Troy Lee Designs has become synonymous with high-end, premium helmets. Their full-face models have been sought after for years and can be seen on podiums all over the world. The A1 continues this legacy, quickly becoming one of the most popular all-mountain helmets on the market and it's easy to see why. An independent testing facility (Virginia Tech) even rated the A1 MIPS among the top 5 out of over 100 helmets they tested in 2019.

Who's this item for: This helmet is definitely geared more towards Enduro style riding it is also suitable for all-around trail riding.

Construction: Polycarbonate shell moulded with EPS liner. Extends downs the sides and back of the head for greater coverage.

Rotational liner: This is the MIPS version of this helmet.

MIPS - Multi-directional Impact Protection System - allows the helmet to rotate on your head slightly during heavy impacts. This aids in slowing down the rotation of the brain inside your skull, decreasing the chance of brain damage. See the link below to view the more affordable non-MIPS version.

Straps: The A1 uses adjustable cam-lock strap dividers so you'll be able to tweak them to get it just right to suit your head.

Retention System: There is a dial-type micro-adjust retention system with 3-point vertical positioning but TLD doesn't seem to have any fancy names for it.

Ventilation: Ventilation is taken care of with 8 inlet and 8 exhaust vents that are designed to pull the cool air in while ejecting the warm air out.

Padding: The comfort is second to none, thanks in part to a super soft, removable and washable, single piece liner that is made from anti-microbial moisture-wicking material.

Visor: The visor is adjustable and uses anodised aluminium hardware.

Weight: Approx 393 grams for the M/L version.

Pros: These helmets look great on everyone so you'll be styling it up on the trails. The luscious padding and the MIPS liner makes this a very comfortable and protective helmet.

Cons: Some kind of integrated GoPro mount would make this awesome helmet even more awesome.

All TLD A1 Helmets sold by Mountain Bikes Direct are Australian Standards Approved.

    Great Helmet, matte finish rubs off

    I purchased this hemet for christmas 2018 which is now 1 and a half years old. I have the classic black verson of this helmet (no longer on this website) it is the full black version with the slighty bronze logo. It is a matte finished helmet and part of it has rubbed off to reveal gloss, particularly under the front rim where it rests when placed down and those edges. very comfortable and everyting else is working great. Comes with a helmet bag that is very good and have been using days a week for the duration ive had it and the stitching has only come undone now (easily restitched). Havnt had to replace and of the velcro for the pads or the pads and i wear it twice a day 5 times a week, great mtb helmet.

    Sizing is perfect when purchasing blind online.

    Anyone wanting to use this helmet with oakley flight jackets, even with the shorter stems on its still rests on the ratchet at the back and is a bit of a faf. it will either sit ontop or wedge under but unnoticanle when riding

    TLD A1 helmet is great, fitting guide was spot on - very comfortable fit, mips protection, cool styling. And good ventilation. I would highly recommend the A1 to anyone looking for an openface lid.

    This is a very nice

    This is a very nice helmet. I use for my daily commute, the XC design gives a bit more protection than normal road helmets. The bright colours are great and get noticed. The A1 is lighter than the Bell Super 3 that was on my shortlist. I have had no issues with overheating the airflow is great.
