2012 GEAR GUIDE: BIANCHI x GUCCI HELMET
See, track racing is so hot right now that even Gucci is getting in on the game. This Bianchi collabo helmet obviously takes its cues from pista helmets commonly seen on the velodrome. The polycarbonate (plastic) helmet comes in two sizes with a mirrored visor, luxurious leather straps and the trademark Gucci stripes on a black or a white base. If you feel like flossin’ up like a bigass spender at the next local track meet, this domepiece will set you back $890 at the Gucci store. Bling!
But we all know only basic bitches wear that shit so if you don’t don’t wanna bother, try showing some love for an up-and-coming velodrome and get a carbon Casco Warp 1501 for next season. At $310, it’s pretty much a third the price of the Gucci lid, all proceeds go to the development of the Chicago Velo Campus and the Casco is actually designed for track racing (looks cooler too).
