    Details

    More coverage, more protection.

    Troy Lee Designs doesn’t mess around with gimmicky technologies when it comes to protecting your head — they cover up what can get hurt, carve away spots for air to get through, and add an adjustment system to keep it all tight to your head. The result? The new A-1 Helmet. With a polycarbonate shell over EPS foam, the A-1 will take a beating, even if you hope it never has to. Troy Lee added 16 distinct vents to move air into, over, and out of the helmet, and there’s a synthetic liner with CoolMax pads to assist in moisture management.

    • Multi-position cams for optimal fit
    • Fuller-coverage helmet
    • 16 big vents for airflow
    • Item #TLD0273

    Great helmet, great company

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love the helmet, looks great and super comfortable. After a year the liner was starting to show some wear and they didn't have replacements in stock - contacted TLD and they are shipping me a new one at no charge. Wish I got that level of customer service from all companies!

    I'll keep it around

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    The pad set on this helmet is probably the best out there. It's soft, thick, and doesn't flatten out immediately. Fit is superb and, for me, it doesn't have any odd pressure points. The micro-adjust dial retention system allows you to get the perfect fit in seconds.



    The straps could use some work. It's almost as if there are too many adjustment options to the point that finding the perfect position becomes quite the task. The straps in the buckle seem to come loose quite frequently, too, unless you keep it too tight around your chin to where it's forced to stay in place.



    Overall, it's a solid helmet with features I would expect at this price point.

    So comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    From the first moment I tried this helmet on I was in love with the fit. It looks good, and wicks sweat away decently. I haven't needed it for protection yet, but I am sure it would do its job in the event of a crash.

    So comfortable

    Love This Helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There's a reason you see so many of these on the trail; it's a comfortable, well-designed helmet and one of the best looking on the market. The A-1 offers plenty of coverage, protecting the side and rear of your noggin, while still maintaining a low profile so you don't look like a mushroom. The cinch system is spot-on, using a small dial that can be easily adjusted with one hand while riding. You can get this thing snug. This is not the most ventilated helmet I've ever owned, even in white I found myself sweating more than in my previous 661 Recon. May it's the increased coverage the A-1 provides, but just something to be aware of.

    Thank you troy lee!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    What can i say this is the best helmet on the market. You dont believe me look below. 15 feet to my head and i walked away with just a bruised shoulder. Every other helmet i have tried just doesn't fit as well as this one. Its coverage is perfect and the protection is unmatched. I also really enjoy the 16 vents as they do a great job keeping you cool on the trail. it also weighs nothing so if you arent getting this helmet you are missing out. The real question is if you want to go MIPS or non MIPS. If you have any questions or need help with sizing reach out anytime!!

    Thank you troy lee!

    It's the A1, nothing more to say

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    It's the A1, what else can I say? It's one of the best trail helmets on the market, tired and true for the past several years. Plenty of cool colors to choose from. The padding and shape of the helmet makes it very comfortable. It's lightweight and well-ventilated. You really can't go wrong with this helmet considering others cost twice as much or more.

    The Most Comfortable Helmet Ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M/L

    This is the most comfortable half shell ever. Apart from feeling like a ball cap, it breathes great, and has the rad troy lee styling. Some of the colors are a little over the top, but you can get the drone edition. I have also crashed really bad, and I am still here, so more evidence that it rocks.

    Stellar Half Shell

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: M/L

    Lets face it , half shells can look and feel a bit terrible. The Troy Lee A1 however does not disappoint. Not only in my opinion does it look great but it also performs incredible.

    It is very comfortable and does not have any pressure points or uncomfortable spots at all. Worth every penny.

    I have not found this helmet unusually warm at all.

    please email me at rlogan@backcountry.com for any additional insight.

    Great helmet

      Maybe it's because I've used the same helmet for the last 5 years, but this helmet is a huge upgrade. The fit is super snug yet comfortable. Easily can adjust to your head size. Very breathable and light. Also looks good.

      Great fit, super light!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The A1 Helmet has a great fit, is super light and has a great ventilation. Good compatibility with goggles also which is key for me..The helmet adjustments are easy to use and simple enough..wearing the helmet out on long rides is no issue, can wear it all day..

      Very happy with this purchase.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This helmet fits true to size. It is very light weight and comfortable. The adjustable head band keeps the helmet in place while riding. So far, I've only worn the helmet in cooler temperatures, 16˚F - 55˚F, and didn't notice my head being either too cold or too warm..... just comfortable. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

      Hi! Is the visor adjustable? Does it move up & down or is it set in one position? Thanks!

      My head measures about 23 inches, so sort of in between M/L and XL/XXL.. should I go with the M/L? I dont want it bouncing around but I also obviously don't want it too small

      Hi Ben,



      I would always error on the small side with something like this. Better off having the helmet all the way opened up as opposed to totally cranked down. If the size you decide to go with doesn't work, let me know and I can help you out with an exchange. Feel free to reach out with any other questions. - Matthew Pizza - Expert Gearhead

      I have a 22 inch/57cm head should I get a small or a medium?
      Thanks

      Wife and kids got me the A-1 for Father's Day. They ordered the xl/xxl and my head seems to be swimming in it. My head measures an all most perfect 23". Should I return it for a M/L

      love this helmet. does this A1 matte version come with the protective/storage bag like the other troy lee helmets?

      My head measures just over 23 inches. I'm...

      My head measures just over 23 inches. I'm afraid if it runs small it won't fit. So how true is the sizing? Also how loosely should I be holding the tape measure?

      Hi YETIMAN,



      Yes, the Gold Flake is available as our option 'Gold.' I apologize that the photo is not showing up correctly on the site. It should look as TLD has it on their website. If you have any other questions feel free to let me know, I have the helmet myself as shown by my review below.
