The Her­itage’s de­sign

is in­spired by clas­sic moto (scooter) styles, and its clean lines, chrome riv­ets and leather-look straps all add to the min­i­mal styling. It’s not all just for show, though, as the Her­itage con­forms to CE safety stan­dards. De­spite min­i­mal vent­ing it breathes well, and comes with qual­ity ab­sorbent pads and a rea­son­ably low weight of 490g. But clever de­tails set it above the com­pe­ti­tion. The mag­netic strap clasp is a neat idea as it can be easily op­er­ated one-handed, and the neat ‘poplock’ de­sign – a 1in di­am­e­ter cir­cle in the hard-shell that’s mag­net­i­cally at­tached (and teth­ered by an elas­tic cord) – pops out so you can slot your bike lock through. The rub­ber pro­tec­tive edg­ing around the hard-shell is another stylish touch with real ben­e­fit.

Well-thought-out hard-shell hel­met that’s smart, stylish and safe
