Just bought a mini-helmet with the new logo and lined it up next to a mini-helmet I had with the old logo.   I realize this is a comparison of mini-helmets which may or may not represent the "real thing" but I found some interesting differences:

1. Maybe it's just my mini-helmet, but the shade of blue on the new helmet is different.
2. The relative size of logo decal on the new helmet is much larger.
3. The white outline around the logo is gone.
4. You can't see it in this pic, but the stripes down the middle of the new helmet are longer.

I can't imagine it would be hard to reuse the same color. If the colors changed, wouldn't we have been told about it?

I can't believe I never noticed before, but the white outline on the old helmet looks tacky.

Thanks for the comparison. Where'd you get the new mini and how much are they running?

hmmm.....I thought it had been mentioned that the color had changed. If you look at any of the images of the new helmet it certainly looks different to me

Looks a lot better without the white outline. And can't be mistaken for teal now at least.

...and again, I realize these are mini-helmets, but I still thought these differences were interesting.
