Helmet Auction FAQ
What is this auction?
To celebrate a decade of riding dapper for men’s health, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride and our helmet partner, Hedon, have brought together 10 artists from around the world to create 10 unique helmets to be auctioned off in 2021. Each incredible artist is provided with a helmet shell and challenged to create a masterpiece of their choosing that expresses their artistic style on an unconventional canvas.
Where are the funds being donated?
All proceeds going directly to The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride’s charity partner, Movember.
What size and certification are the helmets?
