I really like the that Troy Lee are doing their own thing and going for a style which is not so mainstream anymore. It makes sense considering how heavily they have influenced the current look going on at Fox and Bell. It's like those guys have just caught up to what tld were doing, so they're going to do something else. As good as the Fox/Bell helmets look I think it's important that there is an alternative on offer.

As for the glossy old-school look, I think they've pulled it off really well with the Gwin and the Speed Orange. They take me back to the early 2000's and those first guys who were really serious about trying to go fast on mountain-bikes. They look fast, and that's timeless. However if they are going to go with that look they need to go full beans. The old school look doesn't work with a modern matte finish.

And as for the whole eye-ball, checkered, hot-rod thing, we are mountain bikers. We're all about going fast and having fun, but this stuff isn't current and it doesn't tie into the heritage of our sport at all! There is no checkered flag in mountain biking and there never has been.
