Troxel
Laredo Duratec
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Troxel
Model: Laredo Duratec
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I bought this helmet at a local retailer with a mass order from the barn. We recieved a nice quantity discount- $32 per helmet. I had an old Troxel Sport that needed replaced and liked the looks and fit of this helmet. I ordered a large dusk (blueish).

Likes: This helmet fits really well. No helmet shift at all. It has the "GPS" clicker system and is really fast to adjust for different hair styles on different days (or for different riders if you share). Comfortable, cool and I like the little concho accents. The headliner is removable and washable and it keeps sticks and leaves out of the slits while on the trail. Has a tabs to fold over on the sides for people with oval heads, but I haven't had to mess with them.

Dislikes: This helmet is a bit higher profile than some, not terrible though. Doesn't bother me a bit.

Quality: Seems like a great quality helmet. I haven't had it long, but if it's anything like my last Troxel it should wear like nails. Tough nylon harness, removable headliner (washable). The bottom has a molded shell (no exposed styrofoam) so that should help with wear as well.

Summary: If you need a good general use helmet this is it. Good for bopping around on the trails or for lessons. Great fit, good looks, durable, inexpensive and great brand.
