Restocked with new styles!

Hey everyone!

We have bad news and really good news!
The bad news first: Our distributor won’t be able to supply us with more of our usual C4 Lite helmets until early 2011.
But it’s ok, because the good news is that we’re restocked with 3 new new styles, check em out!

From MACE, we have the C4, C4 Lite, Trigger, and the Nos.

Check back in a day or two for an update on our 2011 calendar and the release party on November 5th at Astoria!!

The Prohab Helmet Show recap

First of all, Thank you very much to everyone who came out on Friday to the new and beautiful Modus Studios! The event was a huge success, with over 350 (estimated) people through the doors over the course of the night.

We’re also very happy to announce that every helmet was sold!
Thank you so much to all the artists who participated, all of the work was amazing, and so varied from piece to piece. Keep an eye out for their next showings!

You can see some photos from the first half of the night on The Georgia Straight’s website, taken by Jon Cranny.

It was a new venture for us to organize and curate an art show. It couldn’t have been accomplished without the support of the community, and our event sponsors, Scion Canada & Ultra X-Press Printing.

Our next event is the 2011 Calendar release party, which will be November 5th 2010, at The Astoria. Save the date!

Prohab Helmet Show

Prohab Helmet show

Hey everyone! We have a big big announcement!!

Friday September 17th, 2010.
The Prohab Helmet Society proudly presents:

The Prohab Helmet Show!
(click the link for the Facebook event)

We’ve been wanting to make this happen for a long long time, and it’s finally coming together!

Here’s what’s going down.
We’ve given blank helmets to seven of our favorite Vancouver artists to create/decorate/reinterpret as they please. The only rule given was the finished helmets must be able to be used for their intended purpose: being worn on heads, of course!
The helmets will be sold during the night through a silent auction, with the proceeds being split 50/50 to the artist and Prohab.

DJs Neil Hillbrandt & Kellen Powell (Blastramp, Make it Count!), and NiƱa Mendoza will be playing some tunes for mingling and there will be a few kegs at low low starving artist prices!
Come by and have some drinks before the bar or stay all night.
That said, please do respect the gallery and all art inside, this isn’t a frat party.

Doors at 8pm, Goes til 1am
at the brand new MODUS STUDIOS at 206 Carrall!

See you there!

This event couldn’t happen without our generous sponsors:

Scion Canada
Ultra X-Press Printing
Thank you!

The stock is a lil’ low!

Hi Everyone.

Due to extremely high demand lately, we only have a couple colours left. We’re out of black and grey mediums, but we have lots in red, black camo and grey camo. We only have larges in matte black left, and we’re completely out of smalls!

We’ll be placing another order either next week or the week after, depending on when our distributor gets new stock in.


Velopalooza Wrap Up

Renee at Velopalooza

We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone involved with Velopalooza! We brought over 30 helmets to the wrap party event, and we were sold out by 3:00pm! They managed to cram so many awesome bike events into one week, and it was a huge success for everyone involved! Can’t wait for next year!

Also, I just found out our order form is currently down, so if you’ve filled it out over the last couple days and haven’t heard back from us yet, please send us an email and we’ll get back to you right away. Sorry for the technical difficulties! All fixed!

Prohab at Velopalooza today!

We’re going to have a table packed with helmets at the Velopalooza wrap festival today at Strathcona park (Venables & Raymur). Come say hi, and get a helmet if you want one!

The day runs from 11am-6pm and is full of bands, raffle draws, the PEDAL Zoo, unicycle lessons, Trial Riders demos, a kids zone, food vendors (The Sweet Grass Grill, The Bean Buggy, and Beer Brats), the B.C. Clettes, and more! Check out the event page for more details.
