Mandee Widrick of Horse Family sat down with Troxel Vice President, Dustin Touchton and Marketing Manager, Karisa Dern for an exclusive interview about The Venture helmet at the recent American Horse Publications seminar in San Diego, CA.
Troxel LLC, the worldwide leader in ASTM/SEI-certified equestrian helmets, introduces the all-new high-performance Venture helmet. Designed by Troxel engineers with input from elite riders, the Venture revolutionizes helmet fit technology and showcases the next generation of helmet styling.
The Venture incorporates the all-new, innovative CinchFit™ system, featuring the ComfortCradle™ and EverFlex™ cinch strap, which work together to naturally adjust the helmet’s fit to the movement of the rider’s head. Combined with the plush and highly-breathable interior, the Venture’s features offer an unmatched level of comfort and stability you can feel immediately when you try it on.
“Troxel spent several years designing the Venture to meet the demands of riders who want their helmet to fit like a glove as well as express their individual style,” said Shay Timms, CEO of Troxel. “The new Venture helmet challenges traditional equestrian helmet design and gives riders an opportunity to wear one helmet, regardless of what equestrian activities they enjoy.”

The Venture helmet offers the perfect blend of aesthetics and function—it’s a must-have for me.”
