Troxel Celebrates 111 Years of Commitment to Safety

Horse Tack


In 1898, Troxel began transforming leather and steel into consumer products. This year, Troxel is proud to acknowledge its 111th anniversary and its 35th year of dedication to injury prevention products. Troxel has become the world’s largest and most trusted certified equestrian helmet manufacturer.

“We are proud of this important milestone and grateful to our loyal customers and to our employees who helped Troxel reach where we are today," said Shay Timms, CEO of Troxel. “Through Troxel’s 111 years in business, many things have changed, but our commitment to quality, safety and innovation remains our top priority. Troxel has the finest safety record in the equestrian helmet field and we continually engineer toward improvements.”

Founded in Ohio in 1898 as a pioneering manufacturer of products for the bicycling industry, Troxel expanded and innovated in other areas including world leadership in the engineering of children’s car seats. The equestrian helmet company of Troxel branched off from its Troxel parent in 1992. With its strong experience and innovation capabilities, it quickly emerged as a leader within the helmet industry. Troxel has provided 3.5 million helmets to the equestrian market.

The Troxel brand fostered numerous safety innovations in its 111 year history. Its equestrian advances have included the creation of the first lightweight, ventilated ASTM approved equestrian helmet, GPS micro-adjustable fit system, Flip Fold™ fit system, Soft-Tip™ visors, and many more. Today, Troxel offers fifteen helmet models in thirty-nine different styles, including six new colors introduced last month.

"We optimistically look forward to the years ahead." Timms said.
