What began as the hobby of a motocross racing teenager named Troy Lee, painting helmets in his parents garage for his friends, has grown to become recognized as the premier custom helmet paint shop in the world. TLD is the place where "The World's Fastest Racers" go when only the best will do.
A Message from Troy
For over 30 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 complete line of helmets, apparel and premium protection for off-road motorcycling and bicycling, sportswear and accessories, and operating the TLD / Lucas Oil / Honda supercross and motocross team.
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 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,
- Troy Lee
