With 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 320 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 up with the Trail RS.
I ride up, ride down – I kind of do everything. The ultimate deal now days is to have one 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 has good enough coverage so that you feel confident in many situation.
