Troy Lee Designs D3 Carbon MIPS – Starburst Black
This D3 Carbon Starburst Helmet from Troy Lee Designs is a multi-award winning full-face helmet and an updated version of their class-leading D2 helmet with functional improvements and next-level safety devices. This helmet is also equipped with MIPS?, a patented brain protection system developed to reduce rotational violence to the brain from angled impacts
Quality is Remarkable
D3 is the only helmet to win Redbull Rampage Gold, WC DH Series Gold and Olympic BMX Gold. The quality of this helmet is remarkable, so much so that riders such as Sam Willoughby, Alise Post, Brendan Fairclough, Aaron Gwin, Mariana Pajon, Cam Zink, Luca Shaw, Steve Peat and Brandon Semenuk refuse to wear any other helmet.
This helmet is constructed from a technologically advanced carbon fibre shell with an aerodynamic shell design that has been digital wind tunnel tested and a revolutionary injection-moulded air intake system for ultimate temperature regulation. There are also twenty high-flow intake and exhaust ports for superior ventilation and deep EPS channelling for maximum airflow.
Optimal Comfort & Durability
Features include additional EPS and the updated head form for improved impact performance, full incremental sizing to allow for a greater range of fitment and strategically placed interior chin bar shock pads for optimal comfort and durability.
Quick-Release Cheek Pads
Other features include a removable and washable padded liner with Dri-Lex? and Coolmax? moisture-wicking properties, contoured 3D cheek pads that fit anatomically and are quick-release in the event of emergency helmet removal and purpose-built internal cavities for audio integration. There are 2 visors and a helmet bag included with the D3.

MIPS?: This helmet is equipped with MIPS?. It is a patented brain protection system developed to reduce rotational violence causing strain in the brain at angled impacts. MIPS? mimics the brain?s own protection system by adding a low-friction layer between the head and the helmet.
What is MIPS?
- MIPS is a Brain Protection System
- Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
- The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10?15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
- MIPS adds protection
Hand Laid MCT Carbon Fibre: The hand laid prepreg carbon/composite/MCT weave blend allows for superior shell construction and weight reduction. The top layer UD (unidirectional) carbon weave provides strength and style. High modulus Kevlar reinforced high impact zones increase strength and rigidity. There is nylon reinforcement polymer in key high-wear and impact zones.
