Troy Lee Designs - TLD is for the Worlds Fastest Racers. Here are the first spy shots of the new TLD lid range from our man in the know Si Paton.. These images are so hot, we recommend you wear protective glasses before clicking here..

First up I'm no professional photographer so apologies if these images aren't A1 enough for you. I was too busy shaking with excitement and drooling when these were taken.

When TLD dropped these round to Superfly Central I was hoping they weren't going to pull out a new range of lids covered in flame designs. A huge sigh of relief as one by one they came out of their boxes and shone right back at us.

TLD Composite Lucha

TLD Composite Lucha

RRP £244.99

The Lucha is a comosite lid and weighs in at 1,115grams in a medium as does the composite history.

The history helmet below if you look closely shows every sticker TLD have ever produced during their 25+ years plus of "history", get it?.

TLD Composite History RRP £244.99

New for 2009 are the nylon lock bolts that are inserted into the helmet at the side of your temples. This is where the side screws screw into for the peak to attach. These are designed to pull out during a big impact meaning less chance of your head getting turned as the peak digs in and possibly causing a neck injury.

TLD Carbon Crow

Another close look and you can see a crows beak and eyes right by the mouthpiece. The carbon weave is very subtle and the detail on these lids is unbelievable. TLD have really lifted the beam on these ones.

TLD Carbon Crow RRP £329.99

Think these are good? News of a D3 with a couple of signature models on their way? Will we see a Sam Hill and a Steve Peat version or even a Josh Bryceland one, how about that? Slightly different mold, venting system and padding. Only time will tell, what time? Easter. Cost? Expect there to be a number four in there. That's just my guess so don't count on that for sure.

TLD Carbon History RRP £329.99

Will the history lids in carbon be the best sellers? Only time will tell. Last year the composite Peaty lid was the No1 lid for TLD. Good news is that they have relaunched it again for 2009 so for all you Peaty fans another bite at the cherry.

TLD Carbon History RRP £329.99

How heavy are the carbons in M/L? Answer = 946grams

 yeah ill most likely get down propped for this but the price of them is farrr to high, my friend bought one and it was £150, so basicly $230 .. too much if you ask me when the same job would be done with a £70 661

 yaaah.. they are. like i bought a 06 TLD. and lasted 3 weeks then i crashed head first.. gone $400. now i bought a second one same one and hasnt been broken yet... like 800$ on helmets. quite expensive. but worth it cuz they r the sickest helmets ever and the lightest I think.

*i know my writing is sh*t. i dont care write so dont tell me I cant write.*

 beautiful helmets but i would never buy one, sure they looks amazing but unless your sponsored its pretty pointless to have one, helmets get banged, droped, scuffed, and eventually shattered so there is no point in paying 250$+ for a helmet when something like a 100$ Mace helmet is gona protect you just the same. love the desings though, really like the history model.

 Duh! You can't put a price on your head! Fool.

 I spent $160 bucks for my sons helmet. He went over the handle bars into a rock.cracked the helment. His head did not. spent another $160 on a new one. He slipped of a ladder bridge and broke the mouth guard not his teeth. a good helment that fits right is worth every penny.

 i paid £80 for my 661 helm ive falen off 3 times and hit my head bad but my helmet is still wearable you shudnt have to replace it every crash
  • - 1
 if the helmet has any damage past cosmetic then it NEEDS to be replaced.
  • + 1
 TLD lids don't shatter if you crash,they are not only the sweetest lids out there hands down they are super tough and light and compfortable and you're right expensive but,I think they have come down in price-no?
  • + 1
 i got a 661 full bravo for about 2 or 3 years now. cheap and cheerful Smile

i havent fallen on my head really so its fine, just a few scrapes, anyone broken one that they have had?
  • + 0
 if you like "dope" looking lids then go buy one, find an air bursh ( or someone that knows how to really well) and have them make you your own? thats what i did with my non-full face
  • + 2
 TLD helmets are class but I wouldnt wonna ride with one, I would be wayy to scared of scuffing or damaging the helmet. lol

 alright first off to Fingel that is incorrect because these have technology in them to protect your dome better than other helmets thats why they are so expensive and second those rasta gloves are dope!

 TLD makes lids for everything. They do Moto lids.. as well as indy/F1 lids. They're amazing. but a little over priced My Specialized carbon deviant helmet is half the price and just as light and I've thrown myslef over the bars on the WC bromont course smacking my face off rocks. no scratches and good protection. Id hate to scratch any of these helmets. They're only for the elite, the sponsored or the people who have too much money.
