I'm really digging the d3 speed orange helmet . I wish I didn't see a pic of one because I really don't need a new helmet but that thing is to sexy to pass up .

I really like the that Troy Lee are doing their own thing and going for a style which is not so mainstream anymore. It makes sense considering how heavily they have influenced the current look going on at Fox and Bell. It's like those guys have just caught up to what tld were doing, so they're going to do something else. As good as the Fox/Bell helmets look I think it's important that there is an alternative on offer.

As for the glossy old-school look, I think they've pulled it off really well with the Gwin and the Speed Orange. They take me back to the early 2000's and those first guys who were really serious about trying to go fast on mountain-bikes. They look fast, and that's timeless. However if they are going to go with that look they need to go full beans. The old school look doesn't work with a modern matte finish.

And as for the whole eye-ball, checkered, hot-rod thing, we are mountain bikers. We're all about going fast and having fun, but this stuff isn't current and it doesn't tie into the heritage of our sport at all! There is no checkered flag in mountain biking and there never has been.

TLD helmets are over rated. A crash in a full face TLD moto helmet left me with a broken jaw last season. If you want real protection look elsewhere. There sure do LOOK good though!

If you're racing at 60kph and smash your face onto a tree, you'll destroy your face regardless of what helmet brand you have. That's what happened to Matti Lehikoinen in 2011. The downside of the lids are never really strong

@tmano2, customers and fans still want and like a subtle black helmet that matches anything, but a fresh pinstripe design makes it different. You can't please everyone, but change is good.

don't get me rong, for me that's the best paint that tld has, i only changed because i cracked mine on a crash and it's to pricey to buy another

@tmano2, not so stupid actually, we only worded the black pinstripe as 'all new' when it first came out...hence the reason this one is called PINSTRIPE II, as in 2nd version. It is an all new pinstripe design that Jay in the TLD paintshop whipped up with Troy.

yes, its a little different but it's barely noticeable, i had one that boght in 2012 i think and i only noticed that this one was with different pin striping when you said, and de logos are different colour too
