TLD A1 - Gold Metal Flake Cyclops

Troy Lee Designs introduces their new All Mountain helmet. Troy Lee Designs is well known for their helmets across multiple categories and now they’ve got Trail riders covered as well. TLD typically add some flare to their helmets through various visual stimuli. What do you all think? Details inside from TLD.

Troy Lee Designs is proud to officially introduce the newest addition to our growing line of bicycle specific helmets, the A1.

With the freeride, downhill and BMX helmet market cornered, Troy Lee Designs decided it was time to venture into new territory. Three years of research and design later, the team has developed a top of the line helmet for the XC/Enduro, Trail, and All Mountain rider.

TLD A1 Launch

“Coming from an XC background I understand the importance of a vented helmet and since I’ve moved into Freeride, I only trust a helmet with lots of coverage. The A1 gives me that light, breathable design with out being concerned with safety” – Brandon Semenuk 2X FMB World Champion

“I first heard about the A1 project a year ago and have been eagerly awaiting it since. And the team at TLD did not disappoint. It fits like a glove, protects my dome better than any other trail lid, and looks as good as the rest of the Troy Lee helmet line. If I had to sum it up in one word? Dialed.” – Lars Sternberg, Transition Bikes/Enduro Racer


“I have come full circle with Troy Lee Designs, I had one of those sweet Edge helmets in the early 90’s, with a TLD sticker kit! I have been wanting a helmet to ride in that was more protective than all the other helmets on the market, which are just glorified road helmets with a visor. I think we nailed it with the A1. We catered to the heart of the market, which is that mid to big travel trail rider, enduro rider, or even cross country rider, with a helmet that is extremely safe, elegant, stylish, light and built to last” – Craig “Stikman” Glaspell, Troy Lee Designs Sports Marketing
