Submitted by Pedro a Downhiller from Spocompton, WA

Date Reviewed: May 11, 2002

Strengths:    Thick hardshell. Old school looks are groovin. Pretty indestructible. Troy Lee. I got it for free. Yah woo!

Weaknesses:    Hot,but its a full face, what can you expect? My chin sticks out the bottom sometimes, but I haven't hit it on anything. A little innovation and you can have it fitting and feeling better. I cannablized an old helmet and removed the roc-loc from the back and all the sweat-absorbing velco pads. I swapped em in, and did some work with the webbing, and now the thing sticks on my bony head really well.

Bottom Line:   
Groovin helmet, classic look, gives you more balls. If you can find one, get it. If it is free, then cry and rejoice.

Strengths:    I am reviewing the TL EDGE, not the gay useless one with the full-face attachment but the 1/2 coverage one that came out in 1994-5.
Excellent Protection for the Noggin.

Some what heavy, ventilation is lacking.
They stopped making this rad helmet.


Bottom Line:

Submitted by Jimm a Cross Country Rider from SoCal

Date Reviewed: July 23, 2001

Strengths:    Solid; great fit; decent ventilation; adjustable visor; good looks; excellent protection.

Weaknesses:    Heavy. Virtually nothing to absorb sweat.

Bottom Line:   
Even though this helmet does not have any type of adjustment, it fits GREAT! It stays snug even after several hours of sweating. Didn't slip-n-slide. It does not have the huge vents found on most modern helmets -- nor does it provide the opportunity for tree branches to jab ya in da head. The smallish vents provide better cooling than expected. The adjustable visor actually ahhhh...adjusts; simple and secure. The pads are easily replaced. Provides excellent coverage and protection. Old school looks remain cool. Great alternative to high priced big hole helmets.
