TROXEL UPGRADES DAKOTA DURATEC HELMET

Troxel LLC, a worldwide leader in ASTM/SEI-certified equestrian helmets, announced Oct. 14 the release of the updated Dakota Duratec helmet.

The Dakota now features an extended Soft-Tip visor engineered to reduce the possible occurrence of cuts or scrapes in the event of a fall. The new visor is composed of a structural plastic, co-molded with a soft, protective outer rim. In addition to protecting the rider from the sun, the new visor is more durable for daily use.

In addition to the new Soft-Tip visor, Steel Garcia Retention Rings have been added, completing the rugged, Western look of the helmet.

"The Dakota was the first certified helmet for the Trail and Western rider. This is the most highly ventilated and durable Trail riding helmet on the market and customer feedback has been great,” said Shay Timms, CEO of Troxel.

Available in a Sandstone, Grizzly Brown, or Black, the upgraded Dakota is available now from select retailers at an MSRP of $79.95. The Dakota is part of Troxel's line of Western helmets, including the Sierra ($119.95) and Cheyenne ($149.95).
