Troxel Introduces New Helmets
The New Alternative
for All Trails riders
Troxel continues its steadfast efforts to develop a product line that not only offers the highest-quality helmets available in the industry but also the most fashionable ones. Among Troxel's latest creations the "Laredo" helmet contains all the elements to become a favorite of the All Trails rider.
The "Laredo" helmet offers a lightweight, sleek, and well-ventilated design. Among its diverse features are: our exclusive "hat band system"; which eliminates "helmet bob" providing more stability and comfort. The bottom shell is in-molded, which considerably increases the durability of the helmet. It also introduces a color coordinated moisture management "pad system".
Troxel's "Laredo" helmet comes in an earthy brown tone called "Pueblo", and has the exciting amenity of including a suede covered visor. Another first by Troxel, the "Laredo" helmet is our answer for the recreational rider who seeks the latest advancements in comfort and technology with a casual and fashionable All Trails look.
The "Laredo" was designed to satisfy ASTM/SEI requirements and we anticipate receiving these certifications in the near future. The "Laredo" helmet has a suggested retail price of $ 59.95 and will be available this fall throughout the U.S. at Equestrian retailers.
The "Spirit" and
Troxel, in its commitment to offer the industry fresh and revolutionary designs, is now introducing the "Spirit" helmet. This English schooling helmet will bring new styling and comfort to the English market.
Troxel developed the "Spirit" helmet to offer another option to the schooling riders seeking a new sleek design and a comfortable fit.
The design of the "Spirit" offers: a unique integral "comfort pad system", which is easily removable and washable; a removable visor; an in-molded bottom shell that increases the durability of the helmet; and Troxel's exclusive "GPS" gripper system that adds stability and eliminates "helmet bob".
The "Spirit" helmet is lightweight and well ventilated and is offered in three versions; black, white, and Antiquus- a black background with a subtle bronze graphic of the antique horse that has become one of Troxel's logos and a symbol of our pledge to English riding and its tradition.
The "Spirit" and "Antiquus" helmets were designed to satisfy ASTM/SEI requirements and we anticipate receiving these certifications in the near future. The Spirit black and white have suggested retail prices of $49.95 and the suggested retail price for the Antiquus version is $54.95. These helmets will be available this fall throughout the U.S. at Equestrian retailers.
The "Radius XR" Helmet
Troxel announces the introduction of the "Radius XR" (extra ring of protection), a high technology helmet that defines a new frontier and leadership in styling and protective headgear.
Troxel's acclaimed research and development team engineered the "Radius XR", as a response to the challenge of offering a high technology and fashionable helmet for the aggressive equestrian rider or any other rider who wants the ultimate in high technology styling and protection.
To create the "Radius XR", Troxel's research and development team combined, experimented with, and tested materials used in the aerospace industry because of their high-strength and low weight properties.
The team selected a unique carbon fiber shell. They created an extremely light, unusually strong black carbon design in show helmet styling. Within the lightweight liner is the "extra ring of protection", a carbon reinforcing structure molded inside the impact absorbing expanded polystyrene.*
The combination of technology and materials of the "Radius XR " results in crush strength 2-3 times greater than that of standard, plastic shelled ASTM helmets.
The "Radius XR" also features our "Comfort Fit system", which adjusts to provide a proper comfort and fit for nearly all wearers, and advanced direct ventilation ports.
Among other amenities, the "Radius XR" has black suede covering the visor, button, straps, and ribbon.
The "Radius XR" was designed to satisfy ASTM/SEI requirements and we anticipate receiving these certifications in the near future. The Radius XR has a suggested retail price of $299.95 and will be available this fall throughout the U.S. at Equestrian retailers.
