Based in Los Angeles, California, Thousand has been making a name for themselves as one of the best style-focused bicycle helmet brands around. Of course, since the whole point of a helmet is to keep your cranium safe, they’re also taking steps to make sure their stylish cranium protectors are also loaded with spectacular safety features — which is illustrated perfectly in their newest release, the Chapter MIPS Helmet.
Though its fairly sleek and minimalist in its appearance, this helmet has a few handy safety features built into it that you might not garner at-a-glance. For starters, as the name suggests, its equipped with MIPS technology — which helps to protect wearer’s brains from both impacts and torsional injuries, making this a remarkably safe option with extra protection from concussions. But it doesn’t stop there; it also features a magnetic 50-lumen rechargeable LED taillight for added visibility and it has a hidden PopLock so you can keep your helmet out of the hands of thieves when not wearing it. Boasting both CPSC and CE EN 1078 safety certifications, this handsome bike helmet is available now in a trio of colorways for $135 each.
