    I haven’t seen anything really revolutionary about the A1 helmet. It doesn’t look any different to me than a POC, or Fox Flux. It looks very similar to the previous Shoei TLD RC-3 TL Comp helmet that was released several years ago. Seems to me, they took a regular style AM helmet, put some graphics on it, a TLD sticker on it, almost doubled the price and throw it on the market as something new! Not impressed.

    If you’ve ever owned a TLD full-face you’ll know the quality and fit is noticeably above and beyond most mtb-specific full-face helmets(I’ve owned or tried). If this holds true for the A1 in comparison to other AM helmets I think TLD will have another winner on their hands.

    i’ll wait to compare it to the bell super.

    The TLD A1 Enduro looks functionally identical to the Fox Flux I just bought for $60, to the point that I wonder if both helmets came from the same Chinese factory. My Flux doesn’t have an ornately printed plastic outer shell, or anodized aluminum screws. What exactly have TLD done to set the A1 apart from the Flux, apart from spending more on branding and using the world’s most expensive ($125!) screws?

    Look at Kali. Better construction, better protection,less money. Troy lee makes quality but not top quality

    Without a shadow of a doubt, the most comfortable mtb helmet I have ever worn (in the 20 years I’ve been riding). Looks good, protects your bonce, and yeah, it’s expensive… but get your hand in your pocket, you can’t take your pennies with you!!
