Ruby Belvedere: a Pavillon with a visor

Dailies -

By

Ruby_Belvedere_1.jpgWe’re seriously impressed with the elegance achieved by adding a visor to the already classy Pavillon. Its lines are at once classic, yet attain a modern minimalism that accentuates the helmet’s proportions. So it’s a shame that the Ruby Belvedere uses such heavy-handed hinges.

expect it to be noticeably more than the already pricy €500 Pavillon.

    Truly stunning. I can guess what the collectors will be wearing at the next Conours in Half Moon Bay.

    Re: the hinges Wes, your missing the Pierre Cardin point. It is a French helmet after all. Ruby is the future via 1967.

    I like it, the lines are clean, even if the hinges are a little large. Maybe they hard edge (front view) of the hinges needs to be filleted to improve it. Now, 500 pounds, is a little silly even if they are made from Unicorn skins. Is it bad to both like a product, and loath those that will probably wear it?

    sweet, although i was in a serious motorcycle accident with a open face helmet with a Johnny O’Mara rock guards as my only face protection. The guard rail wasn’t impressed and rearranged my face. Luckily I came out of the hospital looking like Brad Pitt and have been humpin’ and dumpin’ ever since. Thank you open face helmet.

    Speaking of Pierre Cardin, for the last couple of years, I’ve seen several designers being influenced by the culture. Junya Watanabe had a whole collection of Vanson leathers and Louis Vuitton also has their own helmet and matching boots.
