The most popular helmet today?? The GPA Air Speed. I cannot believe how many people have this helmet! What is with people copying GP Level Riders all the time? LOL!!!!
The GPA Air Speed - that is all black, is extremely hot, hot, hot right now!
I thought they looked ugly, but I tried one on this morning *I had to get new riding gloves* and OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!
While I was there picking out new riding gloves, I went over to the helmet section because I wanted to try on a Charles Owen Skull Cap - I like it, but no air circulation what-so-ever.....can't get it...then I saw the GPA Air Speed.......
It's going to be my next helmet - ah....one day! I have to get one, not because it is popular - but because it is so comfortable, SUPER COOL on your head *which is great for those muggy MI summer days* and so light! I forgot I was even wearing it *yeah, I shopped with it on my head....I know..dorky*
I'm going to have to sell my Tipperary Sportage and my IRH. Not that selling those will give me even 1/4 $ to put towards a GPA Air Speed...those things are the price of a good used saddle for pete's sake - but I was saving my penny's for a Skull Cap, it's just that there is no ventilation at all on those helmets...and I can see my head being a pool of sweat after I get off a course.
BUT!!!! It'll be a long time waiting.....because they are super expensive......and getting a new saddle is more important right now....and of course, Eventing a ful season in 2010...........You know, making the choice "Helmet over HT's" isn't hard to make......lol.
I'll just have to be happy with my Tipperary Sportage for now :)
