Diesel’s new collection of motorcycle helmets are as cool as they are practical. These Air Force-styled helmets feature a stitched neck protector and a padded lining that is both removable and washable.

The style of these flashy Diesel motorcycle helmets comes from an aeronautical military design, and was created in collaboration with AGV.

Implications - The recession caused many commuters to ditch their gas-guzzling SUVs and sedans in favor of more eco-friendly rides such as bicycles and motorcycles. These consumers still yearn for the personalization that a car offers, and to respond to this need, designers are increasingly creating aesthetically pleasing helmets and jackets for riders that offer protection and a way to express their personal style.
