The Madera is based on a contemporary, popular helmet design that has become ubiquitous in the bike commuting and skateboarding world. The Madera profile provides a great balance of coverage and visibility. We offer the Madera with an EPS foam core or with Cork as the primary impact protection lining.
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.
