DESIGN & INNOVATION AWARD

2022 WINNER: ROAD EQUIPMENT

The Design & Innovation Award is both a seal of approval and the benchmark achievement for the bike industry’s highest-performing products. The Design & Innovation Award is more than just a title-giver or a round of applause for brands. It’s the definitive award that decisively tests products in the real world, assessing them in their entirety and reaching considered verdicts.

love the original look

This is biggest for me, it's a great shape with good amount of venting holes to make the helmet look modern and fast - without giving that bulbous aero/sealed up helmet look.

It’s really amazing.

I completely forget about it when riding. I actually kinda have to remind myself to take it off when I get off the bike.

Helmet fits perfectly

KAV and their customer service team are phenomenal. Helmet fits perfectly as you’d expect from a custom fit.

Protecting Your Head and the Planet in Style

KAV's mission is twofold:

Design, engineer and fabricate helmets from the ground up to maximize protection against concussions using advanced materials, manufacturing techniques and patented technologies.

Manufacture helmets with sustainability at the forefront using net zero carbon emissions manufacturing here in Redwood City, CA.

Personalization

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.

Unparalleled Protection

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.

About Us

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.
