The D3 is a class leader in terms of safety and Troy Lee stop at nothing to create beautifully finished lids to suit a range of styles. With massive attention to detail the other features are definitely not lacking, the lid comes with an inner dual-density shock pad system that helps to absorb smaller impacts, withstand multiple hits and add greater durability for the single impact absorbing EPS liner.

There are 20 vents points on both models allowing maximum ventilation for the rider as well as removable, washable liners and padding. The helmets have a snug fit, but are designed this way to ensure it fits on your head properly. It is also designed to work well with a neck brace, a feature not often available with other helmets on the market, meaning the D3 is unmatched if you want the ultimate protection.

Composite colours: Pinstripe II Red, Finishline Black, Speed White and Zink.
