If you would rather ride without music it is removable by simply opening the Audio Pocket in each ear pad and slipping out the speakers. To use it Again, simply slide the speakers back into the pocket and secure the Velcro.

Hard Shell ConstructionThe standard for a tough, reliable helmet, the Hard Shell construction is characterized by an ABS shell bonded to an EPS liner. The lightweight EPS Liner forms the inner layer of the Hard Shell and is constructed from Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) beads. Cradling the EPS liner is the acrylonitrilebutadiene-copolymer ABS injection-molded “Hard” Shell that protects the EPS from dings and nicks.
Universal Fit ShapeNot everyone has the same head shape, but we’ve got you covered with our Universal Fit Shape. Over the last year, we’ve worked tirelessly to create the most comfortable and stable fit between oval and round head shapes; the result is the next evolution in fit without compromise to comfort and overall aesthetics. Our revolutionary Universal Fit Shape combined with the K2dialed Fit System is designed to fit your unique shape so you feel an ergonomically seamless and comfortable fit regardless of your head shape.
Continuous UnderlayerA full-coverage, washable liner that breathes where you need it to while snugly cradling your head for a secure and comfortable fit on every K2 helmet. On helmets that come with our K2dialed Fit System and K2 Baseline Audio, the Continuous Underlayer is seamlessly integrated with these systems for the ultimate experience. You don’t wear boots without socks, so why would you wear a helmet without a liner?
Passive Channel VentingThe EPS liner is perforated with chimney and channel venting. The channels interconnect with the chimney vents to move air from your head to exhaust vents out the back. The result is a clean, vent-free look that offers effective symmetric ventilation around your entire head.
