    We just finished an A1 trail helmet for Peaty, that I really dig, he wanted it to have same vibe as his world championships D3, I will post pics by end of the day. Rad to see custom painted trail/open face helmets.

    I can't even visualize that and don't even really know what it means, I just know that it is without a doubt, the best thing ever posted on ridemonkey.

    I look forward to using it on a regular basis and visualizisng butt motorboating.

    Let's see it Stik!
    Bring back the 'Golden Era' of the open face/XC helmet, alas in-mold nowadays.

    Nice one... I remember well the days when custom xc lids were common... much more personality than today.

    This was my favorite:

    Sometimes to be asked for a race team doesn't have all the perks to go with it...


    The Horror:
    - drips in basecoat
    - droops in lacquer
    - overspray on trimmings, EPS liner, dual density liner
    - painted over chin strap rivet, duct mesh
    i.e. a cleared over vinyl bodge job!


    Hilmit Doctor to The Rescue:
    - strip the Daytona 3 altogether
    - glass bead clean the duct meshings
    - sand it clean to reveal the carbon base again


    Cleaned the dual density liner.


    Simple pearlwhite 'dirtjumper' style logos as per client instructions. #basecoat



    Lacquered and good to go.


    Details.

    Just painted this for BMX champ Sam Willoughby; it is our new black on black D3 Carbon, matte, but we had Jay in the paint shop lay down some white pins. Quick job.

    I'm not retired per-se...but it's not my full time job anymore. I still paint on the side, but haven't done mountain bike helmets in awhile. Here are a few..
