About Us

WHAT WE DO

We develop and create exquisite luxury motorcycle helmets and motorcycle gear for everyday heroes, that like to choose something exceptional.

Within few years, with the help of our models «Pavillon» and «Belvedere», there was a revolution in the area of motorcycle helmets that changed the attitude away from an obligatory protective device towards a luxurious accessory and an object of desire.

We at Les Ateliers Ruby™ help our customers to underline their exclusivity by offering a big variety of different designs for our helmets and endless possibilities of combination. In fact, you can even get your own individual custom design. Contact us to learn more.

 

VISION

Always striving to reach supreme quality in what we do, we at Les Ateliers Ruby™ have the objective to achieve the finest helmets in the world with respect to functionality, as they are comfortable, very light and use state-of-the-art technology, as well as with regards to style & aesthetics.

In addition to that, we see the style of motorcyclists as an integration of details and aim in future to equip the perfectionists among them with exceptional apparel to create an even more distinct individuality, accompanied by luxury that generates a special relationship with the owner.

These requirements towards ourselves make Ruby an inevitable brand for any style conscious motorcyclist who loves to ride.
