Troxel Introduces World's Most Advanced Equestrian Schooling Helmet

English Horse Tack Press Release

Troxel LLC, a leading manufacturer of ASTM/SEI certified equestrian helmets has introduced the Orion, a sophisticated and technically innovative helmet for equestrian schooling, training and recreation. The Orion introduces major advances in styling, fit adjustment, materials and durability.

The Orion's polycarbonate, in-molded shell and impact liner creates a streamlined, more durable and integrated helmet. Polycarbonate has a robust surface that is more resistant to dings, fading and extreme temperatures than standard shells. The in-molding process fuses the outer polycarbonate shell with the inner EPS liner forming a single integrated unit. An elegant harness covered by WR100X Pittards all-weather and stain-resistant leather accents the styling.

The Orion's patented Gripper Positioning System III (GPS III) introduces the sporting market's most advanced fit adjustment system. Its easy-to-use tensioning mechanism provides a ready adjustment to comfortably accommodate head shapes and hairstyles.

The Orion is the first helmet with a semi-soft heel that protects the base of the helmet during everyday use. The helmet also introduces a new 'soft tip visor' that adds facial protection through its soft, rubber edge that flexes when encountering significant forces. The new visor enhances the helmet's style through a texture that eliminates hard plastic edges.

"The Orion is the finest helmet that Troxel has ever produced in terms of the combination of quality, technology, comfort and appearance," said Dr Richard Timms, Troxel's CEO. "We've applied our most advanced research and development elements to bring a new level of helmet to our market. It is an ideal helmet for performance riders, whether training or pleasure riding, in all types of climate and riding conditions."

The Orion is available in small, medium and large in onyx green, eggplant and smoke. The Orion can be purchased from select retailers and catalogs at an MSRP of $139.95.
