I've been eyeing out Justin's helmet for awhile now but I can't seem to find out any info on where or how he got that design or even some detail pictures of it.

I've only seen it on the yeti website on there video gallery.

I wonder if that has anything to do with the "Black Betty" image on the top of the helmet?
I don't know who the rider is, I don't really follow pro riders if he is one, but is he from New Zealand? I don't think Black Betty has anything to do with the All Blacks. As far as I know it's just a song. Haha

Yep, he's a pro rider for Yeti, and he is from New Zealand.

You're not a kiwi.

Go ride your bike.

I guess it would help if we all just actually read what's in the link, instead of just looking at the pretty helmet photos. :madman:

Justin Leov's new paintwork is ready for season 2008. With thanks to Impact Designs in Canada, specifically the airbrush artist Patrick Bisson, Justin's THE Carbon Fiber Race helmet has been done in Yeti colours featuring the silver fern of New Zealand, and on top, Black Betty, the new 23 Degrees athlete management icon.

SICK LOGO!

I'm not inquiring the 08' helmet with the yeti black and turquise color with the silver fern. I am talking about the white helmet with the Maori tribal designs on it. He mainly used in 07-08 season not this current season.

To reply to Kavu's comment of me not being a Kiwis he is correct cause I would be and am a pacific decendent of the Maori which are the native's of Aortera aka New Zealand. Beauty of being Hawaiian which is part of the Polynesian cutlure including Tongs, Samoans, Tahitians, Easter Islanders, Maori.

kiwi is the maori word for the small bird only seen on New Zealand. But the word Kiwis is reference to new zealand white people which I am definitly am not one.!!!! Such as Ha'ole is to White folks in Hawaii!!!
