I wore Troxels for years and then after my big spill in July I had to replace my helmet. I bought a Tipperary Sportage and I LOVE it. I haven't done a lot of riding in it yet, but it's very lightweight and so comfortable. I also like the fact that it seems to come further down the back of my neck than the Troxel.
I can't complain about the Troxel. It kept me alive with only cracks in my C1 and C2 and a pretty bad concussion. But after those cracks and a fractured transverse process in my T1, I figured anything that protected the back of my neck was a good thing. I don't actually KNOW that it's any better for the back of my neck, but at this point, even thinking it might be better helps my confidence.
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
