Whether you're bombin' down the mountain or cruising the trails, then you'll want to wear a helmet to protect your head. The type of helmet you wear makes a difference though. A road bike helmet is built for aerodynamics and an all-mountain helmet is designed to protect more of your head while also providing excellent ventilation. The IXS Trigger AM Helmet is a helmet with double inmould shell technology and external and internal ventilation channels. It features a goggle compatible adjustable visor and an ErgoFit UltraTM system for horizontal and vertical adjustment. The magnetic closure makes it easy to open and close. If you're looking for an all-mountain and trail helmet, then you'll love the IXS Trigger AM Helmet.

I purchased this helmet as well as a POC Tectal SPIN. I ultimately decided to go with the IXS. The comfort was as good if not slightly better than the POC. Some of this comes down to personal PT. The POC is a great helmet but to get the fit right so that it did not slide down my forehead I had to tighten the helmet to a point that was not as comfortable. Ventilation seems to be very similar between the two helmets with a slight edge going to POC. The fit and finish on both helmets is great with the POC having the slight polish you would expect from a half shell that cost over $200. Both helmets have the extended coverage of coverage you expect from an all mountain helmet. The POC is slightly deeper and the IXS is slightly wider. What does the mean? In a side impact the POC covers more towards your temple while the IXS gives your side of your head more clearance from the ground. The visor of the IXS is superior to the POC. The IXS has a positive position indents and extends high enough for goggles. The POC requires loosing a thumb screw to move the visor and does not have enough room for goggles.
Both are great helmets. Ultimately the superior fit of the IXS won out for me. Is that due to it being a better fit for my head shape or does the retention system provide more even pressure? I couldn’t honestly tell you. What I can tell you is that the IXS which can easily be had at close to half the price of the POC is the overall winner for me.
Fidlock magnetic closure system works great - no more looking in the mirror to figure out out why I can't get the two ends to hook together. Very comfortable w/great ventilation & ratchet system gives perfect fit. Light weight + looks good! Quality product......
Comfortable, really comfortable . Not MIPS, but seems quite durable, seems heavy, but feels safe. I have only worn it twice on some long trail rides. It’s kinda hot, but I live in the desert, it tended to move down my brow and set a bit below where I like it , maybe just some adjusting. I did not think I would dig the magnet buckle, but I do.
