About

We created NIMBO with the idea to encourage people to wear helmets and ride safe. NIMBO is a lifestyle brand and is here to make helmets look cool and artsy, so we actually want to wear them + to support the independent artists who designed them and promote them and their amazing work! NIMBO helmets are made for bike riders, skaters and rollerbladers. 

 We’ve brought together an all-star team of extremely talented artists to create some truly awesome designs. 

You will be able to pick the specific design that you would like to receive in the survey we’ll send you once the campaign is over.  

We started with 30 potential designs and narrowed them down to 5 to begin with, through four rounds of voting with our friends and customers. 

Here are the finalists!

They come in sizes S, M & L, and they also have a dial-adjustable fit system. Will retail for $60 in our store, but will cost as low as $40 for you early backers.

In the US, there are roughly 1,000 bicycle-related fatalities in a year. Bicycle lanes and properly used bicycle equipment may reduce the risk of fatalities. In NY, nearly all bicyclists who died (97%) were not wearing a helmet. That’s why we created NIMBO, to design cool helmets that we actually want to wear and will help save lives. To do this, we had the brilliant idea to make the helmets literally works of art! This way, we get to promote some amazing artists that are hidden gems. The world should know about them! 

The word NIMBO is a Spanish name that stands for the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place. It means halo or aura. 

We spent over 1 year testing different prints and different helmet models for better comfort and safety. 

Amazing Print Quality: Print quality is our #1 priority. These helmets look stunning up close. 

Remarkable Comfort: Besides the 3 different sizes, every helmet has a dial-adjustable fit system to provide better comfort. 

Light and Thick: the helmet is made of ABS on the outside and EPS on the inside for better impact safety. It only weights 365g/0.8lb which makes it light and comfy. 

Secure and Fresh: it has a fasten buckle for security and 11 vents. 

At the end of this project, we will send you a survey so you can select your desired helmet size. Check out the chart below to get an early start! 

Everyone who orders a helmet will be able to pick the specific design that they would like to receive. To purchase a NIMBO helmet, click "Back This Project". Then select the helmet reward tier and submit your pledge. After the campaign is over, we'll contact you through Kickstarter with a survey asking you to pick a design, size and provide your shipping address.

To order multiple helmets, just select the tier and multiply the total (including shipping) by the number of helmets you want.

If you have any questions please check the FAQ at the bottom of the page.

Risks and challenges

We are beginners on Kickstarter, but our manufacturing partners have years of experience in the industry. We spent over 1 year designing, printing, and receiving finalized samples from them. We are aware that manufacturing physical products is tough, and while we don't foresee any major production issues, we recognize that unexpected hiccups can happen. We promise to be transparent and to keep our backers updated on any potential delays.

Our helmets meet the CE EN-1078 certification standards.

Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step with you!
