Troy Lee Designs D3 Helmet 2017 Line Up

It looks like it’s the end of February, this is the time of the year where Troy Lee Designs launch their fresh new range of D3 Helmets.

There are two models the MIPS version which we have seen creep into the range lately. MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, and according to TLD it is a revolutionary technology that lets the helmet slide relative to the head, adding more protection against rotational violence to the brain caused by angled impacts. Meaning it’s even safer. But it’s also more expensive. The other model is the same (non-mips) version that’s been around for a while now.
