Troy Lee Designs A2 Mips Starburst MTB Helmet - 2018
Troy Lee Designs took the popular A1 and perfected it, resulting in the incredible A2. Overall, the A2 offers a high level of protection thanks to the reinforced shell liner and Mips technology. It has fantastic ventilation which comes from the six large pressurising intake passages and seven rear vacuum exhausts which are linked by deep internal channeling to promote efficient cooling and airflow. A combination of quick-wicking foam liner, adjustable rear stabilizer and a no-fuss fit system for perfect fit every time, this will be the go-to helmet for hitting the trails. This 2018 version sees a new improved liner and adjustable strap.

Helmet arrived quicky was the cheapest I found it. Worn it a few times now and its hands down the comfiest helmet I have ever worn. Fits my small head very well and I forget I am wearing it. The straps round your ears are set out so they are flat with your face so no bulky plastic bit to come loose or tap your cheek while riding, they are also separate from the chin strap so adjusting one doesnt affect the other. And its an awesome colour
Great helmet for mountian bike riders. Comfort with awsome air flow it's like your not even wearing a helmet.
Merlin had the lowest price with free shipping over the pond
This is the most comfortable helmet I have ever owned. The fit is fantastic and it looks really good too.
After owning an a1 helmet for over two years, I bought the a2 at a very competitive price at merlincycles.
The a2 has solved all of the weak points of the a1. The design of the helmet is better. The A2 sits a little higher on the head than the A1 but still is very comfortable. The air flow is much much better.
The a2 is an excellent fit on
my head...I Highly recommend it.
This helmet is amazing! The build quality is unbelievable and the helmet is super comfortable. I bought this online after measuring my head and ordering according to the TLD size guide... The fit is perfect! All I can say is WOW, I love this helmet and Merlin cycles!
I have owned 2x MTB helmet earlier and wasn't pleased to those.
Then I saw this helmet and it had so good reviews and I decided to also order it.
Zero regrets, this helmet fits so perfectly and has much adjustments for even better fit.
Feels so comfortable that I doubt there can't be any better helmet on market.
Highly recommended, wish I had found this helmet on first place.
Great fit with a good size difference. I got the M/L size.
The MIPS is perfect.
High quality finish as usual from TLD.
Feels very well made, great fit and design. Feels heavy and sturdy but don`t notice it when riding
Mr Gavin Leighton
Having wanted the TLD A2 for some time I did some research, prices ranged from £135 - £150 which I thought fair considering the quality of other TLD Helmets I own, but, having found Merlin Cycles I was exstatic to see it on offer for £79, they had my size, M/L, and colour, Starburst Red.
From selecting the product through to payment it was a seamless process, I opted for next day delivery, an additional £4.50, given the saving I had made against the competition it was a no brainer. Confirmation of order and later despatch was of a personal nature, the email was adressed to me using my Christian name, not just a generic, "dear customer" which in my opinion means that they care and that my business matters to them. When my goods had been despatched, theirdelivery service provider, DPD, emailed me with my tracking number and options to change the date of my delivery, they kept me up to speed every step of the way, even letting me know the name of the driver who would be delivering my parcel, all in all the service I received from Merlin Cycles and DPD was of the Rolls Royce Standard, bloody brilliant, as for TLD Helmet, a fabulously engineered piece of quality, extremely comfortable, excellent venting and envy inducing looks when out on the trails, I'm one very happy customer.
Amazing product, durable, stylish and super comfy. It is so worth the money to buy a decent helmet! I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone. Purchasing this from Merlin Cycles was a great decision too. Super fast delivery, great communication and very well packaged. I will definitely buy again. Thank you
Always like the fit of the TLD A1 and now trying the A2... so far so good!
Extremely comfortable and well fitting, mips system is barely noticeable after coming from a non mips helmet
Fantastic high end Enduro/Trail Helmet. Already being an avid fan of TLD helmets & currently own an A1, I decided to move on up to the benefits of MIPS protection. The logical way to proceed was to go down the A2 route. Here's the reason why, significant improvements have been made over the A1, from the inclusion of MIPS as standard . Bigger vents provide more efficient cooling , the A1 could get a bit warm, the chin strap design has been reviewed & improved so as not to cut into the bottom of your ears., the fully integrated web imbedded into the helmet shell provides added protection The fit is exceptionally comfortable & easy to adjust via a rear thumb wheel. Make no doubt this is a very high quality helmet at a very reasonable price.
Casque confortable, finitions impeccables. Très bonne aération et englobe bien larriere du crâne. Plus le nouveau système de protection MIPS on se sent bien protégé . Correspond à mes attentes.
Amazing helmet and great quality. Very comfortable and adjustable and looks great!
