The S+ARCKBIKE helmet by Philippe Starck looks SO good I’d wear it to bed!
Plus it has a cork liner that offers excellent impact energy management and is harvested sustainably in Portugal without damaging the trees. Cork is also naturally water-resistant and offers significant anti-microbial properties. The shell of the helmet is formed in lightweight aluminum that can be easily recycled at the end of the helmet’s lifespan.

To celebrate the one year anniversary of the S&S blog, I visited the Ducati Museum in Bologna, Italy. You could not take a bad photo in that place if you tried. It was quiet, peaceful and humbling. Just as a place of worship should be
