WHAT IT IS
The SE3 helmet is Troy Lee Designs' high-end top-of-the-line helmet. The DOT/Snell certified shell is constructed of carbon fiber with Kevlar reinforcements in high impact areas. The liner is a dual-density EPS liner that is designed to absorb impact better, and the visor is made to break away in the event of a crash. The helmet also features numerous air ventilation ports to improve airflow during long, hot motos. The ports also have stainless steel mesh on them to keep dirt and debris out. Lastly, the liner is removable and washable, and the front mouthpiece and upper air scoop are both replaceable.

The SE3 is arguably one of the most well-ventilated helmets on the market. The front air scoops are abundant and do an excellent job at keeping you cool during hot motos.

HITS
-Fitment is comfortable as none of our testers experienced any pressure points while wearing the helmet for extended periods of time
-Colorways are very cool looking and resemble a custom paint job. In fact, it's hard to believe that some of the designs offered aren't actual paint jobs
-High-quality screws hold the visor in place and don't strip out
-Large eye port for excellent vision and fitment of even the largest goggles
-We've crash tested the helmet, and in that particular instance, we walked away unscathed
-Removable liner makes it easy to keep the helmet feeling fresh
-Airflow is excellent
-Helmet comes with an extra visor incase you do crash and lose the visor
-The helmet that comes with the helmet is top-of-the-line and works great for transporting the helmet to and from the track

MISSES
-Mounting a GoPro to the top of the helmet is difficult due to the large air scoop
-Some testers complained that the cheek pads are too tight

The front mouth guard is replaceable as is the top air scoop, making it possible to customize the look of your helmet and fix it up once it looks tattered.

THE VERDICT
We've been riding in the TLD SE3 helmet for some time now and are very pleased with nearly every aspect. The helmet is comfortable, looks great, and has done an excellent job at keeping our head safe. Aside from a few minor complaints, we would recommend this helmet to just about anyone.
