Most certainly. Would it be cloth covered?

Cloth covering is an option yes but ideally straight out of the mould as a colour to save weight and another assembly process being required.

Some but with the cost involved in new tooling and the fact the current one hasnt caused any major cause for complaint it wasnt high up the priority list TBH.

my thoughts are that we should look back to the dawn of the cricket helmet and invest in ultra lightweight and strong see through protective face materials  mirroring the old Perspex face guards. complete vision , no grills

Tom , i abstained from voting ! :D
Basically i like the looks of the rad helmet  (as you know, i have two).
I think the trad looks with air liner would sell - when teammates see mine they are always intrigued and impressed. Most hate the rad helmet shape though....so give them what they want huh !?!.
Me personally , i love the carbon look and my main needs are super lightweight and comfort....so ive no need to change. But if a trad arytek with air liner came out and was the same weight and had the same or better ventilation then id consider it .

I'd be very interested mate, and one for the boy if you did youth ones.

Thanks all for feedback so far, new helmets take a bit longer than a new bat design to bring to market due to safety testing and a certificate of conformity being required.

If there is a definate appetite (which there seems to be) then ill look into the project a bt further as it's likely I will need to do some crowd funding for it (Ive just spent a fair bit building a new home office to work from and had a 2nd baby) to help with fast tracking its progress.

Would this be something worth pursuing if people could for example "invest' in obtaining one of the 1st off the production line for a upfront payment?

Realistically there will be 3 models if going down the AYR route with prices in line with what the RRP's are currnetly on the range, whilst id love to bring them down a little the cost of using the air liner isnt cheap to manufacture:-

1.Carbon Fibre with Ti grille
2.Plastic with Ti grille
3.Plastic with Steel grille

Ive had several stereos and were my choice of helmet. But Ive always ran your eps lined ones as just didnt get on with the airliner.

End of last year I switched to stumping and struggled for vision with the ayrtek when stood up, but borrowing a masuri(new os2 thing) I really got on with it.


The new design with a non airliner lining would interest me.

Hahahahah.

How about a new innovative, re-designed grill that improves visibility and allows batsman to play balls close to body without tilting head too much (if you roll your eyeballs downwards, grill gets in the way). :)
