Title: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on February 01, 2010, 11:31:10 AM
Got to knock these up this week to send out thought I would give a little preview of the shells before they undergo spraying etc before delivery.....

Stage one....raw state shells
(http://i444.photobucket.com/albums/qq167/tom_ayrtek/rawshell2.jpg)
Stage Two....Sprayed shell.....Blue and Red (any guesses as for where they are going yet?)
(http://i444.photobucket.com/albums/qq167/tom_ayrtek/sprayedshells.jpg)

Next stage is is a sorting out the graphics to go onto them and putting together all the parts such as chin strap, liner, initials etc. before boxing them up for dispatch to their destination.

id guess to the ipl
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: petehosk on February 01, 2010, 11:53:56 AM
I think the Kiwi one would have been black...not blue.
So I am with stubbz on this one - ipl would be my first guess too!

hasn't trego been a bit of a journeyman? i expect the somerset one was kept for posterity while he whiled away time in kent/middlesex 2nd XIs ... still a long time if true :)

From what I've seen Trego seems to be flogging most of his kit on Ebay!

Spot on Mr Cricket....hes had 4/5 helmets now I think a couple with the 4 vent design and then the rest with 12 vents...couple of other Sri Lanka players also wear them though as well though so got to send a couple of others out as well.

Will stick up a couple of pics of the finished articles before they leave.

Id be suprised if hes had a helemt for 12 yrs unless hes become somewhat attached to it! County clubs have a budget to buy in their kit with as far as i know and players are issued helmets as aprt fo this deal.

im sure i saw this! it was on sky sports during a championship match in the summer they were looking in players lockers as a lunchtime feature and tregs whipped out his lid and said how he had never changed it lol

Tom, are you applying the graphics in vinyl, or are they painted on?
Title: Re: This weeks helmets

Fattus little from section A little from section B mate. All depends on the design to be honest and what will look best.

Good find Tom....Kaushalya Weeraratne or UKW as I know him from doing the helmets. Top run scored in this tournament and hit the most 6's as well! Hopefully will secure a place in the one day side off the back of this performance.

In regards to this weeks helmets...were into the realms of metallic gunmetal grey for a South Africa under 19's player who is in the High Performance Centre (HPC).

so you have any examples of non shiny lids> or is it part of your strategy for the batsman to put off the blower with the sun reflecting off the lid into his eyes??!! ;)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on March 05, 2010, 11:51:33 AM
On the rare occasion that the sun does come out over here?!? lol yeah can always matte them back if requested/required. Think they just look a bit "bling" when the camera catches them i think!

Both our ACIS helmets have the same liner in both the Elite and Premier model, the only difference is the exterior shell which is made from E-glass in the Premier and Carbon Fibre in the Elite.

Hope that helps to explain things....

You looked into branching out into other sports with your helmet systems?

A similar inflation protection system is widely used in american football, especially in the NFL

Hopefully one day games as well mate not sure tbh as yet will endeavour to find out though :)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets

Good exposure, and glad to seem them actually wearing them instead of ditching them once you left the ground
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 09, 2010, 09:36:12 PM
Think it helps that they came to us as well as being willing to pay for them!
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Colesy on June 09, 2010, 09:38:22 PM
I was wondering what deal was struck. Sounds very good!
I'll hopefully watch the next Warwickshire game instead of watching our youths lose

Yeah top stuff thomas looked pretty mint!

Made me laugh with bell going from the masuri (lower sitting) to the ayrtek (higher sitting), he spent forever pushing it down onto his head, which is exactly what i did when i got mine in that position, probably the only cricketing similarity me and bell will ever share :D

But seriously great stuff and many many comments made up at the ground where i had training so they're getting noticed!
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 10, 2010, 09:06:35 AM
Cheers lads nice to get them out there and in bigger numbers..the comments always make me laugh tho about cycle helmets etc...design with purpose im telling you...honest ;)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: SillyShilly on June 10, 2010, 09:10:40 AM
Looked awesome Tom, i would imagine they involved a few late nights, lots of hassle but great satisfaction when you sat down and watched them in use - great to see!
Have you tried to sort anything out with the Somerset and Gloucester boys?
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 10, 2010, 09:24:20 AM
few at glos have (Lewis and Kirby) them but would be good to sort out the local county sides with a custom design lid to tie in with their T20 or one day kit etc.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets

They were absolutley stunning on ty. My mum even said they looked good, she rates them higher on looks than a traditional helmet.

Looks like you are in the big time now, eh! I wouldnt be surprised if other county teams went for a local brand like Ayrtek over Masuri and Albion tbh. There is no way the latter brands would have got custom helmet made up in time like you did tom. Well done!

Any news on Bell's spikes? looks like there is no colour on the top and a small red bit on the soles
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 11, 2010, 08:11:41 PM
Cheers mate....dont know about big time as yet...haha yeah 3 day turaround of 10 custom lids was good fun all part of the job though....another 5 to go up there yet next week to complete the squads.

Hopefully seems they have no issue getting used to wearing them when scoring 200 runs in 20 overs...shame that game wasnt on sky instead of somerset vs hampshire low run fest :( would love to see highlights of 415 runs in 40 overs!!

How comes trott didnt use one in the televised game? is he as picky over his helmets as he is taking guard :)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 14, 2010, 12:10:43 PM
He wore one yesterday when making his 42...in fairness i had only dropped them up at 1pm on wednesday for the game on Sky Sports and they started at 7pm so he may have wanted to wer it in the nets etc before a game, however all the others seemed to get on ok with them and Trott now has his on too so all's good!
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: iand123 on June 14, 2010, 12:26:53 PM
ah ok, very good news. Hopefully for you guys, people like bell and trott would like them and use them in test cricket. The official helmet of the 2010/2011 ashes series has a certain ring to it :)

btw Tom i went to middlesex surrey at lords yesterday, ended up close to the dug out and i have to say im loving the mongoose pads, nice traditional front then the side panels  8) 8) 8)
unfortunately(cant believe i just said that!) we won by nine wickets so he didnt bat :(
not that he can at the moment :D

ooooh!
last post was to Mongoose Tom, this is to Ayrtek Tom  :D
are the warwicks boys wearing them for the county championship? if so there could be a fair bit of exposure if a short-leg was wearing one, he'll mostly be in the screen and is bound to cop one on the lid sometime! ;)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: peplow on June 18, 2010, 05:55:22 PM
Cant imagine them wearing gold ones in the county championship, i suppose it depends whether they feel its a t20 helmet, as they contacted you didnt they tom? Or you could even give the traditional ones to them ;) if they are ready to go for championship. Could be great exposure!!!
Title: Re: This weeks helmets

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: peplow on June 18, 2010, 06:03:01 PM
yeah i thought you were asking if they'd wear those ones, as they approached tom and payed for them i think, where as if tom just gave the helmets to them and they chose to wear them it would be easier to give them more in hope they'd wear them in county matches ;) if you see what i'm saying alex ;)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 18, 2010, 07:02:51 PM
Will have to see what they say as the approached us for a personalised designed helmet to match thei shirt, hopefully they will wear them in their one day games but guessing they won't for the 4 day game when back in traditional whites.

Think the Ayrtek brand went 1-0 up on the mongoose there tommo ;) there will be ample opportunity to get even I'm sure!

Well trott has scored 40+ since wearing it and 70+ tonight so he seems happy with His OCD ness and his new lid. Think the fact they can wear any grill that they fancy has helped as some want it sitting close to their face and others want it as far away as possible so everyone is happy!
Title: Re: This weeks helmets

Yeh both those grills fit our helmets so are fully adaptable to the grill they are comfortable with! Did want a ti grill for senior trott and bell the other day but seems peeps weren't willing to give something back to their world cup winners ;)

Let me know when you next conquer a county! my grill needs to see runs somehow, otherswise its cruelty to grills surely!

Its a well trained grill though my friend so should fetch a lot! i've classically conditioned my grill to not like ducks! (for the psychology students out there ;) bit of pavlovs dogs) Therefore perfect for any budding county player!

Sounds like a lonely hearts column! ^

o.k then peppers ;) thats your new name by the way :D
i think you will find, if you read the dangerous book for dogs that the dogs were famous scientists among the dog world and actually conditioned pavlov to feed them when the dribbled! ;)

sorry to carry this on, nice ian bell pic ;)
They werent conditioned to dribble when fed, thats just an unconditioned response, when they added a neutral stimulus, the bell, to the unconditioned stimuli the dog learnt to associate the food with the bell and so dribbling became a conditioned response to the conditioned stimulus, the bell.

But that is an interesting point on conditioning pavlov, maybe macheveilian intelligence in non human animals! But thats a whole new chapter and we wont go there!
I like peppers!!

Tom are all these pics going on the website??

TOM! when i umpired at squareleg a bit today, someone mentioned the helmets he'd seen in the T20, needless to say i put him off by boring him to death all about the materials, why its shaped like it is and how much more prtective and light and awesome ayrteks are, but it was a pleasant surprise to hear!

This was a sample grill that was sent to us from our manufacturers but it leaves the gap between peak and grill to wide...as all our other grills went to the Warwickshire squad I'm awaiting a new batch....so I put this one on to snap a pic.

Glad u like the look umz :)

Ear pads are masuri ones which fitted into the grill pretty well

Post by: umz_786 on July 15, 2010, 08:15:09 PM
Im no physics genius but i think that 'A' design will hold up the structure better than the 2 fragmented 'I's on the masuri grille - its like why bikes use triangles and not squares

Tom, on saturday i played against an ayrtek! It was darkish green with a silver/white line down the ridge i think. Unfortunately he got a golden duck and kicked his bat all the way to the changing rooms!
Our keeper said "here comes a stormtrooper" when he saw it - if it wasnt his birthday i would have told him off and spouted the techy stuff from your site to him.
it looked a little bulkier in real life and a little less unusual surprisingly  8) 8) 8)

Just a quick update....one of our customers in South Africa who had a customised helmet has been asked to net with the Royal Bangalore Challengers. Hes a promising young talent and playing for South Africa under 19's already so keep an eye out for him....In the practice 20/20 he smashed 47 off 28 and 40 from 25 so may get a look in the IPL yet and his name is Mat Pillans :)

Hi Tom

Just a thought but have you looked into a rubberised matt finish similar to the GM Purist pro lids? Im not sure how expensive it is to do these but I think the shape of the Ayrtek Lids would really suit it.

 :DI'm currently deciding what design I would have on my own Ayrtek thinking along the lines of Bottle green and Gold pinstripe (to match our team colours) :D ;)

Title: Re: This weeks helmets

I wouldnt know where to start when designing mine, the possibilities are endless :)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on September 17, 2010, 01:01:34 PM
We looked at a rubberised finish to them but these marked easily and showed scratches etc after a short period of use so we went for the finish provided now :)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: TheBoyLegend on September 17, 2010, 01:39:28 PM
Yup can vouch for the marking etc My GM is a bit of a mess (Although I do kinda like it a little bit the whole "Battle hardened look!!)

It was just a thought as I sat here in the office watching the ODI (busy day here) thinking I wonder if any of the boys will roll out rocking the Ayrtek Lids??

Post by: mattw on September 17, 2010, 02:05:02 PM
haha, well its the typical small against a big club mentality :)

it should be a good game in all as Somerset definately deserve something this season being runners up in the championship and t20 but Warwickshire are probably the form side in the county game at the moment.

It would be good to see if they're all still using their ayrteks - it'll be good advertisement for ayrtek if they are, live on sky and infront of a packed lords crowd.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: petehosk on September 17, 2010, 02:14:26 PM
I am a Hampshire lad. But when I look at it, I guess I would prefer Somerset to win.

I feel they've been the best team this year, and keep on coming close - T20 finalists, Division 1 runners up, and if they are the losing pro40 finalists too then it's less than they deserve!
In other words Somerset deserve some reward for their hard work really!

This particular customer has a son who is struggling to find any helmet that fit him properly due to the fact he has a head size of 63cm.

Isn't it the gap on the grille? You can change the adjustment no? (The gloves have definitely come off haha)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on October 31, 2010, 01:07:20 PM
the gap between the peak and grill can be adjusted but the plastic peak will still flex and widen the gap when hit like that due to the materials being used to make the shell..


The gloves arent off..its just a discussion which the forum is all about and enlightening people as to how/why some products work and some are far less effective
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Lekka Global Alliance on October 31, 2010, 01:08:55 PM
I think Thomas maybe referring to a poor grill selection position by the batsman in the mentioned photo.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on October 31, 2010, 01:10:23 PM
the gap can be set to the 55mm BSI specified but the peak will then flex when hit and the ball will go through it still due to the fact the plastic used to make them is the same as whats used to make washing up bowls from
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: johan95 on October 31, 2010, 01:11:25 PM
Ok point taken. It seemed a bit heated earlier on, but I guess it was just banter! Yeah you're right Tom, the grill position isn't very clever.. :|
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on October 31, 2010, 01:14:23 PM
James and i are used to verbal jousting mate dont worry!

As stated above the grill position isnt clever but the structural rigidity of the helmet still would more than likely not keep the ball out....get a plastic helmet and try bending the peak and you'll see what im getting at
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Lekka Global Alliance on October 31, 2010, 01:15:32 PM
tbh , there appears to be a flaw in the standard where the grill is allowed to be positioned in 3 different settings. Albion as a market leader for some years have seen top players like Ponting being injured more than once.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: johan95 on October 31, 2010, 01:16:55 PM
tom, out of interest do your helmets only allow the grill to be positioned in one setting..?
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on October 31, 2010, 01:18:46 PM
This was why our 2009 grill was designed with only 2 gap settings of 45mm and 55mm.....as discussed with someone this week they couldnt understand why there are otehr options that allow a bigger gap that a ball could fit through to be left.

The darren maddy video is the worst i have seen when facing broad in Dubai.....

The mold in use can also be pumped with other materials so PP would be classed as a basic component.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on October 31, 2010, 01:21:04 PM
as its prob not a CA....dont believe everything that you see/read...its very easy to sticker up a bat that is manufactured somewhere else.

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on October 31, 2010, 01:26:30 PM
They allow a variety of setting so that the grille can be positioned according to the person wearing the helmet...45mm and 55mm gap between peak and grille are included hence why only one slot is present on the front of the grille

there is a min distance specified in the BSI standard that the grille is meant to be set in regards to distance from the face as well so this needs to be catered for too.

Some really good close ups of him wearing it. The Aussies were edging for fun and he was stood up to the wicket. It looked completely removed. I watched in Hd but didn't get too close to the screen as the mrs would of wondered what I was doing!

Johan, the reason I mentioned it as it is free publicity for toms company. If anyone is watching the game and liked to get one they would probably type in google ayrt k and they would never find the helmet.

My lid. Transparent logo to be added in due course to remove white border.
Plain, simple but very effective I think. May go for something extreme/unique next year.
Looking forward to wearing it now  :D

Have now tried on the Ayrtek with the standard grill and am having the same problem - the grill doesn't cover my chin, more sits on the front of my face. I too have a large head.... Will try with the masuri grill, then see whether I need to get an Albion...

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on February 02, 2011, 11:36:17 AM
thats a very good question....well Sri lanka will be in the mix, perhaps Holland if they use this sample they have asked for but they are signed upto Albion.

Title: Re: This weeks helmets

back to the raw shell colour
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on February 10, 2011, 09:56:11 AM
its difficult to do in all honesty to guarentee a 100% perfect finish as it means stripping off the paint thats already on it which may lead to a few scuffs etc.....refurb cost is 45.00 though
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Simmy on February 10, 2011, 10:10:35 AM
yeah i wouldnt have thourght the raw shells are laqured from factory after the resin has been applied. so possibly would not be very pretty.

Word from the head of the Kenyan Cricket Board is dissident rebels are just cutting open the ACIS gloves and stuffing them with opium.

if thats the case they can send them back as they will have gone up quite significantly in value when stuffed with opium!!

Yes. Can now say that more than one international player uses my helmet. Soon the chat will all be gone :D - hope I can pull in a few orders for you from our club Tom btw, but can't guarantee anything as people might be concerned about the price. All I say is that your head has to be kept safe, and your helmet does the best job of it ;)

Leo i am a midget i just do not seem to get any stick i get more stick for my accent.


But i guess it helps being able to play i guess ability could stop people talking when your batting as you can not judge a player on his kit...

I thought they were ugly at first but i think even the most traditional people look at them differently now


Love the color of the nike boots in the picture

Haven't had anything when using it in games. Cause I only got it about a month ago lol. I get some abuse in the nets, but it's wearing off now. :) Doubt people will be chatting about it much though. In fairness, I may get the Sangakkara, as I am Sri Lankan and look vaguely like him, apart from the fact I can't bat as well and am Right Handed :D

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on February 12, 2011, 09:10:10 PM
Technically it would fall under the custom helmet category as it's not a stock colour and has crest and graphics added to it as well.

Still have a few spare crests though so maybe able to do it for the elite price as per the website

James Taylor is a bit more than quite useful... in fact I think he is closer to seriously good...

And when you are as short as he is, you need a good lid!

I'd agree with you mate, dont tell him that tho lol top lad as well.....even though he did wake me up with his tweet at 1:30 am this morning!!!....his nickname isnt Titch without reason  :D

Would like them to score a few more runs as would all help with the coverage :)

we got told that the Indian companies are snapping up the unsponsored players once they get to the hotels by offering them free kit and a few bob so not surprising that anyone who doesn't have a major sponsorship contract is now using SS, BAS, RBK etc etc

Yeah im sure it will continue to rise as the tournament progresses as well with the minnow countries getting exposure if they get down the final stages :( feel sorry for H4L when people like Big Benn ditch them to use another bat after they supply the with kit...im sure he will come back later though!

we got told that the Indian companies are snapping up the unsponsored players once they get to the hotels by offering them free kit and a few bob so not surprising that anyone who doesn't have a major sponsorship contract is now using SS, BAS, RBK etc etc

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on February 24, 2011, 09:28:59 PM
The new ones we sent were being held hostage in customs but are now delivered, je kept in ome though so perhaps was wanting a new one to bat in ???

Title: Re: This weeks helmets

albion grill

thought so Dave, why is this?
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on March 05, 2011, 10:58:39 AM
personal preference, hes had ti version of the albion grille of us our 2009 ti grille and the 2010 ti grille but seems to prefer an albion steel grille ???

each to their own....last thing u want is someone not being able to wear the helmet as the grille doesnt suit their head shape though so helps that every grille fits our helmet :D

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: procricket on March 05, 2011, 11:15:00 AM
right i have a question

last one honest

is it possible to get more vents cut in a helmet that started off as a original one...

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on March 05, 2011, 11:20:00 AM
yeah but would need the trim jig and the right tools to cut through carbon fibre and kevlar which is pretty tough :)

i dont mind the questions mate all part of the job...just be aware im on double time as it saturday tho which equates to a pint and a pack of peanuts ;)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets

Had an outdoor session today in mine. Our fastest bowler bowled a beamer at me and it just missed my head by a fraction. I was glad I was wearing an Ayrtek in case i didnt duck in time.

Its amazing how excepted they now are. Nobody at my club said a word to me about my helmet good or bad

Surrey definately wasn't the raw carbon with green, it seemed to just be a blue one with a crest on. Northants was a maroon one with crest. I think i might have a pic or two i can put up if you want?

Not sure yet at Somerset a few were keen tho when we went down to see them, they have asked for a sample so that they can give it a try....similar to the Derby boys who had 2..... but now the 2 lads who first got hold of the wont pass them on for others to try lol

On a far more important note, your helmet is causing a big stir at Chertsey CC (far more important litmus test than any county I feel).

People keep crowding round Roco Da Pixie's to coo over it and touch it - reckon we'll sell a few there - need to put the third stump logo on it though!

Tom, is there any reason why KS is wearing an albion grill with his ayrtek helmet? I've only just noticed this whilst watching the IPL (im a little behind than realtime as I got in late and I'm recording it) and he's keeping wicket with an albion grill, did you have to modify it for him?

I don't know whether he's using it to bat, or even if he's batting yet.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on April 11, 2011, 04:38:33 PM
hes in to bat now mate, its just personal preference as to what he likes having sent him every type of grille we have made to him.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: roco on April 11, 2011, 04:49:26 PM
Maybe he has a big head as Ayrtek dint cater for the larger gentlemen just these tiny southerners

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on April 11, 2011, 06:47:23 PM
Yeah the lads at SCS nearly tore our arm off when we told them our prices for a Ti grille lol

Well from trying them on the current one had 1 finger between tge grille and my chin and new one allows 3 fingers to cater for u big buggers!! That was on tge normal setting tho not the furthest forward

I think they were the Surrey Lions in the short competitions last year with Black Gear, maybe the Brown helmet is the traditional one, so to speak, for the 4 day version of the game. I'm down there tomorrow so I will ask one of the people at the Indoor Nets and see if they know :)

It's got a white surrounding so that it stands out hard to tell in the pic I know

Ok, sure I'll be able to pick it up on HD when they play.

Did you get a chance to do those pads?

Post by: alexrickyponting on April 25, 2011, 07:58:28 PM
Sangakkara apparently played a game at my club when he was in the sri lanka "A" set up or something. I'm told that he hit a six off the back foot with pretty much a defensive shot that went straight back over the bowlers head and that he hit the same bowler on to the bank next to a nearby bridge. A hit between 107 and 137 metres depending on where it landed and which wicket it was from. I have a feeling that some exageration may have occured on the part of my source  8)

Yeah not a great track by the sounds of it the cricinfo article said a ball shot off a length and went 10ft over the keepers head!!!!

Bit of a hairy moment when u hear of someone getting hit in you product i can assure you! thankfully he is fine but got a bit of a headache. it turned out he got hit where we couldnt offer him and protection as such due to him turning away from the ball.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on May 14, 2011, 10:32:58 AM
From cricinfo.....

This game will be remembered more, however, for the sight of a highly-skilled, highly-experienced batsman clutching his head after ducking into a short-ball from Boyd Rankin. In truth, Solanki did not play the delivery terribly well, turning his head on the ball, and taking the blow just below the ear in an area unprotected by his helmet. The ball may well not have misbehaved, either, but Solanki was, understandably, reluctant to trust the capricious pitch and failed to commit to the shot he might have played in other circumstances. Thankfully, X-rays showed no serious injury and Solanki returned to the ground in the evening. He should be able to bat on the final day.
Title: Re: This weeks helmets

Definitely saw Arul Suppiah wearing one on sunday for all you doubters out there :p lol
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 08, 2011, 07:29:44 PM
Yes Suppiah does use one of ours, we havent actively approached any players as in doing so it will prompt them to ask for money to use the product.

We have been around to the majority of the counties and showed them how the product and technology within it works. Off the back of this its only 5 out of the 18 that dont have at least 1 helmet in their set-up (4 counties which we haven't seen yet).

Post by: johan95 on June 08, 2011, 08:07:51 PM
Which counties are those, out of interest? :) - Obviously if you can't discuss this then don't worry.
Btw how much is an end-of season refurb of a helmet. Perhaps even mid-season - mine's seen a lot of use already!

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on June 22, 2011, 04:21:41 PM
Evolve or Die.....things have moved forward in regards to all other sports and equipment so why cant cricket helmets as well?

Effectively the helmet design hasn't changed in over 14 years so we thought it was about time it was addressed and moved forward.

It looks different for a reason and that reason is improved safety over the other helmets that are available on the market. :)
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Simmy on June 22, 2011, 04:25:41 PM
ive only had stick from about 2 other teams and one of them was jesus them lids are well expensive!

had all the jokes from my own team but (No Swearing Please) them i feel awsome in the lid. and it looks awsome

Matt is probably a decent cricketer, he used to be decent at most sports as a youngster, I remember playing hockey against him when he was 17 and he was very good.....

yeah i read somewhere that he was an international quality hockey player but turned to rugby when his hockey career couldn't go any further.

don't quite know why he didn't choose rugby from the start because he is a unit and definately someone i don't want to see on a rugby field.

Matt wasn't as built as he is now when he was playing hockey, his parents were keen hockey players so I guess he was just following a natural path until he got serious about Rugby and bulked up.

In regards to our business model i dont have to disclose any of it as its our business not anyone else's....perhaps i should start our Global Alliance and refer to us in quotation marks so it makes it seem like i have to answer to a higher power...God perhaps!

8th over: England 24-1 (Trott 9, Taylor 0) The new batsman is the debutant James Taylor. He is tiny he looks like a jockey has a Kumar Sangakkara-style helmet, and is possibly the most talked-about young English batsman since Ian Bell. He digs out a decent yorker second ball. "I wouldn't worry about Colm," says Tom Cochrane, "he's probably just pissed and knows not what he says."

Tom - you should email the guardian - rob.smyth@guardian.co.uk and tell them about the lid!

11.40am Since you asked, here's a bit more information on James Taylor's helmet, from Tom Milsom of Ayrtek. "We have supplied a fair few county pros and international players with helmets this year due to an increased awareness of injuries within the game. We are a UK based company (in Bristol) that has innovated the cricket helmet design to make it safer, stronger and lighter. The helmets that the professionals are wearing are made from carbon fibre and Kevlar and feature our unique liner that is inflated and deflated via the buttons you see on the rear of the helmets. With a new range due for launch in September were experiencing an increased demand for the product." We've been sent cake and gin of late, but it'd probably be pushing it to ask for a helmet for my nephew, wouldn't it. But generally we have no dignity here on the OBO, so feel free to send absolutely anything in and we will contrive to publicise it.


11.52am "Those Ayrtek lids look pretty nice," says Harry Tuttle. "Get some office freebies, Rob. Promise to give them away in a competition, but then 'forget', leave them in a cupboard for a few months and then snaffle them out in a rucksack."


Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on August 25, 2011, 11:11:32 AM
haha glad to see everyone's perception changing from the cycling helmet comments....when you explain they are designed with deflection in mind rather than absorption it does seem to help!

20th over of 42: England 86-2 (Trott 33, Morgan 33) Morgan opens the face and edges Cusack for four to end an otherwise quiet over. "The Ayrteks do indeed look nice, but surely the key test for any helmet is 'could you imagine Brian Close in it?'" says Robin Hazlehurst. "In which case the prize in your competition would still have to the same old polishing cloth for a top-notch shiny dome. Of course you could snaffle the helmets for prizes just in case Mr Close eventually turns out to be a wearer, and then lend them to yourselves, nephews etc in the meantime."

Shame Bairstow and Onions arent in the team as they would have plenty to compare the chrome dome too then!

Antiscuff peeling off of it as toe guard came off a while back I think :)

Cheers mate shame it wasn't a bit longer in the limelight but immensely proud to see it on a full England player I must admit :) things have moved forward over the last 24 months as I'm sure the older forum members will vouch for having tracked our progress since we started....hopefully a stepping stone in the right direction

Great game which would have been even more interesting if the rain had stayed away I think! Ireland can hold their heads high as they put in a great performance

Abdul Razzaq is second Pakistani to wear an Ayrtek helmet;


(http://www.espncricinfo.com/db/PICTURES/CMS/137300/137381.jpg)


First one being Wahab Riaz, am I right Tom?

I sincerely hope this is many to come in future, I think it would have been awesome if Tom you had sent Abdul Razzaq another helmet which was green and had a star with Pakistan written on it, I'm sure he would have worn it when playing for Pakistan again no doubt. And if had worn it then I'm sure the other boys would have asked for it, I know how they would react seeing this helmet :))

Are those kookaburra gloves in the pic?

Just noticed them and it made me think of how spooks on bbc1 used to always show sky news clips until someone noticed and they then switched to bbc news clips.

They are as Vikram is sponsored by them so didnt want to push it too far by uisng our softs etc...hence the rather obvious placement of our logo instead of the kook one on the bat

Ordered and paid Tom before going to bed (around 5 AM GMT) woke up at 1:22 PM GMT my helmet was already made as per my specs! Can't ask for a quicker service, it was like a blink of eyelid for me lol! Top top service by Tom, can't thank him much! Helmet looks amazing and brilliant! Loving it, can't wait to get it on my head! :D

Well I have finally got fed up of turning up for nets/games only to find my helmet has found its way into another family members kitbag  :)

So for this season they all have their own

Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on March 13, 2012, 12:49:55 PM
The 12 vent version was a ltd edition we did for CKS and this one was left over from that batch so Wes Durston had one and James Taylor had the other

Any particular reason you didn't carry on with that design?
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on March 13, 2012, 12:53:48 PM
As it took a lot more time to make them due to the extra time trimming out the vents and having to re-enforce the area locally compared to the normal 4 vent version.

Now that is a work of art...Toss up between Saf and Surrey for best looking so far.

Is the Saf one a premier or an elite Tom?
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on March 30, 2012, 12:31:48 PM
Is an Elite mate which was white but was refurbed to a matte black finish with the same decals we used on the Warwickshire helmets/Surrey one.

Yeh the contrast between the gloss and vibrant orange and the matte black shell goes well off each other, hopefully will inspire a few more customs as they are always fun to knock up :)

Making a fair school ones up of late but they are just club crest really rather than customs

It was really a dream experience, getting a custom made helmet is absolutely fantastic experience.

Tom was extremely extremely generous and helpful, he went out of his way and helped me.

I don't want to spoil the climax but once it is with me I will review it and show you guys, there are few surprises really.

Once again thanks a LOT Tom! I profusely appreciate it!

Also, the F1 designers should have come to you Tom. So you could show them how to sort out their ugly nose design. The drop down to the peak of you lid looks perfect!

I think it's Michael Carberry who plays for Hampshire (in the second picture), and the guy who's sponsored by Ayrtek is Jack Brooks he plays for Northamptonshire.

Does the magnetic clip make it easy to undo/do up? Only thing I dislike about my Ayrtek is it being a bit fiddly getting on and off when I'm keeping so if it does that would be very handy

Abdul Razzaq is second Pakistani to wear an Ayrtek helmet;


([url]http://www.espncricinfo.com/db/PICTURES/CMS/137300/137381.jpg[/url])


Was watching news and they showed glimpse of his batting in a domestic tournament (in Pakistan) where I spotted him with this helmet.

So he still loves his Ayrtek and wears it, good work Tom!

APologies it was so quick that I was not able to snap a shot :(

Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Johnny on August 01, 2012, 07:46:33 AM
Bairstow was to do with the fact he has a contract with Slaz. Does Bell normally wear an Ayrtek?

Since Adidas don't do helmets I reckon he will wear it. He's certainly been netting in it.

he has a warickshire one

At first I was a bit unsure of the look of Ayrtek lids, and I must say, I love 'em now!  Have to find a way to trash my current lid, so I can persuade the missus to buy one for an anniversary present!
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on August 14, 2012, 11:42:50 AM
Bairstow in contracted to Slaz who produce a helmet, Adidas have some link in with masuri i think but JT is very happy in his Ayrtek.

Bell and Trott both wore them for Warwickshire back in 2010 but since then i think Albion now provide helmets for the county. Would love to get them back on their heads but difficult when it comes at a cost :(
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: joeylough on August 14, 2012, 02:40:27 PM
Tom out of interest are there many players who come to you an ask for the helmets away from an agreement. Just so they have a helemt which offers better protection?

Or are most players more interested in the freebies and cold hard cash?
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: Ayrtek Cricket on August 14, 2012, 02:43:39 PM
hada few put our way through the ECb which was how we got them onto the up and coming England players such as Taylor, Bairstow, Harris etc.

Counties such as Warwickshire purchased a squads worth back in 2010 followed by Worcester in 2011, however our competitors have since gone in and given away product which as a small company we cannot afford to do at the moment. When players move from county to international level they become alot more appealing to sponsor due to the media spotlight :(
Title: Re: This weeks helmets
Post by: joeylough on August 14, 2012, 03:32:02 PM
So im guessing then at as a player at a county you tend to be given equipment from your county rather than serach for the gear youself. (sorry to go off topic) Personally I would search around for what suited me, until the big money came (I guess that type of mindset does not help the less funded but better equipment and customer care)

Been a bit snowed under of late but quick update on a few lids we have done this month....

Having won a competition with Kiss-Mix drinks company to jet out to La Manga and play golf and cricket with the Lords Taverners i thought the least we could do was donate a couple of helmets to the charity auction. Had a great time and played with the likes of Steve Kirby, Gareth Batty, Neil Smith, Daffy and Mike Gatting play golf they can certainly give it a drive!

Great that the helmets fetched a nice little sum at the auction too :)

Lastly is a lions lid for Azeem Rafiq for him to take on tour to India when he jets off in early November.

Little update on a few of this weeks orders..

These are off out to the US of A to Jason and also some non hammer branded Tinted RAW ones to Oz as well if any of our Aussie members are looking to get hold of one?

with tour to Yorkshire just under a month away i have finally got around to creating the Tour Helmet....this is ground breaking engineering and could save hours in the test matches with all the "drinks breaks" that are always taken!

Alternatively it could be used to see who can neck 2 bottles the fastest with the safety element of if you fall flat your face your protected to optimum levels.

This will soon be available in all good retailers*

*probably wont be available in any retailers

The BBL were in use but seems the powers that be deemed they didnt match the exact pantone colours required so had to stop being used, plus were not the official helmet sponsor of the tournament so puts us on the back foot a bit.

This is a sample that has been produced at their request :)

We have some Premier shells left in stock that we could use, also have some Carbo helmets that need a new home. Might be best to start a new thread for them.

If anyone is interested in the RAW happy to do it for standard price of 199.99 which includes P&P and any Initials until the end of November

Thats all his 2014 gear by the look of it. Pro players away from international cricket sometimes end up with their kit pretty late. Something that i am sure will change soon enough with the advent of year round franchise cricket that is broadcast in HD and slow motion to a worldwide fanbase.

A pair of samples sent to the Pakistan squad...a further 2 followed these so finger crossed they seem some use in the ODI/T20 games.
