Product Description

IXS Trail RS Helmet With the quot;Trail RS quot; iXS presents a new helmet that has been developed in cooperation with freeride legend Richie Schley. Its double in-mold construction keeps your head cool with 22 vents and offers extended rear coverage. Thanks to the Ergo Fit Ultra system the quot;Trail RS quot; offers a tight fit, and the visor comes with a quickrelease mechanism so it does not break in a crash. Available in four matte colours and weighing just 320 grams, the helmet is EN1078 and CPSC certified. iXS approached me three years ago to collaborate in a helmet concept and that would be something in between a downhill helmet and a cross country helmet. A helmet that has good coverage, is light weight and still super ventilated. That's where we came up with the Trail RS. I ride up, ride down - I kind of do everything. The ultimate deal now days is to have one set up and that would be an all-mountain or enduro set up. Protection is breathable and light weight and you can pe

Strengths:    Light, comfortable, good ventilation.

Weaknesses:    not crash worthy. no replacement pading

Bottom Line:   
I liked the thing until I crashed it. Just a normal out the front in soft dirt, the visor dug in and the helmet rolled around into my nose. The back adjuster broke and the helmet hit my nose breaking it. Maybe I should have had the S-M instead of the L-XL. I also tried to contact the maker before the crash to get new padding (i was willing to pay), but no reply. My buddy has a bell super, called to buy padding and they gave him some free!

Strengths:    stays in place, cool, comfy, forehead pad help keep sweat out of eyes

Weaknesses:    limited visor adjustability

Bottom Line:   
After looking at all the "enduro" helmets out there (Bell, Troy Lee, Giro, POC) what sold me on this lid was the continuous and somewhat thicker front forehead pad. I wanted something to catch all my sweat, not channel it into my eyes. Air circulation is good and is a cool running helmet. Fit is good. You can easily cinch down the headband via the round adjuster. Overall very nice helmet.

Strengths:    Light, ventilated, beautiful, slim form

Weaknesses:    If you have a "rounder" head, ypu might end up looking somewhere else.

Bottom Line:   
This helmet comes only in two shell sizes, S-M (54-58cms) and L/XL (58-63cms). I normally use M, so I went for the S/M first, but it have me headaches from pressure points on the sides of my forefront. So I sold it, got a L/M = the pressure point is solved, but it was huge! So ended up saling it. Perhaps IXS should have gone with a more traditional 3 shell sizing, instead of just 2.

Other than that.... awesome helmet.

My head gets hot. Catlike Leaf or iXS Trail RS? Or something else?

I'm trying to get something with more head coverage than my current helmet (Giro Rift) that's also well ventilated/reasonably cool on a hot day. My head gets crazy hot already and I'm concerned that more coverage=too much warmth. The catlike leaf or iXS Trail seem like good candidates - do folks ha ... Read More »

Does anyone know if attaching a trail-a-bike mount/bike to the stationary portion of a Reverb dropper post will be ok or will it result in damage? I'm guessing the answer is don't do it but I'd really like to use my new bike with my son versus my 18 year old rigid when I hit the gravel rail trails. ... Read More »
