Thousand Bike Helmet
No matter how many bicycle safety PSAs you’ve seen on TV, it’s still way too easy to leave your helmet at home, due mainly to its typical clunky styling and awkward fit. Thousand is looking to change all that.
Aiming to “reinvent the bike helmet,” Thousand is designed for the urban explorer, featuring a secret, convenient and secure way to leave your helmet behind. Just pop the little circle on the side and slide your lock through. It’s even backed with the company’s Bike Thief Guarantee, as they’ll buy you another helmet if it gets stolen. They’re calling the design “vintage moto meets modern minimalist,” and it features premium matte rubberized finishes, vegan leather straps reinforced with nylon webbing, seven air vents with internal cooling channels & liner, and a magnetic buckle. It’s available in four colors, including a Kickstarter-only hand painted “Stay Gold” edition. [Purchase]
