Troy Lee Designs spent nearly three years crafting its most recent entry into the half-lid all-mountain/enduro market, and it looks as if it’s been well worth the wait.
The TLD A1 features full coverage and an aggressive style, making it a worthy contender for today’s emerging crop of enduro racers and all-mountain riders. Sixteen large vents coupled with a specially designed air-channeling visor are designed to keep the rider cool, while a deep rear profile provides more coverage than a traditional trail helmet.
TLD has a history in motorcycle racing, and it shows. In addition to the aggressive lines, the company has applied a paint/graphics process used in moto helmets—very unconventional to bicycle helmets—along with anodized hardware to create a unique and custom moto-inspired look.
Whether you are an elite enduro athlete or an after-work ripper, the long-awaited A1 was developed for you and the love of your sport.
