Review: Troy Lee Designs Stage Helmet
@hipposauce: Reflecting back on the first day all of us at the office had a bunch of rideable proto's and we went up to Skypark (our local bike park in arrowhead) and we rode all day with Troy and the crew, was awesome to be fully protected, but chatting up on the uphills and then sending it on the downhills, hearing all of us hollering. Good times-Peaty wanted us to put a beer holder on the STAGE, but, didnt fit.

Also, to Paul's comment about "The noise from the wind rushing over my ears created the illusion of speed, like an open face. I suspect that is one reason why I feel so safe in a traditional full face", this was by design. In the early testing days, we had a set criteria of features, one is being able to have the same acoustics of an open face, being able to hear your friends on a longer ride, conversing, aka-being able to hear everything. Once we got the helmet on more riders, dealers, customers, they really like this feature, to hear, and give a feeling like an open face.

Review: Troy Lee Designs Stage Helmet
Whew, just made it through the comments! Always a wild ride in here, but we appreciate all the comments. As to Paul's comments on this type of helmet vs a full on DH helmet; We have been working on this helmet for years, starting out with detachable types, but the weight penalty AND what the heck are we doing with that chinbar when removed?, we tried a slimmer version of D3, and numerous other prototypes. We did not want to blur the lines between our open face trail lids (A1 and A2) and our World Cup winning/BMX Olympic winning D3 series of helmets (or future D series helmets), we wanted clear separation between them all, no confusion. So the final stage prototype starting becoming what it is today, a full face helmet for trail riding, with superior ventilation and low weight, but also meeting the most popular standards (ASTM F1952 being the one most customers requested) and that took a lot of testing in the lab, numerous prototypes, to find the sweet spot in testing....we made it for the days you are shuttling, or even a epic ride that will have a long climb with a rowdy DH on your trail bikes, or for the racers that were charging hard all day at EWS was the benchmark and we had Ropelato testing it early on tweaking and tuning along the way. We did not envision anyone riding their DH bike with Boxxers on it, with a Stage helmet. Purpose built for the trail.

proframe and superDH are not that far away in Oz. Exchange rate is savage for all.
