Michal Kosík and LS2 Helmets
Michal Kosík – a Czech extreme biker whose life has completely changed 10 years ago. During a Freestyle exhibition he suffered a serious spine injury. Michal ended up in a wheelchair. However, Michal didn’t give up on his life and because he was still tempted to the downhill and freeride, he developed a completely unique terrain quad for disabled – a brutally sprung downhill machine which made him famous throughout the world.
Michal entrusts his safety to a motocross helmet LS2 MX456 during his adrenaline spree and says „I’m glad that I own this helmet. LS2 MX456 is amazingly light, comfortable and mainly it’s a safe helmet. I can proclaim that quite responsibly, because with my wide-two track machine i have to cope with extreme biker downhill parks, it also quite often leads to a crash. And since I’m strapped in the seat of my downhill quad, which usually ends up rolling at the high speed, I use a neck brace made by Leatt which perfectly works with this LS2 helmet.“
