Note: Use scroll down box in upper right corner for the Holz in various wood types and prices. Read below for direction on ordering customized wood choices. We will contact you about sizing once your order is placed.
The Holz is an edgier, muscular design meant to reflect the contours of the human form. Its shape features a subtle brim to shed rain in bad weather and give shade in the Summer. The Holz design also provides significant skull coverage and a rear cut that guarantees full neck articulation as well as room for hair that’s been tied back. The Holz comes standard with Cork impact protection.
Each model is offered "Standard" built with 3 types of wood and a Custom option.
All of our products feature our patented technology using wood as a "First Line of Defense" taking advantage of its inherent structural properties that allow it to absorb energy in the event of a significant impact, adding protective redundancy to the EPS foam or Low Density Cork system that lies beneath. Additionally, in models with wood and cork together, there is a wholly organic helmet shell and liner that naturally resists the effects of UV degradation that synthetic helmet materials are more vulnerable to. This means you won't need to toss a weather worn and sunburnt helmet in the trash every few years only to buy another.
