Montblanc, a brand known for supplying the manliest watches, pens, leather goods and jewellery to the manliest of men for one hundred and ten years and counting, have just upped the ante with their move into the luxury motorcycle helmets market. Perhaps a brand new market they’ve entirely created, we’re not quite sure, all we know is that it looks like the bar has just been raised on stylish cerebral safety for when you’re flying along on two wheels by these hard hats from their Urban Spirits series.
Inspired by the racing gloves of yore, the perforated leather lets just a tiny amount of the shiny under-surface peek through, and the hardware subtly features the famous Montblanc ‘white star’ insignia. It is offered in both full-face and open formats and each model has its own style of black visor, suitable for day and night use. We’re not sure of the price tag as yet but it’s no doubt reflective of the incredible craftsmanship for which this company is so well known and the zeal for innovation they continue to show this far on is worth an honourable mention.
