Introducing the limited edition TLD Born From Paint A3 helmet. Designed and painted at TLD's HQ in Corona California, these helmets show off TLD's commitment to custom paint and design.

Born From Paint helmets are strictly limited edition and won't hang around for long!

The A3 provides the deepest coverage of any of TLD's open face helmets and utilises a combination EPS/EPP liner for the best possible protection against both high and low-speed impacts. 16 vents with optimised channelling maximise the airflow, and the Sweatglide system helps to prevent sweat from getting in your eyes and on your lenses when things are heating up on the trail.


The A3 is a very precise fitting helmet, and it is vital that you measure your head to get the sizing right before ordering. Your size may be different compared to other helmets (even the A1 and A2) so don't rely on what size your last helmet was.

The helmet ships with 2 different sized headliners to help you fine-tune the fit. A 6mm liner comes preinstalled and the spare 12mm liner has thicker, denser foam for a tighter fit. They also have handy trim marks printed on them to help you relieve any pressure points or enhance the airflow even further.

Check out this video for some instructions on how to customise the comfort liner to suit your head.

    Stylish looking helmet that looks fast whilst stationary.

    I bought this helmet as a replacement for another that got dented when I suffered a crash and had the bike land on top of it. The A3 arrived quickly in a box that more than accommodated the helmet. The A3 was comfortable from the get go, and didn't have any obvious pinch or pressure points. I don't want to find out if this A3 will hold up to an ad hoc dirt nap or a bike landing on top of it, but I'm sure it will be plenty sufficient to hold up the rigors of mountain biking.

    The cat also approved of the helmet, which is an important thing.
