Are the 2 Dashel helmets as safe as each other?
Yes they are. Both models have good (safe/low impact) results). See safety testing for more
What’s the difference between the 2 helmets?
The Carbon Fibre Edition has a liner that doesn’t degrade over time. The Re-Cycle helmet needs replacing every 5 years (the liner and shell will be recycled). Both models must be replaced after a crash.
The Carbon Fibre Edition is handmade by craftspeople in small batches via moulds and is on average 40-50 grams lighter per size. The Re-Cycle helmet is injection moulded (made by machine). Both are manufactured in the UK.
The Re-Cycle helmet is fitted with an integrated dial fit system whereas the Carbon Fibre Edition has a pad fit system.
Returns and Exchanges
Can I buy Dashel Helmets if I am based outside of Europe?
Yes. Please note Dashel Cycle Helmets have been tested to EN1078 - The European Standard. Dashel Cycle Helmets are therefore only intended for use in Europe and any use outside this territory will be at your own risk and we disclaim all liability thereto. Post launch we will be adding certification for other continents.
Ventilation, Vents, Venting
The helmet has 5 vent holes – these aren’t always easy to see in photographs.
Do you make children’s helmets?
We plan to launch a line specifically for children in future using the multi-impact liner
combined with a cheaper shell. The Small helmet can fit a 54-56cm head so will fit many children. EN1078 means the helmet is suitable for cycling and scooting. See Sizing/How to Measure Your Head before ordering.
Will you make extra large helmets?
Are the Dashel helmet loops vegan/vegetarian?
The new helmets use faux leather. The carbon fibre versions use leather but will move to vegan leather as stock of leather offcuts runs out. If you’d prefer a carbon fibre helmet with a leather loop, then there is no charge for this, however the lead time will be longer. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
