The 2018 Troy Lee Designs SE4 Polyacrylite Yamaha RS1 dirt bike helmet is brand spanking new! Troy Lee didn’t forget all the Yamaha riders out! The Honda factory racing and KTM factory racing gear were released last summer and winter respectively. However, the new factory Yamaha line is the best looking one of the bunch, including this brand new helmet design. Not only is the 2018 Troy Lee Designs SE4 Yamaha RS1 a great looking helmet, but it also has tons of great features to keep riders comfortable and protected! This helmet is a must-have for anyone rides Yamaha.
TLD has three different motocross helmets within the SE4 shell family: the Carbon, the Composite, and the Polyacrylite. Each helmet shell has its pros & cons that riders should be aware of before they make a purchase. The 2018 Troy Lee Designs SE4 Polyacrylite Yamaha RS1 helmet obviously uses the SE4 Polyacrylite shell. This is their most affordable out of the three models The polyacrylite isn’t as light as the composite or carbon shells, but definitely light enough for serious racers. The material is very strong and has no trouble withstanding impacts, punctures and abrasions. The interior shell is comprised of Triple Density EPS foam, which helps spread out the force across the surface if the helmet. Sandwiched in between these two layers is the MIPS protection system. MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) is a low friction layer that allows the outer and inner shells to glide past one another. This feature helps mitigate dynamic forces acting upon the head of the rider. This three layer approach makes this one of the best dirt bike helmets in terms of safety. All Troy Lee helmets are DOT and ECE certified.
The 2018 Troy Lee Designs SE4 Polyacrylite Yamaha RS1 helmet has many other features, besides the awesome safety benefits! Obviously, safety is the most important feature when considering a helmet purchase. The second most important factor is the comfort of the motocross helmet. Every time you saddle up, that helmet goes on, and it might be while before you take it off again. A comfortable helmet can’t be stressed enough. This helmet features 18 high-flow intake ports and 6 exhaust ports to help keep you cool while you work up a sweat. The plush interior liner is moisture wicking, which draws moisture away from the riders’ skin where it can evaporate. Additionally, the liner is removable, antibacterial and washable. After a long day down at the track, the helmet can get pretty gross. The ability to wash or change out a liner keeps the helmet fresh for future rides.
