California-designed T2 and .5 unveiled

THE reveals new helmets designs for 2011

THE Industries has launched two new helmet designs for 2011 – the top-of-the-line T2, and the full face .5 helmet.

The T2 builds on its predecessor with a lightweight yet super strong construction, available in either a composite or hand laid carbon fibre shell construction. Sporting a completely new design from the ground up, the T2 features a reduced silhouette, semi-integrated visor, 17 cooling vents and comes with an extra colour-mathed visor and durable Cordura nylon helmet bag.

The T2 carbon retails at £229 and the composite at £159. Both feature a one piece EPS liner and come in four adult sizes.

The new full face .5 helmet share a wealth of features with the One helmet and is pitched at providing great style maximum protection while looking after the wallet. Constructed from injection-moulded ABS shell, the .5 inclueds 15 vents, D-ring closure and a washable liner, as well as coming in four colour options.

The .5 retails at £89.95. Dealers can view the whole THE range at Silverfish’s website here.
