Cycling can be a dangerous mode of transport, whether it’s due to the adrenaline-fueled decent down a treacherous trail, or the vulnerability during the morning commute. Because of this, rider safety is something to be taken very seriously! The Ventoux Hybrid Helmet ingeniously bridges the gap between the comfortable and lightweight open-face and the all-head protection focused full-face to create a product that incorporates the best features of both these products!
The slim and lightweight design has been designed to take anything that’s thrown its way, and this has been achieved through a series of unique features; an extended rear section to provide protection the back of the head, polarised lenses to protect the user’s eyes, and perhaps most significantly, the chin strap that creates a lower impact point without compromising on visibility and weight.
Comfort was carefully considered during the design process, the hard-outer shell that features improved airflow, houses a soft, padded lining with a mesh guard for the ultimate comfort!

Protected in Every Situation
“This product is made to correspond to several uses and offers the best facial protection in every situation and every environment. The main problem with the actual product is the rotation of the helmet around the strap attach under the chin during frontal impacts on the ground. This rotation uncovers face and forehead which concentrate most of the injuries,” Designer Petricoul told YD.
