Wall Street Journal Magazine
Resembling a polo player’s headpiece, this new cycling gear from British firm Dashel Helmets is a stylish alternative to the sportier options on the market. Map, the industrial arm of renowned design studio Barber & Osgerby, consulted on the form. Hand-molded at a Cornwall factory, each helmet weighs less than a pound, thanks to its carbon-fiber shell, and features a durable foam lining that won’t degrade over time. $225; dashel.cc. —Christopher Ross

'Get a Head Start With a Carbon Fibre Helmet'
'A bike helmet might be essential for safety on the roads but they don’t half bring down a look. If you've always thought a helmet was anything but chic then let us introduce Dashel, the new brand merging road safety with style, and finally a product that female bikers will be proud to wear. Sustainably made in Cornwall, the family-run business once made helmets for the military and marine industries – so you know safety is paramount. The helmets' carbon shell is both strong and light, while inside, the lining is made from multi-impact foam that won’t degrade over time. They’re also 100% recyclable and super comfortable. And then there’s the style – slim, modern with a hint of equestrian cool, they come in a range of subdued shades – no garish sporty prints or brash branding here. We particularly love the Cobalt Blue Gloss Finish – pair with a Breton, pea coat and skinnies for your commute. Grey and white offer a softer look and there are also Moleskin finishes available if you’re after a heritage vibe.'

'Finally! A cycle helmet that doesn’t have me looking like Brian from «New Tricks» (Google it, fellow garment gazers, Google it). Perfectly shaped carbon fibre for maximum head protection, shaped to provide style enough for next years Tweed Run and yet solid and practical for the daily slog. I tip my helmet to @dashelcyclehelmets and commend their sterling work! '

'Another important thing for me to was to get a good looking, comfortable helmet to match the bike. I went for a Dashel Cycle helmet - which is a company that was founded by an ex-colleague of mine. They also manufacture in England using premium, sustainable materials. There is a massive lack of good looking cycling helmets on the market so I was really pleased to discover them.'
