The continued growth and popularity of downhill skateboarding and other diverse forms of riding skateboards are gaining more and more attention these days. The safety gear brand, Triple Eight, has just dropped a press release stating that they will be offering a couple new downhill products in their 2012 line up. We only know of two “longboarders” on their team, but they are definitely rippers: Amanda Powell and Jessica Corchia (See Amanda’s Loaded video below). Anyway, the full-face helmet and gloves they are dropping this Spring look pretty awesome!
As stated by the Triple Eight crew:
“Yes, the rumors are true. Beginning in Spring of 2012, Triple 8 will be introducing 2 new Longboarding items to our already illustrious lineup of Protective gear offerings. With a current anticipated initial ship date of APPROXIMATELY March 1st, 2012, Triple eight will be introducing the new T8-Racer Downhill Longboard Helmet & the Downhill Slide Glove.”
