So you arrive at an event or festival, what do you do with your helmet? Chain it to your front wheel? Risk the helmet park? Carry it in your hand? Not any more!
The guys at Winchester Goods Co have come up with an ingenious idea, but simple one. The helmet Sling.
The accessory we have always wanted! A simple solution to an age old problem; How do you carry your helmet about safely when off the bike, without actually, err, carrying it? Enter stage left, the Wentworth Sling.
The Sling is a helmet carry strap made from premium 'wet' wax cotton - exactly like that used in premium wax cotton jackets. With robust quad-stitching on the 8oz waxed cotton strap, diamond-quilting on the padded 16oz shoulder and tongue-pads, that provides comfort and protects the helmet from scratches. Lined with a corduroy backing that helps prevent slipping while carrying.
Designed to be tough and durable the Sling comes with a heavy duty military quick release buckle for fast deployment, that can withstand 25kg of force, so will help prevent the little scrote who might want to snatch your helmet from you getting away with it, as well as not opening while you are riding with a helmet or if you happen to get it caught on something. The Sling is built for a lifetime of protecting and caring for the thing that keeps you safe, your helmet.
Sling is a helmet carry strap for riders, everywhere, for use with all helmets, either through the chinbar or through the chinstrap.
The Sling has adjustable length and folds up to put in a pocket or bag when not in use.
Originally developed during the early days of lockdown restrictions easing in the UK when entering a shop or pub mean't balancing your helmet on something nearby while you put on a face-mask and disinfected your hands, the Wentworth Sling has evolved into a premium, practical carry strap for a huge range of situations, like ; carrying your pillions helmets, how to carry your helmet while shopping and what to do with it at festivals and events, no more leaving it chained to your wheel, or trusting the helmet park!
