[First Look] Troy Lee Designs D4

As we all know by now – and have known for some time – Troy Lee Designs is unveiling a new Daytona helmet … The D4. Worn by Brandon Semenuk in RAW 100 V5 as well as by all of the TLD athletes at Rampage, the new helmet is now available to consumers . Continuing the with trademark and legendary Troy Lee styling, the D4 manages to shed roughly a half pound from the weight of its predecessor, the D3 – all while being at least as safe and unquestionably more comfortable. It was a nice surprise to get home today to a package with this new helmet in it, just in time to snap some pictures at sunset.
