Hey, did you know that bicycle helmets protect your brain and could save your life? Just checking, because it seems like an awful lot of people think they exist only to decrease their cool factor. Case in point, last Friday I witnessed hundreds of cyclists in Houston on a night ride and maybe 30% were wearing helmets, which might be a generous estimate. A night ride in a busy city, what could go wrong? (Stepping off soapbox now.)
Maybe you’ll wear the Thousand Bike Helmet, if you don’t like your current one. Thousand describes the design as “Vintage Moto Meets Modern Minimalist” and that about sums it up. It also has great ventilation, a magnetic buckle, vegan leather straps, and a secret PopLock for securing it to your bike. The matte rubberized finish will actually multiply your cool factor by 3 (that’s a promise) and you can pick from 3 colors and a KickStarter-only gold edition. Back the project on KickStarter.
Available from Kickstarter, $75.00.
