Troxel, a leading supplier of ASTM/SEI certified equestrian helmets, has re-engineered their sizing program for the popular Grand Prix show helmet. The new Grand Prix Classic will now offer eight traditional hat/helmet sizes from 6 5/8 to 71/2 in order to provide a more instant, out-of-the box fit. The new program includes a patented Flip-Fold™ fit system that adjusts to the individual head shape and hairstyle to maximize comfort. The purpose of the new sizing program is to deliver a classic profile.
"The look and fit of the helmet is integral to comfort and the receptivity of the consumer to wearing the helmet in all circumstances," explained Dr. Rick Timms, Chief Executive Officer of Troxel. "Troxel's objective is to provide an exceptional helmet fit in addition to look, to maximize rider comfort and safety. In response to our recent market analysis and feedback from riders, it prompted us to re-evaluate our sizing options to provide a helmet with proper fit and minimum adjustment right out of the box. In a recent field trial of 130 riders, a satisfactory fit was achieved by 100% of the riders, meeting their comfort requirements."
The Grand Prix Classic will offer riders an attractive, sleek ASTM/SEI certified helmet in rich black velvet with a sought-after classic look for the show ring. Included is a removable, washable satin headliner with a flip adjustment for a customized fit as well as phantom flow ventilation and lightweight construction to provide a cool, comfortable ride. With a suggested retail price of $89.95, the new Troxel Grand Prix Classic represents great value by presenting a quality, comfortable and attractive SEI certified helmet at an affordable price. The Grand Prix Classic is available at Troxel retailers across the United States and Canada.
