Does anybody know if Troxel riding helmets are any good? I'm looking at this one currently and would like some feedback before I buy. Thanks!

'Good' is subjective.

As long as they have the approved safety ratings, they'll work just as well as any other helmet when it comes to head protection.

Will they fit your head properly and be comfortable? That's another thing entirely.

My first helmet was a Troxel. Once that one needed replacing I moved on to Aegis, and most recently bought a Tipperary Sportage. I'm very happy with the Tipperary, and will continue to purchase them.

I've never had their Sport, but I had cheap Spirit and it saved my head when I fell on rocks once. I have 2 other models by Troxel - it seems to be the best fit for my head.

Really! Lots of people I know own Troxel and happy with it. As I already said I had a very bad fall with my cheap Troxel on, and it literally saved my head (helmet had a big dent after that).

I loved the look of the Troxel, but the shaoe doesn't fit my head, I changed to IRH and they are so comfortable for me, I love them, have one for show, and one for schooling now.

Joe has a hate on for Troxels, for some reason. He rags on them at every opportunity.

I don't think there's anything wrong with them, I just don't like the way they fit my head.

I'm not sure what 'evidence' Joe has to back up his claims of them being junk. I've heard nothing of the sort, and he's the only one I know who seems to gave a vehement hatred of them.
