As a roller derby player, I wear helmets. (All my gear is Triple8!) I am sensitive to what I would put on my head. This design is called "cruisin for a brusin" for a reason...anyone who wears a helmet is looking for some action. My initial design was geared towards derby players, the subtle fishnet burn and bruises underneath. I feel this could definitely be uni-sex. I kept it simple, I would actually wear this. It's not too bright or obnoxious. I don't want a bright crazy helmet, I want a badass helmet.
