Who: Ed Hardy Helmets By Christian Audigier
What: Motorcycle Helmets
Wear: Best known for his bright and colorful tattoo designs, Ed Hardy has teamed up with noteworthy French designer Christian Audigier to combine their love of flash and style and bring it to the motorcycle world with the release of these new helmets. You can't go to any Hollywood hot spot without seeing one of the Ed Hardy brands on someone's head, shoulders, or butt. The designs are easy to spot, with bright colors mixed with skulls and dragons along with snakes and daggers. Hardy has retired from doing actual tattoos, but now concentrates on tattoo and non-tattoo based art forms, printmaking, drawing, and painting all the things that can be transformed to clothing. In 2004, Christian Audigier licensed the rights to produce the Ed Hardy clothing line, which is based on Hardy's imagery and trademarks.
Christian wanted to expand the reach of the Ed Hardy brands into the motorcycle world with the one thing that he felt every rider should use, so Ed Hardy Helmets by Christian Audigier was born. The new helmets found a way to bring old school tattoo designs combined with modern day technology in helmet safety. The helmet line used is from KBC Performance Helmets and offers quality safety with both DOT and Snell standards.
