Star Wars motorcycle helmet shows you're a true Rebel

May the Force be with you as you ride.

The Force is so strong with this one.

HJC Helmets

Now you can make every ride the trench run.

For the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, HJC released a new open-face helmet, the IS-5 Luke Skywalker X-Wing.

Don't let the stellar paint job and built-in orange visor trick you into thinking this is just for show. This open-face helmet is DOT-approved for North America, and ECE-approved for Europe. So if you do take a spill on your bike, you won't end up looking like Anakin Skywalker at the end of "Episode III."

And for the nerdier riders with more cash to burn, Mark Hamill signed 10 of these helmets to be auctioned off for the benefit of UNICEF and Starlight Children's Foundation.

If this helmet isn't doing it for you or you insist on full-face protection, HJC previously released Kylo Ren and Boba Fett helmets that should tempt your dark side.
