Cam Zink’s Custom TLD D3 Prototype and New Sprint Pants

10/16/2013 : sicklines

Troy Lee Designs sent over some details on Zink’s new helmet that he was running at the Red Bull Rampage. Check it out inside as well as Zink’s massive backflip off of the Oakley sender.

The 2013 Red Bull Rampage was going well and TLD’s Cam Zink had some success again. Taking 3rd place overall and best trick.

Custom D3 - EPS added

I wanted to share some images of his helmet that he wore during the death defying leap, a prototype Troy Lee Designs D3 helmet, with an additional EPS layer applied to the exterior of the helmet. Troy has had this idea brewing for a while, but decided to mock something up for Zink, because he knew Zink would be trying something huge. Strategically placed layers of EPS were applied to the common impact areas that would absorb impact to the head. Thankfully Cam did not fully ‘test’ the helmet in competition, but in our testing before the event it showed dramatic increase in impact absorbtion. We plan on continuing the development of this application to further protect the worlds fastest racers and gnarliest freeriders!
