A bike helmet might be essential for safety on the roads but they don’t half bring down a look. If you've always thought a helmet was anything but chic then let us introduce Dashel, the new brand merging road safety with style, and finally a product that female bikers will be proud to wear.
Sustainably made in Cornwall, the family-run business once made helmets for the military and marine industries – so you know safety is paramount. The helmets' carbon shell is both strong and light, while inside, the lining is made from multi-impact foam that won’t degrade over time. They’re also 100% recyclable and super comfortable.
And then there’s the style – slim, modern with a hint of equestrian cool, they come in a range of subdued shades – no garish sporty prints or brash branding here. We particularly love the Cobalt Blue Gloss Finish – pair with a Breton, pea coat and skinnies for your commute. Grey and white offer a softer look and there are also Moleskin finishes available if you’re after a heritage vibe.
So, what’s the damage? Starting at £170, Dashel’s helmets don’t come cheap, but you can’t put a price on safety that looks this good.
