'Gladiator' Dome Protector Channels Ancient Rome and Your Inner Badass

The first thing I can say about the Gladiator Helmet is that it allows for excellent ventilation. This unusual dome protector features a ribbed cage-like frame to envelop your head without the added bulk of a typical helmet.

The Gladiator Helmet is designed by Canedo Studio, and Yanko Design reports that it comes in three different sizes, adjustable through a series of rubber attachments. The curious design of the helmet is inspired by the helmets worn by gladiators in ancient Rome.
