AFX FX-95 911 Tribute Street Helmet
This 9/11 tribute helmet from 2011 is a great example of the continued impact of 9/11. 9/11 is a brand in itself, driving sales. Also, this is another example of "corporate curating," where a company is making their mark in history through the production of this object.
From a Press Release (http://www.afxhelmets.com/resources/pdfs/FX-95_911_PRESS_RELEASE.pdf):
FX-95 911 TRIBUTE STREET HELMET
Based on the new for 2011 AFX FX-95 street helmet, this special limited edition helmet was made available in a one time production run of 911 pieces. Each helmet is individually serial numbered and comes with a deluxe carrying bag and certificate of authenticity.
