The Abus x Pikeur AirLuxe Supreme Riding Hat is the ultimate choice for riders of all levels, developed to perfectly blend performance, safety and style. Tested to meet current safety standards (VG1, ASTM, Kitemark, PAS), this hat provides high levels of protection in case of a fall, engineered with a lightweight, yet tough, ABS outer shell material.

Very sleek and stylish in design. I love the contrast of the matte shell and the sparkling panels twinned with the suede-like top. 

Fits like a glove – I love the turn dial fitting element, it makes it feel moulded to my head and very secure. 

I have schooled at home, hacked and been to riding club clinics in the Abus x Pikeur Airluxe Supreme. It kept my head very well ventilated whilst working hard thanks to the 17 ventilation openings. It isn’t draughty however and doesn’t feel as though it was letting anything in on a windy ride out. 

The turn-dial back allows your ponytail/bun to sit neatly underneath it, not messing with the fit of the hat at all. I love that it is also QUIN-ready – I am lucky that Percy is a pretty good boy to hack out but know that I would have liked this feature on a few of my previous rides plus would give an extra level of security when out cross-country. 

I also like the removable/washable antibacterial inserts.

This isn’t my usual style of hat, however, I am a convert! A little bit of sparkle is the touch I never knew I needed!
