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:
Youâ€™re a hotshot – youâ€™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 youâ€™re having the time of your life â€“ youâ€™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 itâ€™s as hygienic as you are too! With hygienically treated â€˜ultimate-comfortâ€™ 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) youâ€™ll look like the top 1% of dogfighters on the planet no matter how clumsy you ride, and thatâ€™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.
