2018 A1 Drone Helmet
Ratings & Reviews
Love this helmet! Fits well, vents well and looks great. Luckily, have not had to test it in a crash... TLD has the best colors/finishes!
I had the 2015 version of the drone a1 helmet and it was incredible. It was by far the most comfortable helmet that fit my weird shaped head. I would give it a 5 star except when i wore it, it sat a bit high on my head. Dont know if thats the helmet or its just my head, but other than that i would definitely recommend this helmet
^^^ Super Comfortable and Cool ^^^
I purchased this helmet to have more coverage while riding in Sedona. It fits amazing well and does not leave marks on your forehead. Surprising cool while riding but it does trap the sweat if not wearing a headband.
Only Helmet you need...
by Richard Lui
One of the best bike helmets within the industry. Fit to size is perfect with the retention system. For those that need to earn your turns #earnyourturns, its offers enough intake and exhaust vents to keep you cool on those summer days in the mountains. Its stylish even for XC riders too. Riding Mount Fromme, Seymour, Cypress, Whister Bike Park and Coastal Gravity Park.
<br>The only helmet you need from All Mountain to Enduro. Anything DH get a Troy Lee D3.
<br>The only miss is having a gopro attachment but the sticky curve works fine on the front of the top of the helmet. If you're looking for more stability than you can lift your visor a little higher and mount a gopro sticky there as well.
<br>Lots of colour choices to choose from.
Quality helmet and sick paint job.
Very comfortable but doesn't breathe as well as I would have liked. Size adjustment is easy and works flawlessly. I had trouble getting the chin strap adjusted comfortly.
Destroys the competition!
by Shandon Gubler
I have had a number of helmets ranging from Bell, Specialized, 616, Giro, etc and non of them come close to what Troy Lee offers. It has great protection and it doesn't make me look like uncle Bernie. This helmet gives me the confidence to really hit the trails hard and charge.
Above the Rest! Best of the Best!
by Cayden MacCachren
What can I say? I've worn multiple other hemets including a Super 2R, 6D and a couple others but I keep coming back to my A1. It weighs nothing, the strap adjusting is very user friendly and the airflow is above the best! Get this helmet if your thinking about it!
Chrome for your dome
The A1 helmet is awesome! Great fit, superb quality and excellent ventilation. Don't know how well it holds up in a crash (thankfully) but I have no doubts that it will protect me very well. Also one of the best looking helmets out there!
Hope you send me a new 1 ð¤email@example.com
On this helmet styles i like the most . make fits right on me padding insides are smooth on head feelin . I was say i recommend it you too buy 1
The A1 is #1....by far!
I have several helmets for biking but my TLD A1 is my "go to" helmet for aggressive trail riding or enduro. It's very light, breatheable, and the full wrap around the back of the neck provide maximum protection and give me the confidence to let it all hang out.
The best helmet in its class
When I put the A-1 on it felt so light and comfortable. Love it and I might pick up another.
Best skid lid money can buy
by M. Taylor
I've had the A1 going on 2 years now and it's a fantastic piece of equipment. The ratchet tightening system works great and is easy to use on the fly. Venting is perfect and I've never had a problem over heating. The helmet has several height settings for a customized fit and a washable head liner. I would definitely recommend the A1 to anyone wanting a premium mountain bike helmet, spend the money your dome is worth it.
The most comfortable MTB helmet on earth. Liking the new color combos too... Might need a new one soon.
by Shaun Langham
Being a guy with a LARGE head, I was very happy to put this helmet on. It fits me perfect and doesn't make my head sweat. I've tried several MTB helmets, but have never put one on that fits this good. Even your hats fit my watermelon head. ðð»
Most comfortable helmet
This is by far the most comfortable helmet I have ever had. You feel extremely protected in it as well which I did not get from 661 or Fox halfshells. Only complaint it that it can get very hot. Perfect half shell for aggressive trail riding but not for XC or hot summer day pedals.
by Pedro Gonçalves
Perfect fit and venting. Not heavy.<br>Adjusting at the back is pretty simple and effective.<br>Works pretty well with normal glasses and goggles.
Great overall helmet but I had some issues.
I purchased my A1 helmet directly from Troy Lee Designs. I ordered the Blue and black A1 helmet and it looked great. The fit was good for my head. The adjustments to get it snug and secure where easy to use. I've had my A1 for more than six months now and its going strong. There are plenty of vents to keep my head cool on hot riding days. The padding feels sufficient and not to overly bluntly or too thin. <br>The Cons: First off, there is not a good place to mount GoPro mounts. The curves of the helmet make it difficult. Next, the paint swore after about 2 months of use when I tried to clean it. I used mild dish soap to clean it with a sponge. For some reason it made it look like the clear coat of the finish was rubbing off but only in one big spot by the visor. I didn't contact Troy Lee because I assume that kind of thing is not covered after so long.<br>I really enjoy the A1. It's proven to be light, well vented and easy to adjust. All the main things I look for.
After months of trying different helmets that my 4 yr old wouldn't keep on her head, we found a winner. This helmet is great! Very light and comfortable. She has a larger head so the xs adult fits her.
by Evan Swan
High Quality Helmet. Fits good and looks great. Lots of air can pass thru.
Love my A1 helmet! Lots of coverage and Airflow! Great retention system! I can dial in the fit and ride with the chin strap pretty loose with out the helmet moving around. Most comfortable helmet I've worn on a bike!
Most comfortable helmet I've ever owned. Grips your head, doesn't flop around. Easy to clean padding...
This helmet is by far the best one I've had on my head! I'd give it 10 stars if I could.<br><br>It's comfortable, fits perfectly and easy to adjust. There's a nice color selection, too!<br><br>I'd recommend this helmet to anyone looking for the most comfortable and safest helmet out there. I even have two myself!
Best open face on the market
Easily the most comfortable open-face mountain bike helmet I have worn. Thankfully I haven't had to test the protection qualities so far, but feels extremely well built and the extra coverage at the back is nice, and has easily survived kicking around in my gear bag for the last 6 months. Highly recommended!
Great Trail Riding Helmet
I have the A1 Drone and this is the best helmet i have had. The size is true and doesn't move around at all while riding. It is very breathable and the foam has held up very well over many rides.
Sleek. Cool. Fresh.
by Austen Selk
Another terrific product by the innovators at Troy Lee Designs. Good fit no matter the size, keeping you cool both going up and going down. Works excellently with both glasses and googles with style for days.
