Gannet Design and NZI Helmets Deliver Pure Retro Sweetness

It's not the first time either Ulfert Janssen or NZI helmets are present here, but this is the first time these two names are presented in conjunction. NZI is a Spanish motorcycle helmet manufacturer while Janssen is making a name for Gannet Design in transport design. The result of their collaboration is a range of retro-themed helmets that are simply perfect if you ride a classic bike.

These helmets are in fact part of the new catalog, and the series is entitled the Garage Collection. One of the coolest things about Ulfert Janssen is that he works with both cars and motorcycles with pretty much the same ease and pleasure, so the new collection also includes two Porsche-themed Roadracer lids.

As for the rest, Gannet Design preferred to work with classic themes. NZI's newest garage lids come with Scrambler, cafe-racer and even retro concept bike decorations.

The color palette is rather spartan and evokes the racing-themed prints half a century ago, enhancing the vibe of road races of yore. Even though most of the NZI lids are open-face ones, the Garage Collection also includes two full-face helmets, for those who value the extra protection they provide when the going gets tough.NZI are the masters of custom helmet graphics
NZI are well-known for the custom graphics services they offer, and seeing them teaming up with motorcycle designers is quite promising. NZI Helmets even have an online service customers can use to upload their own graphics and preview how their helmet of choice would look like. In case the result meets the expectations, they can order the helmet directly from the web-based shop.

Having motorcycle designers working on new graphics might provide NZI with a most welcome boost, and a new trend might start even. That is, having cool helmets with neat retro-themed graphics offered for a fraction of the price similar lids can be had for. And we can only hope this collaboration continues and delivers even more goodies.
