Troy Lee really is for the World's Fastest Racers and also for the best looking. We wouldn't be surprised would we if we saw a couple of male models strutting their stuff on the catwalks of London, Milan, Paris or even New York wearing TLD.
Take a good look at the SE-2, Speed Equipment Helmet.Without doubt the most important piece of safety equipment you can purchase and wear is your helmet. PERIOD
. Now this isn't going to be a write up about wearing your helmet or even doing it up, we all read that story didn't we!
This is a quick insight into upgrading to the ultimate protection, that of an MX lid. .
The first thing you will notice besides from the stunning looks is the size and weight of this piece of artwork.
My scales showed the following weights of a D2 and a SE lid, both in a size Medium:
Just note the SE lid comes in three sizes: Medium, Large and Extra Large. The D2 comes in three different sizes: XS/S, M/L and XL/XXL.
Now some of you have the faces that only a mother could love, I'm not even going to mention what is between your ears. Remember I have to try and decipher the entry forms of the NPS series that I run. Either way you need to look after what God gave you so please read on.
For the trail pimps out there there is a wealth of functional and stylish titanium on show. This helps save grams of weight plus wins points hands down in the bling stakes on the hill. Checkout the Ti air scoop ontop, how trick is that?
Improved intake and exhaust ports, and mouthpiece for better ventilation, safety and durability. The improved internal shape and thicker liner means she fits like a glove and is super soft and cosy to wear and even comes with earpiece indents! The SE-2 helmet more than exceeds Snell M2000, M2005, US DOT, AU and CE standards and the fact that it is here on Pinkbike.com is the recommendation in itself. (That and I hear that the guys at Chainslayer.com race with them too!)
Warranty is the usual 1-year limited warranty.
If that is not enough you get an awesome deluxe helmet bag that probably retails around $50+ as well as a spare exact colour matching visor that again must be worth $50.
Therefore that hefty price tag of $495US realistically is closer to the $400 mark makes it that little bit easier to reach down into your back pocket.
The Union Jack sticker on the back:
Racing the Masters World Champs? Then you need to mark your helmet with the flag of your country. No better way than to show your British Colours than to support the Stephen Murray Stay Strong Campaign.
