Building on the popularity of their first collaboration with 4h10 in Paris, Hedon is releasing their second helmet—the Vitesse Heroine Racer. Even though it’s fair to assume that this helmet will be just as popular, Hedon will only be producing 100 of the Vitesse Heroines, so demand will be high.
The Vitesse Heroine Racer helmet is a composite fiber shell of fiberglass and carbon fiber. The interior features a Head Armor lining that provides 360 degree cushion padding covered in Merlin anti-bacterial fabric. The leather is natural calf leather and all the hardware, including the HEDON nameplate, is brass. The helmet is ultra-light and has a low profile, but not at the expense of comfort. Three channels provide ventilation and it is soundproofed. The helmet meets the ECE 2205 requirements, making it road legal in Europe and the UK.
As far as looks go, the helmet takes its notes from the 70s. The gloss finish on the grey base color has a high sheen to it. The blue and brass stripes add an extra layer of style and match perfectly with the brass hardware, DD buckle, and nameplate. The helmet comes with a clear visor and an extra visor in the color of your choice (there are five different options).
The Vitesse Heroine Racer helmet is available only as a pre-order and is slated to arrive in June or July of 2018. With limited supplies, you’ll want to move fast.
