Made with a stainless steel transmission chain, this DSD (Dirty Side Down) Motoring helmet lock appears to be the strongest and most secure we’ve seen yet.
It’s the labour of UK father and son Andras and Thomas Torkos who bought special milling machinery and a lathe to make the helmet locks.
The helmet lock is made of stainless steel transmission chain, a burly stainless steel lock, nylon covers to prevent damaging your bike and a Cordura weatherproof helmet bag with a fleece lining to prevent scratching your helmet.
It looks a bit like a gimp mask, but it’s tough and simply won’t budge. The only way to break it would also involve demolishing the hemet and/or bike!
Andras says he has sunk “all our money in this project”.
He came up with the idea because he didn’t want to carry his expensive helmet to his construction job as it could get damaged and he didn’t want to leave it on the bike where it could be scratched or stolen.
“I used to have a top box on a previous bike, but it was too clunky and big for my (Yamaha) FZ6. It spoils the look of the bike,” Andras says.
