You need to wear a helmet in order for it to do its job. But why aren’t people wearing them? There are roughly 1,000 bicycle-related fatalities every year.
That’s where the Thousand Bicycle Helmet comes in. Thousand’s mission is to reinvent the bike helmet, so people would actually want to wear them. They started a Kickstarter campaign and have raised $130,000 to date: $110,000 over their goal. They’re currently offering 4 different styles including a limited “Stay Gold” edition only offered through this campaign. By using environmentally-friendly alternatives and modern design, this is the helmet you’ll want to wear.
The added kicker to these helmets is their “PopLock.” A secret top that you pop open and slide your lock through when locking your bike: a convenient way to store your helmet, so you don’t have to lug it around.
