount for the LS2 Subverter.
  • Mounting screw
  • Sweet WannaBes stickers.

I pointed out in my first ride video for my KTM 500EXC-F that the bike had a tendency to flame out quite a bit more than I thought it should, and after adding the GET ECU, I had a few issues restarting the beast.
