We recently posted about Triple Eight’s latest Certified Helmets, and their list of riders keeps growing. From PLG to now Tony Hawk, these guys over at Triple Eight are definitely onto something. This is what Triple Eight had to say about Tony joining the team…
Triple Eight has spent years on a quest to develop the “Holy Grail of Helmets” a certified helmet with the comfort and fit of our famous Sweatsaver. We worked with our top team riders to make happen, and went through dozens of prototypes and endless rounds of testing to figure it out.
When we finally got it done, we stopped by Tony’s ramp. He put it on, agreed that it was a true game changer, and joined the team. A couple days later Tony shot this video. Check it out and hear from the Birdman in his own words.
We’re always stoked when a top athlete joins the team because of a new product that we’ve developed – but it’s even better when that skater is Tony Hawk!
“Helmets have always compromised between comfort and protection. This helmet has the best of both, and looks good too.”
