The new ICON Airflite MIPS Demo helmet

Marlon Slack

Marlon’s first ride was a beaten up old four stroke held together with gaffer tape and burnt oil. Of great sentimental value (he’d traded a rifle for it) the first step in his customising career was riding it sideways into a tree and snapping it into two.

Years later, his customizing abilities haven’t improved. A dyed-in-the-wool Yamaha nut, he firmly believes the 1978 SR500 represents the acme of motorcycle development and every bike produced since is merely derivative.
