STEVE MCQUEEN X TROY LEE

Please please tell me that this Steve McQueen and Troy Lee Collab will come in a D3... It wouldn't matter if you came last, you'd still come first... This will be the first in a series of Steve McQueen™ helmet styles that will roll out over the next three years. The first helmet in the line will be available at select retailers in the U.S. and internationally and online at www.troyleedesigns.com in June 2010.

"My dad was an avid motorcyclist and huge supporter of the sport," said Chad McQueen, Steve's son. "It's great to see his love for motorcycling live on through new collector’s edition helmets."

"I have looked up to Steve McQueen my entire life," says Troy Lee. "I have always held great respect for him and everything he represented. I am truly excited to forge this relationship and look forward to designing a collection that represents Steve's timeless style and personality."

Steve McQueen left an indelible imprint as one of Hollywood's most charismatic leading men.

His balance of masculinity and sensitivity made him both a man's man and a ladies' man all at once. His revered roles in films such as Bullitt, The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair and Papillion have been often imitated but never repeated. An actor, race-car driver and father, McQueen was the epitome of the American dream, rising from hardscrabble circumstances to become one of the most famous movie stars in the world. His amazing life story is chronicled on his official website http://stevemcqueen.com.
