Back in Issue Seven of Gear Patrol magazine, we featured an interview with artist Nuno Henriques, also known on social media as @Hello Cousteau. He’s become rather well-known in select circles for his beautiful motorcycle helmet renderings and designs. Trouble is, actually getting a helmet adorned with one his unique graphics isn’t so easy. Outside of limited-run editions with HJC and AGV, you won’t find Henriques’s helmet designs anywhere on the road.
