TGI Friday – Sprint Auction day



With one week until bike week things are as busy as ever in GGB HQ. But fortunately for you lot, we have once again come up trumps with another fantastic item for our Sprint Auction.

This week it is the gents from Proviz that have offered up one of their prized helmets – The Proviz Triton (see main picture). For those of you well versed in your Greek Mythology, Triton was a Greek god who could scare beasts and giants alike with a puff on his sea-shell horn.

The modern version comes without the hell-raising horn, but a hole bunch of other neat features to keep you safe from the beasts of the road.


  • Size – large 57-62cm
  • Front snap on/off visor
  • Rear LED light built in to adjustable headring for extra safety and comfort
  • In-mould construction that combines the outer shell to the impact absorbing EPS liner
  • Manufactured in Proviz fluorescent yellow or black with high visibility reflective strips
  • Designed to have an “Urban Feel”
  • 23 air vents
  • Manufactured specifically with the commuter in mind
  • Designed and built to CE EN 1078 standard

The integrated rear facing LED is a lovely touch and is a really effective way of increasing your visibility in both an urban and rural environment. Personally, I already rock a Hi-Viz helmet (much to the amusement of the rest of the GGB team) and I am getting Helmet envy..

Sadly its not for me, it’s for you!

What’s the Auction Format?

The format will be the same as usual:

  • The Lot will be the Pro-Viz Triton RRP £59.99 (see main picture).
  • The bidding will start at £5 with small increments of £2 and there will be NO reserve price set.
  • The auction will run from 12.30pm until 4.30pm at which point the winner will be contacted and arrangements made for delivery.
  • The auction will take place in the GGB Sprint Auction Store
