You've never been able to resist a big send, whether it's a good idea at the time or not. From steeps lined with babyhead boulders to jumps on your local resort's brand new flow trail, trust the Troy Lee Designs D3 Composite Helmet to be there when you go big, against sounder judgement. With a composite construction, this version of the D3 carries a few more grams than its slighter sibling, the D3 Carbon, but it also preserves more of your summer travel fund without sacrificing crash performance. The D3 Composite covers your head, cheek, and jaw, and dual-density shock pads absorb smaller impacts so that a wash out in a sandy switchback doesn't render the entire helmet compromised and in need of replacement. Plus, TLD remembered to carve out a wealth of vents to help your lid stay cool and dry when you trade white-knuckle descents for hike-a-bikes and miles-long climbs.
