If you are looking for a new helmet for Downhill Skateboard I have great news from the market one new company from Germany started to produce some models in March ready to sale (2 models) but in the future this company will produce 4 different models, check the pictures below, the website will be online soon as possible.
Check the pictures from the inside liner really great and safe.
News February 29:
This new German product is a aerodynamic subsidiary, I cant label it a Helmet ............ it is not legally allowed.
The protection of my product will be better than any hang glider or other aerodynamic product in the international trade.
Im skateboarding since more than 30 years and do downhill skateboarding since 99.
With my good friends luis lins and andreas donhauser, a sculptor, we started developing this product in winter 2007.
After many essays and prototypes we can provide now the risch aerohelmets.
Every owner has to sign a contract that this product is only for use as aerodynamic subsidiary.
All this products have a safe foam ( middle soft ) inside, the foam does have a memory effect. the foam is minimum 2,5 cm / 6 inch thick !
The foam allows me that one size fits all , every customer will get some extra foam if it doesn't fit.
The foam is covered with a breathable 3D mash.
The internal helmet is fixed with a Velcro fastener.
The visor is anti fog and anti scratch coated.
The visor is form-locking and fixed from the inside with a Velcro fastener and fixed around with a curve tape.
The helmets have all 4 layers of fiberglass, each layer 293 g/qm
The outher helmets (only the light speed and doris day), have 2 layers of fiberglass, that means in a crash they are flexible!
The breech is a German product and guaranteeing tensile strength, the chin strap is as well covered with the 3D mash (German product).
The price for the helmet is a ready mounted and fixed. the helmet comes with a filler coat (that means ready to paint for a painter).
I can do the painting, its 120€ extra(every color, I only need the color specification )
The helmet is handmade, that means small production differences.
Model nr. 1 " wave " is 420,- €
Model nr. 2 " light speed " 530,- € , with internal helmet. no breakaway system!
Model nr 3 " doris day " 580,- €, with internal helmet. no breakaway system! pictures coming 12th of march 2008.
All the 3 models are for sale at the end of march, delivery time will be 3 weeks.
More models coming ............. ask for custom product with your concept, maybe you have a brilliant idea or a idea for improvement.
cheers stephan risch and luis lins
