Helmets are an age-old industry with limited experts and planet-friendly options—and we want to change that. We've used environmentally-friendly alternatives, tracked the origin of our materials and found manufacturers with integrity.
We didn’t wear helmets, but after the loss of a friend, we wondered why. Especially after researching the statistics. In the US, there are roughly 1,000 bicycle-related fatalities in a year. That’s why we created Thousand to design helmets that we’d actually want to wear and therefore help save lives.
We were inspired by everything from vintage motorcycle helmets to Jack Kerouac's travels. From 7 a.m. commutes, to Sunday rides by the beach.
At the end of this project, we will send you a survey so you can select your helmet size. Check out the drawing below to get an early start!
Thousand is a group of social entrepreneurs, design junkies, and storytellers. We're obsessed with everything from value chains to color ways.
Risks and challenges
We have established a relationship with one of the top helmet manufacturers in the business and will have boots on the ground to oversee every major production milestone. Thus, 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.
We've designed our helmet to exceed all US (CPSC) and European (EN1078) Safety Standards. Though we're unable to complete our certifications until after production (by law), we are confident that is our design will exceed all testing requirements.
