Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

Premier Delta systeem helm

Premier Delta systeem helm

Nieuw in de 2018 Premier collectie is de DELTA. Een modieuze flip up helm met een hoge kwaliteit, deze systeemhelm is de perfecte compromis tussen een full-face en een jet helm. Met zijn moderne, strakke lijnen zorgt het voor een optimale geluidsarme helm waardoor de helm ideaal is voor een lange trip of voor sport gebruik.

Het praktische mechanisme aan de onderkant van de helm waarmee het kinstuk open en dicht gaat is makkelijk te bedienen met één hand, ook wanneer men dikke winterhandschoenen draagt.

Het ventilatiesysteem bevat drie regelbare ventilatieopeningen. De eerste bevindt zich op het kinstuk, en de andere twee bevinden zich aan de bovenkant van de helm. Deze zorgen ervoor dat frisse lucht de helm in kan komen en weer kan verlaten.

De buitenschaal is gegoten in thermoplastisch materiaal dat zeer resistent is. De binnenkant is gegoten in gedifferentieerde dichtheid EPS, in twee maten, om maximale bescherming te garanderen.

DELTA wordt geleverd met een in policarbonaat gegoten transparant vizier, deze is 2.2 mm dik, anti kras behandeld en wordt standaard geleverd met een Pinlock® antifog lens.

De helm heeft tevens een donker zonnevizier, krasbestendig en is inklapbaar door een knop op de onderkant van de schaal. Het vizier kan gemakkelijk worden aangepast en vervangen zonder dat je gereedschap nodig hebt.

De anti allergie voering is volledig afneembaar en wasbaar.

De kinband heeft een micrometrische quick release sluiting
