This is not true. I have owned (still do), ridden in, fallen in, sold and recomend Troxel helmets. I ride in a Troxel Sport. I have NEVER had an issue with them or thier harnesses. 1 bad experience (which I assume you may have had) does not = bad product. Even your best products can suffer a manufactoring error (creating a defective item that got through the crack). It happens, I mean after all they are still created by human beings.
I even recommend them to my students because they don't cost and arm and a leg to purchase. Various styles to choose from. I am over due for a new one but since i'm not riding much these days I am not in a hurry.
Many ppl do not know how to adjust the harnesses correctly or even wear the harnesses correctly fitted on the head (esp when fitting them to children). Most I have found esp in the sales of such items don't know how to correctly fit the helmets. Usualy its rider/user error that causes the problems not the product themselves.
Helmet fit and harness adjustment regardless of brand are VERY important in the efficiency of the item. Also if you keep it in the vehicle when not in use the heat of the vehicle will degrade helmet material including nylon over time make the helmet (of any brand) break down and lose its effectivness. Don't store them in your car.
