IXS and Richie Schley put their heads together and produce a new enduro lid

Posted by Caleb Smith on Tuesday July 9 2013

Okay Schlabletop jokes aside this new helmet from IXS and the Schleyer is pretty damn dope, hopefully some one will pick up IXS soon as they are making some pretty rad stuff at the moment, but in the mean time you can purchase stuff direct off their site here, although the Trail RS is available until the end of August.

The “Trail RS” iXS presents a new helmet that has been developed in cooperation with freeride legend Richie Schley. Its double in-mold construction keeps your head cool with 22 vents and offers extended rear coverage. Thanks to the Ergo Fit Ultra system the “Trail RS” offers a tight fit, and the visor comes with a quickrelease mechanism so it does not break in a crash. Available in four matte colours and weighing just 300 grams, the helmet is EN1078 and CPSC certified.
“iXS approached me three years ago to collaborate in a helmet concept and that would be something in between a downhill helmet and a cross country helmet. A helmet that has good coverage, is light weight and still super ventilated. That’s where we came out with the Trail RS.
I ride up, ride down – I kind of do everything. The ultimate deal now days is to have on set up and that would be an all-mountain or enduro set up. Protection is breathable and light weight and you can pedal in all day and you have a helmet that goes exactly with that. It’s completely breathable, good enough coverage so you feel confident in many situation”.
