Hit the trails.

Full-faced helmets have their place on rowdy lift laps and jumps, but some days aren't as extreme, so it's good to have a Troy Lee Designs A2 MIPS Helmet waiting in the wings. Building on a well-earned reputation for hard-hitting motocross and gravity protection, the A2 transitions protection to lighter duty trails with massive venting, ample coverage, and MIPS technology to keep you cool under duress.

With 25% more ventilation than that found on TLD's venerable A1 helmet, the A2 MIPS promotes cooling airflow and encourages constant air movement across your dome. A removable, soft and plushy X-Static Pure Silver liner sits comfortably against your head, fending off the stink produced by bacteria and drying quickly to keep you cool. Not to ignore fit, the A2 MIPS helmet incorporates a three-position adjustable retention system for a custom, easily dialed fit.

  • A lightweight helmet built for all-day trails
  • MIPS technology reduces rotational force in certain crashes
  • EPS and EPP foam mix absorbs low and high speed impact
  • Extended coverage at back and temples increases protection area
  • Large vents promote cooling airflow
  • Highly adjustable retention system dials in the fit
  • Visor fends off branches and glaring sun

TLD does it again

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Still making the best looking Enduro lids on the market and even more comfortable than the A1. Love the features on this stylish helmet like the adjustable visor that uses nice anodized hardware to stay where you want it. Their gear is always stylish and well made. Their stuff stays tough and doesn’t get ratty.

A little disappointed

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

All the excellent reviews had me pumped for this helmet. The good: colors and graphic design are great!

The not so good: I was looking froward to getting a sort of enduro helmet with a little extra coverage but I find that this sits really high on my head. For example the gap between my ears and the bottom of helmet is the same size as that of my 7 year old 15$ specialized helmet with that really cross country look. First, this leaves gaps that, though perhaps irrational, make me less confident and second, doesn't look as cool (if you pick a helmet that has 'designs' in the name it has to look cool) It also doesn't go as low as I'd like on the back of my head. I find that it isn't all that comfortable around the top of my head toward the back (you know the kinda flat spot where some men start to bald) it just feels a little spacy there.

I tried on a Giro (after I bought this) and found that it sat lower all round (ears and back of head) thus providing more protection and it also just felt better including the top/back of head area which just a hug.

I have dirtied it up a bit and so I'll stick with it. I'm sure it'll save me if needed, just a little disappointed with the look, coverage, and comfort after spending what this thing costs.

Great stylish helmet!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought as a present for my best friend & she loves it! Super comfortable, well vented for hot days, super stylish!

    Great light weight helmet.

      This is a very lightweight and thin feeling helmet! When on your head the helmet has a nice fit! It does have a nice adjuster in the back where you can spin it and allow it to fit better.

      Troy lee rocks!

      Awesome helmet, super comfortable and true to size. Exceptional well vented and adjustable!

      Great helmet with MIPS!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I am often in between a medium and small in bike helmets with a 56 cm head circumference. I chose the small (54-56cm) helmet and it has worked out great. I can still dial it in for a snug fit. The ventilation on this helmet is good, it's feather light, comfortable during long rides, and has a great low profile look(for a bike helmet). The only issue I could find is that the visor is not easy to adjust, otherwise, it's superb. The A2 is a bit on the higher end of helmet pricing, however, with the added MIPS protection, good ventilation and not so bulky style this helmet is a great choice.

      Great helmet with MIPS!

      Best fit for my head shape

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Unlike Smith helmets don't cup my head very well (they seem to be more shallow), Troy Lee Designs fits perfect. I love the redesign of the A2 which fits sunglasses easier under the cap.

      Protect your Brain!!!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      After getting a concussion, I did a lot of research and purchased this helmet. I think it is the best helmet for the brain and skull. It's the only one I could find that has dual density foam, which helps absorb energy. It also has MIPS which is good for rotational forces. It is lighter than the 6D and looks great. I am going to purchase the same helmet for my kids.

      Another Great helmet from Troy Lee!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: XL

      I've been wearing TLD helmets for years, and while fit is a very personal thing I find that there helmets fit my head shape the best.
      I was previously wearing a TLD A1, which I really like and it saved me big time in an over the bars crash.
      Since replacing it with this, I have been nothing but impressed. The A2 does everything the A1 does, just better. I find that it breathes it significantly better, and you can see that just by looking at it. It's filled with large vents. That combined with exceptional coverage for a trail helmet make it the best helmet out there for.

      Great Helmet

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had a couple of different helmets over the years and this is my favorite. Its a great fit. looks good, feels good.

      Looks great, but didn't work for me.

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      I've got a wierd melon. At 23 inches I'm on the big end of a medium and the small end of a large. With a sweat band the medium is too small, but the large looks like I should be cast on spaceballs. Ended up returning it.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great Lightweight helmet with a good fit. Looks clean and protects your dome, not much more Id want from a helmet.

      Amazing Helmet

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is by far the best helmet I've ever used. If you like the A1 then you will love this helmet. Same great fit with awesome venting and style. Tons of color options to choose from too. Hard to beat!

      I love my A2

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I was reading a lot of reviews on MTB helmet and Troy Lee A2 came up on the top. I have to say I love this helmet, it’s worth it.

      Looks Awesome

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Troy Lee always looks awesome and works great. This helmet is no different. It does have some adjustments on the back to dial in the size and chin straps. Has mips and feels great. I would recommend this helmet to anyone who bikes and is looking for safety and style.

      Excellent Helmet

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is the best MTB helmet I have ever's the third one I've bought in the last four years. Great quality. Very lightweight and adjustable. I'm really glad I decided on the A2.
