One thing GLUE couldn’t get out of our heads is Daft Punk’s single, “Get Lucky”, which opened the penny farthing race at the IG Nocturne Series which took place on Saturday, 8 June 2013.
That and coupled with the news that the Atherton siblings, Rachel and her brother Gee, won the downhill competition for the elite men’s and women’s categories for the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup 2013 at Fort William, Scotland, reminds us of helmets.
We blogged about ugly helmets before on GLUE (“Adios Fugly Helmets”, 6 Nov 2012), but this time, we dedicate an article to the evolution of Daft Punk helmets, with image courtesy of Agent RayBans, a member of The Daft Punk Club. We doubt their helmet style will go down a treat with the road cycling types. And especially the hipster set. But the MTB crowd, like the Drunk Cyclist for example, might dig them. Have a browse.
