Prototype Troy Lee D3 Carbon

Date Oct 15, 2013

Troy Lee Designs just sent over some shots of a prototype D3 lid that Cam Zink was wearing at Rampage. While the basic shape of the D3 remains, TLD has added material to the outside in specific areas. From TLD:

“Zink was wearing a prototype Troy Lee Designs D3 helmet with an additional EPS layer applied to the exterior of the helmet. Troy has had this idea brewing for a while, but decided to mock something up for Zink, because he knew Zink would be trying something huge. Strategically placed layers of EPS were applied to the common impact areas that would absorb impact to the head.

Thankfully Cam did not fully ‘test’ the helmet in competition, but in our testing before the event it showed dramatic increase in impact absorbtion. We plan on continuing the development of this application to further protect the worlds fastest racers and gnarliest freeriders!”

Has this been wind tunnel tested?

With this helmet you can backflip a 50 foot stepdown. Try it!

More protection is good… would you wear it?
