Troy Lee Designs A1 Drone Helmet
Technical beauty and design were on the minds of the designers at Troy Lee Designs when producing the A1 helmet. Troy Lee has not had an all mountain bike helmet in years and felt it was time to get back to the roots of where it all started. The A1's aggressive lines and superior venting make it a truly unique helmet in today's mountain helmet world.
Sixteen large vents coupled with a specially designed air channeling visor, surrounded by dynamic graphics, keep your noggin cool in more ways than one. The sleek speed shape of the A1 was developed to suit all types of road or off-road cycling. Whether you are an all mountain dirt junkie, or a cross country racer, the A1 was developed for you and the love of your sport.
The A1 is a great helmet. It offers more protection than my old xc type half-shell, particularly on the back of the head. It vents well. The fit is easy to dial in because of multiple adjustment points in the liner. The ratcheting backstrap also makes it convenient to snug up or loosen the helmet ensuring a great fit. The helmet is a little low in the forehead area, so when I ride with goggles, the helmet has a tendency to push the goggles down my nose. It's more of a nuisance than anything because it feels odd, but doesn't seem to effect my vision. Riding with glasses solves this. Overall, a great helmet. You won't be disappointed.
