Troy Lee Designs® (TLD) is recognized as the world’s premier custom helmet paint shop. Troy’s dad was born into racing, and lucky for us, it got into Troy’s blood at an early age. “You hear the sound of motorcycles and cars when you’re in the womb, and you’re just born with it. Man, I know I was,” said Troy. He became a racing pro in Southern California by the late ’70s and spent his spare time painting helmets in his parents’ garage. Soon everyone wanted a piece of his art, and it ended up on the helmets of Oakley MX pros like Mark Barnett and Jeff Ward. TLD is how today’s warriors of steel and octane carry their colors into battle, and countless racers have worn the company’s mind-bending designs.

Choose the Polished White frame with black graphics on the exterior surface, or go with the Polished Black frame that has silver colored graphics on the interior.

This evolved into an interest in hunting scenes set against strangely colored sunsets. Since then his work has become increasingly psychedelic and his murals, well, just strange.
OAKLEY JUPITER LX is engineered with optical performance that passes all ANSI Z80.3 standards.

A Message from Troy…
For over 25 years, I have been customizing helmets “For The World’s Fastest Racers.” Our relentless commitment to creating products that exceed the cutting edge style, design and quality, has given us the reputation as an innovator in many different racing fields. Troy Lee Designs has since expanded into a full force operation, offering a product line from helmet visors and graphics, to casual wear and the all new Speed Equipment Racewear.
I have to thank all the amazing athletes that we have worked with over the years, and welcome the new ones that will become part of our team. From F1 to Indy to NASCAR, Motocross to Enduro to Freestyle, Dirt Track to Road Racing, MTB to BMX and on down the line, we have been fortunate to work with the best in the world. We at TLD appreciate the fact that every day the racers get out there and put it all on the line.. They are my motivation to hop out of bed every morning and smile all the way to work! Never in a million years did I think I’d have my own race team. With racing, you’re forced to take the good with the bad, and the emotion is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Just like the sense of fulfillment and achievement I’ve felt creating this business. I work with amazing people. My passionate and talented employees have created a body of work that has many convinced we’re the most creative and artistic company in all of racing.
I have a wonderful wife who endures the craziness I put her, and probably everyone through. I have two gifted kids Max and Carly, and a new set of twins Dylan and Maya. And I’ve been able to make a living out of the two things I enjoy most: racing and art. They say that great art comes from strong emotion. Well, what I’m feeling right now is about to make my eyes well up.
See you at the races,
