Vintage Helmet

Ruby Helmets. A Vintage Look made from Modern Materials.

The last few weeks it seems that every time I do a design post on a Friday it has something to do with motorcycles. With that said why should today be any different. I am a firm believer that if you ride a motorcycle, or even a scooter that goes faster than 25 miles per hour you should wear a full face helmet. You don’t want your chin coming in contact with pavement if you can help it.

French company Ruby has released a new line of retro inspired open face helmets that look quite stylish, and at times a bit feminine. While I wouldn’t wear these helmets on a motorcycle (what I said above), I would consider using one of these as a track helmet for something like autocross, or a light track driving. I love the classic look, and the simple color/graphic combinations that don’t detract from the silhouette of the  helmet itself.

The helmets are made from carbon fiber and feature burgundy Nappa lambskin linings. For added rigidity each helmet has a distinctive backbone  that runs down the center line.
