The highly evolved edition of the original Troy Lee Designs’ SE Helmet, the AIR Helmet features our state-of-the-art multi-level internal ventilation system that rams specific streams of pressurized air through 12 individual intake channels.

Meanwhile, five large independent exhaust vents jettison unwanted hot, humid, strength sapping air out the back.

Lighter than ever, the shell shape, in coordination with over eight square inches of intake area, place the AIR Helmet at the leading edge of comfort, quality and ventilation efficiency.

Troy Lee Design Air Helmet Review:

This is my second TLD helmet and it was a worthy upgrade from the original one. The major difference between this helmet and the originals is the multi-level ventilation system, which operates very well. I have raced last summer in this helmet with temperatures in the 30-40C range(90-104F) and it was perfectly adequate. Cool air circulates nicely through the vents.


I don’t have any specific dislikes about this helmet. The only thing I could possibly say is that the visor is a little too close to my face, but it is a matter of preference and I can deal with it.

The Troy Lee Designs Revolver Series Googles are the lightest scratch-resistant, anti-fog goggle available. The Revolver Series is the original goggle offering the best combination of lens, skirt, and frame construction at a price point that wont break the bank. The Revolver is versatile and suitable for a variety of riding conditions.

These goggle are perfect for those looking for a goggle with all the technology of high-end goggle at a low-end price.


The Revolver is an awesome goggle. What I love about it the most is that it is incredibly lightweight and at the same time it feels strong and protective.

The lens is more than adecuate and I never fog. The anti-fog spray I use is the Revolvs own anti-fog and I can vouch for its effectiveness.


The little rubber piece that covers the top of the nose is a bit uncomfortable at first but I got used to it and I like strim now.

The strap gets a bit twisted sometimes but it is not a big deal.Overall, I could not be more pleased with the Revolver. It is more than I could have ever dreamed of in a goggle. The best goggles I have ever worn. Read More

Product Review:

Overall, I really like this jacket. It is very comfortable and I think it is perfect for most conditions.

The AIRmesh is so comfortable and awesome that I could wear one under my graphic tees if this one were ever to fail! The zipper pockets are better than previous TLD jackets in that they have an interior waterproof pocket (great for cell phones!


The only thing I could possibly complain about is that the vents do not work very well. It is cool enough that I have never needed to use them but I have been a bit concerned about the fact I would be riding in a lot of rain and it is not fully seam sealed.

I would add water proofing to the cuffs to make it totally awesome!
