Troy Lee Designs D4 Carbon Stealth HelmetTroy Lee Designs have yet again pushed the boundaries of mountain bike protection with their superb D4 Carbon Stealth Helmet. Sleek TLD style, outstanding comfort and the inclusion of the very latest impact-absorbing technologies create a helmet with unrivalled performance on the trail. If you’re charging downhill, ripping up gnarly trails and going big off the biggest booters then things won’t always go smoothly or to plan. For those times when you hit the ground after casing the landing, push grip too far or get your line wrong the D4 Carbon Stealth Helmet ensures you can get up, dust yourself off and keep riding. It starts with the TeXtreme® Spread tow carbon fibre shell, giving the D4 incredible strength while keeping weight to the minimum. This shell covers the EPS foam shock-absorbing core – if you hit your head it’s this core that will absorb the forces and protect your head from the impact. To boost strength and durability Troy Lee also uses In-mould polycarbonate around vent openings and exposed EPS, making this a lid you can use day after day without fear. Lastly, MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) provides excellent brain-injury prevention – more on that below.Ventilation is also fabulously realised. The outer vents bring in fresh, cooling air and this is allowed to circulate easily thanks to carefully designed channels and integration with the headliner. It’s like a turbo-charger for your head. Speaking of the liner, this is the XT2 washable design. Lesser helmets will use standard foam liners which after continued use can soon start to feel uncomfortable and even itchy. Not the XT2. This anti-bacterial liner ensures no nasty odours or itchiness, and being washable you’ll be able to keep it fresh for every ride. Fresh, lightweight and cool mountain biking is now here for you to enjoy, even in a fully-featured full-face helmet.What is MIPS?Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a proven system that reduces the rotational forces on the brain when you’re involved in a crash. The forces are absorbed and redirected to prevent them from being transmitted to the brain. MIPS is a Brain Protection SystemRotational motion can cause brain injuriesThe low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impactMIPS adds protectionFeatures:TeXtreme® Spread tow carbon fibre shellFeaturing MIPS® Brain Protection System – a helmet integrated, low friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the headVentilation channels work in unison with the headliner to promote airflow through the helmetLightweight titanium D-rings and hardwareCollarbone suspension systemInnovative break-away visor screws help reduce the likelihood snagging during a crashQuick Release XT2 3D cheek pads and X-Static/ XT2 washable liner create an optimized fitPlush helmet bag included1000 gramsCPSC 1203, EN1078, ASTM F1952 – DH, ASTM 2032 – BMXBuy Troy Lee Designs from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.
