Overview

Why We Love This

Trauma Void™’s EQ3™ helmet is the wave of the future, and the next step in brain protection technology for the equine industry. The most important component of the EQ3 helmet design is the incorporated Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (“MIPS”) technology, which has been used in bike, motor, and snow helmets for years. Safety may be the first priority of Trauma Void’s EQ3 helmet, but it has also been designed for comfort, style, and affordability. The design features a removable and washable COOLMAX® lining inside with great ventilation.

Multi-Directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) technology has been tested over countless hours and is proven to offer better protection against rotational motion than a helmet without MIPS. Since 1996, research and tests have been performed to compare a helmet with the MIPS Brain Protection System to a conventional helmet. The results showed that it was possible to redirect and reduce the rotational motion transmitted to the brain by adding the MIPS Brain Protection System.

Sizing
These tend to run small we recommend rounding up to the nearest cm and then go up one size.

To measure your head for the best fit, use a tape measure in centimeters. Place the tape measure ½ - 1 inch above the eyebrows (it should skim the tops of the ears), and take it round to the fullest part of the head. This is the circumference of your head in centimeters, and you should choose a helmet size that is in this range.

Firmness and tightness can feel similar when wearing your helmet, so take notice to the difference. When wearing the helmet, the brim should be about ½ - 1 inch above your eyebrows and level across. You should feel a firm, even pressure around the circumference of your head. No gap should exist between your helmet and head.

Your Trauma Void will have included two removable and washable Coolmax® liners. The liner that comes in the helmet has an even thickness the entire way around.  The liner included in the small bag attached to the hang tag is a thicker liner and can be better suited for those with oval-shaped heads. In order to determine the best fit try each liner individually. The Trauma Void™’s EQ3™ is great for a round fit but the slightly different levels in liner padding can assist with an oval fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helmet Head This helmet is beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and saw that it was accented with blue sparkle. I do love the helmet, however I am giving this a 4-star review because the helmet was advertised as fitting people with round heads comfortably, but this helmet is oval-shaped. The first helmet I received was missing an insert to “convert” round-shape to oval-shape; however it didn’t matter because when I got the proper inserts with the second helmet, it didn’t make a difference which insert to use because the helmet itself is oval shaped. The design is a poor attempt at trying to convert an oval to a circle. Luckily shipping was free; however, I was told the exchange would be an even one, but it was not and I ended up paying more for the second helmet. The helmet is not true to size, so it is recommended to purchase the next size up from your true measurement, regardless of whether your head is round or oval.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and a great value I'm in love with this helmet. Based on reviews, I expected problematic sizing. I measured and got the size right on the first try. It is supposed to run round, but fits my oval head like a glove-- none of the shifting I often had in my old CO. I hardly notice I'm wearing it. The best feature is the price point. I was shocked how much helmet prices had gone up in the last few years and really wanted to try the MIPS. This is a great value for something that looks nice for a show but has the most advanced features at a reasonable price. My only complaint is the chin strap. It seems to be very long and sit very forward. I do not have a very prominent chin, so I have to crank the strap very tight to keep it from slipping forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Helmet! I bought a size 7 based on previous helmets; unfortunately, this helmet felt too snug and I was afraid I would end up with a headache if I wore it too long for riding. I tried to exchange but the helmet must be popular because their sizes in stock were limited. I'll wait and try to order a larger size when inventory returns.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet! I absolutely love this helmet! Very comfortable to wear everyday, super easy to keep clean. It has a removable liner that I just throw in the washer. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and service After long research for a helmet for my daughter decided on this helmet for its safety features after two returns for it being the wrong size I guess third time was a charm my daughter loves the fit feel and look of this helmet. All sizing issues where due to my initial error in measurement and my 11 year old being stubborn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit Love this helmet, have been waiting for it to come back in stock for a while so glad I was able to get it. The fit is a little tight so I definitely agree with sizing up. The only down side is it looks a little big on, but I think it’s because of the MIPS, which is well worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very small My current IRH schooling helmet is over 10 years old, so I decided it was time to get a new one. Nothing beats the comfort of my Charles Owen Wellington show helmet, but I can’t afford that as an everyday helmet when there are a number of safety-acceptable cheaper ones on the market. Additionally, my CO doesn’t have a lot of ventilation, so not so good on hot summer days. Ventilation is important to me, not just to avoid having hair plastered to your skull in a sticky mess after riding, but studies show that cognitive functioning (ie decision-making) can be adversely affected as temperatures rise above 77 degrees. And I can tell you it’s been more than 77 degrees in my CO many times so I’ll blame that on my tendency to go off course in the ring. Before buying this Traumavoid helmet I did some research on MIPS technology. I was surprised to find that although it has been used in bike helmets for years, the effectiveness of the technology is somewhat controversial, mostly due to different testing methods. Many helmets handle rotational impact better than others even without MIPS. Some independent testing agencies expressed concern that MIPS seemed more salesmanship that science, while others said yes it made a difference. I purchased the Traumavoid because of the good price point and the thought that while the benefit of new technology may be arguable, no one said it was detrimental. When I received the Traumavoid, I noted the addition of the hard yellow plastic liner, the liner that moves on rotational impact. It seemed to me that this helmet would be very, very hot, as the liner has very few and very small openings for ventilation. And, although I took all the advice from other reviews and sized up, it was still too small for me. So, instead of exchanging it for a larger size, I returned it and bought the more expensive One-K Defender which has loads of ventilation, looks good and fits well but has no MIPS. I’ve ridden in it several times and find it has better ventilation than my old IRH which was pretty good. I can’t say for sure that the Traumavoid would have been exceptionally hot as I never rode in it. Had their sizing been better I might have tested it out but to be honest I don’t have the patience to keep ordering/reordering these types of things to get a good fit.
