Not that quickly I'm afraid mate as have to get it rubber stamped before being able to sell them to the public as detailed above. The other style is available though and in stock

New traditional helmet turned up this morning and looks very nice! 1st prototypes so a bit of work to do of them yet, 1st impressions are good though but then I'm slightly biased! lol

Yeah that was the plan to bring it back a touch from the modern design so that people wouldnt be so image consoius when wearing it.

Will take some photos shortly....could be a worldwide forum exclusive peek lol

yeah, although i respected the time, effort and innovation that had gone in to making the helmet lighter i probably wouldnt have worn one at risk of looking like a storm trooper :)

but with that tecnology behind conventional a helmet i think youve got a formula to go on and challenge the 'big 2' (albion and masuri)

best of luck

So this is one shape of helmet, and the helmet that your main man from Sri Lanka uses is the other shape?
Two different designs are great, but was curious if these were the only 2 styles you will be doing? Or are there any further ones in the design pipeline?

No further designs in the pipeline in afraid as investment in tooling for producing each different design is a factor to consider.

We gained feedback that people were more comfortable wearing a more traditional looking helmet so went back to the drawing board to see what we could come up with. Therefore we are looking to cater for both types of players who want a modern cutting edge design as well as the traditionalist who would like to appear as such.

To be fair, I think that the two main designs you have are both well thought out, well researched, and should cater for most tastes!
Will look forward to seeing them once they are in production!  8)

Apple....will explore this option when we have a few samples as we only have 2  at the moment to play around with and try out different finishes. Looking at a rubberised finish as used on mountain bikes and ice hockey sticks at the moment.

My personal view is that the cloth will only add weight to the helmet and be time consuming to add to the helmet when gluing into place etc and well as having to get the covers made on top of this.
