The Daytona, D2 and D3 series of helmets redefined the marriage between technology, safety and artistic design. The new Troy Lee Designs D4 is changing the game again.
Using TeXtreme® Spread Tow carbon fiber reinforcements in the shell of the new TLD D4 Carbon Freedom helmet has helped pare down the weight of the full-face helmet by almost 50 grams without sacrificing strength. Despite the loss in weight, we were able to strategically add EPS to increase strength and durability. Integrated MIPS Brain Protection System designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head. The new TLD D4’s package is rounded out with lightweight titanium D-rings, collarbone suspension system and quick release XT2 3D cheek pads and X-Static washable liner.

It has saved my head once and I bought the same one again as a replacement. Beware, I ordered a size M and the new 2023 model is slightly different compared to the 2021 model. The old one shared the same shell for both M and L and differed only in the padding. The new one has a M-sized shell and it's very slightly tighter, than the older one (padding wear considered).
Perfect fit, good ventilation Nr.1 helmet for the BMX racing for sure! Fits just perfect with my SPY Optic Foundation goggles.
Troy Lee Designs Once again proves the level of quality.
