Safety is an important consideration for anyone riding a motorbike. Helmets especially must be safe. But can they also look good? This week’s #WebsiteWednesday teamed up with design pioneers like Vanguard Motorcycles and added a touch of retro motorcycle racing’s storied past. The answer is Veldt.xyz.
Founder of Veldt.xyz, Jean-Etienne Prach, has a solid track record as a helmet designer and used to work at Les Ateliers Ruby. Their helmets came to be known around the world for their sleek designs and customizable colors, but the company closed its doors in 2014. So having an entrepreneurial mindset himself, Jean-Etienne founded Veldt.xyz, a new project that would allow him to continue producing minimalist motorcycle accessories, but with a new focus on customization.
Veldt.xyz’s helmets have proved to be darlings of the design industry, drawing rave reviews in MotoFire, RideApart, American Iron, BikeExif, The Economic Times of India, Forbes, and Return of the Racers just to name a few. But what really sets Veldt.xyz apart from other premium retro helmet makers is the ability to customize your helmet. You can either buy a good looking off-the-rack Veldt, or you can fire up their excellent helmet customizer and get the exact helmet you’ve always dreamed of. Create your custom-designed helmet and share it with us on Instagram by tagging @xyz and @veldthelmet!
The word Veldt describes an “open, uncultivated country or grassland in southern Africa.” And this is exactly what Veldt.xyz is all about – giving their customers a basis to bring the creative ideas for their helmets to life. The creators, designers, and makers of the future turn to .xyz when they want to build the next big thing.
