New Toys: Troy Lee Designs A1 helmet

New enduro lid from the iconic Californian masters of cool.

The A1 from Troy Lee Designs is easily one of the most anticipated half-shell helmets ever. The Californian company's Edge helmet was an early hardcore favourite and the new model does offer more than a visual nod to it. 

Aimed at tackling enduro and all mountain duties, the A1 offers extended coverage at the rear and to the sides. The internal cradle is also adjustable to allow you to tweak positioning to best accommodate your chosen eyeware. 

A total of 16 vents help channel cool air through the helmet, a moto-inspired adjustable peak adds to the looks and a microbial, sweat-wicking liner keeps things comfortable.  

The A1 will be available in six colours. More info available at Troy Lee Designs.
