Isle of Man helmet manufacturer Veldt has partnered with famed shoe manufacturer Alessandro Berluti to make a carbon and leather helmet that costs a staggering amount.
At £2840 ($A6250 delivered to Australia), we believe the Berluti Veldt is the world’s most expensive production motorcycle helmet. It certainly eclipses the next most expensive helmet, the carbon-fibre Arai Corsair-X RC, at $A5600.
It features a carbon fibre shell and “patinated” (aged) Venezia leather on the peak and around the visor opening and the bottom of the helmet.
The Isle of Man helmet company makes very trendy helmets and Berlulti has made it ultra-trendy, but at a staggering cost.
Fifty years ago a famous Bell Helmets ad campaign exclaimed “If you’ve got a $10 head, wear a $10 helmet!”
Many riders pay more for a renowned brand of helmet simply because they believe their head is worth it.
However, this Berluti model takes that to the extreme.
