28/12/2013 – Ruby Ruby Ruby…


Since we got back from our little adventure depicted in The Delivery we had forgotten how comfortable the helmets Ruby let us use for the 1000 mile journey were. Once again those good ol boys based in Paris let us use another ‘Castel St Germain‘ for the Bulldog shoot.

Personally I am not a big fan of full face helmets whatever the style and although admittedly they do stop your face from being rubbed along the tarmac in the event of an ‘off’, I still dont get the entire satisfaction that I get when riding with a simple open faced number.

However I have met my match. Le Castel, as I am sure you agree looks the business, espieally with the tinted visor and even better no fogging up due to the clever and eye catching ventilation in the chin piece. Safe to say if I were to suddenly become sensible and cross over to the dark side and buy a full face then I am pretty sure it would be one of these beauty’s.

They may not be British made but we are keen promoters of brands whose products showcase quality workmanship and design wherever they originate from.

Ruby Helmets are one of the best examples. The guys at Ruby were kind enought to let us use two of there fine collection,the Le Castel and Le Pavillon. Its hard to believe how comfortable we were throughout the entire journey considering we rode through bands of torrential rain and intense sunshine most days. The details to each helmet are fantastic,a delicate chrome rim around the edging of the Pavillon,  small ‘ventilation’ holes in the chin piece on the Castelle to stop misting on the visor and not to mention the Ruby Angel inside watching over us at all times.
