    Every new DH helmet that comes out on the market makes me wanna puke. Can we please go back to rebadging awesomeness and selling it as your brand?

    Kabuto
    Kali
    POC
    Giro
    Bell
    IXS
    TSG
    URGE

    ....friggin endless list of ugly crap coming out with every new feature, curve and bulge known to man.

    Just re-badge TLD. Do not want.

    And to the buying public...stop encouraging them by buying these fugly face condoms!!!

    Agreed! Hate-on!


    Also - just for fun, can someone please punch Windows 8 in the face?

    Steal every good idea that Apple had, and then muck it up with clunky blahzay interface. YAY!


    Thank god for *nix

    To be fair I like the OGK Kabuto... All others listed, :| esp. the new Kali they featured at the Taipei bike show. I have no idea why...

    Couldn't agree more. Saw that new Kali lid and its utter crap, just what I've come to expect from them. I do have to say the new Bell helmet isn't so bad. And the Kabuto isn't my absolute least favorite, its a blatant TLD ripoff so it has to have some endearing qualities haha But **** what happened to a solid moto-esque full face? The Fox v3r was good, the new Rampage carbon is good, D3 is good. Other than that, wouldn't be caught dead in any of those other nasty things

    Its been duly taken care of, its like someone disabled the touch screen on an ipad and decided to release it, why? Especially irksome when you're using the mouse pad on a laptop.

    Is this a thread where we can complain about anything?

    Does anyone race BMX anymore? Or has BMX become just a bizarre freestyle fashion show? Shouldn't they call it BFMX?

    mehhh why not. BMX has definitely become a fashion show. What happened to the OG's like Mirra, Nyquist, Kagy, all the real riders. They are still around, but they sure don't make em like they used to.

    On the topic of fashionz, FMX is the ultimate stage for bro fashionz. Talk about some serious ****in metrosexuals. Yeah you gotta respect the ramp skills, they are doing some pretty insane stuff. But FACK they give moto a bad image. I also have no respect for ramp tramps, get some real skills on the track or in the hills you fashionable faggots.

    Have to agree on this one. Just bought a new computer last weekend. Windows 8 is not impressing me like I had hoped it would. Why the f*ck would windows completely change how you navigate around.

    On the flip side I am loving the power of the new machine, never been able to watch videos in HD with out locking up my old computer up

    Whats even worse than all the fugly helmets, is when someone has a nice helmet like a D3 and decides to run the visor in the LOWEST POSITION. Not acceptable. Even Sam Hill couldnt pull that look off.

    Edit: Or wearing sunglasses with ANY full face

    I don't see why this is so bad?

    Would you rather this?

    Don't see what makes TLD so great, they just borrowed most of their "look" from the auto industry among other places (like fin on top ala BMW) and added disgusting graphics. They didn't do anything new and exciting.

    I would rather have something else just to not have a TLD lid like every other 15 year old in neon PJ's. Variety is good.

    In case you need to throw up in your mouth a bit.....

    Hey, I found my Moto III a big improvement. Rather liked My original Star for protection but the eye port was too small for the smallest women's goggle even . . .

    You"ll love Cedrics new helmet brand then!

    http://www.triridemtb.com/gracia-signs-airoh-helmets/

    Dont really see the big deal for the hate myself.

    Im digging the Bell 9
    Better fit and comfort than the D3, like some of the innovative features like mag pass istead of dome clips ins too.

    It's amazing what you can find on the streets of Taipei for around $30. Pull down face shield optional.

    So TLD pj designs are now good? The fads on RM change to fast even for my hipster persona. Time to start making leather helmets. Haven't been popular for a while, it's time they were the **** again.


    btw. I run my visor low.

    Have a look at that pic, give me an idea what you want, and tell me how big your fat head is and I'll see what I can do. I have guests coming in April who can just bring it back with them and mail it, probably faster than sending it through the diplomatic mail service. I cannot promise that I won't wear it once first for the knee pad product test photos I have to take in the next few weeks.

    I have to say that the MX-Helmets some riders had the last couple of seasons look fugly because they are way to big and chunky. Especially Danny and Gee looked retarded.
