Cool Motorcycle Helmets
So it's kind of ironic that I'm writing about customised helmets since I left my own helmet on the tube the other day Why, you might ask, was I taking my bike stuff on the tube? That's a whole other story but I'll remember not to do it again.
Anyhow, let's talk helmets. We know they are important at a utilitarian level - they can save your life so that's definitely a good thing. But with a variety of cool helmets out there, how does one stand out from the crowd. We have compiled a list of cool and wacky helmets for your visual delight!
Cool custom motorcycle helmets
Futuristic-looking, mirrored visor shielding your eyes from the sun and an all round protective shell, this helmet certainly wouldn’t let you down. The large visor shield offers fantastic all around vision.
This gothic Speed R Wingo helmet puts style and safety together in an affordable package, a must have for all riders! This bad boy also comes with a variable density visor providing you with fantastic vision in all weather conditions.
One of the most “in” helmets yet, this fresh and bright design is perfect for when you want to go for a spin in the sun. A great look on a scooter, this three quarter shell helmet protects your cranium without obstructing your vision.
We’ve seen the cool, now for the crazy
These are some pretty crazy customized helmets, please do not try doing this at home, as it might void your insurance policy.
For the fanatics out there who are strongly attached to riding and Star Wars…this is perfect. With the novelty of looking like a world famous Storm Trooper and having the same protection as they would have had (well, this wouldn’t be able to with stand a hefty laser gun) this helmet is just right.
Hulk Print Helmet
Be the envy of bikers and drivers alike by becoming tatadadah a superhero! We’ve all wished we could be the Hulk at some point, but now you can, well on your bike at least!
These helmets designed by Good, are purely conceptual and not in your local shop, but they are hilarious, here are some of my favourites.
I love tennis, and this design, but maybe too soon after Wimbledon.
A moving atlas, you can paint a dot on all the countries you’ve visited!
This is too creepy!
I doubt we’ll be seeing these on the road anytime soon, as the inevitable double-takes are likely to be a safety issue for all road uses!
So, I’ll be dropping some big hints to my girlfriend – especially since I’m using my back up helmet and not holding out much hope that TFL will return my favourite one! Ride safe, and look cool folks.
