Veldt Helmets has joined forces with Italian luxury shoe maker Berluti to create an all-new limited edition modular helmet. And with a price tag of £2840 – could it be the most expensive helmet ever?
If you’ve not heard of Veldt Helmets before, that’s because the Isle of Man based manufacturer has only been around a couple of years – but in that time, the brand has made a name for itself, creating a range of stylish, retro-inspired modular helmets around the same basic shell and setup. It’s a clever design – which allows the carbon fibre helmets to be mounted with a flip-up shield or even converted into a full face.
Interestingly, the team behind Veldt are the same people who ran the now defunct Ruby Helmets brand – so you can rest assured that they know what they’re doing when it comes to creating lids. And now, the brand has teamed up with luxury shoe specialist Berluti, creating a new ultra-light carbon fibre helmet, with a screw-on chin.
Weighing only 912 grams on the scales, the carbon helmet is painted gloss black and comes with a funky design to match – while Berluti lent its expertise, edging the lid with Vitello Fiore leather. It also features a leather peak, a removable Coolmax lining, and it’s compatible with a clear visor too.
All that Italian leather and carbon fibre technology comes at a price though – with the helmet setting punters back a whopping £2,840. What do you reckon? Is it worth it? For more information on the helmet, click HERE. And if you’re interested in getting your hands on one, click HERE.
