ONCE UPON A TIME
EGIDE is the result of a project based on the favourite pastime of two childhood friends. A project which consists in offering high-end helmets designed for urban cycling. Helmet brands are widespread, although it has to be said that models suffer from a lack of variety and truly original helmets are hard to come by. In order to fill such a void and bring a breath of fresh air, Etienne-Marie de Boissieu and Benoît Denis set up EGIDE in 2014.
A TIMELESS BEAUTY
EGIDE’s ambition is to develop cycling helmets into fully-fledged fashion accessories. Beyond their functional purpose, EGIDE helmets aim to accompany you with elegance on your cycling endeavours. Combining vintage aesthetics and hi-tech materials, EGIDE helmets are truly fashionable items. Yet more than just a passing fad, they are effectively timeless. Inspired by helmets from different ages and various warfare and sporting activities, their complex design eventually leads to the utmost simplicity. The “ultimate sophistication”, as Leonardo de Vinci would say. It therefore has to be said that EGIDE helmets are amongst the very best in terms of their design as well as their high-quality finish.
FROM PARIS TO MILAN: EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY
This timeless collection relies on the proven know-how of craft workshops specialised in helmets and luxury accessories located around the city of Milan. The production of the shell is amongst one of the most stringent manufacturing processes in the world in terms of safety. The coating and the interior are entirely handmade for each helmet, thus enabling a flawless high-quality finish. EGIDE also happens to be the only helmet brand to offer a wide variety of superior materials, either classic ones such as leather and linen or the more high-tech ones such as carbon and Kevlar.
EGIDE Helmet Inner Padding
EGIDE Helmets are available in three sizes:
S, M and L (54 to 59 cm).
You can change inner padding to other if you feel so.
EGIDE helmets are fitted with an inner padding. It is recommended to hand wash the padding with mild soap or to put it in the washing machine at low temperature.

2) Slowly slide the plastic edges along the side of the helmet, placing their notch in the middle of the clips.
3) Push the plastic edges down into the side of the helmet starting with the front clip. Make sure the plastic edges are properly pushed down near the clips.
