Thanks for the feedback people, its a relief to hear most of it is positive with the exception of the air vents.

Would people be willing to pay 50-60 for one of these in either fibreglass or high impact plastic if they were lightweight and safer than the other brands of helmets?

Or for those who have deeper pockets 100 for a carbon fibre version which will be featherweight in this shape, but may only be prodcued for Professional/county players and special orders?

I feel that in comparison to other helmets on the market those prices are more than fair, and at the end of the day if your going to get grilled i would rather pay 20-30 more and not have to take a trip to A&E

New vent design...would be great to hear what you think as it up's vents from 4 to 12 on the 4 corner sections and add's a further 6 on the side.

OK, i gotta hand it to the Ayrtek people. That helmet is a beauty. And the inspiration in design is  great as well. Sharks fins, who'd have thought of it. I think that lid with the compact looking, Masuri style, grille will be excellent.

The design may well be the final but if I may add to your design development - how about using cloth or using a slightly rough texture to make it look like cloth? Grille pads would look extremely nice - silver or black would look sooo nice.

Will you incorporate ACIS on this design? and How much will it retail at?

Well done!

Thanks for the feedback chaps, minor things such as grille ear pads etc can all be added at a later date as they are easy enough to design and have made up.

I take it the majority of people prefer these to the earlier concept on page 1? The plan is to have the helmet launched with the ACIS technology and a PCS model which will be a cheaper alternative as well to cater for more of the market.

We will finalise the exact finish as well in terms of cloth/textured/rubber effect and what material we produce it in will ultimately effect the retail price as well so cant say as yet.

Get your names down for first ones off the production line lol

Helmet looks good but why the huge price hike for Carbon ?

Due to the cost of making a high end shell out of carbon fibre and kevlar. In any other sports such as Skiiing (200+), Equestrian (upto 900), and Mountain Biking (180.00) these are starter prices for any carbon fibre helmet product due to the nature of the composite and the benfefits of using it.

Due to the ceiling limit within cricket for the helmets this is the price required to make any margins.

I use the same composite but only costs me an extra US$5.00 , how can you justify these prices ? Dupont Carbon/Kevlar are the real deal.
