Troy Lee Designs has become synonymous with high-end, premium helmets. Their full-face models have been sought after for years and can be seen on podiums all over the world. The A1 continues this legacy, quickly becoming one of the most popular all-mountain helmets on the market and it's easy to see why. An independent testing facility (Virginia Tech) even rated the A1 MIPS among the top 5 out of over 100 helmets they tested in 2019.  

Who's this item for: This helmet is definitely geared more towards Enduro style riding it is also suitable for all-around trail riding. 

Construction: Polycarbonate shell moulded with EPS liner. Extends downs the sides and back of the head for greater coverage. 

Rotational liner: This is the MIPS version of this helmet. 

MIPS - Multi-directional Impact Protection System - allows the helmet to rotate on your head slightly during heavy impacts. This aids in slowing down the rotation of the brain inside your skull, decreasing the chance of brain damage. See the link below to view the more affordable non-MIPS version. 

Straps: The A1 uses adjustable cam-lock strap dividers so you'll be able to tweak them to get it just right to suit your head.

Retention System: There is a dial-type micro-adjust retention system with 3-point vertical positioning but TLD doesn't seem to have any fancy names for it.

Ventilation: Ventilation is taken care of with 8 inlet and 8 exhaust vents that are designed to pull the cool air in while ejecting the warm air out.

Padding: The comfort is second to none, thanks in part to a super soft, removable and washable, single piece liner that is made from anti-microbial moisture-wicking material.

Visor: The visor is adjustable and uses anodised aluminium hardware.

Weight: Approx 393 grams for the M/L version.

Pros: These helmets look great on everyone so you'll be styling it up on the trails. The luscious padding and the MIPS liner makes this a very comfortable and protective helmet.

Cons: Some kind of integrated GoPro mount would make this awesome helmet even more awesome. 

All TLD A1 Helmets sold by Mountain Bikes Direct are Australian Standards Approved.
