Theres nothing like a troy lee helmet, that says pro...

What's the deal? Why are they such a popular helmet even for the bloody price. I have a giro remedy that seems sweet enough for me.





P.S personally i don't have enough money to get one that's why i'm bitching.

Paint/graphics make you faster, obviously. :-) The carbon ones are really light, and fit well, but still, my moto road race helmet cost less and it was THE BEST when it came out! Ridiculous. Its all in the name.

I reckon the giro remedy is freeriders choices and troy lee is the extremely professional downhillers choice

personally i love to just throw a load of stickers on my lid and not worry about scratching my helmet, so long as it's reasonably light and has passed the required safety tests it'll be fine, here's mine, £45 in the sale nearly 3 years ago now and still going strong.(excuse the hair!)

IMO anybody under 18 with a tld helmet may as well have a big 'rich kid here' sign on their head, they are just shiney fashion statements

righto...for a free rider a giro is good cuz when u crash they arent too expensive to replace ,...a tld is though

I personally started with a Giro Mad MaxII (M/L size, the smallest size) and while in Whistler I wrecked and because it did not fit that well I ended up having to get stitches on my chin. I have a really small head and when I was shopping around for helmets the TLD was the ONLY helmet that would fit snug.(I wear the xs/sm size) I must have gone to all the shops in Whistler before spending the big bux on the TLD. I can agree with the others that have posted, I wear the composite version and it fits so well that I don't even know its there, pretty light too. It vents well and looks badass. Yeah the name means something, but the fit is why I bought mine, it's amazing. I wouldn't ride anything else.
