Trigger AM Helmet

With IXS's background in motosports, we would be lying if we said we weren't surprised with the company's prowess in the protection department, and the Trigger AM Helmet is no exception. It uses double-inmold construction to elevate impact absorption, and a burly polycarbonate shell that takes the brunt of hits — but the tech far from ends there. The Trigger AM packs in a unique ErgoFit Ultra retention system that enables you to adjust your fit both vertically and horizontally, accommodating more head shapes and sizes, while maintaining comfort by avoiding pressure points. An adjustable visor offers coverage from harsh sunny days, but can be moved upwards in three different positions to accommodate goggles on dusty enduro days. The helmet is finished off with a Fidlock magnetic fastener that combines the quick user-friendly benefits with a magnetic system with the reliability of a mechanical system for a fast and reliable closure.

  • An all-mountain helmet with moto-backed technology

  • Polycarbonate shell takes the sting out of knocks
  • Adjustable visor accommodates goggles

Deal + Review! I got 28% off this helmet ( $42.00 hefty savings! ) deal stacking various methods I use. It's hard to get deals on a lot of brand MTB equipment because they don't allow it. Here are the 3 methods I used. 1- 15% off Signing up for their mailing list. 2- Rakuten browser rebates - 8% ( it was double rebate week , usually 4%) Which you can get here! --> https://www.rakuten.com/r/GCEMPO 3- My Chase card had 5% Cash back checking out through paypal which backcountry kindly offers! I purchased the Receda helmet. The color received is nothing like the color pictured. However this didn't bother me, it actually worked in favor because it's almost identical to my Commencal Heritage Green DJ! The helmet is extremely comfortable and the back adjustable dial is super nice!! I love it. I'm coming from a Fox helmet i've had for 3 yrs and this is WAY more comfortable and the airflow is super nice! We ride in Florida so heat and breathability is more of a concern than keeping warm. My Next purchase will be the Full Face IXS Trigger!! Super stoked on this helmet it's rad and comfortable!

It's a keeper

True to size

I'll be honest. I'm vain. I bought this helmet primarily because I like the design, second for functionality. The Trigger AM utilizes sharp design lines and forgoes the "swoopy" look which seems so hard to avoid these days. After a summer of riding, I now love the function as much as the design. It's extremely lightweight, extremely well vented, and offers as good of coverage as any all-mountain helmet. My head is 56.5 cm, and according to the size chart I should fit the S/M size. I was nervous about being at the edge of the size range but I didn't need to worry. The S/M feels great on my head. Even during a super hard ride with my blood pressure pumping, I felt no tightness around my temples or anywhere else. Love the Fidlock and cradle adjustment to customize the fit. The foam padding absorbs sweat until you take a break and squeeze it out. It's so good I bought the Trigger Full Face as well, which is equally impressive.

Perfect Trail Helmet

S/M

After trying many half shell trail/enduro helmets I've finally found the right one for me. Lightweight, comfortable, and the S/M size fits me better than any other brand (I have approx. 56cm circumference). The helmet breathes well so it's been great for warm days and extended climbs. Multiple visor positions make it easy to ride with goggle if that's your thing. I crashed fairly hard in this and it saved my head. Visor broke, but the rest of the helmet still looked perfect. I ended up buying a new one to be safe.
