Now then, now then...

Do you look a plonker in an Etto helmet? Are these zebra patterned off pudding bowl helmets ever regarded as cool?

(I had one - and I also won the squished second version in a competition in MBR)

Never had one, wanted one so badly when I was 10 but had to make do with a cheap Giro Hardtop. Definitely cool.

Gimme a Giro Hammerhead anyday, though Ettos were a touch earlier.
