I don't really get it when companies say stuff like "the helmet is intended for trail and **enduro** use with TLD recommending one of their DH specific helmets for downhilling and bike park riding." What's happening on your trail and "enduro" (?) rides that's so much safer than what you do in the bike park? I've ridden a LOT of bike parks, and typically the trails are build to a higher standard of safety and forgiveness than a similarly rated trial outside the bike park. Moreover, why would you want a less-safe helmet when you are between the tape, gassed, and breathing out your eyeballs on a long enduro stage? Aren't you more likely to make a mistake then compared to when you are fresh off the chairlift? To me, these statements are drivel. Say it how it really is: This helmet passes XYZ safety standards and is excellent for the weight, but other products we offer are safer (read: this helmet is less safe than others).
