Diesel has designed a new helmet in cooperation with AGV. It would look pretty sleek along with a Buel or Triumph Speed Triple. But I think they intend to market it towards the scooter crowd. Because here’s what they say about it:

You’re a hotshot – you’re a maverick renegade, speeding through life to hell and back at up to 30 mph straight, 25 hours a day, 8 days a week.

Sure you’re having the time of your life – you’re young, ripe and so very supple – so you need highly styled head protection which comes in a fully branded shoulder bag in printed canvas of course.

Mowie is an advanced utility headwear with interchangeable visor, padded stitched ergonomic neck support, trademark Mohican crest, and truly exceptional robustness.

And it’s as hygienic as you are too! With hygienically treated ‘ultimate-comfort’ padding and a leather neck-roll made from fully removable for washing, parts can be replaced or cleaned with ease.
The micro-lock retention system allows quick and easy fastening/unfastening of the buckle to adjust to comfort.
The outer shell, in High Resistant Thermoplastic resin and 2 different sizes, allows the perfect fit no matter how big your head.

Plus the helmet is easily stored inside the space under the saddle of the majority of scooters on the market, and, coupled with drop down, clear, anti-scratch polycarbonate aviator visor (which offers 100% protection against UV rays) you’ll look like the top 1% of dogfighters on the planet no matter how clumsy you ride, and that’s an empty promise we can keep.

Designed by the Diesel Creative Team, headed by Creative Director Wilbert Das, the unisex helmet is available in sizes XS to XL in the following colours: mat White, mat Black, mat Green and mat Bronze.

The helmet will be available at an average price of $250 in Diesel stores across the United States starting in the fall of 2009.

    It looks very cool, but it also looks like it was designed with style in mind before safety.

    I’m a function over form kind of guy…

  2. Max Manroe  June 10th

    Yup… I agree with atlasrider, it looks very cool. But I think they need to made a full face helmet, it is more safety.

  3. Lars Benzin  June 10th

    Looks like something ROOF have been selling for years now…. And i dont see the point in getting your jaw removed if you crash….. Fullface – No less!

    Dentist’s favourite helmet

  5. Teemu  June 10th

    Cool looking helmet :)

  6. Reed  June 11th

    Would I look incredibly ridiculous wearing this riding my bicycle? haha It does look really cool.

  7. Ber2  June 16th

    looks very cool. i wish i have one.

  8. Shepdaddy  June 20th

    Looks pretty cool, if you’re a jet fighter pilot, might look a little suspicious on a motorcycle. Momo makes helmets like these and they are typically for scooter riders. Ciao for now.

    I think it’s nice looking, but pretty much echoing everyone else – it seems to be less about full protection and more about style. I don’t really get the 3/4 helmet concept. Protect your head but not the rest of your face and jaw. Alrighty!

  10. Teemu  June 29th

    Open face helmets are just too tempting to use with eyeglasses and hot weather. I know I should wear full….

    it looks very cool. But I think they need to made a full face helmet, it is more safety.

    @ Indie : Hola, you have the same opinion with me. Yeah for now on, riding motorcycle with safely is a must… so full motorcycle helmet is one of safety motorcycle gear that you must have. Don’t let your face take any dirt and dust because using half motorcycle helmet :)

    I heard about diesel”s helmet but i am aware of Mowie which is advanced utility head wear . Can u tell me its interesting features?

  14. Mike  September 12th

    Looks really cool. It reminds me of the helmets that fighter pilots wear. I would certainly question the safety especially if it was designed in part by Diesel.

  15. pp  October 10th

    come on is AGV.. I bet it is safe (for an open face helmet …of course)

  16. lewis  October 14th

    do you know if this is available in the uk,i cant seem to find any sites that sell it,

  17. Jean-jean  October 20th

    I just bought the helmet (which is not returnable) and I am completely bummed out! I’m a new rider and not so experienced in buying the gear. I thought the Diesel helmet would be perfect since it looked like a good combination of safety and design. Unfortunately, the ears line up right at the connecting point of the pad inside the helmet and the ear flaps and because of this the ears aren’t fully covered and as a result hear A LOT of wind noise while riding. Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed.

  18. Jesper  October 20th

    What a bummer, Jean-jean. I think you should contact Diesel/AGV, and tell them what you think.

    On the other hand. There’s wind noise with all helmets. At high speeds I hear nothing but wind noise wearing my Arai full face. Which is supposed to be one of the least noisy helmets.

    Of course it varies. I have not tried the Diesel helmet. I you find it too noisy I believe you.

    People on road bikes wear open faced helmets, so open face helmets do serve a purpose in protection. These types of helmets are good for scooter riders or people who cruise around. Ofcourse if you use the highway or a fast road bike you wouldn’t want to wear this, the wind would be ridiculous youd swallow bugs and the protection isn’t sufficient.

    Well, after reading all comments just need to wait ntil mine arrives, just bought it from the only site who sells it in UK and imported it to this hot island, Dominican Republic, where I ride everyday in the city, Santo Domingo, a Ducati Monster s4r and because of the weather here I decided to buy an open face helmet for the city rides and the Mowie was my option! Ordered mate black with an extra visor tint and all cost me rd$13,000.00 / 36 = us$361.00 shipped to Miami then to Dom Rep will be like us$25.00
    I know it’s an open face helmet so that’s not the issue here, I do have around 5 more full face different helmets for the highway but the all around city rides with this weather Mowie will be fine!
    As soon as it arrives will publish it in the red and will add up the final comment! I hope will like it!

  28. Moch  March 1st

    Finally I got the helmet, and I like it a lot, it is comfortable and is not noisy-

  29. duclover  January 10th

    I find open face helmets to be safer, as full face helmets restrict my vision and are heavier. My $0.02.
