The Skully Helmet project has been revived back from the dead thanks to a couple of new investors.

Businessmen Ivan Contreras and Rafael Contreras acquired SKULLY, Inc. and has rebranded the company to SKULLY Technologies.

Following the email blast sent by the new folks over at SKULLY Technologies, it seems that they will try their level best to “make this right”.

Looks like Skully Helmets are back in the game, folks. Following a recent email blast sent by Skully Technologies, it seems that the dead project has risen from the ashes yet again thanks to a couple of new investors pumping some proper funds into the company.

Businessmen Ivan Contreras and Rafael Contreras stated in the email blast that they have acquired SKULLY, Inc. with the hopes of reviving this unique project which has the potential to go big if guided into the right direction.

Ivan Contreras who has been appointed as the new president of SKULLY Technologies has gathered the right group of people which is based in Atlanta, Georgia. With this acquisition, SKULLY, Inc. is now SKULLY Technologies.

Back in 2014 when the project was initialised, SKULLY helmets promised the future of motorcycling with state-of-the-art technology embedded in the lids themselves, specifically the AR-1 helmet with heads-up display (HUD). However, they were forced to close shop last year due to a number of different factors.

Although a lot of SKULLY investors, fans and enthusiasts who have been supporting the once doomed project emotionally and monetary, the new folks have no interested in reimbursing the failed project and hope that they have what it takes to do what’s right with revolutionary products.

“We are determined to make this right.”

Below is the said email sent by SKULLY Technologies.

“You are receiving this email because you are part of the SKULLY Nation and we are bringing back the SKULLY helmet.

We are happy to inform you that the assets of SKULLY, Inc., have been acquired by Ivan Contreras and Rafael Contreras, successful businessmen in a variety of global turnaround industrial and technology ventures, with the goal of fulfilling SKULLY’s destiny.

Ivan Contreras, President of the new company SKULLY Technologies, assembled a new leadership team and has located the headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.

SKULLY Technologies is unrelated to the former SKULLY, Inc., which filed bankruptcy and is no longer in business. Although SKULLY Technologies has no formal obligation to the customers of the now defunct SKULLY, Inc., we recognize that hundreds of SKULLY helmet enthusiasts around the world have contributed to this product and were understandably disappointed that they never received one.

We are determined to make this right.

We will be sharing more updates soon on SKULLY and the revival of the SKULLY Nation.”

It always a shame to see a company with big potential to close its doors but with this new revival, we hope that they can bring this future technologies to greater heights.
