Cycling is safe. The benefits to your health and wealth outweigh the risks, so we’re not going to try and scare you into wearing a helmet. We want to wear something slim and flattering to get about town. So we've designed cycle helmets that are light, safe and comfortable. Made sustainably in the UK.
Good design is not just looks. Products need to be good for this planet. So we’ve designed a new version of the Dashel Helmet with a liner and a shell that can be recycled, as product design and manufacture needs to be circular not linear.
And we’re not just saying that this helmet is recyclable, Dashel is going to enable the process. Our manufacturers will grind down the shell to make new ones. We've found, or are finding 3rd parties that can recycle all other parts of the helmets. We'll share more on our newsletter.
Made in the UK
We still manufacture all our helmets in the UK. *Although you can dash about in our light, vented helmets, that’s not why it’s called Dashel (pronounced dash-le) Dashel means thistle in Cornish. The first factory we worked with is in Cornwall and the thistle is one of its native flowers. As it's colourful and protective, we decided to take it as our brandname. We now manufacture in Devon, Leicestershire and Northern Ireland too.
You don't need to wear 1/2 kilo on your head! Our helmets start at 310 grams to ensure no strain on your posture
We've tested these helmets in all conditions and are certified CE EN1078
Dashel is committed to sustainable manufacturing and ethical business practices. Where is your helmet made and where does it travel from?
