To celebrate a decade of riding dapper for men’s health, The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride released its Decade of Dapper Helmet Auction, in partnership with helmet partner, Hedon. The auction, which went live on September 30th, brought in some big winning bids for the special helmets.

Out of all the helmets to go under the hammer, this Joel Clark lid brought in the highest bid at $3,500.

Among the list of collaborating artists are globally-renowned skateboarder and artist, Steve Caballero, and industry-revered tattoo artists, Luke Wessman and Mo Coppoletta. Each one creating their own one-of-one helmet design which were auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Each incredible artist was provided with a helmet shell and challenged to create a masterpiece of their choosing that expresses their artistic style on an unconventional canvas. The helmets were then trimmed and coated by Hedon and photographed in chic editorial-style photography.
