What colour?

 

"Say hello to my little friend" - our new colour.

As you may, or not, all our helmet colours have a musically inspired name.

All explained here: https://www.hedkayse.com/pages/colours

So, what is this new colour? What will we call our new colour?

We want you to help us.

We want you to name our new colour! Using the convention outlined on our Colour page, send us your suggestions.

The person's suggestion who we deem the best, and use, will be sent the very first one of this colour from the production line.

Get creative.

 

Leave your suggestions in the comments.

Another take on a couple of other previous suggestions I made……..

“Urban Black” instead of “Keith Black” inspired by Keith Urban and his song Black Leather Jacket. A play on the city or urban environment.

OR

“Urban Blacktop” or “Urban Gravel” or “Urban Tarmac” instead of “Keith Blacktop” inspired by Keith Urban and his song Where The Blacktop Ends. A play on city or urban roads.

To fit with your current scheme of naming helmet colors, I’d suggest “Steve Grey” after Steve Strange who sang “Fade to Grey”.

According to Wikipedia – Shades of Black….“Outer Space” is an off black colour created in 1998. The colour is therefore David Black inspired by David Bowie and his song Space Oddity. The play here is that Hedkayse One “takes on” the outer space around your head. As David Bowie says …… “Take your protein pills and put your helmet on”.

Just to add some variations to my previous suggestions…….
The following colours would also apply for the vary same reasons previously stated.

Matt Grey instead of the previous Matt Black. (Could be grey or black)
Paul Asphalt or Paul Tarmac vs. Paul Granite. (Could be Asphalt or Tarmac or Granite)
Adele Grey vs. Adele Graphite or Adele Black. (Could be grey, graphite or black)

Marc Black. Marc Almond song Black Satin. As it turns out Marc’s first group was a duo named Soft Cell. This is a play on the TAF flexible outer shell or soft outer cell.

I am trying to be creative as per the instructions. Black Leather Jacket is an off black colour created in 1994 according to Wikipedia. In this case the colour will be “Keith Black” inspired by Keith Urban and his song Black Leather Jacket.

Also note that a dark black leather jacket becomes greyish or off black with time as it gets worn or broken in to become the perfect colour. There is also a play here in that a leather jacket provides protection for motorcyclists just as Hedkayse One provides protection for cyclists.

Matt Black. Named after Matthew Good. Matthew Good Band – Indestructible. A play on both the colour and on how the helmet absorbs multiple hits.

Alannah Black, Alannah Myles, Black Velvet
OR
Paul Granite, Paul McCartney, The Long and Winding Road. A play on dark granite setts used as road pavers.
OR
Adele Graphite or Adele Black….. Adele, One and Only. A play on the name Hedkayse One with it being the one and only helmet needed.
OR
Davy’s Grey. Davy Jones, Maybe It’s Because I’m a Londoner. A play on the colour Davy’s Gray which is a dark grey colour made from powdered slate, iron oxide and carbon black named after an English painter.

The color (colour) is Jerry grey. Jerry Garcia composed the music for and performed Touch of Grey for the Grateful Dead.

“I will survive” sang the Dead Head, while wearing a HedKayse helmet.

Sorry for sending this twice. Not sure if the first was lost or awaiting approval.

Patti graphite: Patti Smith High on rebellion -Here I am struggling and filled with dread
Afraid that I’ll never squeeze enough
Graphite from my damaged cranium
To inspire or asphyxiate any eyes
Grazing like hungry cows across the stage or page.
