Did anyone read the viewer comments for that story? I know I shouldn't laugh - at the sophmoric exchange between hahaha2233 and ErnestHerb, but I can't help it. "Course there's a video of it..."

This is the same Dirk Aeur who strapped a jet pack to his back for a drag race with an Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster on Top Gear a few years back. This is a link to the video of the segment. Dirk is introduced around 3:30 in the 5 minute clip.

I see the helmet as rather pointless, given the failure mode.

Holy crap that looks incredibly awesome and unsafe all at the same time. We have had enough broken coasters go off into the ocean in Jersey, I can not imagine what kind of trouble this thing will cause.
