Cool helmet graphics

Not a bike helmet. This one is being worn by a skeleton racer at the upcoming Olympics. All my helmets have been solid colors, but this looks pretty cool.

I've heard of outrunning zombies, but racing skeletons?  That's a new one.

Didn't quite understand the cut of the helmet until the second pic.

How do you open the visor?

It's only on their head for a couple seconds.  Plus it looks like they are using some type of pinlock so fog won't be an issue.

How do you open the visor?

I guess by removing the screws.

its not a motorcycle helmet. Not meant for comfort. Must reduce any feature that increases drag coefficient = solid fitting visor.

Why stop with helmets?  Check out the Norwegian curling team's suits.

All their competitors will fall to the ground having seizures . . . . .WIN
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Yeah. They hit around 80mph on the straights. Can you imagine what that must look like with your eyes a few inches off the ice? No fear in this crowd.
