Press Release: TSG


TSG are super excited to release their brand new full-face downhill mountain bike helmet, the SENTINEL. Designed for progressive DH riding and hardcore jump sessions, this lightweight (1160g), sleek and super-ventilated helmet delivers premium protection to bikers who push their limits. TSG are eco-conscious so when it finishes protecting your head the ABS and Polycarbonate shell can be recycled. All this for an MSRP of €199,95.

Sentinel Full-Face Helmet

Setting new standards in DH MTB head protection, the Sentinel is a collaborative creation of the TSG team, apparel designer and mountain biker Jonas Janssen and leading helmet designer Stephane Dion. At its core is a super-tough ABS outer shell, with a refined silhouette and toughened PC-laminated EPS foam protective faceguard. 12 airflow vents deliver cool riding at all speeds and a wide eye port, with visor, provides superior peripheral vision and perfect fit for goggles.

Inside the Sentinel, the helmet’s liner and cheek pads are all removable and washable, so the helmet can be box-fresh on every ride. “TSG wanted to offer a high-end downhill helmet at an affordable price and they have achieved it hands down,” says Stephane Dion with pride.

The Sentinel Project was hatched in 2018, with TSG CEO Ruedi and apparel designer Jonas Janssen styling a fresh new DH specific MTB helmet.

Mountain bike adventurer Hannes Klausner tested the Sentinel over months of riding.

bigquotesThe new Sentinel is definitely an upgrade on all existing full-face models. It is super light, can be customised to fit a wide range of sizes better and with more hold, is super well ventilated and looks amazing. The Sentinel suited me from the first ride!Hannes Klausner (MTB Adventurer)

Helmet designer Stephane Dion was then brought in to bring their ideas to life. Stephane boasts 25 years of experience making premium helmets for power sports, including snowmobile, street and MX biking and even skydiving.

bigquotesFirst I had to immerse myself in the downhill bike world to see what the competition was up to and as TSG have Swiss German roots I wanted to create a style that was dynamic and fast looking but also expressed technicality and functionality typical of German and Swiss engineeringStephane Dion (Helmet Designer)

Weight and eco-credentials were also key to Stephane’s input, with the Sentinel hitting a target weight of 1160g. If a rider does go down the Sentinel is built to withstand the beating but when it does reach the end of its life its ABS and Polycarbonate shell can be simply recycled.

bigquotesEvery ounce saved helps keep the back wheel on the ground as the weight of the helmet sits on the highest point of the body and when hard braking on steep inclines it takes very little to flipStephane Dion (Helmet Designer)

 Looks hot, and when I say hot , I don't mean cool, I mean hot, like the temperature. Don't get me wrong , it looks cool, but just cool- cool...not temperature cool.
Are we cool?...Cool!

 Like that the shell can be recycled unlike most other helmets that have to get tossed into the garbage once their life is over.

 Funny because Sam Pilgrim and Tom Cardy, their sponsored riders, do all of their competitions in pisspots.
  • 1 0
 That's true, Sam mostly rides in our Evolution helmet. He prefers halfshell helmets. Other of our team riders wear full-face, such as Max Fredriksson, Hannes Klausner and many our national mountain bikers. That's a personal choice.

 Heavy, limited venting and no MIPS? Fail

 But the designer says they shaved some weight off to prevent you from endoing!

 Isnt a fixed visor a bad idea from a crash/safety perspective?
  • 1 0
 The visor is removable. But you can't change the position, it comes in a fixed position. We preferred this because this way the visor keeps stable in position and doesn't tend to move during riding.

 Does Transition not already make a Sentinel?
