In the 90ies Richie Schley was part of the legendary "Frorider" crew and thus one of the pioneers of freeriding. The Canadian's powerful yet playful riding style is unmistakeable even today. And as Schley detests compromises not only when it comes to riding, he relies on protective gear from iXS. With the "Phobos Schleyer Edition", Richie has a lightweight and well-vented fullface helmet at hand, and its tartan design was his idea. After all, Schley demands flawless function just as much as good looks.
Richie shreds Laguna Beach, CA. Though the iXS Phobos won't be available in the USA until 2013 you can check out the the Metis and the other protective gear by visiting iXS USA.
