The Team

In 2016, the growing awareness of head trauma in sports became a personal reality for me. A series of concussions on my son Aidan's hockey team was a rude awakening on how little helmets had changed. Together with Mike and Dave, we formed KAV with the goal to protect athletes and allow them to become the best versions of themselves. Recognizing safety was more than just putting in the most advanced energy absorbing materials, we centered our efforts around fit for the athlete. With hundreds of prototypes, thousands of impact tests, and countless refinements - we present the KAV helmet and a glimpse at the future of protection.
Always Forward,
