Royal Enfield has unveiled the latest Pinstriped Helmets, a limited edition of 200 helmets, each with the iconic, hand-painted pinstripes. A Classic design, fused with modern technology – these will bring the two together in this limited edition collection where all of these helmets are adorned with the legendary pinstripes. A century-old tradition, the pinstripes, also called Madras stripes, are still practised at Royal Enfield. The Madras Stripes symbolizes the simplicity, authenticity and craftsmanship that has endured the test of time.
The stripes have been painted on the tanks of the Bullet unceasingly for the last six decades. Helmets are the closest you get to Royal Enfield’s core offering and there is no better product to further this story. This new collection features 200 limited edition helmets, each with the stripes and a unique number, hand-painted the original way like the motorcycle tanks by Kumar brothers. These go for sale in December and will be available on the Apparel store for a limited sale period. At Royal Enfield’s Thiruvottiyur plant, the Kumar brothers are responsible for getting one thing perfect, day in and out – the Madras stripes. The Kumar brothers are the second generation of Pinstripers. They have been doing it for 24 years now and their uncle before them did it for 53 years.
The new helmet model has extraordinary feature highlights. The outer shell is made from fibreglass for superior strength and safety. The interiors incorporate genuine leather beading, single stitched leather trim on the periphery of the shell. The high-density EPS liner with air ventilation system is designed in a manner which allows proper airflow and circulation hence making the ride comfortable regardless of the weather. These limited edition helmets will be exclusively available at Royal Enfield’s online store in December 2019 and will be a limited run of 200 helmets.
