OVER THE YEARS, manufacturers have improved the design aesthetics, safety, comfort and weight of crash helmets. But the Retro style crash helmets market has exploded in response to bike trends, with even the big brands such Arai and Shoei joining the party, creating a massive array of vintage styles, themes, and colours incorporating modern safety features and technology.
I am someone who loves and appreciates works of art and beautiful things. When I first saw the Hedon crash helmet, I just knew that I had to own this luxury cafe racer helmet. It is a handmade classic British retro style, designed in London. It features beautiful leather piping around the helmet base ports and has a unique brass nameplate, anodized round brow vents, visor clamps, anti-fog double lens with a wide field of view—all in all giving it a unique classic look.

One of the many reasons I ride is to get away from the constant communication involved in daily life, to be alone in my helmet with just my thoughts and the rush of the wind. But there are times when I get lost and need direction. Cue my Senna intercom system that I attached to the helmet; the quality and sound are excellent. I can easily hear navigation instructions on the motorway without any problems.
