This Pray For Speed x Ornamental Conifer design is a testament to Safa’s creative approach to capturing the cycling experience and his appreciation for high-performance equipment. Ornamental Conifer, who has painted helmets for F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo, was enthusiastic about working with cycling equipment and brought his signature race car style to this project.
