Riding hat manufacturer Charles Owen is launching a new sparkly option for the YR8 hat.

Made of a special sparkle fibre the black bling and shiny silver centre complements the black or navy microsuede side panels.

“The new Sparkly YR8 gives riders of every discipline the chance to add some sparkle to their ride at an affordable price,” said Leslie Mintz from Charles Owen.

“The sparkles enhance the YR8 with a fun new style, but it is still the popular hat that is backed by over a century of research and design that goes into all Charles Owen products,” she added.

The YR8 features four discreet ventilation holes for added comfort and comes in a Charles & Owen carry box.

The sparkly colour options are: black/black bling, black/shiny silver, navy/shiny silver.

The hat is available in sizes 6 3/8 – 7 1/2 and also in a round fit 6 7/8 – 7 1/4, priced £90.

It is kitmarked to PASO15:2011 and BSEN1384 and will be available in December.
