From leather jackets to early-century goggles, it seems like nowadays the oldest the coolest. And surprisingly enough, we at Vintage Rides are all about a classic style! We are also all about security on the road, so what’s best than dressing your head with a retro-feel helmet?
This helmet’s modern graphics and clear lines will appeal to riders looking to add-up a clean minimalistic touch to their attire. The shell is very light with a slide visor - a perfect combination for the ones who don’t want to compromise stylishness for comfortness. The tinted sun glass will allow to have additional weather protection if needed. Other features include a nylon strap D-Ring retention system.
Did you know that each Hedon helmet was a tailor-made handcrafted piece? Pick the shade and finishings of your choice: your personalized helmet with its own retro feel will arrive at your place in one month. What cannot be changed is the fiberglass and carbon composition shell, as well as the Merlin anti-bacterial interior fabric. But who would want to review such high-quality standards for its own head protection? We can already picture it with a little Continental GT. Yes sir.
