TSG Trailfox Helmet


TSG Trailfox Helmet review


Price as reviewed:


The Trailfox is TSG’s new trail/enduro helmet, in the same mould as the Troy Lee A1 and Giro Montaro. It extends quite far down at the rear and is bottom-wrapped to protect the EPS. Ventilation is via eight intake and exhaust vents, linked with internal air channels, and multiple visor cutaways.

You can’t tilt the visor while riding, but it does have two positions, accessed via a press-stud style fitting. The lowest placed the visor in my eye line, so I moved it to the upper position, at which point one of the studs broke. Those studs have now been reinforced, TSG says.

The retention device gets a dial adjuster that can be turned with one hand on the move, but there’s a sharp edge to the bottom of the helmet that the padding doesn’t fully cover. Correctly adjusted, though, the Trailfox felt snug with no hot spots or pinch points.

For a helmet designed for trail/enduro the Trailfox is surprisingly well vented, a reasonable weight and pretty durable, but I’d like to see better padding and a fully-adjustable visor.
