Troy Lee Designs Steve McQueen HelmetThe Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda Racing Team wore attractive looking helmets at the opening AMA Supercross race in Anaheim, promoting a limited-edition design.

The design of these helmets Wil Hahn and Cole Seely donned? The first editions in a series of Steve McQueen helmet styles that will be offered over the next three years.

The motorcycle helmet, which is on display at the Troy Lee showroom in Corona, Calif., retails for $525, the first edition having a production run of only 700 units. Troy Lee Designs has entered a three-year partnership with the Steve McQueen estate, making the limited-edition helmets possible for production.

The first helmet in the line will be available at select retailers in the U.S. and internationally, and at 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 limited 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.”

According to a Troy Lee Designs press release:

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 the official Steve McQueen Web site.
