Veldt Helmets are designed and made by the same team who developed the stunningly beautiful Atéliers Ruby helmets that took the high-end motorcycle helmet market by storm a few years ago. Ruby co-founder Jean-Etienne Prach founded Veldt on the Isle of Man, a place already sacred to motorcyclists, and he brought a number of former Ruby employees with him.
From the outset all Veldt helmets have been designed to be modular with a removable chin bar, and either an open face or a flip-up shield. All of their helmets have a shell made from Japanese carbon fibre with a close-fitting design made possible by multiple shell sizes – allowing you to get a perfect fit and avoid looking like a bobblehead.
Veldt offer a full 5 year warranty with all of their helmets, a rarity nowadays that gives significant peace of mind. Sizing ranges from XS to XXL and you can choose between ECE 22-05 or DOT motorcycle helmet safety certification.
The Desert Race x Fuel Motorcycles Veldt Helmet
This limited edition helmet has a distinct helmet livery by the team at The Desert Race, an alternative motorcycling festival that encourages a diverse blend of motorcycle fans, motocross racers, beginners and pros, custom bike builders, and speed shops with decades of history to race in a range of diverse conditions.
The helmet features a removable snap-on visor and the signature removable chin bar, now with a distinctive orange and black checkered pattern. During any desert racing the helmet’s High IQ® Cool Comfort technology that delivers high-tech moisture management will be a welcome feature too.
