Riders from Great Britain will have the opportunity to buy a limited edition AGV helmet named “Dreamtime”. Produced by the GP-tech, it is the most advanced model of the race line as it is made out of carbon and Kevlar.
It is a replica of the Valentino Rossi’s helmet, and so it will be produced in a number of only 250 copies and sold for 429 pounds. By simply taking a look at it, you know it is well worth it.
Dainese started in 2000 to develop an airbag system that would prove efficient in a motorcycle crash (or slide as you can see in the video) by protecting the rider’s upper body. By now, development has reached terminal faze and we can see the actual system working in a simulated fall-and-slide crash.
Scheduled to be released in 2010, the new air-bag-equipped suits (D-Tec system, as it was named) will be the first to be produced by a major bike clothing manufacturer. Let’s just hope that we won’t need it at all! But you never know for sure, do you?
Called the Roof R06 Bamboo, this motorcycle helmet was created by a French designer named Claude Morin and it stands for innovation while proving that technology doesn’t always have to be so complicated.
The bamboo fiber is simply braided together and it remains thick and safe enough to meet the European E22-05 standard referring to the protection offered by motorcycle helmets.
In fewer wards, if you are having second thought about wearing this limited edition helmet, you will probably have the opportunity to take some funny pictures of the guy that does wear the thing.
Remember how everybody advises you not to wear jeans when riding your motorcycle, but the good and reliable equipment that starts with the helmet? You should very well take that in consideration, but if you are an ingenious, adaptive and trendy kind of guy or girl you will find the fashion helmet being the most appropriate for you. Designed by Dolce & Gabbana, the helmet is simply a dressed protective shield that brings practicability together with it. For example, you can hold (...) More

The Wireless Impact Guardian helmet was invented by Brycen Spencer, engineering student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. The ingenious student had the great idea that a helmet should not only offer the needed protection in case of an impact, but make sure that the rider is ok and if not, call 911 for him and announce rescuers about the accident and the location. Simple idea, great results: Once the helmet detects a hit, a device attached to it starts beeping for approximately (...) More
Riders usually have second thoughts about riding their two-wheeled rockets as safety is a bigger and bigger concern. But a company called Hit Air has invented an air bag system that comes integrated in the motorcycle jacket and prevents the rider’s body from getting seriously injured in case of an impact followed by a serious fall (the kind that happen when car drivers turn left in front of an approaching motorcycle). The Hit Air Jacket is equipped with an automatically inflatable airbag (...) More
