Troxel, makers of Troxel helmets, has been around for a while. It was established in 1898, which is a really long time for a business to be around. It tells me something about the company. It knows what it is doing. Since its inception, Troxel has been a leader in safety innovation across a number of industries including bicycle riding and automobiles. In the 1990s it entered the equestrian market and began to develop helmets tailored to horseback riding.
In 1992 Troxel, first introduced a lightweight, vented, ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) approved equestrian helmet. The companies founder and chairman, Dr. Richard Timms, developed the helmets after years as a specialist in critical care and research professor at The Scripps Institute.
Since 1992, Troxel has been consistent pioneers in equestrian helmet development. They sport an impressive list of first including:
First to introduce helmets for Trail and Western riders – English riders ad been wearing helmets for years. However, western riders had developed a stigma for wearing helmets. Troxel set out to change that.
First to introduce an equestrian helmet fit system and later the patented Flipfold headliner fit system. The Flipfold system allows the inner liner of a helmet become thicker or thinner with the simple fold of integrated tabs.
First to introduce the patented Phantom Flow ventilation system in show helmets.
First to introduce removable and washable helmet liners.
First to introduce advanced materials into equestrian helmet manufacturing including rubberized paint coverings and carbon fiber.
And those are just the beginning. There is no doubt that Troxel helmets are top of the line in equestrian helmets. If you are a rider or have a young rider in your family, you cannot go wrong in protection with these superior helmets.
