CF DESIGN AND FUNCTION
It wasn't easy to improve upon the class-leading design and function of our D2 helmet, but we made it happen. By integrating next-level safety devices and making functional improvements, we raised the bar for head protection in the genre with our D3.
Riders like Brendan Fairclough, Aaron Gwin, Steve Peat, Brandon Semenuk and Cam Zink refuse to wear anything else when they pedal. With styles and colors to fit any personality, the only question is: Which one is for you?

Ratings & Reviews
I just got this helmet about a week ago and loved it right out of the box. It is extremely lightweight, but feels sturdy. Very secure to my head and doesn't wobble around my face or bounce up and down through rough sections or braking bumps. All in all, the D3 is the best helmet I have ever owned and I would recommend it to anyone in the market for buying a new helmet.
Great helmet for any type of riding
Pros: Air flow, Weight, Style, finish, extra visor, bag <br>Cons: Price <br>Similar Products: Mad Max II, Spec Deviant, Bell and Fox full face <br> <br>Over a year ago, I was looking at a new helmet to replace my Mad Max. And after talking with my wife, she surprised me with a Black, Carbon D3 for my birthday. <br> <br>Riding with the new helmet has been a dream. I live in NYC and split my riding time between DJ, trail riding, and trips to Mountain Creek Bike Park. It was instantly apparent with the D3 how much the lightweight, carbon shell impacts the neck and shoulders. <br> <br>I have put the helmet thought its paces in all weather and riding situations, from DH in the winter, to jumping in the summer, and it exceeds my expectations. Most full face helmets make me sweat endlessly on a hot day, but the D3 is so well ventilated that it keeps me cooler than my current half face. <br> <br>The D3 is a luxury item, but the fit, finish, and performance make it a solid value. I highly recommend the Carbon D3!
BEST HELMET OUT
by RICKY DEFREREITAS
I PURCHASED A D3 CARBON HELMET LAST SEASON, FROM A RECOMMENDATION FROM A GOOD FRIEND. BEST HELMET I'VE WORN HANDS DOWN. SUPER COMFY, DOES NOT GET EXTREMELY HOT. SUPER LIGHT WEIGHT, TOTALLY LOVE IT. I NEVER NOTICE THAT I HAVE IT ON.
Best Dh helmet out there
Best fitting helmet I've ever had. Super comfortable and they always look great. The quality is the greatest, I haven't had to replace any of the liner/padding.
Best Helmet On the Market
by Steven Bobyn
been riding a carbon d3 for a few years and I can truly say it's the best looking, feeling, and performing helmet on the market. Well worth the price.
To be the best, you should wear the best!
Love my D3 helmet. Breathability, and the fit & finish is exceptional, along with the piece of mind that it is one of the safest lids available. Not to mention its construction is light weight. I recommend TLD gear to any athlete!
Safety and comfort
by Ian Bongard
The most comfortable helmet I have EVER used. I have worn multiple DOT and Fox helmets and the D3 is by far my favorite. If I could buy any helmet I wished this would be the one every time. I recommend the D3 to anyone who wants a new helmet. This is the helmet I trust to protect me.
D3 for the win!!
Super light, very comfortable and looks awesome. What more do you need in a DH lid.
Hope i win the new 2016 tld d3
This d3 tld helmet i got since 2014 It s have swag style on it anywhere i wear it i get compliments .makes on it light carbon material like a feather and its just right to wear i feel safe on this when im in a dh trail .
I've been using D3 helmets since they came out and I've been very satisfied with the performance of these helmets. I've seen my share of crashes in this time and this helmet has kept me protected. Highly recommended!
Best fit and style
I have been wearing Troy lee helmets since 2008 or so with a d2. I purchased a d3 as a replacement in 2012 and couldn't be happier. Now on my third d3, this helmet with the matte finish is perfect for adding a couple sponsor stickers and making them pop. I have tried several different helmets over the years from fox and bell. Can't beat the fit or the style of the d3. I will continue to replace my helmets as needed with Troy lee designs lids.

Amazing design and comfortable as well
Best helmet on the market
Best fitting helmet in the world. Feels and looks amazing.
Best fullface in the game
This is the best full face I have ever worn. Extremely comfortable once cheek pads are broken in and sizing chart is very accurate. The black color doesn't heat up nearly as bad as I thought and when riding ventilation does it job. Removable pads are a plus and easy to wash. Carbon doesn't scratch too easily either. A+ helmet!
A full face must have!
Fantastic helmet! The D3's are always on point with their style and comfort! The new 3D cheek pads are a bit tighter but still very comfortable. It doesn't matter if you get the carbon model or the composite model, these helmets are arguably the lightest on the market. These helmets are definitely a most have!
Lightweight, Stylish, Great Fit!
I purchased the very first version of the D3. I still have it till this day. I love everything about it. Its lightweight. Fits great, easy to clean liner. It looks amazing still! The padding doesn't feel bulky. I will easily buy another one when I need it. The only issue that I had was one of the meshed vents came off the back. Its the very top one. Other then that its been great!
Kick *** helmet
by Austen Selk
Whether you're pedaling to the top or starting from the top, this helmet is awesome. I've owned a worn a few different full face helmets and after all was said and done I preferred and went back to Troy Lee. Terrific looking, comfortable, excellent fit, spare visor and helmet bag. Its perfect.
A thing you need!!!
Just got this sick helmet. It's superlight and looks awesome. The 20 high flow intake and exhaust ports for maximum ventilation are also very good. When you wear the helmet you got a very safe feeling, because of the Quick-release cheek pads for emergency helmet removal.
D3 is life!
Fantastic helmet! The D3's are always on point with their style and comfort! The ventilation is flawless and the new 3D cheek pads are awesome! It doesn't matter if you get the carbon model or the composite model, these helmets are arguably the lightest on the market. Definitely a most have.
NOT F150 proof
by John Reid
Loved my D3 first time I put it on. The fit was perfect, it looked great and it protected my head on many rides. My only complaint is that I wish it could have been so strong that the rear wheel of my Ford F150 didn't crush it when I accidentally backed up on my TLD gear bag! What a sickening feeling it is when you destroy a $450 piece of art. Moral of the story is ALWAYS take a walk around your vehicle before driving off. I hope to replace it soon but at least I have my A1.
Buy This Now!!
by Cayden MacCachren
Amazing Helmet! Super lightweight you can barely feel it's there. The best things about this helmet are its vents and killer designs!
How I wish I own one of these
I borrowed D3 Aaron gwin from my friend for a week, and ohhh boyy i wish i could one of these. I kinda don't want to return back hahahaha. AND YES IT IS THE BEST HELMET I WORN SO FAR. fits perfectly size M for me. I can feel the wind ventilation already at a leisure speed. super comfy doesnt feel "push" my cheeks. Hands down the best, made by the best!!!
JUST LOVE IT!
by sofia abrigo
i just got this helmet before the EWS started, and it was definetly love at first sight!! first of all i love the new black cause you can combine it with any goggle you want, and of course with all the clothes from TroyLeeDesigns women´s line! that is one of my favourite things about the color, its just a perfect, beautiful and simple black. <br>Its completly light so you can do all the enduro race with it, cause you can also remove the cheekpads and the ventilation is perfect. If you crash with it, your head will be completly safe. <br>The designs of the helmet is awesome i´ve always like the D3 helmet, and i will never change it ! cause the helmets rocks by it owns, the best helmet on the market, so if you still dont have one, go and get one NOW!!
