I think Marshall posted a story about a guy smashing into a guard rail with one of his helmets in the old thread...

well I'm that guy if you remember.

A couple months ago i had a super gnarly crash while downhilling in Malibu. I ate it while taking a hairpin, and collided with a guard rail head-first at 30mph+. I hit the rail right on top of my head and cracked the helmet.  I walked away from that crash pissed off that i scratched my brand new flyaway haha with only a black eye and a little road rash. not even a headache.

I would have probably died if i were not wearing a helmet in that crash. His helmets come with a tag that says they are neither certified nor tested, but i now trust what he makes, having been the crash-test dummy for their safety. so they are Steve-certified!

I don't have a shot of the helmet but I'll get one when I find my camera.

So here's my crash!



and some more...




here's a couple of my most recent videos, to show the kind of riding that I'm doing.

Thanks so much Sidorman for your great videos, testimonial, and Sco like crash photo.

Everyone should know that before Sidorman bought his helmet we discussed (on the phone) the Flyaway®'s suitability for downhill.

I stated that, especially at today's speeds, I thought downhillers should sport a full face helmet.

I said the Flyaway®s were "skate at your own risk" helmets and that he should check one out and decide for himself if it was appropriate.


I explained that as skateboarders, "we" decide what risks we are going to take, not some government agency, and that extends to which safety equipment we use, and how we use it.

Steve checked out the helmet at Rip City, and decided to buy,

Thank goodness it "saved his life".

He didn't even hurt his head! (at least the part covered by the helmet).

What does all this mean?


Well, it means in "certain" instances the Flyaway® helmet does provide great protection, as Dr. Rick, T, and others can attest.

In fact , as far as I have heard, nobody has hurt their head wearing one of my handmade fiberglass Flyaway® helmets. (though many have hit their helmeted heads, HARD)

I just have to point out that they will not, unfortunately, not save your ass (or head) in every case. (nothing will!)


So please, SKATE AT YOUR OWN RISK!


Here is a recent custom that is making its way to Sweden!











Although you can't see it in the Pix, the white is a white pearl paint.

And Goofyfooter, I think my "helmet machine" must have malfunctioned, I have sent it back to the manufacturer for repairs.

Lots more shots to come soon.
