ID Annual – Smith Brim Helmet – Jackalope

This is a nice tweener positioned product statement right between the standard bike helmet aesthetic (zoomy fast) and the “I’m a rebel” military like snowboard helmets. The cool graphic lines seem to be missing on the production version. Oh well.

Would I wear it? Probably not as i don’t like fixed ear covers. I wanna have the flexibility of having ear protection or not.

—-more thoughts.

Something bugged me about this design…it looks like the designers made an attempt to make plastic “feel” more like something soft…maybe it was the fake printed stitching or the mini bill (both which i thought were cool). Or maybe it was seeing the NYC Helmet towards the end of the review. Oh well, I still feel like its successful.
