MORE THAN A BRAND, A TALISMAN
Egide has kept the safety requirements from its mythological and warlike origins, but also has a certain sense of panache.
ONCE UPON A TIME
Egide was born from a project between two childhood friends regarding their favorite pastime. This project: offer high-end helmets for urban cycling. It was to fill this gap, and breathe new life into the market, that in 2014 Etienne-Marie de Boissieu and Benoît Denis created Egide.
UNDER THE AEGIS OF THE GODS
In Greek mythology, the aegis (or Egide, in French) is a magical shield worn by the gods, including Zeus and Athena. Egide, inspired by Athena, the goddess of war, wisdom, artists and artisans, claims to share these functional and aesthetic origins, based on the value of the materials they use.
A TIMELESS BEAUTY
Inspired by helmets from different eras, as well as several war helmets and sports helmets, the design is complex, but ultimately leads to simplicity. As Leonardo da Vinci once said: “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
FROM PARIS TO MILAN …
