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.

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.

    Trauma Void EQ3 Smooth Shell Helmet is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I bought this helmet to replace an old one after a fall. The technology and price appealed to me. It’s a perfect fit and feels very secure. It’s easy to clean and nice to look at. Overall very happy with it and will purchase again if I need another helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit Just bought this to replace an old helmet. It fit perfect , glad reviews said to go one size bigger. Excited it has removable and washable liners:)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great helmet if it fits. I really wanted EQ3. My friends love those and they are supposed to be very safe. Unfortunately my head turned out to be to round for helmet to fit. One size was too large, and size down was to tight in my temples and little loose in front and back ( with round insert)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great if you can get the right size! Chose between this EQ3 model and Trauma Void's other model the Lynx. I returned this model in favor of the superior fit the Lynx gave me. My only gripe that kept me from going with this model was the fit. WAY too small! I had already gone up a size and a half. I measured between 55 and 56 cm at the widest point of my head. I ordered the sizing corresponding to 57 cm based on other reviews. Still WAY too tight! If you can order multiple sizes, I'd say go for it! Quality helmet with an attractive profile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet I LOVE this helmet. I originally bought tht lynx, but hated the way it looked and fit. The EQ3 is such a great fit on my head. I was worried it would be too hot, I've ridden in Tipperary Sportages for the last decade or so so I'm used to lots of ventilation. But it's isn't hot at all

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable but order up a size I measure 58 1/2 cm - tried the Lynx helmet but medium was too small and large was too big. I ordered the 59 cm and 60 cm based on reviews and the 60 cm fit perfectly with the oval head liner (the one with the padding on the sides). The only fit issue I would say is weird is the chin strap seems to jut out a bit forward. I also ordered the blue because the black was not in stock and actually like it alot - from far away it almost looks black. Can not comment on durability yet. I previously wore a 7 1/4 in Charles Owen.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird sizing I’ve had two fall-related concussions in the past year so I really REALLY wanted this helmet to fit and live up to my expectations. My head is 57.15 cm so I ordered the 57 cm and it was too small, ordered the 57 1/8 and it was way too big. The leather strap around the ears hit way too high up and the helmet just sat very high on the head. It seems like a very nice helmet- just had a strange fit. If you’re unsure of size I would recommend ordering both.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! Quick shipping as always and very comfortable helmet!
    Date published: 2020-03-17
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from strange fit I wanted a helmet for better protection. my head is 7 1/4 The Lynx in large was too big and the medium snug when fully opened. This helmet in 7 !/4 fit from front to back. The side fit was very sloppy with both liners. The excessive length on the chin strap absurd I had a 5 inch tail that would have been a drag to ride with. If it fit it might be OK but I'll go with the Lynx.
    Date published: 2020-02-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look! Bought this for the extra protection ... But the fit is a little non-traditional. (If you have an oval-type head, go up a size!) The one I needed was out of stock in black. Tried the navy and I just LOVE it. Not bright, just a black with a subtle blue. Perfect.
    Date published: 2020-01-21
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet, runs small... This is a really great helmet, bit it runs small. I am a 6 7/8 and can wear a 6 5/8 although it's a bit snug. I read other reviews and went up to a size 7 when I ordered. It fit like a 6 5/8. I ordered the Lynx in a 7, and it has been wonderful.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not fit I have an oval head helmet was round. So if you have a round head it probably would be OK

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great riding helmet! I bought this riding helmet for my daughter, she said it’s very comfortable and she really likes it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable helmet I've ever worn! I tried the Trauma Void at this year's WEG and was really impressed by the safety technology and its comfort. For the price it was worth the gamble (my previous helmet was $600+), and I'm so glad I did. It's really comfortable and flattering!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn’t fit :( I wanted to love this helmet. I really did. I was particularly interested in it because of the high safety ratings and new MIPS technology. (And thanks to International Helmet Awareness Day, I got a great deal on it!) The helmet style is lovely and has a good profile, but it just didn’t fit. The 7 1/4 fit my head circumference but was much too shallow for the top of my head. The 7 1/2 was a much better depth but had too large of a circumference. Also, the chin strap was weirdly long, and I had to shorten it all the way for a decent fit. Sadly, SmartPak doesn’t carry the 7 3/8. Was so disappointed this didn’t work out!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! A must own helment! Bought this helmet just recently and actually had a crash last week. I have had crashes in other top brand helmets, and have walked away with headaches and neck aches. But not with this helmet! The only part of my body that did not hurt was my neck and head! And I landed directly on my head!!! I used my right hand to help break my fall ,which resulted in a badly broken collarbone. But, my head was great! Catscan came back clean and I have not gotten a headache or neck cramp. Highly recommend this helmet!!!!

    Date published: 2018-09-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice but not my fit This seems like a very nice helmet just didn't fit my shape of head correctly. I tried several sizes but not go.
    Date published: 2018-08-31
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I really wanted to love it The helmet fit well, looked great BUT is squeaked and creaked terribly. No squeaking while sitting still but the posting trot and even worse the sitting trot was a squeaky nightmare. I tried both liners and the second liner made it squeak even worse. I'm just not sold on the technology and safety of the helmet because of this. Sending back and will be getting something else.
    Date published: 2018-08-23
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Helmet is comfortable, does not shift in motion at all! Only one problem--your measurement of your head must be very accurate to get a good fit. Had to return my "first try" and exchange it.
    Date published: 2018-07-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this helmet! This helmet is so comfortable and light, and the added safety features mean a lot since I've had multiple concussions and a Traumatic Brain Injury. Fits like a glove!
    Date published: 2018-07-25
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Helmet! This helmet fits and feels great. I like riding with the added security of knowing I'm as protected as possible without sacrificing comfort.
    Date published: 2018-07-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, True to Size Fit This is probably the most comfortable helmet I’ve ever worn. I can’t speak to it’s crash utility — and hope that stays the case — but definitely appreciate the fit.
