are they the new ones with the blow up inners - saw them at Mets in Holland - I think I might be able to justify a trip to see them and sort out new helmets for this years racing!

Is there any danger of them tipping if you dropped of the slip?

Cookee,

Yes they are the Mark 10 with the inflateable inners. Very comfortable, and easily adjustable with an inflation tube, even when you are wearing them.

They also fit a lot off head sizes, from my 7 year old boy up to my head, and the wife says I've got a big one!

Having had two Mk 9 gecko's for a year or so, and having taken delivery of two Mk 10's recently i can not express how much better they are in one sentance.

If you own Mk9's (or older) and can in anyway justify the 130 ood get a Mk10.

There is a clandestine on board, the horrible man with the glasses.

Compliments for your child.

Funnily enough, I decided that for 130 I would stick with my "old" mk9 (we now have one of each) - and I do wonder how long the inflatable lining will last for?

I'm with you on that one Richard. Scurvey Crew has just bought the Mk10 and I expressed concern about longevity of the inflatable bit. They also look like they could be a bit "sweaty" in slightly warmer conditions.

GC - Didn't go for the tinted visors then? Very fetching they are and do a grand job of cutting down the glare although I've been told I look like Darth Vader in mine. The trailer idea I like - could be just the thing for manouvering around the compound to the slip at ECA (big electric winch supplied to launch with). Who are the makers please?
