Who's this item for: Awesome for any kid that rides trails all day.
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.
Pros: These helmets look great and the kids will love 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.
