Woodgrain Helmet by Mission Bicycle

  • When I was a teenage, I hated wearing a helmet on bike rides. For appearance’s sake, I loathed the bulkiness and the gaudy colors that were little help in making the helmet visually appealing. Perhaps my sentiments would have been different had I owned Woodgrain Helmet. Designed by Mission Bicycle, the faux-wood (the real thing is molded from plastic) helmet is stunning in its realism, and looks like a handcrafted piece fresh from a tree. Decorated with the fine lines and whorls present in the grain of real wood, the helmet also features a leather chinstrap as a sophisticated alternative to the mundane black strap. Now you can ride in style and comfort, for the helmet includes sixteen vents for circulation – and prevention of helmet hair.
