It all started with a simple observation:
“There was always something slightly wrong with urban cycle helmets and riding hats. If the helmet had a good design, then it wasn’t comfortable. If it was comfortable, then it wasn’t light enough. If it was light, then it didn’t give enough protection and wasn’t very hard-wearing.
So, we decided to create cycle helmets and riding hats which are (almost) perfect, and which manage to combine all these elements: we call them mega-helmets” explain Etienne-Marie de Boissieu and Benoît Denis who created the EGIDE brand in 2014.
