LID TECHNOLOGIES, a colabo spinoff........

............that really set out to get DH skaters in something safer than hang-gliding helmets that were being used at the time. The branding took a few organizational twists and turns before they hit the market, but in the end, safety was achieved and that was the end goal. The Research and Development was a long road and some of the prototypes were nothing short of scary, but in the end a helmet was born that set the DH skate scene on its ear, safely. Once again Dan saw no profits from Lid Tech which later became a helmet that hundreds of riders used confidently.. No longer did skateboarding need to borrow from other sports to have a helmet. Only 20 Lid Tech’s are out there in the world including Dan’s which he currently has in Japan.
