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.
- Douglas Fir A high quality, kiln dried, dense grain native softwood harvested and milled sustainably by a small operation in Western Oregon.
- Big Leaf Maple salvaged from Oregon forests.
- Black Walnut salvaged from Oregon Farms and Urban forests.
- Custom - Myrtlewood, Madrone, Oak, Ash, Sycamore, Redwood etc. We can find other woods to use in making your helmet. Generally they add $75-$125 to the deposit price. For exotic grain woods like Burls the price is typically an additional $125-$250. Laminated wood helmets typically add $75-$125. When you order Custom we will correspond with you directly to determine the wood you want/have chosen and let you know the extra fee. Contact us if you have questions!
