Street Smarts – Two New Helmets For Commuters

We’ve added two new helmets to our ever growing collection that are ideal for commuting – the Urban Luminite Helmet and the new BMX-style PissPot Helmet. You may be a safety-first hi-viz warrior or it may be more important that you blend in with a more contemporary urban look for when you step off the bike. Jeanswear fashion BMX style may be more your bag, or you may simply want to wear your everyday clothing on a short commute. Whatever your style, we’ve got your lid.

The reworked Urban Luminite Helmet incorporates a USB rechargeable LED light, increasing your visibility to other road users when cycling in the dark. The slim, rounded profile and removable cap style peak give it a casual aesthetic, while large vents keep your head cool. To further increase the visibility of this helmet, the rear shell has been painted using a reflective lacquer. Available in hi-viz yellow, navy, and black.

The all new PissPot Helmet was designed with input from Danny MacAskill and Kriss Kyle for hardcore street, park and dirt shredding, but with a highly reflective option alongside some more muted colours, we know it’s going to be just at home on city streets too. When we set out to design the PissPot Helmet, the target was to pack as much tech in but retain the classic look and the inclusion of a one hand micro adjustment fit system, often missing on this style of helmet, enables you to dial in the fit.
