Coming soon... Charles Owen eLumen8


After a recent visit to BETA International 2017, Charles Owen’s Alice Marshall previews some of the new products which will be arriving at Nags Essentials soon. The company, which was founded in 1911, is renowned for its innovative research to help ensure a safer world for riders.

"Charles Owen was thrilled to debut the eLumen8 at BETA International 2017, a helmet which blends tradition with the latest high technology safety. With four ventilation holes and a gently sloping, tapered peak, the eLumen8 has a sporty profile.

The helmet's black leather look six-point GRpx® technology harness offers unsurpassed stability and is combined with an easy snap helmet buckle that features a magnet to draw the clasp together, allowing a rider to secure their harness with just one hand.

Its sparkly centre panel is coordinated to complement both black and navy options, making the eLumen8 a great choice for the athlete who wants to be noticed in the arena. It is available in suede or leather look in sizes 6 3/8-8, or 52-65, and in Round Fit in 6 7/8-7¼, or 56-59. The eLumen8 is kitemarked to PAS015:2011 and VG1 01.040 2014-12, CE marked to VG1 01.040 2014-12 and certified by SEI to ASTM F1163:15a.

We’ve also added some fantastic new skullcaps, the JS1 and JS1 Pro, to our range. The lightweight and deep-fitting JS1 features an impact-resistant ABS shell with ten ventilation slots for a cooler ride and a four-point webbing harness to ensure riders' comfort and safety.

The JS1 Pro adds an upgraded leather harness with reinforced nylon webbing and suede padding under the chin to provide even greater rider security and comfort. Both are Kitemarked and CE marked to VG1 01.040 2014-12 and PAS015:2011.
