How It Works
Protecting Your Head and the Planet in Style
KAV solves three problems with modern helmets:
People don’t enjoy wearing helmets because they look goofy or are too hot for comfort.
Helmets are optimized to prevent skull fractures and do a poor job of reducing concussions.
The manufacture of helmets leaves a wake of negative environmental consequences.
Each helmet is fabricated around your head measurements providing a superior fit, improved aerodynamics and a flattering profile. Personalization made possible by the KAV PerFit System - customization software feeding our 3D printers.
While your helmet is unique to you, it benefits from a universal set of technologies to reduce linear and rotational impact forces. We started with the science of head trauma and built impact rigs before a pencil began even sketching our first helmet.
Net Zero Emissions
Protecting you and protecting the environment aren’t mutually exclusive. Our made-to-measure process means we only make what’s needed and fabricated here in Redwood City, California. So there’s no excess inventory, or shipping products from halfway across the world.
We are parents, athletes, stewards, and engineers dedicated to pushing the limits of technology so you can safely push your limits. Whether it's on your bike or on the ice, we've just begun.
