PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE CUSTOM-DESIGNED FOR KALI SAHA L/XL HELMETS
Mr Blackwell is very familiar with disguises. Sometimes he has to wear one, for reasons which can't be detailed here. At other times he chooses to go incognito to avoid autograph hunters, geezers with long-winded Sturmey Archer stories, and freelance assassins.
Anyone wishing to disguise themselves as English cycling gentry can now do so with complete authenticity by scoring one of these genuine Tweed helmet covers designed and made exclusively for Blackwell and Sons by the incredible team at Hills Hats in Petone.
Classically styled from pure British Tweed, these will keep your bonce warm during mid-winter outings and hide any unsightly dings or scratches in your helmet, which of course you wear at all times while cycling because that, good citizen, is the law.
They also happen to be the perfect accessory for a certain Easter-time highlight on the cycling calendar - The National Tweed Ride. Coincidence? Don't be silly.
Hills Hats designed these masterpieces to fit the L/XL size of Kali Saha helmets, so we cannot guarantee it will fit other helmet models. Please direct your angry letters to our lawyers in Djibouti. But to make you feel better, here are some fascinating photos of the helmet covers in development.
