I voted for cool :D

Anybody remember Jamie Tatlows? Blue front section with white stars and red ribbony stripes on the rear.....looked better than I've described it!

Never owned one, been a Giro man.....apart from a Specialized Sub 6 Pro :shock: one of the best fitting most comfortable helmets I've worn!

I'm voting cool. I had until recently a green and white on. They were cool the, perhaps not now (I'm a Giro man now). But hell, this is retroland isn't it so everything old should be cool (in theory at least if not in practice).

Will Bula hats be in the next vote?

A rider of Tinker Juarez's quality, on a bike of that quality, with any helmet/hairstyle/colour lycra would be cool. The Etto is purley incedental! :lol:

Look too "skate" for me..Now the old specialized ones with the stretchy covers, on the over hand now they were cool.
I had one with flames down the sides 8) Back in 1990. Oh my god :shock: that was 17 years ago.

Good point about zebra painted Ettos, I think that must have been a wacky UK thing?

But look at who wore them; Jimmy Deaton, Myles Rockwell, Missy Giove Jez Avery (spot the odd one out!)
Rishi Grewel (spelling?) and the rest of the original Yeti team (did Julie Furtado and Tomac wear one?) Cindy Devine (Durango '90 DH world champ, KONA) and in the UK Team Orange (Black kit, orange polka dots!) wore them and of course Tinker on his Klein!

If Ringle, Yeti, Onza Porcs and Mk 1 Manitou are cool, then shouldn't Etto Helmets make the Cool Wall too?
