ok so maybe my reaction to white ear loops is a bit much, and im ok with white helmets bc i never thought of a white helmet as out of the ordinary. but isnt it more traditional for the color/white to have white loops and the black to be black? I also dont get people that love white because it gets scuffed and dirty from sweat so easily. For my franchise gloves i even asked them to eliminate all white, even the assembly thread from the glove as it will just get discolored very easily.
I feel like roller guys get a bad rep bc all of our equipment get the radical design jobs. Im going to say i like the current mission ac1 pants because they have mission style, but are tamed down from my tribal graffiti my current pants have. the ac2s though are just so much especially on the back. im a grown man in the year 2013, not a young teenage boy form the 80s. and you can say its their style and advertising but you can be even more effective if you use your brain.
look at warrior, they used to have tribal lightening bolts, dragons, snakes etc all over their sticks. but now in the past 2-3 years they tamed it down a lot and i think people are giving them more of a chance bc of it and they are seeing they are making great products right now. look at alkalis ca7 pants in black. theyre plain black pants but their logo is big on the thigh and a slightly different color. you cant tell me you wont notice that,
