IXS Launch the Trigger FF, The Lightest Full Face Out There.

Swiss clothing and protection brand IXS have killed it with their new Trigger FF downhill-rated full face that comes in at just 600g.

Could IXS have just launched the full face helmet to beat? The 600g and downhill-rated Trigger FF certainly looks the business.

Designed to combine the coolness of an open face helmet with the protection of a full face, the Trigger FF is barely heavier than some of the weightier open face helmets on the market.

IXS launched their all-new Trigger FF full face helmet today and it might just have reset the bar for how light a full face helmet can be. By recommended head size, it is the lightest on the market. At 600g for the S/M size it’s a featherweight and almost in heavy open face helmet territory.

Weights do rise as the sizes go up, but most full face helmets will, unless the shell size remains the same and the padding is thinner as a result. Not an ideal situation…

In any case, despite it’s low weight, the Trigger has not skimped on the technology. You get a full in-mold EPS liner with integrated XFrame crash cage for increased frontal impact protection.

With the ErgoFit ratchet and FidLock strap, you should be able to fine tune the broad size range to suit your loaf.

Ventilation is handled by IXS’ Vortex system which has five large intakes combined with seventeen exhaust ports to try and match an open face helmet for ventilation.

VentMesh padding has been spread evenly over the inner to provide a uniform fit and ease any soreness on the head. Cheek pads are also removeable to fine tune the fit.

The visor is also adjustable and combines with a goggle gripper to keep everything in place.

Keep an eye out for a test on the Trigger FF on Wideopenmag soon.
