The Troxel helmet you have purchased is one of the lightest, best-ventilated and most comfortable helmets available. It is designed to reduce the harmful effects of an impact to the covered part of the head. Troxel equestrian helmets covered in this Owner’s Manual meet ASTM F1163 specifications. Additional standards may apply. Please refer to standards labeling on the inside of the helmet. No helmet can prevent all types of head injuries. By fully reading this manual and acquainting yourself with proper helmet fi t, care, and features, you may reduce the chance of injury during an impact. These instructions are intended for adults. Please contact Troxel Customer Service if you have any questions regarding these instructions. A helmet must be correctly worn and maintained to provide protection. Carefully read and follow these instructions. Incorrect use or maintenance of your helmet could lead to serious injury or death.
1. This helmet is designed for equestrian use only. 2. Helmets are not designed to prevent concussions and cannot protect a user from all impacts. ASTM/SEI certifi ed helmets are not certifi ed nor tested to protect users against the crushing forces that may be sustained by a horse or other large animal stepping onto the helmet or rolling onto the helmet of its user. All types of riding involve crush accident risk. If you are undertaking a form or riding, such as eventing or jumping, where there can be a high likelihood of a crush event, it is important that you realize that this helmet is not designed, nor will it protect you against, such signifi cant crush events. 3. Do not leave children unattended using this product, a hazard of strangulation exists. The helmet may become hung up on playground equipment, trees or other fi xed objects, resulting in hanging. 4. This helmet is designed for one impact only, and is not designed for multiple impacts. One impact can cause unseen damage to the helmet and affect the helmet’s protective capabilities. Return for replacement after any impact or accident, or destroy helmet and replace. 5. Fasten all retention buckles securely, and make sure retention is snug. 6. Follow proper head circumference recommendations. Use fi t instructions in this Owner’s Manual to achieve proper fi t.

Due to evolving helmet standards, technologies, and the potential for unseen material deterioration, it is recommended that you replace your helmet every five years from date of purchase. 14.
