Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

Introducing Qwart Helmets in the Benelux


There are two main versions of the Qwart Phoenix, the “Slick” and the “Std”. The former has no visor fitted for those who want to use goggles or ride with an open eye port, and the latter has a built in flip-up polycarbonate visor. Both the Slick and the Std have a carbon fiber trellis chinbar for face protection, with a removable carbon fiber cover that can be swapped out for other colors.

The EPS liner contains a series of hidden channels for airflow that are linked to external ports – allowing airflow across the wearers head to keep them cool. The chin bar also contains twin vents on either side, to keep fresh air flowing into the nose/mouth area and to assist with helmet demisting.


The most significant design feature of the Qwart Phoenix is its modular nature. Designer Xavier Marigo spent 5 years designing and prototyping the helmet, taking great care to ensure that parts are owner replaceable.You can swap out (almost) every element of the helmet and replace it with aftermarket parts in different colours – this allows riders to match their helmets to their bikes (and/or gear), and it allows them to change up the look of their helmet with nothing more than an Allen key (also known as a Hex key).

Once you have your Qwart you’re able to order the custom trim and vents, and the helmet’s removable lining can also be replaced by the owner – in a variety of colours and materials.
