Did I miss something? Im assuming they aren't making the Hustler anymore? I cant find them anywhere. Lowbrow has like 6 left and they're all too big. I guess ill have to move onto a Bell or something which sucks...

Probably Feb some time. New lid is gonna be essentially the same as the El Fuerte, but with some foam changes inside. (That no one but DOT/NHTSA would notice!) Shell is the same. New model is called the Bonanza. No one east of Arizona could pronounce El Fuerte and we don't want any confusion with the old/recalled model.

Awesome thanks guys, I ended up finding a matte silver Hustler which is what I wanted...gonna definitely look into the Bonanaza when its released though if its got a smaller profile.

Haha, OK one person could pronounce it!

We should have Gringos not long after. These are going to be L, XL and XXL to start with and XS, S and M coming later in spring. (Two different shells/molds and the larger ones are done first.)

any tentative date??? very excited for this one and I need a new lid. I cast one out of ice to ride with NHMike in the frozen northeastern tundra, but MA requires helmets year round.

Any plans to make a Novelty version of the full face seeing that your 3/4 are so popular? They fit so well!
