Seaotter was pretty fun this year, I changed it up and rode the MTB tour. The helmet i was using was a middle/lower range giro XC helmet that i got on sale on line. The padding on the inside wasn’t the best but since i dont ride my mtb all the time i just lived with it. You can always tell the difference between the price of a 40$ piece of kit and a 140$ piece of kit and the trailfox it a fine example of that.
This helmet was just better than any trail/xc helmet I’ve worn, everything was just nicer and more comfortable and well built. The padding is nice and thick and comes with replacement pieces, it fit snug with a adjustment dial on back to get that custom fit locked in. The matte black color goes with any bike. The chin strap was easily adjustable and comfortable and the removable visor was and and big but not too big…
This is TSG’s top of the line enduro/trial helmet, its equipped with a MIPS liner. The MIPS liner is designed to reduce the amount of rotational force that may be transferred to the rider’s brain in certain oblique impacts. Which is quite helpful in MTB riding. The Large vents make this a very cool helmet to ride in too.
If your in the market for a really nice well fitting enduro helmet put the TSG Trailfox on your list. Check out TSG’s site for a full spec sheet. Thanks again to Buddy from TSG for sending me out this rad helmet and also some knee and elbow pads that ill be reviewing in a different post. I’ve been logging some miles in this kit and i can’t seem to find and complaints its a pretty sweet helmet. I beat the brakes off the a santa cruz hightower during demo day wearing a this gear and it all worked great! Look for a long term review on the helmet and a first review on the elbow and knee pads
