TROY LEE DESIGNS – D3 MIPS HELMET – REVIEW

The D3 MIPS from Troy Lee Designs is one of the best looking helmets on the market

More than 30 years ago Troy Lee began custom painting helmets and still to this very day a huge number of helmets are going under the custom spray gun at Troy Lee Designs HQ. Their line up of off the shelf helmets are on the wish list of racers around the world young and old and with the addition of MIPS safety technology TLD have raised the bar once again making one of the best looking helmets on the market also one of the safest. (MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, it is a revolutionary technology that lets the helmet slide relative to the head, adding more protection against rotational violence to the brain caused by angled impacts).
