Ayrtek Blog..
« on: September 25, 2012, 01:53:09 PM »

Have a new blog set-up so that people can learn a little more about the Ayrtek brand and theory behind the helmet design etc as well as reading my mindless ramblings.....

I watched this http://ayrtekcricket.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/ayrtek-promo-video/ and transfered the chaps voice to Morgan Freeman and enjoyed it immensely

What always puzzles me about the Barker vid is obviously the fact he was wearing an Ayrtek softened the impact. as Bumble says compared to what happened the previous week with the ball going through the grill to Pollard it's easy to see the Ayrtek stood up far better.

So why then does does barker put on a Albion? Surely that defies the point?

Probably didn't have a spare ayrtek or grille in the hut...

Once a knock like that has occurred, surely a new helmet is needed.

Just like replacing a motorcycle helmet after a crash.

Price of a helmet is nothing compared to a broken head.

I am definitely getting an ayrtek for next season.

Just out of curiosity, did Barker give you any feedback, or have you had a look at the helmet to see how it stood up in the 'real world' situation?

I'm pretty sure there's a topic on here somewhere with that barker grill in it, with pictures taken by Tom.

Helmet is on the shelf in the office, will take a few new pics on Monday for the blog nice back in the office.

Featured the grille weld at the front but apart from that no other signs of damage. Spoke to keith and the quote he provided cant really be used in the public domain lol he was glad he had the lid on tho needless to say!

I used my ayrtek helmet in last game..even though i love my GN legend , Ayrtek felt nice
The only  thing i experienced was i was sweating more...one reason it was to hot ..90 F
not sure of it will be a good idea to have a removable towel kind of padding inside which can be washed and re-attached
just a thought ...and sorry of this was not the right post to discuss  it

Actually such thing already exist :)

Ayrtek offer soft removable padding, they can be easily applied and then peeled off (and washed). They come in a pack of four by Ayrtek, I have two spare which are brand new if you want I can post them to you, I won't need anything for them.

Just let me know :)
